Life in her 1999 Ford Camper Van


Josie had been looking into vanlife and when she got some remote work finally took the plunge. I love seeing what people can do with a non-Sprinter van, and she makes her 1999 Econoline into quite the home!

I love Josie’s spirit because delving into van living clearly boosted her confidence — from using a power drill for the first time, to cutting her bed to size in a parking lot with an electric knife. Those little things are making her more resilient and bold. She also says the unpredictability of #vanlife has made her a more “flowy” person. If you’re fascinated with van builds, we think you’ll love her video tour below!

She had help from friends & other vanlifers to outfit her van.

    It’s always interesting to see what folks do that get to live this lifestyle. Have fun, it looks like you are well versed in the van life. I have met many great people on the road when I traveled to motorcycle races (I also had a full time engineering job) and we stayed at many campgrounds rather than do the motel thing. I loved to see the home made campers, there is a lot of ingenuity out there on how to design and build one. I finally built a truck camper myself and quickly found you are never done with it. Upgrades every year. Fun.
