I wanted to leave a few thoughts on living and traveling inside a van. From buying and building out a van, to finally traveling around. Here’s my quick guide for vanlife.
My experience started out like this:
I jumped right in to living in my van, when i decided to quit uni. I bought a van and built it out. The day i had finished the bed was the day i had to move out of my apartment aswell. I finished the build and headed to Austria, where i got a job to finance my stay. I stayed for half a year, living full time in my van. When summer came around, I left Austria to travel around Europe and going back to my home town Hamburg. I met various van life people along the way and the whole experience taught me a lot about what you really need for van life.
I would love to hear your story!
Feel free to leave questions down in the comments 🙂

    Great build. Did you use dedicated winter tyres or all season?

    Thumbs up. 😉 But in my opinion there was a few design flaws. Or it is just because I worked as an LKW driver.

    Hey man i hope you will read this but i have a question about the van. Im about to buy almost exactly the same car (only its not a fire truck) and i was wondering how many fuel it uses (if its diesel). And the second question does it make a lot of noise? Like if you would sit with two people in the front could you have a normal conversation with oneanother?

    Love your video’s btw man! Keep up the good stuf

    Try to feed the engine with GPL… It could be a solution to save money

    Did you use some kinda armaflex insulation? And was it warm in the winter with that after you heated it up, or did the heat flow away quickly?
