Caitlin isn’t the first person to say that van life has helped their mental health, and she won’t be the last! After a divorce, she left her vast, beautiful home and moved into a custom-built van conversion that met all her needs. She feels so much freedom in downsizing and minimizing her belongings.

But just because she’s gone tiny doesn’t mean she’s left behind comfort! Her van has a wet bathroom with an Airhead toilet, beautiful countertops, and a dishwasher, which she loves because it uses little water. Enjoy the tour of this stunning van below.
