The newest living trend in Michigan is hitting the road, literally.

As young professionals try to make more out of less, RV living has become a prime choice. Coupling all the amenities people are typically used to — electricity, Wi-Fi, full bathrooms and kitchens – it’s the obvious choice for many, according to FOX 17.

“The buying trend was always that 40-60, you know, the Baby Boomers,” said Chad Neff, general manager at American RV site in Grand Rapids, Mich. “But now, everything’s getting younger.”

Neff says for those looking to save on rent, while living a fully functional and active lifestyle, an RV is the perfect choice.

“This is somewhat of a tiny house movement,” he said. “One of the trends you’re seeing is a minimalist lifestyle. Not everyone wants picket fence, mortgage, tied down to that. So this gives you versatility.”

Aside from living, Neff says a full-time move to an RV wouldn’t necessarily disrupt your job if most of your work is done from home or with the help of technology.

“It doesn’t always have to be brick and mortar, 9-5 job,” Neff said. “I can travel with a hot spot, Wi-Fi connection, a laptop – I can go wherever I want.”
