Do you have experience building or living in a van?

Living in a van has been a life changing experience for us. We want to encourage others to take a leap and join the adventure. If you have a blog, social channel or simply pictures to share we’d love to hear from you.

The more van life stories we can spread, the more well-rounded view our readers will get about van life. Everyone’s experience is going to be different so we encourage people to submit that have a unique angle to contribute.

What’s in it for you?

We will share your story on our blog and social media channels (Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest). You will get links back to relevant pages to help others learn more about van life.
