Keely Bergeron was on the verge of finishing graduate school for physical therapy last year. Before the big event, the couple decided that they wanted to scratch their traveling itch. Keely’s husband, Trent, was working from home at the time. There was just one problem with their traveling plans: Keely would need to start working right away to pay off all of her loans.
Luckily, physical therapy is the type of job that can be done anywhere. Keely and Trent quickly agreed that they could achieve both goals. That’s when the couple decided to buy their own RV. With a little bit of renovation, the couple would have access to the perfect traveling vehicle in no time at all. Once the project was done, they had their very own tiny home to call their own.
Their RV won them a lot of admirers and their following on Instagram quadrupled as a result. “….in the spring of 2019, we made a big life decision. we decided that after i graduated from physical therapy school, we would ditch the typical lifestyle & travel around the country in a fifth wheel camper that we renovated. the only problem? neither of us had any experience with campers, much less gutting & flipping one,” said Keely in an Instagram post.
“……regardless, we bought the ugliest camper we could find, & were weekend warriors for about 6 months until we turned this ugly duckling into a beautiful swan. now we live in our fifth wheel full time, & living in a 200 sq ft space with each other is the easiest & most fun thing we’ve ever done!” Kelly said with pride.
The RV was purchased for just $20,000. Six months (and an additional $5,000) later and they now have the perfect tiny home. They did the renovations in their free time. “We just decided, ‘Hey, that’ll be a fun, different thing to do,’” Keely says. “And so we just kind of jumped into it and figured it out along the way.” Their dog Murphy is also residing with them in the small space.
