Recording studio

This singer took her recording studio and her family on the road

Would you live in a 240 square foot RV with two other people? Musician Asha Mae (@asha_mae_sings) does just that, and she says she’s never been happier! The musician and mom spends her days traveling the country with her husband, Kemar, and son, Kyle. In this episode of Dream Big, Live Small, Asha Mae shares what it’s like to live in an RV and explore the United States with her family.

Asha Mae begins her RV tour by pointing to the bedroom of her son Kyle, a small cubby that sits just below the roof of the vehicle. “Those black storage bins in the back are her dresser, Asha Mae says, pointing to a row of bins at the other end of the cubby. “Each container contains shorts or shirts.”

Moving on, Asha Mae points to the table that serves as the family’s primary workspace. “We use this area for work, home school, [music] recording and Zoom and Skype meetings,” says Asha Mae. “It’s so funny because when we were in a house, we had this huge space that we were doing all these different things in, and we weren’t using it.”

Next to the table is the family’s kitchen, which consists of a stove, microwave and small refrigerator. “You’d be surprised how much magic you can do here,” says Asha Mae, showing how she places a lid on the stove to convert it into counter space. “We bought this stove to also serve as extra counter space because as you can see there is absolutely no counter space here. So it’s our kitchen counter, and the table is also our kitchen counter.

Asha Mae notes that living in an RV forces the family to embrace minimalism when it comes to grocery shopping. “If you live that lifestyle, just get rid of your Costco membership. You don’t need it, because there’s no room,” she explains. “Now we really only buy what we need.”

Finally, Asha Mae walks around the master bedroom. The bed takes up almost all the space and there is very little space between the bed and the wall. “It’s difficult to change the sheets, very difficult. You have to climb up there,” Asha Mae said, pointing to the bed.

In general, living in an RV requires a good attitude, according to Asha Mae. While it was a rewarding experience for the family, Asha Mae notes that it’s definitely not for everyone. “You really have to be flexible,” she says. “Anyone who gets into this lifestyle will absolutely hate it if they’re not flexible. You have to have the temper for that.

But if you have the right attitude, Asha Mae says RV life can be truly amazing. “One of the wonderful things about this lifestyle is that you can pretty much change your garden whenever you want,” she explains. “It’s the American dream for us.”

And for anyone intrigued by life in VR, Asha Mae has a simple piece of advice. “Live the life of today. Don’t delay,” she said. “There is no better time than now.”
