From NYC to Van Life After the Pandemic 


Dottie had spent 13 years living in New York City and working as a burlesque dancer, showgirl, personal trainer, and bartender. The pandemic put her out of work and eventually she left the city and moved back home. Her mom and stepdad have actually been living the RV life for a while, so it runs in her blood!

She ended up buying and fixing up her awesome van that even has space for her sewing machine and burlesque costumes in the garage! She has a cassette toilet, a Dometic fridge, an altar, and an outdoor shower. Enjoy the tour below.

    I like the variety of colors you used. They pop and blend nicely. That was a good idea to use some counter depth by the kichen window and still access the window for ventilation. On your back windows, did they come with those shapes or did you design the wall to create the diamond shape?
