👬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!

  2. Dusty Feller on May 7, 2023 at 11:41 am

    No, I still haven’t watched Mandalorian…but I HAVE seen Vandalorian and it’s hilarious!

  3. Kathi D on May 7, 2023 at 11:42 am

    Seriously though, 7 or 8 minutes would be long enough for a video. 🙂

  4. Ethan Smith on May 7, 2023 at 11:42 am

    Way to work that sponge and electrical cord bracelet, Chad! I’m not sure Paul has quite mastered how to work that drone though! 😂

  5. Arvind Mallya on May 7, 2023 at 11:43 am

    Love the video, I have the same hairdryer 🙂

  6. TJ Larson on May 7, 2023 at 11:44 am

    Um, at the end, some things you just can’t unsee. 😁

  7. mirna diaz on May 7, 2023 at 11:45 am

    Excellent video! Great ideas and good dancing!!! Best to you and yours!

  8. Dusty Feller on May 7, 2023 at 11:45 am

    My sick beat was Sick Beat by kero kero bonito!

  9. Shelly Fit Gal on May 7, 2023 at 11:45 am

    Great tips ! Love the dance moves 🕺🏽

  10. Life of Riley on May 7, 2023 at 11:46 am

    Lake George. Sigh.

  11. James Canfield on May 7, 2023 at 11:46 am

    Awesome!,

  12. Tommy and Peter on May 7, 2023 at 11:47 am

    You make washing the dishes so fun, I wish we had more dirty dishes so I could go wash them right now!

  13. Ger Ger on May 7, 2023 at 11:47 am

    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?

  15. Peggy Carilli on May 7, 2023 at 11:54 am

    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)

  16. CarlottaART on May 7, 2023 at 11:56 am

    Chad, I can see why Paul loves you. You’re hilarious LOL. So is Paul 🙂 …Great tips. Thank you both!!

  17. Halloweenqueen on May 7, 2023 at 11:56 am

    Love all that green living!

  18. WildlyWheeling on May 7, 2023 at 11:56 am

    Thank you for a good lol!

  19. Diane Ligon on May 7, 2023 at 11:57 am

    It’s great to see you looking so happy. I’m glad things are going so well.

  20. Tara C on May 7, 2023 at 12:01 pm

    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.🕺🏻

  21. Anthony C Brown on May 7, 2023 at 12:02 pm

    Poor Paul … Chad has put pressure on Paul to ‘bring the moves’ on YouTube. 😎. Paul does not appear to be easily intimidated. Great channel.

  22. Steve Pride on May 7, 2023 at 12:03 pm

    It’s 5AM. Never command Alexa on camera to play "Sick Beats." It did. Not funny in 2020.

  23. Aaron Kile on May 7, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    You turned on my Alexa when you asked to play some sick beats.

  24. Wayne on May 7, 2023 at 12:05 pm

    Hello from Melbourne Australia; loving the sick beats lol

  25. Kathi D on May 7, 2023 at 12:06 pm

    Where’s the link for the slap bracelet? I’ve checked a few places online but can’t find it.

  26. Kevin S on May 7, 2023 at 12:07 pm

    Would be interesting to watch a winter van life episode

  27. Retro Galaxy on May 7, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    Thank you so much😍

  28. Ary Agusta on May 7, 2023 at 12:08 pm

    Nice move… actually it’s funny…

  29. Krav Maga Beveren on May 7, 2023 at 12:10 pm

    Your a funny dude man 🙂 also awesome tips!

  30. Dan Holden on May 7, 2023 at 12:11 pm

    Fun video with lots of laughs….Got a cook, dish cleaner, clothes washer, and a dancer. What can’t you do?

  31. JR on May 7, 2023 at 12:14 pm

    You’re a Funny Dude. Loosen Up, Paul. Thanks.

  32. Rob Theodore on May 7, 2023 at 12:16 pm

    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.

  33. 30 And A Wake Up on May 7, 2023 at 12:17 pm

    Good stuff! Stealing the spritzer idea…Ive got the Berkey Sport….love the thing. Keep the dancing!

  34. Peter Emerson on May 7, 2023 at 12:17 pm

    One of my favorite videos! Love those sick beats.

  35. Dot ComMom on May 7, 2023 at 12:17 pm

    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?

  36. Josie Sa on May 7, 2023 at 12:18 pm

    Vandorean, 😂

  37. Johnnie Montgomery on May 7, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    Hilarious at the end. What a hoot.

  38. Ava Weintraub on May 7, 2023 at 12:23 pm

    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.

  39. Dan Kerr on May 7, 2023 at 12:24 pm

    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.

  40. Great Granny Free Bird on May 7, 2023 at 12:24 pm

    fun presentation and such entertaining dance Chad. Love your channel. found you through ’30 and a wakeup’.

  41. Retro Galaxy on May 7, 2023 at 12:25 pm

    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.

  42. Kathy Barry on May 7, 2023 at 12:29 pm

    I wish we could like more than once. You guys rock!💕💕💕

  43. GoodLifeWellTraveled on May 7, 2023 at 12:32 pm

    Love it boys. Keep up the adventure.

  44. Johnnie Montgomery on May 7, 2023 at 12:33 pm

    Just now seeing this. Hilarious CHAD!!!

  45. Linda Valiquette on May 7, 2023 at 12:35 pm

    So it’s easy to see who keeps the insanity in the relationship– that would be me, too, Chad– makes life bearable!

  46. Freedom Imagined on May 7, 2023 at 12:36 pm

    Hi guys, just wanted to drop in and say I saw you today. I was the guy in uniform that waved at you.

  47. Peggy Carilli on May 7, 2023 at 12:37 pm

    We love your van’s name! Just rewatched this video and ordered my favorite thing – the RVminders. Thanks for all these ideas!

  48. Doreen Gardner on May 7, 2023 at 12:38 pm

    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!
