What do you do for Insurance (travel or otherwise)


I’m new to van life (although obsessing about it for years!).

My wife and I travel full time (left the US in Aug/2015) and have been on the road since. We do a lot of house sitting and workaway, so the idea of having our own space again is really attractive to us.

We have international health insurance, but this doesn’t cover us beyond 1 month if we were back in the US. (mainly because it’s cheaper than normal health insurance and isn’t tied to an employer situation)

What do you guys do for health insurance while in the US?

We are currently weighing the value of buying and building a van in the US vs doing so in the UK or Europe somewhere, and this is a consideration.

Thanks for taking the time to read this! I’m super excited about this!
