Tori Spelling appears to have swapped motel living for mobile living in the wake of her split from husband Dean McDermott – and is now staying in an RV in California with her children.
The 50-year-old, who was pictured staying at a in a seedy $100-a-night motel in Los Angeles with her five kids earlier this month, has now been spotted at a campground in Ventura County with her brood – where they all appear to be spending time in a Sunseeker E450 RV.
In images obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star – who spent her childhood living in a $165million mansion owned by her TV mogul father Aaron Spelling – is seen behind the wheel of the cumbersome vehicle, driving up to a campground, where she and her kids are currently residing.
The group unloaded several items from the RV, including camping chairs, a cooler, a stove, a pop-up table – and even a large rug to cover the dusty ground.

It’s a stark contrast from the massive 56,500-square-foot French chateau-style mansion she grew up in with her TV mogul father Aaron Spelling and her mother Candy, in the exclusive Holmby Park neighborhood.
In what could be seen as a pointed message to her former husband, Tori donned a bold green sweater with the word ‘compassion’ written across the front, while the back bore the phrase: ‘Don’t leave home without it.’
However Tori appeared perfectly at ease with her new surroundings – at one point kicking back to relax in one of the camping chairs, while attempting to maintain a touch of Hollywood glamour by sporting a pair of large white sunglasses as she scrolled on her phone.
But any attempt she made to turn her camping trip into a ‘glamping’ trip was quickly undone when the former on-screen star had to do some chores – drying out some clothing outside the RV before preparing to cook dinner.
She also had to venture out to stock up on supplies for the family’s stay, hopping back behind the wheel of the RV in order to head to a local Walmart, where she and her daughter Stella were seen wheeling a grocery cart filled with plastic shopping bags.
The family was also spotted parked along the beach over the weekend, and the brood enjoyed a snack while watching the sunset over the Pacific ocean.
Other photos showed Tori walking with her kids Liam, 16, Stella, 15, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, six, along the coastal path.
The actress was accompanied on the grocery store trip by her teenage daughter Stella, who wore a sports bra and black pants as she strolled out of the store alongside her mom, who was pushing a cart filled with supplies
Mom-of-five Tori had a simple brown handbag slung over her shoulder as she and her daughter made their way to the store – and she also added a pair of Nike sneakers
Tori added a bright green sweater to her look to shield herself from the evening chill – and later added a pair of matching green sweatpants
At one point, Tori was seen scolding her children – with an onlooker revealing that she was chastising the kids for getting too close to the nearby cliffside
She was armed with plenty of snacks – including a large multipack box of Doritos and Cheetos
At one point, Tori was seen taking her sunglasses off to talk to a California Parks Deputy, although it appears the chat wasn’t about anything serious given that the actress walked away with a smile on her face.
However, an onlooker revealed to DailyMail.com that she was also seen scolding some of her children during their stay for inching too close to the cliffside – with images showing her gesticulating at her kids while sporting a baggy brown T-shirt and cut-off denim shorts.
Tori was also seen making her way around the family’s temporary home with a large multipack box of Doritos and Cheetos in her hand, perhaps attempting to clean-up the mess that had built up outside the RV.
The Sunseeker E450 RV features a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room.
Typically, Sunseeker’s contain a living room dinette which can be converted to provide additional sleeping capacity.
The sofas are also capable to be turned into a bed, which will no doubt be handy for Tori’s brood.
In the larger models, the motor homes also have a kids’ sofa sleeper which flips down into a bunkbed.
Their new temporary home comes after Tori and her children were photographed leaving a $100-a-night motel in Los Angeles last month, which she chalked up to a ‘mold issue’ at her family marital home.
The Hollywood star had been vocal about the mold prior to her move into the motel and revealed to her Instagram followers that the family had been continually sick because of it.

An insider said at the time: ‘Tori and Dean are doing really good and her staying at a hotel with their kids has nothing to do with a separation.’
On June 16, Tori’s estranged husband Dean revealed in a since deleted Instagram post that he was parting ways with Tori after 18 years.
‘It’s with great sadness and a very very heavy heart that after 18 years together and 5 amazing children, that @torispelling and I have decided to go our separate ways, and start a new journey of our own,’ the post read.
‘We will continue to work together as loving parents and guide and love our children through this difficult time. We ask that you all respect our privacy as we take this time to surround our family with love and work our way through this.
‘Thank you all for your support and kindness.’
Several days later, the troubled noTORIous star was photographed unloading suitcases and other belongings at a friend’s house. In the photos, she clearly looked distressed with all five kids in tow.
Dean was then seen moving his belongings into storage, while Tori was photographed wearing a ‘Boys Lie’ T-shirt.
According to a close mutual friend of the couple, Dean, 56, feels as though he has done everything in his power to make his wife happy, but believes that his efforts have not been reciprocated in any way.
‘Dean has changed and worked very hard to be the husband she needed him to be but she is still demanding and entitled. Nothing he does or has done will ever be good enough for her,’ the insider told DailyMail.com at the time.
Tori and Dean, who tied the knot in 2006, have never had the easiest marriage, with every aspect of the roller coaster romance played out in a very bitter and public way, something that the source says has taken a serious ‘toll’ on the actor.

‘For a very long time Tori used their marital problems to stay relevant,’ the source said.
‘Everyone knew about their issues, and she didn’t play it down, she played it – even going so far to go outside where she knew paparazzi were waiting holding papers that were a clear indication of a divorce. This really took a toll on Dean.’

Dean has not been seen publicly since he packed his belongings after their split.
Meanwhile, Tori’s close friends are said to be ‘worried sick’ about the actress who has gone ‘AWOL’ amid her split from Dean.
The insiders told DailyMail.com just two weeks ago that she has been ignoring calls and texts from her pals, and even missing out on events to promote her new home decor line.
‘Tori has not been returning calls and has kind of gone AWOL, which has her close friends worried sick,’ the friend said.
The source further revealed that Tori’s estranged husband Dean has serious concerns about his wife staying in a motel with their children – although it remains to be seen how he will feel about the RV set-up.
‘Dean is also taking up some issue with the kids being with Tori at these motels,’ the source said. ‘He thinks that the kids should be at home and not motel hopping with Tori. he just believes that this is not what is best for them at this time.’

Tori grew up in a life of luxury, with her TV mogul father Aaron Spelling constructing a sprawling mansion in 1988.
Her stunning childhood home had 123 rooms including 27 bathrooms and 14 bedrooms on five acres of land and was listed for sale in February 2022 for $165million.
However the list price has been dropped down in recent months to $155million.
Just last month, Tori accused a realtor of ‘mocking’ her family’s housing ‘crisis’ as she navigates living in temporary accommodation.
In a text exchange, uploaded to her Instagram Story, a realtor messaged her and said: ‘The latest bizarre inquiry.’
‘I’m sorry? I’m assuming that wasn’t meant for me,’ the actress replied.
He, then, responded: ‘It is more for Karen. Tori Spelling has been asking for a 1 month rental. If you follow her situation on TMZ it is all amusing.’
Tori fired back: ‘This is Tori Spelling. Wow! Human empathy and kindness prevails. Kids in crisis is amusing.’
The best-selling author proceeded to leak the messages on her Instagram Story, with the caption: ‘And, this human is a father! I guess I hold out too much hop that people lead by kindness.’
