I’ve never lived out of a van. When I finished my undergrad studies, I sold everything big that I owned so I could fit in my little car (with a roof storage unit). I never lived out of it either, but for a year and a half, I worked and visited friends all over the US.
I like to see how others make van life work. Here are three short videos of people living in vans with a few extra treats — wood stoves and a shower.
Of course I like all the Goal Zero | En Route setups too.
