👬Who we are:
Hey, we’re Chad and Paul. We lived a pretty typical life up until a few years ago. Chad was a speech-language pathologist and Paul was an attorney. We worked in New York City and by all means were set. But we didn’t feel settled. We wanted something different. We started a bunch of online businesses, quit our 9-5’s and now we live an unconventional life in our van (a 21′ Winnebago Travato). Follow along with us on our journey.

I think Paul now has an obligation to dance on camera as well lol. Fun video – will def steal the doggy sign idea!
No, I still haven’t watched Mandalorian…but I HAVE seen Vandalorian and it’s hilarious!
Seriously though, 7 or 8 minutes would be long enough for a video. 🙂
Way to work that sponge and electrical cord bracelet, Chad! I’m not sure Paul has quite mastered how to work that drone though! 😂
Love the video, I have the same hairdryer 🙂
Um, at the end, some things you just can’t unsee. 😁
Excellent video! Great ideas and good dancing!!! Best to you and yours!
My sick beat was Sick Beat by kero kero bonito!
Great tips ! Love the dance moves 🕺🏽
Lake George. Sigh.
You make washing the dishes so fun, I wish we had more dirty dishes so I could go wash them right now!
Use paper plates and burn the used plates in the campfire, to keep mosquitos at bay. Hang large camouflage blanket on outer side of the van during day to keep it cool and hide the van at nite. Really makes the van go away from site…..Most box stores sell spray wash/wax bottle to clean the paint on the outside > I try to do it daily, keeps the van clean and looks like your a local just stopping for minute. Buy a clam tent, great for sitting outdoor and not getting eaten by bugs. Keep engine-radiator hood open, put a sm lite in there, keeps animals at bay from eating wires and insulation, epec at night. Do you use the little free library stand in front of many homes, located across the nation. There is map of locations.
Nice moves LOL! What size Berkey do you have?
Check out the Scrubba portable wash bag . This bag is small and I used to use it when we flew to Europe with one suitcase and a backpack — it doesn’t take up much space. This is so much easier to wash things like T-shirts and stuff with no mess in a small amount of water. Haven’t traveled anywhere in our Travato yet. Since our van shower can’t supply endless water like the hotels used to do, can’t wait to see if my husband gives this a try. (Available at amazon and Scrubba website)
Chad, I can see why Paul loves you. You’re hilarious LOL. So is Paul 🙂 …Great tips. Thank you both!!
Love all that green living!
Thank you for a good lol!
It’s great to see you looking so happy. I’m glad things are going so well.
Hello from Tampa Bay area! I found your channel from Kevin and Scott’s channels. It’s nice how supportive the Travato community is. Good tips! Safe travels, scritches to Orlando.🕺🏻
Poor Paul … Chad has put pressure on Paul to ‘bring the moves’ on YouTube. 😎. Paul does not appear to be easily intimidated. Great channel.
It’s 5AM. Never command Alexa on camera to play "Sick Beats." It did. Not funny in 2020.
You turned on my Alexa when you asked to play some sick beats.
Hello from Melbourne Australia; loving the sick beats lol
Where’s the link for the slap bracelet? I’ve checked a few places online but can’t find it.
Would be interesting to watch a winter van life episode
Thank you so much😍
Nice move… actually it’s funny…
Your a funny dude man 🙂 also awesome tips!
Fun video with lots of laughs….Got a cook, dish cleaner, clothes washer, and a dancer. What can’t you do?
You’re a Funny Dude. Loosen Up, Paul. Thanks.
We have your exact same van.
You can save water by using isopropyl alcohol 3 to 1 in a spray bottle don’t need to rinse, vinegar 3 to 1 don’t need to rinse and use a paper towel to clean. we almost never use dish soap.
You can also just wipe the freezer down as you go along. Plan your opening and closing of the refrigerator get your ducks lined up the less you open and close the less defrosting that’s where the humidity gets in. We were just up in New England for six weeks we only defrosted once at the very end of the trip.
If you join Boondockers Welcome stay at someone’s house for free every once in a while they all have water and some have dumps.
Good stuff! Stealing the spritzer idea…Ive got the Berkey Sport….love the thing. Keep the dancing!
One of my favorite videos! Love those sick beats.
Is that Visable mobile $20/mo for only the first month or as long as you as subscribed?
Where’d you get those large whit bowls?
Hilarious at the end. What a hoot.
Another great video. Chad you are so funny! Just an FYI, I sometimes have trouble finding water. I was in Albuquerque and almost every spigot I tried to use was turned off permanently. I finally asked why and was told by one store owner who told me homeless people were using them to wash up. Seems harsh but I don’t know what these places were dealing with. I’ve had the best luck at visitor centers.
Like your vids, guys but we always skip the rest of a creator uses a wake word for a device. Just mute the word "Alexa" when you’re editing.
fun presentation and such entertaining dance Chad. Love your channel. found you through ’30 and a wakeup’.
OMG When you said Alexa play some sick beats I started laughing and then my Alexa in the kitchen started playing Mega Man by Lil Wayne. Now your controlling my Alexa from your Van haha.
I wish we could like more than once. You guys rock!💕💕💕
Love it boys. Keep up the adventure.
Just now seeing this. Hilarious CHAD!!!
So it’s easy to see who keeps the insanity in the relationship– that would be me, too, Chad– makes life bearable!
Hi guys, just wanted to drop in and say I saw you today. I was the guy in uniform that waved at you.
We love your van’s name! Just rewatched this video and ordered my favorite thing – the RVminders. Thanks for all these ideas!
Loved your dancing! I just heard Stevie Winter’s What Christmas Means To Me! I was dancing in my kitchen and I thought of you dancing in the parking lot! What fun!!!! Thanks to the both of you for these videos!
