From Homelessness to Contentment in Van Life

Vanessa struggled with homelessness for years and had fallen into depression when she came across van life on YouTube. It seemed like a way out for her — but she needed a van! With a bit of inheritance money and a miracle, she ended up with her current rig for $1,300 and successfully completed a budget renovation on her home on wheels.

She has a lovely rig with a unique layout! Her kitchen is actually at the back of the van, her bed/lounge/closet is in the middle, and her “bathroom” setup takes up the front. Keep scrolling for their great tour!

    What an amazing story, and you are an amazing woman! I love that shade of yellow and blue, and how you were able to get so much stuff so well organized in such a small home is a story in itself. You are obviously a clever and creative lady. Safe travels to you.
