They Left Their New York Jobs For Van Life

Chad and Paul were living in New York working typical corporate jobs, but wanted more out of life. So they began transitioning their work to be remote-friendly, and then decided they ought to do something with their new-found freedom.

While one of them really wanted to live on a sailboat, they settled on vanlife and purchased the amazing Winnebago Travato RV, which they have dubbed the “Vandelorian.” It has everything including a bathroom, but it’s most amazing feature is the lithium battery system that keeps them so well-powered off-grid they never even think about conserving it!

You can follow their adventures on Instagram here, and check out the in-depth tour with Tiny Home Tours below.

    Pretty nice! I like having plenty of sleeping/sitting room, and the kitchen is great! Nice job : )

    Funny, every time I hear or read the name Winnebago, I think of Christmas Lampoons vacation 😉

    Perfect. Totally incognito yet everything you could possibly need. And I love how they found a way to each have their own space even in such a small space. I’m not trying to be rude but I must comment on how totally different they are. One seems like a more conservative and the other seems like a rustic personality. But they have obviously made it work really well. I wish them both happy and safe travels. And if I do ever see them I will indeed “knock” for a better look at the van😊👍
