Erica had spent three weeks traveling a large swath of the country in her car, thinking she could never sell her house and do full-time vanlife. But when she was about to go back to another year of teaching, she realized how unhappy she was with her current situation!

So she went ahead and sold her house, bought her van and converted it into a great home for her and her two big pups. She did all the work herself, so she’s prepared to fix just about anything that goes wrong while she is traveling.

The two things that were holding Michelle back from van life were her stuff and other people’s negative opinions. Once she got rid of those, she was able to jump into her van joyfully and after two years on the road her only regret is that she didn’t do it sooner!

She travels with her two dogs and made them a gate from paint sticks (love it)! She has a nice, deep sink, outdoor shower, indoor composting toilet, closet under her bench seat and a TV so she can play video games on rainy days. I love it and hope you will too!

“I didn’t move into the van to be in a VAN. I moved into the van to be in the WORLD in more intimate and profound ways,” Rachel said.

After some other plans fell through and the pandemic hit, the stars aligned for Rachel to start #vanlife. She only owns what she could fit in the van, and she used the time during the end of her lease to really evaluate what she used daily and what she could part with.

Like many vanlifers, she works remotely and has a simple pop-up desk system to complement her pop up shower system! Watch the video from Tiny Home Tours to see more.
