I live in a $200 Walmart tent with my husband – people assume we are homeless, but we took this step to be “free.”

A COUPLE who chose to live in a tent full-time have spoken about their lives and explained why they decided to make such a big change.

The TikToker and her husband from Iowa were negatively criticized by some for traveling the United States while living under the screen.

As an influencer puple.lily.23 I posted it first Video As for the tent she and her spouse live in, many assumed it was a permanent situation.

“We decided to travel across the United States and live in a tent,” she told one commenter.

“I have a house. I just live in my tent and see new things every day.”

The travel agent and her husband both work remotely, which makes it easy for them to live outdoors without disrupting their lives or giving up their home.

According to their TikTok videos, the couple thought it would be a great idea to use a tent instead of an RV for their extended road trip.

“We wanted to experience life in a tent first, so far it’s been great. I don’t know if I would change it.”

The couple bought this Ozark Trail Hazel Creek Tent for $200 and I really liked it.

Their temporary home was equipped with two closets, corner organizers, mesh pockets, and even room dividers for privacy.

When traveling, they often found a campsite where they could stay for a week or two before moving to a new area.

While the weather might be a concern for most long-term campers, the TikToker was doing just fine on her travels.

“So far so good. We’ve weathered some pretty strong winds and it’s still in good condition. My husband also helped push it up while the wind was blowing,” she said.

The couple has traveled across several states documenting the ups and downs of life in a tent, and there was no sign of them stopping their journey.
