Have you ever thought of converting your own van for travel? Imagine the freedom; the luxury of going where you want, exactly when you want – safety contained in your own tiny home.
Today more and more people are being attracted by this kind of travel and we can understand why. It can be an inexpensive way to see the country, or indeed the world. Many people who travel in vans spend part of their vacation in their own travelling home then stay for a few evenings in a hotel or Airbnb accommodation. This is a great way to have the best of both worlds.
Some travellers choose to have long vacations, sometimes for many months and renting their own home while they are away helps to finance their journeys. Increasingly, people are living full-time in small van conversions – often young single people or couples. Further down the page you’ll find a link to learn all about Zach who, in 2015, did his own stylish conversion and has lived in his vehicle ever since.
His website takes you step-by-step through the process of van converting, starting with the very basics. He also speaks candidly about how people travelling in vans without facilities manage when it comes to the availability of showers and, well, other bathroom functions 🙂
Why is a small van better than buying an RV or trailer? Well, we’re all different but people who use the smaller vans describe the many pros such as cheaper gas mileage, greater flexibility of travel, ease of parking and more. Another advantage of a small van is that it can be used as your day-to-day vehicle when you are at home.
Zack is the first to admit that ‘van life’ isn’t for everyone but follow the link below to learn more.
