It's over, bros.
Van Life is dead, buried, and soon to be forgotten.
All the trendy online hipsters killed it.
But never fear.
There's a new trend waiting in the wings to replace it.

I've got a van as a daily driver with a nice setup that's a step up from a tent in the back. When the whole van life meme started it's amazing the amount of people that forgot that it's legal to still own a house and that I don't actually live 24/7 in a tiny little van.

Not him but I have no rare gets as far as my van is concerned
I have outgrown it , but I did severy builds until I found exactly what suited me
My next van is going to be a ford transit if they ever start fucking making them again

Things I got rid of along the way
Sink , what a waste of space
Passenger seat, its rare that there is a need for it since I am forever alone
Windows, when I want to see outside I leave the door open

Stuff you need for sure
Stove
5 gallon water dispenser
Fridge (a cooler is no fun for extended travel)
Pee bottle and poop bucket. Make these good ones and learn how to use them right or your life will be horrible
Maxxair fan
Heavy duty tires so you dont bust a sidewall offroad
Tarps and tent pole awning and learn the tricks of setup
Good ground cover mat for under awning
Solar is pretty hard to live without if you camp for extended periods

Reliability very good. I have a KZN130 which is a JDM import with the
3.0l turbodiesel. Obviously, because it has a turbo, there's a whole
other system of factors in play and to take care of. The killer of the
1KZ-TE engine is overheating and blowing the head, so preventative
measures like aftermarket EGT/water temp gauges, lower thermostat
setpoint and relocation, viscous fan adjustment, and higher quality
radiator will ensure for a long life.
I previously had a Toyota Hilux LN106 which had the 2.8l naturally
aspirated diesel in it. Though the machine is african-bush certified
bulletproof, it was just too slow for the highways we have here in
america. Absolute dog of an engine, but entirely trustworthy.
Nonetheless, I miss it sometimes after selling it a year ago.

bone stock at the time.

I just want all the retards who bought vans and RVs during COVID to realize they are wasting their money and sell them. These newfags are the ones getting camping sites shut down because they can't be bothered to pack out their garbage, or avoid damaging the environment. The authorities have to come and clear them out, and then shut the place down while it recovers. The new wave of van lifers is destroying everything.

Skoolies and big RVs are kind of scary. You have no idea if the person driving them has ever driven anything bigger than a Honda Accord in their life, if they know how to properly conduct a daily inspection, if they're doing good maintenance, if they're completely sober... because when a 12,000 lb. vehicle goes out of control, it makes a BIG mess.

>>2363004
A modern laptop should pull like 10w or less at idle. Get a 12v adapter and you should be fine. If you refuse to spend money on gas to idle you'll need a 100w panel in the sun for a good portion of the day.

Do not ever take a woman with you on an extended camping trip.
A woman’s idea of camping is to do a two hour hike where they can take borderline naked selfies at a waterfall in the hopes of getting even a sliver of internet clout, before going back to their air conditioned cabin.
Every woman who makes “van life” videos is a fucking liar, and many of them have already been exposed. They drive their vans to a nice looking beach, get some b-roll footage to layer over acoustic guitar sounds, and then they drive that van right back to the hotel that they’re actually staying at.
I know a guy and girl who did van life for 3 months out of college, she hated it and if he didn’t finally settle down in an apartment she was gonna leave him. Killed his dreams of adventure because she wanted a bath tub.
I hate women so much it’s unreal.

Go on Instagram or Facebook or something and search for AT, PCT, or CDT. There are plenty of girls (not women; women haven’t existed for a few generations) doing those, and a handful will have finished all three this year. That’s a lot of effort for likes and comments.
>>
>>2368180
Not really. When every fiber of your being burns for attention, and your mind's sole thought it "look at me!" then of course you will go to extreme lengths to satisfy your craving. That, and children walk the AT, anon. Come on. The PCT is the only one that you could argue takes effort, and even then, it's just planning. Your average person should (key word) already be fit enough to walk any of those.

This is why I completely stopped telling any normal fag any locations. I made the mistake a few times and now all the city fags go there because some asshole posted it on komoot or any other app or something. Places that are just nice to wander through or chill out. Sometimes a bit dangerous, now dumb city hipster assholes go there with their dogs and kids, then cry for it to be fenced off for everyone and guarded when someone gets hurt for being a disconnected piece of shit... NEVER tell or post locations. Only share with people who are not normie slime and only in person.
