What an inspirational couple! When neurological issues forced Tanya to retire early, she started looking at #vanlife. Her husband, Derec, is in a wheelchair and didn’t think it would be possible to adjust to life on the road or get a vehicle that met his needs.

With the help of the VA, the couple got a wheelchair lift, a special driver’s seat, and hand controls for their van. They tow a bathroom cargo trailer behind the vehicle so Derec has plenty of space, and they lowered the bed inside the van for easier transfers. Now the couple is working on a foundation and grants for other people in wheelchairs wanting to get outside the “four walls” and experience nature. What do you think of their setup?
