Tour of a Nomad Living in a Class B Van

Tour of a Nomad Living in a Class B Van


I believe the very best balance of comfort and true freedom comes from a Class B camper van. These are full RVs with all the comforts of home miniaturized so much they will fit in the space of a van. The problem with them is that they are also the most expensive of all RVs per square foot–new ones start at $100,000. For most of us, that means buying a used one. However, even used they are expensive because they are so popular and hold their value so well. It’s just a matter of luck and diligence searching for one you can afford.

Today we meet Bill who found a great deal on a used Dodge Horizon Camper van and he graciously allows us to take a look around.

  2. Jay A. on February 17, 2023 at 7:10 am

    Nice home with a view that he can change when he wants to!

  3. BackCountry Jay on February 17, 2023 at 7:12 am

    I love that "we’re not in a beauty contest, your trying to live comfortably for you" that makes me feel even better about me saying my home is and will always be more function then beauty πŸ˜…. I like the color of wood tho 🀣

  4. Dragon 67 on February 17, 2023 at 7:13 am

    Very practical.

  5. Shamrock Girl on February 17, 2023 at 7:14 am

    * Luv RV tours – always fascinated w/set up, creative approach, execution
    * Bob, U EXCEL in setting others @ ease, reassuring them that its their life, their choices.

  6. dailydoseofnirvana on February 17, 2023 at 7:18 am

    Wonderful how he has designed a life of his own. He sounds pretty darn content and also happy to be exploring the west 😎

  7. Data Is Amazing on February 17, 2023 at 7:19 am

    This seems like a good setup. A van tall enough to stand up in, something reliable too. I’m thinking maybe own a lot somewhere that you could home base on. Maybe I’ll get one of these and use it for camping first to get a feel of it.

  8. krissyrep808 on February 17, 2023 at 7:21 am

    I wish you have update videos of these awesome people…the older videos u have

  9. Ciaran Mc manus on February 17, 2023 at 7:22 am

    is that guy a radio operator

  10. MarkusFlanks on February 17, 2023 at 7:22 am

    Nice video. This is far more impressive than my set up, and sure informative.

  11. Sunlinebeeches Nomaddahtous on February 17, 2023 at 7:23 am

    Nice van set up… ready for anything

  12. DL M on February 17, 2023 at 7:27 am

    I love how much you just let people be themselves. You don’t judge and let them know that you welcome any of their ways of life. So refreshing Bob. Thank you for being on youtube.

  13. RemusKingOfRome5 on February 17, 2023 at 7:27 am

    cool van

  14. Nancy Fahey on February 17, 2023 at 7:28 am

    That is some great space. Thanks Bill and Bob. Btw, I’m in Homosassa Springs.

  15. Grandma Bean on February 17, 2023 at 7:28 am

    Another awesome video! Makes me so want to be able to do this?

  16. Nancy Fahey on February 17, 2023 at 7:29 am

    That’s alotta stuff in a small space. Gotta watch that one again.

  17. skylar brooks on February 17, 2023 at 7:29 am

    that’s a beautiful van! the bed looks super cute & comfy.

  18. John Kennedyk on February 17, 2023 at 7:30 am

    I’m sorry for asking a question here but my phone is old and temperamental . I’m having trouble getting on your forum . I’m about to get a new phone so that want be a problem much longer. I’m 55 years old and I make $930 a month through my disability I broke my back in 06 and was unable to stand up for long periods of time afterwards. Do you think I’ll have much trouble living on that 9:30 a month when I come out on the road with y’all.

  19. JB85128 on February 17, 2023 at 7:31 am

    Nice van. I was wondering how many classics you come across (Like 60’s and 70’s)? I see many newer rigs while I am on the road, but not many classic rigs. My ride is a 1974 Dodge Tradesman 200 MaxiVan and I love how easy it is to work on.

  20. Dianne Cassata on February 17, 2023 at 7:33 am

    What a great van/home and an awesome philosophy you have Bill!!! I pray that I can do this one day soon.You are SO organized!.. Just perfect!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

  21. Misty Cunningham on February 17, 2023 at 7:36 am

    Wow did u get a new camera? ??

