Mom of a vanlifer


Hello! My daughter and her boyfriend (both 20) just bought a 2006 Sprinter 2500 and will be converting it over the next nine months. I fully support their dreams and am so excited for them! Any tips, advice, thoughts for a very young couple starting this journey?

They did a 37-day cross country road trip together this summer in a small Subaru, camping and really roughing it most of the time, and they loved it, so they kind of know what they’re getting into … or at least they got a taste for it.


Greetings & Welcome!

One of the most important things is money. If you don’t have a travel friendly job, then it is advisable to hone their skills at finding work on the road.

Money can fix almost anything we encounter, and a large emergency fund is a very good idea.



That’s so awesome. Glad to see you supporting them through it as well!
