Living in a motorhome is becoming an interesting option

The number of people opting to live for long periods in their motorhome has increased considerably. In any case, there are very few people like Alain Thomas, a French citizen, who had decided to sell his house and live permanently in his motorhome.
(An aside before continuing, it should be pointed out -for those people who are unaware of the RV's world. The above situation can't be compared with someone who probably remain homeless and live in a motorhome or caravan, there are even nomadic groups that live likewise. But this is a different issue –for another article-, since it is happening in many European countries).

Alain Thomas was a truck driver from Saint-Omer, his hometown in France. Years ago he lived and worked in the United States. It was there that he became a staunch supporter of Elvis Presley, music played very often in his motorhome.

Alain Thomas stated "I can’t stand living in my apartment or even in a house. My preferred living place is the motorhome, I don’t see it otherwise. It is impossible for me to stand between four walls; it really makes me feel like if I was in prison".

Of course, Alain has a 9 meter motorhome, including almost anything that one can have in a house.

"Certainly, since I was in the USA, the motorhome became for me the American dream. I knew that on my return to Europe an RV would be my house", he explained.

"I lived in an apartment Saint-Omer, he said. I live alone, I love going out on weekends. I can never sleep so well as I do in my motorhome; moreover, the outside noise does not bother me; indeed, as I am used to it, is like a kind lullaby for my ears, a great habit from many years of traveling with my truck."
