Young Man Living in his 87 VW Westfalia Van

This is a young man who is living in his 87 VW Westfailia Van.

From the outside, you’ll notice a dark grey exterior and pop-up roof space.

When you go inside, you’ll find a couch that folds into a bed, a small desk and kitchenette, and a table that pops up between the two front seats.

    My husband and I have been working and living out of our van for years! We are expediters. We get paid to travel the USA

      That’s awesome! You should share your experience. I’d love to know more about what you’ve found works for you, the ups and downs, etc.
      I am really interested in stealth living, living in a van, and traveling all over. I am currently planning on living in my car for a year so I can start to save up for a van, and my biggest concern is stealth and not getting in trouble with law enforcement.
      I’d love to hear more about your experiences.

    I’m impressed at the amount of storage in this wee little van. I don’t know if I could live in one – at least if I had a choice! – but this would be awesome for camping, or that across-the-USA drive I still want to do someday.

      What does an expediter do? BTW, I live in a 83.5 Westie, and the only thing in these photos that isn’t standard, might be a little table set up in the back by the little closet. Everything else is the way they came.
