This comical and quirky documentary answers questions posed to prominent members of the Van dwelling community. Can this lifestyle replace the "American Dream" of the home in the suburbs? Is it really how it looks on instagram? and what does it take to become famous for #Vanlife? the classic format of an Interview based Documentary gets dismantled partway through this movie, as Forrest decides to attempt to make himself #VanLife famous on instagram. The only problem is... he doesn't even live in a van.

If you have a steady income, then you can live well in a motor home. But when there is no money, it’s profitable to live in a van near the place of work

Converted and lived in a bus over a decade a go, back when van life was just “living in a van down by the river.” It is nice to see the non glamorous side of things be in focus. Van life has its many challenges. The times spent peeing in bottles or racing to a bathroom for other needs. Cold nights. Parking hassles, and knocks. Breakdowns, gelled fuel and more breakdowns. It can be daunting. Yet i got a 2nd bus 5 years ago. And my kid wants to embark on a 3rd van including her. It is a thing more people should try before investing deeply into their builds, and not for the likes nor the “glamour.”

very true everything is overly beautified in reality it can be hard i think insulation is not all shown it is really cold even if it's insulated need heat source van life is a space to live if you are lucky to own a vehicle because rents dont equate with salaries

It is illegal to camp at beaches and sleep in parked vehicles etc in Australia (VIC anyway). You have to do so at camping grounds which you need to pay for. I know a few travelling surfers that have done it - most of the time they're moved on by rangers.

GREAT video and content! Appreciate the truth and the highlight of some of the false “glam life” video/shows. I feel you showed reality much more clearly. The man bun cracked me up! My naive self never even considered men using hair extensions! Lol. Your ending video was the normal glamorizing I see. Watching this has educated me 100%. I appreciate you for choosing to make this video.🤘🏼

I can say from a truck driver's perspective that it is definitely a lifestyle. If you want to be glamorous, stick to a part-time camping type of arrangement. If you want to do it to get rid of the house payment and leave the rat race, it's more sacrifice than gain. If problem-solving is a way of life for you and you're always finding ways to do things in a practical way rather than a beautiful and social sort of make-people-envy-you kind of way, you might like it. You give up a lot and mold your lifestyle to fit smaller and cheaper. Would you be okay with pooping in a bucket lined with a shopping bag sometimes or using a composting toilet and peeing in a thermos? How about taking a basin bath with a rag, paper towels, and a spray bottle? How about idling the vehicle so your defroster can keep it dry inside? Do you plan on having enough money to buy a whole new vehicle if necessary or staying somewhere while it's worked on? How about getting your entertainment from smaller and more versatile things like a good smart phone, pen and paper, and a laptop and getting rid of just about everything else? Side note: social media shows you the over-romanticized side because those people make affiliate income from the parts they use, they sell plans, and make income from the videos.

Liked the video BRO you did good very entertaining and we'll done! I bought a transit med roof so I can stand in it and I started watching these Van life vids when planning the van out. Now I'm kinda hooked. For me so far it's been more about outfitting the van and building it taking advantage of every little inch as you all know well!! I have a dc fridge, diesel heater and winch, lites, inverter power, fan and some big 6 volt golf cart deep cycles with a monitor system I have yet to finish installing. But I've spent the nite in it in cold Minnesota winter and it's pretty cool. Now I just need to plan a destination or a trip maybe without a destination! Seems like alot of cool people in this world. Thank for a peak into your Vanlife!

No I've seen I have seen many of older women who have been divorced living in Vans because they spent their lives in a marriage and then when it was over and they had nothing. And I've seen a lot of young executive women building their vans I think you need to get outside the box

Hmmm. Try $4,200.00 for a one bedroom in Culver City CA - yes it’s true. Or park your stealth van on Venice Blvd for free. That’s an annual saving of 50K a year. I’ll pee in a bottle for that.

It's ironic people think this is about the young. When in our 60's we can't get mortgages, despite being on 6 figure salaries, because we're too old!

why would you want a mortgage?? IMHO rent and spend on experiences and memories!

So how do you raise kids if you live in a van?
I don’t get it have you never heard of a campa toilet? Why are they shitting in the woods? Baby pool + camp shower. SolarPVC + garden hose shower. Sling + unlimited data, why aren’t you watching TV? Great video!

As a GenXer, I find the similarities between the Boomers and the van lifters interesting. The Boomers wanted to get ahead financially (don't we all) and so they became double-income earners with latchkey kids. Real estate rocketed due to demand and now their kids and GenZ are trying to get ahead by living in vehicles. It makes me wonder how much the costs of vans will explode due to demand. What can the next generation possibly do to survive if even living in a vehicle becomes prohibitive?
