Hi there new to forum

Introduce Yourself…

Want to get into the van life , trying to convince my wife but she’s not feeling it lol

Greetings & Welcome!

For couples, a motorhome or travel trailer is frequently a better choice than a van. Most women prefer all the comforts of home, even if it is a home on wheels. Not everybody desires a life of travel, and most women want security first, and adventure is way down on their list of priorities.

Motorhomes can be bought cheap, but start at the beginning and get a mobile friendly income figured out first. Figure out ways that your adventure can help you save more money for the future, without compromising on comfort, family, friends, friendships, or income.

Start with small, close to home camping adventures to beautiful places, with lots of things to see and do, but keep it at a leisurely, enjoyable pace. Maybe she’ll come around, or maybe not, but remember that this needs both of you on board before it will ever work out.

Sometimes it’s in the presentation and the practicality… Maybe to find a better place to plant roots, better job opportunities, or maybe better weather. There can be many reasons why exploring can be both advantageous and enjoyable. Just never risk more than you can comfortably afford to lose.
