In this mid week episode we take a break from driving across Europe in our self converted campervan to show you some of our favourite van life accessories! We’ve had a lot of questions about some of the items you have seen us using (mostly the shower, pet gps trackers and power) so hopefully this video will help to answer them and show you how we shower in a van!

We have also included some of our personal picks as well, hopefully they may make your van life easier, especially when it comes to travelling with pets!

Let us know in the comments section some of your campervan/motorhome must haves and essentials, what do you take with you for a road trip?

Hopefully you are enjoying this European travel series as much as we are and we are managing to show you just some of the stunning landscapes that France has to offer in this French travel vlog.
As usual, we have tried to include a bit of everything, some cinematic scenery mixed with our usual female van life foolery, we always love hearing what you lot think in the comments so do let us know, and as always, thank you for watching!

Follow us on our journey as we attempt to create a proper youtube travel series as we, two female travelers and vanlifers, attempt to travel across Europe in our rolling tiny home.
Hit the subscribe button to see where our DIY campervan takes us next and how this van life couple copes living in a van!

  2. Our narrowboat adventure on April 29, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Lol, nothing better than a pro when it comes to thick wood and clean cracks! 🀣

  3. nisancashi2241 on April 29, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    the hoover is handy for dog hair….. should it be called hairy fanny

  4. Melanie McKay on April 29, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Yes female urinals are used in hospital!✌️❀️

  5. karl rampton on April 29, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    As we say here in Ireland , your both great craic.
    A great informative video from two dedicated viewers

  6. John 01GM40 on April 29, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Β£1,300 for 1000 jackery and the solar panels. !!!!
    I’d rather carry a couple of extra 12v leisure batteries and an inverter?

  7. Annie on April 29, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    It’s good to see you two & I don’t think there’s a product for Lou’s dirty mind when it comes to you twisting your words 😁 Take care and safe travels πŸ€—

  8. Electrowave on April 29, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Interesting stuff, thanks πŸ™‚ I like the food bags, are they easy to clean?

  9. Pugwash on April 29, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    I’m sure I just heard someone say crack ho’s?

  10. Blossom Cook on April 29, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    What a tons of great tips and special the water bowl for AJ and Summer as we have animals we take camping and water gets everywhere. But thanks for all the awesome tips!!

  11. Ant Hart on April 29, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Cat said for her those nesting pots and pans are brilliant 🀩 for me, it’s the most simple one of all..the box of hose fittings! That’s a cracking idea!! I’m proper torn by those jackerys, think for a small van or weekend trips they could totally replace the need for a big battery and split charger but a larger van or full time it’s just backup or like you use yours to only power things that don’t work off 12v.
    If they did a 200amp for Β£1000 I’d be all over it!ha πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

  12. John boy on April 29, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Ive built a few vans , and i must say you have done an amazing job, your my favourite van life channel

  14. Jood M on April 29, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    Loved the way AJ was quietly ‘supervising’ you both in this vid! πŸ˜‚ You’re both fab..and the 4-legged family members! Take good care of each other xx

  15. dirtydog2312 on April 29, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    I was looking at tractive trackers the other day, mainly because my dog is a grade a a*sehole and disappears when he’s off lead!

  16. Rebel with a Cause on April 29, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    My list is a little different, Rizzla, music & diesel for the heating & van, Happy as a little pink piggy in a big pile of poo πŸ‘βœŒ

  17. Urban Vanlife on April 29, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    and now emma is off to buy pans .

  18. Den Weston on April 29, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Was giggling like a girlie with your explanation of the pee pot and then "nobody wants a dirty crack"!!!! Thanks for cheering me up girls great vlog πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Žxx

  19. Crystal Verge on April 29, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Never boring, you two. And your list is really different from most. Added a couple for my van. Thx.

  20. Paris Knight on April 29, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    What is the make and model of your projector ladies? Winter has hit UK and need some cosy nights in!!!

