➤ ABOUT US: Hi! We’re Nick & Raychel, the couple behind the blog Not Luxe – where we write travel guides & help people open their eyes to alternative living, whether that be teaching English online, moving to Cambodia, taking advantage of working holiday visas (like in Australia) or building a DIY stealthy camper van to live & work on the road. Right now, we’re living the van life and travelling throughout Canada and the USA.

Our goal here is to bring you weekly content where we hope to inspire you to break free & live the life you desire. On this channel, we talk everything from finances to minimalism to working online to mindset and post a weekly vlog of our daily lives. We hope you join us on our journey to see the world, save money, live minimally, and most importantly, have fun.

So if you’re looking for a channel about van life and budget travel, you’re in the right place.

That couple that lives in an ambulance

    Plastic wine cups??

    That’s what I’m really interested in. That’s a lot more convenient than glass.

    Your living my dream!!

  5. Ben on April 8, 2023 at 10:31 am

    Is there any way I can build a van with a template?

  6. Ana on April 8, 2023 at 10:31 am

    How much do you pay to sleep in a driveway? And how do you know they’re not psychos? 🙂 Seriously.

  7. LanceC on April 8, 2023 at 10:31 am

    My wife and I love your guys videos!! Keep them up! 😊

  8. MaxBlight on April 8, 2023 at 10:32 am

    Talking about the bathroom is because so many people here lack the creativity to ask themselves "what would I do if I’m far from home, and need to use the bathroom?"

  9. C on April 8, 2023 at 10:33 am

    Thanks for sharing “the other side.”

  10. Raymond Noppe on April 8, 2023 at 10:35 am

    When you guys make love does authorities or just people tend to bugg you’s? Lol

  11. Bella Shiloh on April 8, 2023 at 10:36 am

    How do you just walk up to people and become friends? I need a tutorial

  12. shannon bales on April 8, 2023 at 10:37 am

    I would love to do this. I have Lupus so I never know when I’ll get sick. Sucks! My husband takes me on trips so I’m not stuck at home all the time. Enjoy life! Safe travels!🙂

  13. timcarbone007 on April 8, 2023 at 10:37 am

    BTW you don’t HAVE to talk about your poo on the internet

  14. Billy SBC on April 8, 2023 at 10:38 am

    Or panhandling on the internet all day while avoiding life as a working person.

  15. Lauren Smith on April 8, 2023 at 10:39 am

    What do u do if u run out of tolote paiper

  16. momof2 on April 8, 2023 at 10:41 am

    Why do you want to be homeless

  17. Alive_8222 on April 8, 2023 at 10:42 am

    What are those "meet ‘n greets" called??

  18. Katharin Lannon on April 8, 2023 at 10:43 am

    You are so lucky you could not live like this in the UK. The vast majority of our Supermarkets have a time limitation of 2 hours for parking. They have either number plate recognition, or parking guys who would give you a ticket. Also chances to do your laundry are limited as our launderettes usually are open only office hours, like 9 till 6 pm. Chances to shower would be difficult as you would struggle to get a large vehicle in some of the car parks of gyms and only a few are open 24 hours and the cost of gym membership is ridiculously high. Our roads are not as wide as yours snd parking for more than an hour for free in a city is almost impossible 😟😏

  19. wholly mary on April 8, 2023 at 10:43 am

    Your not suppose to dig a hole you are suppose to collect it in a bucket and dispose of it properly in a toilet there are such a thing as a composting toilet they are small enough to fit into your van

  20. Queen on April 8, 2023 at 10:44 am

    Try pooping back to back so you have support 😂

  21. bernie miller on April 8, 2023 at 10:45 am

    You don’t have to talk about it on the internet.

  22. Jaime Folds on April 8, 2023 at 10:48 am

    Yayyy I love my hanging shoe organizer. It hangs on the head board of my front seat with a stretchy cord and it’s been so handy. I have a cup inside one with my spoons knives and forks. One with my vinegar spray bottle, lotions, sanitizer, cats leash water bottle and. So on. Such a great find from the beginning until now. 6 months in 🙂 happy travels 🥾🧳 to you all!!

