Guide to Van Life - Landing Page BannerWho Is This Guide For?

This guide is for anyone interested in living or travelling in a van.

We’ve created the guide to van life that we would have wanted when we started road tripping in our van a few years ago.

Living and travelling in a van is an incredible opportunity to explore new places, save money, live simply, and travel comfortably. Life on wheels provides a special kind of freedom and a connection to nature that we can’t always get when we live in a house or an apartment.

But van life isn’t always as easy or as cheap as it might seem at first glance. It often means that you have to live with less stuff, find new places to park every night, cope with extreme temperatures, and find creative ways to stay clean and go to the bathroom.

None of these challenges are insurmountable or impossible to deal with, you just have to be flexible and find solutions to them — and that’s where this guide swoops in to save the day.

What’s Inside the Guide?

Our guide is packed with useful tips, resources, links, advice, and inspiration.

We’ve compiled all of the lessons we’ve learned from the time we’ve spent living in our van and from meeting other van lifers, into one helpful guide.

In it, we answer the most commonly asked questions about living and travelling in a van including: how to buy a van, where to park overnight, how to stay clean, where to get free WiFi, how to stay safe, and much more.

Available in 3 Formats!

Read the eBook, watch the videos, or both — we’ve got you covered!

You can choose to get The Exploring Alternatives Guide to Van Life in a 160-page PDF eBook, a 4-hour Video Course, or both with the eBook + Video Course Package.

The eBook and the Video Course have almost identical information and resources in them so you don’t have to worry that you’ll be missing any key information if you choose one format over the other. The only difference between the two is that in the eBook, we’ve included extra tips and inspiration from eight van life veterans that we interviewed for the guide.