  22. KINGBASS69 on February 17, 2023 at 7:36 am

    How much solar would you need in order to use the microwave as well?

  23. Ruth LeClere on February 17, 2023 at 7:37 am

    Hey bob…im looking for your interview of wicked stone………love all your videos…can you tell me where to look

  24. Jim Furr on February 17, 2023 at 7:38 am

    What kind of insects?
    Roaches? Bedbugs? Weevils? Gnats? Mosquitoes?
    What did you have in mind in the interview?

  25. Act9 on February 17, 2023 at 7:39 am

    How awesome, I’ve been waiting for this vid to come out.
    I was in the Roadtrek that you caught a cpl times at the beginning of this vid.
    It was the best hanging hanging out with Bill at the RTR.
    Great vid Bob.

  26. jamie zebra23 on February 17, 2023 at 7:42 am

  30. CTV on February 17, 2023 at 7:43 am

    Is he saying SHORE or SURE POWER, and what is that?

  31. Hello Juneau on February 17, 2023 at 7:45 am

    I know this may seem odd to ask, but are there any young people going to the RTR? Bob’s been such an influence on me that I’d like to go when I start … I don’t necessarily want to be the only 13 year old looking girl there! Lol πŸ™‚ Awesome van, I wish I could find one on the cheaper side though. It has good bones.

  32. Augie pagano on February 17, 2023 at 7:46 am

    He’s got the life awesome

  33. gigicats6 on February 17, 2023 at 7:47 am

    That van doesn’t feel like a van when inside.

  34. Becky Taylor on February 17, 2023 at 7:48 am

    Love it!❀

  35. Kat1791 on February 17, 2023 at 7:49 am

    Nice set-up Bill. Love the way you utilize all your space –looks comfy too : )

  36. K MAC on February 17, 2023 at 7:49 am

    So enjoy your reviews/interviews Bob. Such a non-threatening interview style. You inspire many people.

  37. Aileene Fields on February 17, 2023 at 7:52 am

    Love that Van!! ❀

  38. Free RV on February 17, 2023 at 7:52 am

  39. Antonia Hynes on February 17, 2023 at 7:53 am

    So nice of Bill to share his home and experience with us! I love how proud he is of his fishing poles. I love to fish! Another great interview Bob!

  40. Aileene Fields on February 17, 2023 at 7:54 am

    Freedom is the Way to Live!!πŸ˜‡

  41. REVEREND DAVID HAMM on February 17, 2023 at 7:55 am

    Hi Bob what a Great Guy with a Great Van I enjoyed this video thank you for doing it

  42. tim goodsell on February 17, 2023 at 7:55 am

    Neat guy. Livin’ the dream.

  43. Michelle Johnson on February 17, 2023 at 7:56 am

    I love that Dodge! Very nice. I hope I can find me one ike that out here in Marion County Fl

  44. BaconNBeer on February 17, 2023 at 7:58 am

    Bill needs to go see Muley Point in Utah if he likes the landscape at the RTR. As people, age and family is raised and gone they really should consider trading up to a life of freedom and experiencing things instead of just watching the world go by until you die. I would rather fall off a cliff while hiking and die rather than lay in a hospital bed for 7 years like my stepfather.

  45. stranjedaze25 on February 17, 2023 at 7:59 am

    Bill is a cool dude. I like Bill.

  46. Steven Richardson on February 17, 2023 at 7:59 am

    Tks Bob, another great video!! Hope to see you soon..

  47. Jeff Spirdione on February 17, 2023 at 8:00 am

    Man, that’s one nasty scar! I wonder what happened?

  48. Lora J Hernandez on February 17, 2023 at 8:05 am

    I’m 43 and can’t wait to retire at 55 and do this πŸ’– will not work to my 70s if people can live on $600 a month why not thank you I always tell my friends about you πŸ€— God bless πŸ™πŸ»

  49. Paula Bradley on February 17, 2023 at 8:07 am

    great space i really love what youve done with your space. be safe

  50. Miss Lindalou on February 17, 2023 at 8:08 am

    What does it mean when a video is replaced with the following message, "This video has been removed by the user." I am seeing it quite often.