  21. birminghambear0121 on April 29, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Hi both, thanks (in part at least) to you two I am exploring the idea of a micro camper for myself… No rush to reply but am I right in thinking that I could have the 1000w Jackery in the car/ van INSTEAD of fitting the vehicle out with electrics??? I’m just thinking that if the micro camper thing happens for me I will probably only be using it for short trips and weekends and therefore I wouldn’t want to spend too much cash. If I take to it then I would probably want something larger for later so no point doing too much at first is my thinking! What do you think? πŸ™‚

  22. Colin Moss on April 29, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    I was admiring your wheels, as I’ve got a Boxer I’d be interested in what size they are and what load rating the tyres are.
    Cheers Colin

  23. trish k on April 29, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Fantastic tips thankyou. Seriously thinking of going on the road with the kids(home schooled) Husband is terminal and then just getting away from everything.The kids are up for it!

  24. VeeStar on April 29, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Honestly, since building my camper, I have been following you both and your fanny!! And you don’t know how much you have entertained me. You both kept me sane through a tough time at Christmas (losing my 15yr old best mate Beanie, my staffie) watching your videos has kept me going. I just love your humour! Clean cracks!!! Just kills me…lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  25. Donna on April 29, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Bag organizer is great. My sister can use this for all her many cords she can never find. Thank you

  26. Gordon Baxter on April 29, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Great channel – love seeing the places you visit as well as the challenges you overcome together. Thanks for the tip on the security camera too!

  27. Jarad Blake on April 29, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Great vid, thank youπŸ‘

  28. Van wheels on tour on April 29, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    We use the shower for our dog outside. And then we put Lilly in a dog bathrobe.

  29. Mayanna Burmeister on April 29, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Another great vlog .

  30. SARA TOWNSEND on April 29, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    And the 2021 award for best hoover sales person goes to Emily…

  31. Its a Dogs Life on April 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Damn! I watched this and now I’m getting "urinals" coming up in amazon suggestions!!! Bloody algorithms haha
    Pan set is an excellent choice btw. πŸ™‚

  32. K Tucker on April 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Great tips! Thank you for the discount code too!

  33. Yvonne Merchant on April 29, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Brilliant video yet again, you are both so funny and I am now addicted to pan au chocolate πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but a quick question please can you tell me where you got AJ’s harness as our 17 year old dog has started taking fits and we need something to help her back up on her feet, meds helping a little but she had a bad one last night 😒😒😒 xxx

  34. sarah freeman on April 29, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Great video, love the peewee bottle and the crack vac, Never seen the Swan or Duck neck thing but it looks a great thing, also might look into the pet trackers because having two Labradors its quit worrying when they off the leads river swimming or forest sniffing xx

  35. Kelly Dodds on April 29, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    I see Em is used to the name Fanny now she didn’t blink πŸ˜…

  36. Gary Jones on April 29, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Love the videos and would love a jackery

  37. Geri Ward Music - Acoustic Covers & More on April 29, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    Great tip and fab video ladies!

  38. ArcticNick on April 29, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    A USB shower? WTF!? That’s funny.

  39. Kay - Water and Wander on April 29, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    So useful, thanks Em and Lou. Found the water tip really helpful as we have an underslung tank and have been caught out in the past, so will definitely be using this idea going forward 😊

  40. mike sampson on April 29, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    The 1000 Jackery is brilliant, we actually hooked up our van to it once, with the solar panel hooked up too πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ before we got a panel on the roof,
    Then just fully recharged it in the sun the next day β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ₯°
    Love your vlogs, you all make me smile 😊😊

  41. Catherine Ross on April 29, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Excellent accessory ideas and a number that I hadn’t seen before. I’m particularly interested in getting a Jackery so it was great to see it set up. GPS for the dog (and me) will be on my list of purchases too.

  42. Pamela Smith on April 29, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I am so in love with AJ his face πŸ’“πŸ’“.you girls are ok to πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
