I have spent the past few months researching options and reading reviews from established Van Life bloggers and it has only made designing my van more difficult. My research has uncovered the hardcore reality of Van Life.
I can remember when I could fit all of my belongings into the back of my car. Of course, I was seventeen at the time. Things have really changed since then. Now I have decades of keepsakes, photo albums, and cumulative collections of things I enjoy. Add in business endeavors, two marriages, two grown children, and a few dogs; and you have a lot of items in your living space. Downsizing to a tiny home was challenging enough, but can I downsize more to enjoy life in a van?
Out tiny home experience was terrific, so much so that we weren’t very motivated to move. We started our adventure wondering if we could sustain this “bohemian” lifestyle and ended it wishing we could say longer.
