Traveling on a Budget
Since living in small spaces means less cost is involved for travel expenses, the versatility allows travelers to visit remote destinations while still on a budget. Most van life enthusiasts are also considered overlanders, or those who enjoy exploring by their own self-contained means. These vandwellings contain modifications of basic amenities such as batteries, solar panels, a bed platform, some form of toilet, sink and storage space.

#Vanlife is more than just the type of vehicle you drive or how much money you spent modifying it. The movement is about taking control of your life and creating your own path. Through this experience, you get to explore new destinations and meet people from all walks of life.
