Living van life presents a number of challenges when dealing with the elements, but having a well equipped van make those elements surprisingly easy to tackle. Rainy day? It might be a bit boring, but our roof vent has a rain cover. Winter chill? That’s what our Webasto gasoline heater is for! But dealing with hot days in the van is something that without an AC unit presents a whole new set of difficulties without obvious solutions. So that’s why we came up with a bunch of tips – some obvious and some not so obvious – to help you deal with the summer temperatures as prime summer camping season comes around in the northern hemisphere.

We are a couple of full-time travel dreamers who decided to pack up our lives to explore the world – and then 2020 happened. After flying back home, we were not ready to give up our new lifestyle yet, so we bought a minivan, converted it into a DIY minivan camper, and drove across Canada in search of beautiful campsites and stunning mountains to climb. We are currently on a different sort of adventure, converting a Ford Transit cargo van into our new full-time home on wheels in hopes of exploring North America and conquering more mountains – and hopefully even the Arctic Ocean!
