Van Life Honest Review

6 Months In

I wanted to make this post because I’ve been doing van life for 6 months. Our adventure, which started in California, has taken us across Florida and all the way up to Oregon. If you would’ve told me 5 years ago that I would be living in a van, I wouldn’t have believed you. I would’ve thought that I failed in life. Turns out, living in a van is actually quite amazing.

I want to give you my honest opinion and perspective. I want to talk about both the great parts of van life and the not-so-great parts that make me look forward to living in a regular home.

The Adjusting Period

The beginning of van life was an adjusting period. To live in such a small space — maybe 25 to 50 square feet — is a big change to get used to. My wife and I adopted the phrase “spatial awareness” because of how small our space is. We found strategic positions in the van that would allow us to move effectively and efficiently without bothering each other. It was things that made this adjusting period not difficult, but different. Finding a sense of normalcy took some time.
