He Mounted A Stand Up Desk To His Van’s Bumper

This is one way you can get work done during van life using an outdoor stand up desk mounted on your van’s custom bumper. Yes, this is the story of a stand up desk mounted on the front bumper of this man’s van conversion!

This bumper happens to be an Aluminess van conversion specialty bumper, the adventurous mountain bike couple also use it to hang their hammocks, by the way. Plus the van lifer, @outsidenomad, is also using a FlexFixx balance board to make his stand up work session even better. Check it out below! And please, let us know what you think in the comments. I had never thought of this before and just think it’s awesome! How about you?

He’s Working Outside Using a Stand Up Desk Mounted to the Bumper of his Van Conversion!

This is called the @flexfixx. It’s a balance board, and he’s using it in one of his favorite spots, with one of his favorite bears, a Hazy LA IPA from Golden Road Brewery.

Working outside isn’t always in, so you’ll sometimes find them in here. I really like the way they snuck the shower in this van, by the way.

Just because you have a stand up desk, doesn’t mean you always use it. Sitting down with a laptop with a view, what a wonderful way to get some things done. A cubicle has its purpose, but this seems to beat it at the moment.

Getting to mountain bike and trail through incredible sceneries, like this, has to be one of the greatest motivations for van life.

Here they are using their Aluminess bumper to tie the hammocks to these trees in the perfect spot. Ahh, the good parts of van life. 🙂

    I like this van. Very nice inside and their bikes look like they are enjoying life. Real nice. Where is the bear?

    I like it, there is a lot of storage, a decent sitting area and kitchen topped by a shower stall and toilet which I couldn’t be without. Well done.
