Need some Van Life inspiration? A camper van with custom modifications is just what you need to do your next road trip in style. #VanLife
In Iceland (hi from Iceland, by the way!), we’ve been constantly passing small camper vans. They are one of the most popular ways to see the country and there are tons of companies offering rental options. Even though I’m really enjoying the hotels, comfortable beds, included breakfasts and hot showers, I’m still a little bit envious of the Van Life movement.
Pat and I have even been tossing around the idea of buying an old van to use for road trips when we’re back in California. There are some used vans for sale on Craigslist and it’s so tempting! We don’t want just any old van though. We’ll probably buy a van and gut it, tricking it out with custom modifications and cozy amenities.
While I know I’d never be able to live in a van full time, it would be fun to have one for camping trips and longer road trips. Just think about it – you can sleep in the van and there’s no need to reserve a camping site or buy a hotel room.
We’re not alone! Instagram and Pinterest are filled with tons of amazing photos and tutorials for how to turn a van into a home on wheels. According to Pinterest’s just released Travel Report, searches for Van Life are up 290%. Foster Huntington, widely credited with starting the #VanLife movement, even has a book coming out this fall.
Here are some people who are doing Van Life right…
