How others see vandwelling

We 'dwellers know this can be a rewarding and frugal lifestyle, but not everyone will share our enthusiasm. Be prepared for judgement, ignorant comments, and “down by the river” jokes.

reactions of friends and family

If your friends and family are hippies, experienced travelers, or adventurous types they may be supportive. Other folks either won't understand or may even be hostile. It is common for family to try to dissuade potential vandwellers from the lifestyle for one or more reasons:

  • they are worried it's dangerous
  • they are worried it's a waste of your life
  • when their friends ask “What is Johnny doing with his life” they don't want to answer “he's living in a van”.
