Cost of Living In a Motorhome Full Time in the UK – Monthly Budget!
How much does van life cost? How much does it cost to live in a motorhome full time in the UK?
These are my second most asked questions (emptying the toilet is the 1st!) and still to this day the video I did answering this three years ago is still my most popular video by far.
But! As that was over three years ago, i thought it was about time I updated it and brought you all up to speed on how much van life costs in 2022 and that’s exactly what I do. I talk about how much the following costs me,
Diesel & LPG
Food & Drink
Mot & Service
Insurance & Tax
Phone & Internet
Entertainment (streaming services)
Water & waste
So? What do you think to my monthly costs? Am I over spending by miles or are they similar to your self? How much does van live cost you per month to live, drop it in the comments below along with any money saving tips you may have, I’d love to hear them.

Omg i live better for less than half your amount. My wifi alone is only £21. You need help on budgeting buddy.
Daz what a laugh gym membership you gym like me the cost of fuel is massive i have a 3ltr merc motorhome i only use for leisure and have to pay all the same costs serv mot tax my insurance is only 200 but im older than you so possibly brings the price down but the fuel is a killer. I left the motorhome club this year because they changed the booking where you have to pay a deposit to book and that does not work for me as my work commitment can change very quickly now i use pitchup or one of those i never urban camp we went away far less last year because of the costs even the sites are starting to rise so much it might come to a point where i say it’s just not worth it they are even thinking of meter electric now i am in the process of fitting a diesel heater 8kw so should save on gas wife is always cold even in summer ha but we also really love the open rd i carry my motorbike on the back and of we go its great can park anywhere even the most busy places keep up the good vlogs been watching you for years and really enjoy your honesty happy new year young fella ps i also love pepsi max cherry but i think the raspberry is awesome give it a go.
Just found you, great guy to watch, love your sense of humour, we have a camper and live near Alicante in Spain, have lived here 20 years, owned camper since 2011.
I want to do this but I need a boyfriend that would do it with me 😂😂😂😂😂😂
Great video. What do you actually say when going for water at the forecourt?
Insurance + European breakdown cover and recovery £500
Service roughly £150 DIY
Refillable LPG £30 refill maybe 5-6 times per year.
Much cheaper than house living
MO-A home , you spend 3 times too much on food .
Cost of a unlimited calls and internet on "smarty mobile" is only £20 per month it runs 3G network
You can heat up your motor home dirt cheap , methanol thermal heater and is safe , https://youtu.be/JGVZVCU8FGE
Have you tried Pure-Gym, they open 24 hours and much cheaper
Wow you spend a lot on diesel. Do you drive around quite a bit? Great video!
My bills now are 1700 a month so for me I would definitely save a lot of money
Great channel bro . 👍🤟👌🤙
This geezer ever bought a drink for his followers cos 80 quid won’t cut it even one night..
That’s the best budget video I’ve seen.
Wouldn’t it be cheaper to spend a little more on a phone contract with unlimited data? You can then turn your phone into a hotspot and run all your Internet through your phone?
I recently ditched my land broadband and replaced it with my phone. Its a new phone so its 5g. 5g is plenty of speed for 3 of us online all the time and it’s less than £40 a month.
I want to do this and travel the UK teaching .would you recommend it with dogs
Great video. Very informative
Everyday things have doubled since you made this video.
Darren you need to budget your paying way too much!
Friends who let you empty your waste at their place are real friends forever hold onto them.Blessings to you your family and friends and associates 😉
I BEEN LIVING IN A OLD RV FOR YEARS, LOVE THE LIFE STYLE, I LOST EVERYTHING AND I DO MEAN EVERYTHING A FEW YEARS AGO AND I WAS BROKEN IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS…..
I BOUGHT THIS 35YR OLD RV, IT ONLY HAD 45000 MILES ON IT AND WAS IN GREAT SHAPE, IM 65YRS OLD AND LIKE I SAID IM A BROKEN MAN, I LIVE ON SS AND I GET ABOUT $1000 A MONTH, IT COST ME AROUND 4 TO 5 HUNDRED A MONTH TO LIVE, I PUT MONEY A SIDE FOR REPAIRS AND IM TRYING TO SAVE ENOUGH TO GET A DIFFERENT RIG MAYBE SOMETHING A LITTLE BETTER ON GAS….
YES I LOVE LIVING IN THE RV AND WILL NEVER GO BACK TO A HOUSE OR APT, I DO HAVE 6 KIDS THEIR ALL GROWN UP AND HAVE KIDS OF THEIR OWN…….
I CHOOSE TO LIVE IN MY RV TO STAY INDEPENDENT AND NOT TO BOTHER OR INTERFERE WITH MY KIDS LIVES…..
I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND THIS LIFE TO ANYONE, I LOVE THE LIFE STYLE AND ITS A CHEAPER WAY OF LIVING, I JUST CANT JUSTIFY $3000 A MONTH FOR RENT AND UTILITIES……

You’re the most normal, friendly, likeable, down-to-earth, modest #VanLife YouTuber I’ve ever seen. Love it. More strength to you matey.
I always wonder how you get mail when you live in a camper van and move around a lot? Also what about prescription meds, how does that work?
If that’s the case I’m booking a room in that motor home ……
Get ya self a soda stream if you drink lots of Pepsi. Be cheaper.

Doesn`t matter what you do in this dirty, damp, miserable little country, everyone is out to scam you.
So I got a question. Your using solar through out the summer times what are you using through winter? And lesser days of sun?
I did 2 years full time off grid alone. I didn’t have any bad experiences but I’m glad I’m back inside.
