    I just purchased a minivan. People think vanlife is sacrifice and I tell that the real sacrifice is paying rent.

    Great stuff

    It was a nice chat

    "People don’t want to work anymore"
    It’s not that people don’t want to work anymore; Recent studies have proven in order to own a home a person has to work 4 fulltime jobs. People are turning away from jobs because there aren’t enough to go around and the ones available don’t pay worth a damn.

    Chrome presents a somewhat close version lonely nights trying to find free wifi and crimefree overnight camping.
    Without annoying people who live in normal housing .

    The problem here in Australia you can drive thousands of miles. No towns all desert and that’s 70% of the country. You’ll find huge service stations along the way to buy fuel, and because it’s miles from anywhere the gas is $20 a gallon +

    Thank you man, eye opening video

    Its the dream and a way to have my pittbull no one will rent to me because of him and I’m not giving him up thanks for all the amazing vids

  12. Tango0214 on April 5, 2023 at 10:15 am

    Not sure if it has been mentioned, but foresty forest started his channel working and living in his van full-time. It’s definitely interesting to watch.

  13. Steve Smith on April 5, 2023 at 10:15 am

    Great video Chrome, been following you from the beginning, and have always enjoyed your content, your energy and realness is infectious, don’t ever stop being you, peace brother βœŒοΈπŸ€“

    I’ve always dreamed of making and renovating one of these vans but there’s no way I could live in one. I see people living their entire lives out of vans and honestly I cringe a little bit because I feel like people should know it’s not all glamor. I think these vans serve best as road trip vehicles or Hangout spots. Maybe a place to sleep when you don’t want to drive home.

  17. PeanutBrain on April 5, 2023 at 10:21 am

    I’m trying to trade my car for a Van right now lol.

    I’m working full time and stay in the van. It’s great!

  20. TVLER GEE on April 5, 2023 at 10:24 am

    I’m a van lifer that literally goes to work and school. The only thing I do in my van is sleep. Not only can I not afford an apartment but an apartment would only serve as a place for me to sleep for 4-5 hours a day. I do find myself dreaming about actually traveling in my van tho.

  21. betty brigance on April 5, 2023 at 10:25 am

    I remember your first night video…and now just look at you, your helping others…it’s been a journey…thanks, stay safe and keep going

  22. Nate Sargeant on April 5, 2023 at 10:28 am

    Cities are trash. Don’t live there.

  23. Stefan Oostra on April 5, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Wow thank you for this reality check! I watched a lot of vanlife YouTubers and you are absolutely richt: there are things they are not telling and/or showing us. Witch is ofcoures there choice. But what you are telling us is a part of that life style as wel. But the other things you are saying are also true. If you really want something, go for it. Do not hold back, or find excuses. Go and do it. A great message for me. I have been thinking about realising some projects, but i allways let something come in the way. This is the wake up call i needed to actually start with those projects. Thank you so much and respect for your content!

  24. Peter Lewis on April 5, 2023 at 10:30 am

    Canada is s "free-er" country than most.. it’s all but illegal to be a nomad in most countries.. you can end up in bad trouble if you park ….

  25. R39erZz on April 5, 2023 at 10:30 am

    Yeah its crazy how bad America is despite what everyone thinks, who wants to pay insurance, health-care, and blah blah blah.

  26. E MAN on April 5, 2023 at 10:30 am

    Awesome video! Great beautiful attitude broπŸ’ͺ🏽

  27. Russ Jones on April 5, 2023 at 10:32 am

    I think you’re oversimplifying the work ethic vs. employment opportunity paradigm. There have always been lazy people however this point in time seems to be indicative of something other than an epidemic of laziness.

  28. Lozenhimer on April 5, 2023 at 10:33 am

    you have an excellent outlook on everything. i love it. more people need your positivity. i’m enjoying your channel

  29. Mike Daniels on April 5, 2023 at 10:33 am

    I’m switching over from rv to van life. Can’t wait…

  30. jus ded on April 5, 2023 at 10:35 am

    Have a job, live in a trailer on a dedicated lot. May do a tour😊

  31. Matthew Mushlin on April 5, 2023 at 10:39 am

    Love your channel and your positive energy! Became a big fan today! Thank you ❀

  32. Bobu San on April 5, 2023 at 10:40 am

    The pay is the problem. Help wanted, but we don’t want to pay enough to live on. Your lack of understanding is part of the problem.

  33. Van Adventures on April 5, 2023 at 10:40 am

    Man this is what I want! Precious solitude!

  34. Rachel Aumann on April 5, 2023 at 10:41 am

    Living in a van isn’t for everyone and in many places it is too expensive to live and work at a place that has a help wanted sign (like a restaurant or coffee shop or grocery store). You mentioned it yourself, you wouldn’t have gotten out of debt for 25 years had you stayed in your brick and mortar spot. Although I have never worked in one of those types of jobs, it seems pretty clear that working a job for next to nothing while also not being treated with dignity and respect would mean lots of vacancies, especially in a wealthier area. I do, however, appreciate the message that it is not the end all be all to quit your whole life to live in a van full time.

  35. nlt10016 on April 5, 2023 at 10:43 am

    Love your encouraging words, put them on paper.. we can all use them.

  36. So What on April 5, 2023 at 10:44 am

    The most common sense advice I have heard about van life in several years.

  37. night on April 5, 2023 at 10:46 am

    Label of video sum’s it up

  38. Richard Boisvert on April 5, 2023 at 10:46 am

    I totally identify ! My exact feelings ! I built a 1947 greyhound , spent $60,000.00 on rebuild ! Yet I still have to pay rent for an Rv space ! Dealing with landlords and close neighbors ! Most not friendly ! Now , in my 2017gmc savana van I’m as happy as a duck in water ! By the way ! Anyone want to buy my 47 bus ! ?

  39. Deplorable Covfefe on April 5, 2023 at 10:46 am

    For most their just living in a van, down by the river….

  40. praying mother on April 5, 2023 at 10:46 am

    I’ll rather live a small r.v with my babies
    Only part I’m afraid of it the break down days when we have to leave our home and we have no where to go.

  41. 420 funny on April 5, 2023 at 10:47 am

    Van life and the lot are amazing af…not feasible at all if you have a normal job lol

  42. Life Of JazzyJai ! on April 5, 2023 at 10:47 am

    ❀ love the message in your video.

  43. Mecha_Frieza xSKA_GhosTx on April 5, 2023 at 10:50 am

    Tahoe life is better, just take out the middle or back seats. They’re almost useless.

  44. Call me Toast on April 5, 2023 at 10:50 am

    I’m tired of working brother..I’m not stopping but I just am so tired of it.

  45. jus ded on April 5, 2023 at 10:51 am

    This is the reality of American life. At least scaling down, and dumping rent, is still an option

  46. Robin WC on April 5, 2023 at 10:52 am

    Some excuses are legit though. Waiting for my two teenage boys to move out so I can do the nomad life. Can’t take them on the road because that van would be so cramped and stinky! πŸ˜‚

  47. Mike Daniels on April 5, 2023 at 10:57 am

    Bad to the bone yard…

  48. Richard Hall on April 5, 2023 at 11:01 am

    I need your help to get started. on advice. and on how to mack vidioe’s.

  49. The Xntrik Jay-Mo on April 5, 2023 at 11:02 am

    First glance at a vid. You seem to be a stand up guy.. subb’d

  50. Life Unfiltered on April 5, 2023 at 11:02 am

    I’m about to enter van life, it is a bucket list thing, abs I’m battling cancer, the third recurrence of it, so it’s either now or never, abd I’m so excited to get to do this for a while while I’m still healthy enough.
