Why a van?

It really doesn't have to be a van. :-D Vans are a common choice for modern nomads for several reasons:

  • vans are the roomiest of common vehicles
  • vans are nondescript which can help blend in when stealth camping
  • vans are easy to find and buy

The #vanlife and #vandwelling hashtags are popular for a reason!

Cargo vans have additional benefits:

  • they are usually white, which helps keep heat down in the desert regions where snowbirds are often found.
  • they are bare (“a blank slate”) inside; nothing to remove before starting the build

There are plenty of other choices too! RVs, buses, cars, truck campers, etc.
