    Great list, nice to finally see one that’s just got genuine essentials rather than hipster nonsense. I’ve always used a dustpan and brush but the hand-vacuum might be something i’d consider if I get a bigger van at any point. I’ve never seen the channel before but will definitely check out more

  14. Prola75 on September 7, 2022 at 4:52 am

    Have u tried cold brew coffee? Takes 12 to 24 hrs but u just make the coffee whenever u take it. It’s so easy. They claim it’s better for you than hot brewing

  15. ruinsane100 on September 7, 2022 at 4:53 am

    How do van lifers receive mail and packages? Do most of you have a home base?

  16. Moving on. on September 7, 2022 at 4:54 am

    I was watching Sarah’s videos first, then ran into your van build series. Did you two meet through van life and decide ""What a relationship!"Or, know each other for years? Not being nosey, but you two really seam like the perfect couple with the same goals in life.

  17. watermelon on September 7, 2022 at 4:55 am

    hi sara , you should do a episode about your closet, your choice of fashion when you live in a van. I noticed you have many pretty clothes , dress …, how can you manage your clothes in such a small place? i am curious, haha. nice video !

  18. Makena Serritelli on September 7, 2022 at 4:56 am

    What are the downsides to an AC?

  26. Eddie B on September 7, 2022 at 5:12 am

    I’m glad you’re back on the road I was getting a little burned out on the van build videos! S&A

  27. Hanae Tashwith on September 7, 2022 at 5:12 am

    Sara & alex i love your vlogs! U guys created a real home on wheels! Keep up the vlogs. Love them!

  28. Sunscreen Dreams on September 7, 2022 at 5:19 am

    Thanks for the suggestions, definitely some things you wouldn’t normally think of, especially the vacuum cleaner. ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Sher W on September 7, 2022 at 5:20 am

    So excited you guys are doing weekly videos now ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. UNROOT ME on September 7, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Your van looks awesome! One of the best ones I’ve seen. : ) Is that a full shower? Also definitely going to look into those towels. Typically we don’t need them because we stay in Airbnb but they sure would come in handy when staying in cabins without any towels. Don’t seem bulky. : )

  31. Dani on September 7, 2022 at 5:24 am

    Hi can you guys film a morning โ€œroutineโ€ for van life? Thanks oh and cool van๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  32. Debra Moss on September 7, 2022 at 5:31 am

    Thanks, some great inspiration! Had a quick look on Amazon UK, (We’re in Liverpool, home ofthe Beatles) not quite the same, but some goodies from your tips sorted already! Have you ever taken your own van overseas, would you consider it, or hire one when you get there? Goes without saying, if you’re ever this side of the pond, you’re welcome, we’re bang in the middle of all the great places and Liverpool is a freeport, much less hassle. Thanks again.

  33. big ed on September 7, 2022 at 5:34 am

    where in michigan were you guys at

  34. Sierra Pape on September 7, 2022 at 5:37 am
