Information for new vandwellers

This wiki collects and organizes information to help full-timers get the best out of the lifestyle. As such, it chiefly concerns vandwelling as a voluntary lifestyle (“houseless-ness”).

This is not intended to be an authoritative guide to everything van-life. Rather, it is a collection of links to other resources and guides put together by outside sources. It is by no means complete. Want to help make it so? See Edit and contribute.

If you are facing involuntary vandwelling (homelessness) start with this emergency quick start.
