Regarding single parent travelling with children, not quite the same, but I swear I recall a thread by someone in Europe who had an electric campervan, and would take month long trips alone with her children while her husband worked. I can't find it now, someone with better memory or searching confirm I'm not crazy?

I live for months at a time -8 months this year- in a small camper. Been traveling like this 14 years. Before that we lived in National Forest during the summer and Baja in the winter. Did that 6 years. Before that we did winter's in Baja and summers in a house.
I can't remember the last RV park I stayed at. None this year or last. Maybe 2 nights in 2015...
It can be done. You get use to dry camping. It is much more convenient for me, since I am moving around every day, and only a few days in each city. Checking in and out of parks is a pain.
So Walmarts, and street parking are what I do. I like it, but don't have any pets or kids.
Drove to Scranton, PA this evening, spending the day tomorrow here. Connecticut tomorrow night.

You should read the ThinkSaveRetire blog.

That is exactly what they have done. They are nomads in an Airstream.