    1. How does banking works? (Like for us, in person withdrawals can only be done at home branch[where you made the account]. Debit cards have 5 free withdrawals, then a service charge is put. From what I’ve heard, videos & some online fb friends is that use of your credit cards usage is blatant (like every kids only use iPhone & rare cases Androids) & only few use debit cards.

    2. Room freshener or the car freshner?

    3. Where & how do you get water from.?

    4. Do you go back to the house to be a “resident” for a small amount of period for voting or you can vote anywhere?.

  24. marikie marie on April 8, 2023 at 10:50 am

    I definitely want to van life but it’s not going to happen until a toilet situation is done first. I’ll buy the toilet then the van. Lol no way will be digging a hole… especially in the middle of the night. Nope. Get a bag over a bucket trimmed with pool noodle. Less than 10 bucks.

  25. Lori Deedly on April 8, 2023 at 10:50 am

    haha, seatbelt your sauces!!… So cute

  26. Payden Ismay on April 8, 2023 at 10:53 am

    How big of a van should I get for comfortable van life?

  27. M N on April 8, 2023 at 10:54 am

    How do you handle mail? With van life are you gng cross country? I love the sauce hack

  28. Verlinda Allen on April 8, 2023 at 10:55 am

  31. skyler boyette on April 8, 2023 at 10:58 am

  32. PROFESSOR I.C. on April 8, 2023 at 10:59 am

    Uhh, yeah. ‘Can I sleep in your driveway?’

  33. Wario DS on April 8, 2023 at 11:00 am

    Have a hard time deciding what I want for vanlife vehicle, vans can get around pretty much everywhere but feel way too cramped. Buses offer allot more space, some are way too long and double deckers height could cause problems with some places (low bridges and similar things).

    Feeling more and more than a larger light truck or a short bus be my vehicle of choice.

  34. sussi Jensen on April 8, 2023 at 11:01 am

    hi from Danmark 🌏🌱🌳🐝🌬🌞🌈❤️
    🤣👍great movie

  38. Paige Mann on April 8, 2023 at 11:04 am

    Don’t you ever wanna permanently put down roots somewhere?

  39. Pamela Scott on April 8, 2023 at 11:05 am

    Sounds like lots of fun.😊😊🤭🤭😉😉

  40. Self Esteem on April 8, 2023 at 11:07 am

    how much did you pay to rent the driveway and did the driveway owners advertise to find
    Van – Lifers ? Or, ? if I may, ask ?

    I’d like to get into providing a parking spot for nomads. Any Advice ?

  41. Michael Clair on April 8, 2023 at 11:07 am

    Does it ever creep you out being in an ambulance? Considering that people have died in it.

  42. Maisie Watkinson on April 8, 2023 at 11:11 am

    What do you guys do if one or both of you is sick? For example a stomach bug. Do you park somewhere that has easy access to a bathroom? Do you go somewhere close to a hospital just incase? I’m genuinely curious

  43. Harry Ebskmap on April 8, 2023 at 11:13 am

    in NZ it’s limitless

  44. Linda Miller on April 8, 2023 at 11:14 am

    Visit an nude country club in Oklahoma OakLake Trails

  45. new beginnings 4TyGrr on April 8, 2023 at 11:17 am

    I live in my SUV I have squatted to pee outside but I never had to dig a hole yet 😆

  46. Courtney Meyers on April 8, 2023 at 11:18 am

    I really think entrepreneurs should think about purchasing large old parking lots. Set them up for urban camping and charge a low fee to park for the night

    It would be a win win for everyone. As a working homeless person right now I would love to find a safe secured place and be legal

  47. Scarlettplays on April 8, 2023 at 11:19 am

    What do you do if you get food poisoning or get sick?

  48. Dragon gamer324 on April 8, 2023 at 11:19 am

    Y’all have a retired ambulance?😂

  49. That one guy on April 8, 2023 at 11:19 am

    How much?

  50. Your friend Rick on April 8, 2023 at 11:20 am

    Why doesn’t anyone tell the truth it’s expensive asf to start living in a van unless u buy them old Chevy vans but even then u can’t get a job bc u don’t have a home address so I’m guessing within about a yr or too ur gonna be done
