Wellington, Texas – (Oct. 11, 2018) — Given the rising cost of living and flat wages, it’s no surprise the number of non-retired, full-time RVers is skyrocketing. “RV Nomads”, a feature length cinematic film, is a powerful story of freedom and self-liberation from society’s current definition of the American Dream. The film blends a scripted narrative of the full time RV movement with unscripted storytelling, depicting the day-to-day perspective of full time digital RV nomads, premiering October 2018.
Armed with solar power, WiFi and a nomadic spirit, these full-time RVers combine adventure, travel and meaningful work, backed by a supportive community focused on sharing solutions for self sufficiency and tales of exploration. While it is estimated that nearly 1 million retirees call RVs home, “RV Nomads” represents a new breed of full time, digital nomads blending work and play as part of the RV lifestyle.
The film follows the lives of 15 full-time digital nomads, capturing the daily thrills, challenges and community that bonds this movement together. “This isn’t just a lifestyle, it’s a movement,” says RV Nomads filmmaker Eric Odom. “RV Nomads illustrates that freedom is attainable, no matter who you are.”
