Book - Trailersteading: Voluntary Simplicity in a Mobile Home

A few weeks ago I mentioned that Andrea and I had been interviewed for a book. I'm happy to announce that the book has now been released. The Kindle version of Trailersteading: Voluntary Simplicity in a Mobile Home is currently available on Amazon.

I am not going to do a review, as I believe it would be difficult for me to be unbiased, since Andrea and I are featured in the book. For that reason, I am planning to have a friend do a guest post, in which she reviews the book.

In the meantime, I can provide some information for those who wonder if they should pick up a copy. The book is written by Anna Hess, who is an author and blogger at The Walden Effect. In the book Anna presents a case for living in a mobile home as component of simple living. She interviewed several couples and individuals, such as Andrea and msyelf, and presents that information as case studies to highlight ways in which people from all over the country have taken advantage of the low cost of a mobile home. In addition to the case studies the book includes information on how one can minimize the downsides to living in a mobile home, and maximize the benefits.

Of course I think the material covered in the book is worthwhile, but that's because it describes the approach we've taken to housing, at least for the present. Is this book for you? I can't answer that, but the low cost makes it very easy for you to purchase a copy and find out for yourself.


  1. Thanks so much for plugging the book!
