Couple’s Married Life In A Van Conversion

Liz and Ron took a leap of faith when they decided to pursue van-life. Ron knew it was for him once he learned about it, but neither of them knew how living in a tiny space would affect their marriage.

Even with the pandemic, they’ve learned through experience that tiny living has made their relationship stronger than ever. They even currently work at the same place, so they spend all of their time together. They loved the process of downsizing and discuss how free they feel without the burden of “stuff”.

They make money on the road by stopping places for long periods of time and getting jobs.

They explore the area, make friends and really get to know the place they’re parked, which is a beautiful and smart way to travel when you don’t have a remote job.

You can make anything work if you put your mind to it. Van-lifers have proved that to us time and time again.

    This is very nice and laid out cleverly. Seems they have a very stable marriage going tiny. I wish you both a very happy life and enjoy life. Seems roomy in there.

    Did I miss something, how do they shower? Well it’s a cute little home. Good luck to them.

      Many van dwellers that do their own conversions opt for other ways to have those needs met… Like using showers at gyms, use portable shower systems they can set up as needed, etc.

      Mind, space is very limited in a van as they are smaller than most tiny houses, they can only carry so much water, etc. But they are popular for ease of mobility, ability to get to remote locations that heavier vehicles may not be able to reach, small footprint, and supports a lifestyle of travel, freedom, and exploration that is hard to have otherwise…
