Her Simple & Practical Van Life with Pets

Meg was going through a divorce with her partner of 15 years just as 2020 pushed her Boston-based job remote. With nothing tying her to Massachusetts anymore, she decided to move home to Colorado and find a van to convert. Her goal wasn’t a fancy conversion, but something practical that met her needs and the needs of her pets.

She had no previous building experience, but she still managed to construct her own cabinets (complete with drawers — tricky!) and design a van with a full kitchen (oven included). Her fixed bed is just large enough for her to sleep in diagonally, and she has a hidden litter box for her cat.

    I’m impressed! For one with no experience — wow! Since she’s been at it for some time, she is an inspiration to those starting out! (Being a dog and cat lover, love how she lives with them comfortably in her rig):)! Lots of very well thought out features and nice looking as well!!

    How interesting that she packs along dog and cat food AND cat litter. Right there that says how great the tiny life is.
