Interesting idea for a topic. It brings up a variety of images in my mind about the people who actually live as nomads, how they make a living, and the kind of dwellings would work on a day-to-day basis. Our whole social structure seems to be based on being in one place for a long time. Our jobs don't move around, changing places to live is a real pain, and we tend to collect bunches of stuff in the normal course of living. If someone is trying to live self-sufficiently, it usually means a garden, keeping animals, etc., which is kinda hard to do if you're always on the move. Still, when I look at all the "stuff" that surrounds me in my house, I sometimes wonder what the alternative would be like. Almost none of our family is here, and for the most part the only reasons we live where we do are the job and the house, which has been in a state of constant remodel for the 17 years we've lived here.

The advantage of nomadic housing if you want to live an agricultural life without owning land you can move with the season to where the work is at its peak. Your expenses are low therefore your income does not need to be high.
