Hello, All! I’m Jeanette. Right now Ryan (husband) and I camp out of our 2014 Promaster High Top Cargo Van. It’s totally modular, bare bones, and Low Tech. There is sound proofing, Thinsulate, foam board, Reflectix, thick rubber floor mat, portable folding tables, 5 gallon water bottles with battery powered pump, Korean cook stove, collapsible sink, sawdust toilet, bunks made out of 6 foot long industrial shelf from Lowe’s that has memory foam cushions to sleep on, a Hammock hanging inside, Goal Zero Yeti 1500 and bunches of hanging GZ lights, Dometic Freezer/Fridge combo, Dog Beds, etc.
It’s not fancy, but it’s awesome. We haven’t done a hard conversion to it because we own Viking Kayaks USA and Rockport Kayak, and need to transport kayaks and gear both on a trailer and inside the van.
We have windows, Max Air, and Solar that have yet to be installed.
In the mundane world I am a Hospice RN, and I drive an older Ford SUV all day long. I have been wanting to go full-time #VanLife for YEARS. I need to get my own van, ditch the SUV, and do a full conversion.
I’m actually here to gleam some info on how people have ditched a house full of stuff, and convinced their spouses that it’s a great idea!
Thanks for reading!
