Jed and Sandy’s Full-Time Van Life

This is the story of Jed and Sandy and their full-time van life.

The couple initially sold their home, quit their jobs, and downsized into a 30-ft. travel trailer. Years later, they decided they wanted to downsize once again into a van so that they can get to more remote places during their travels, allowing them to see and experience even more. Today, they are still full-time nomads. Learn more and check out their van-based tiny home below!
