Living in a van down by the river is a figurative expression meaning being a complete failure at life, a drain on society. However, nothing could be further than the truth for many, including us, who choose to live minimally while enjoying freedom and travel. So, fasten your seatbelts! We’re going to take you on a wild ride showing you how downsizing RVs works for us…and maybe give you that nudge to do it too!
As most who travel in RVs, digital devices have become our information hubs. There is a huge plethora of RV trip planning apps and/or websites that are an incredible resource for finding campgrounds, overnight parking, dump stations, dining and fuel.

The minimalist approach seems to be all the rage amongst millennials and baby boomers these days. Even since downsizing from our fifth wheel RV to an even smaller motorhome, we’re discovering we are much happier having less.

Even shopping for simple everyday necessities like food, cooking supplies, and toiletries, the minimalistic approach requires special concessions. We’re going to show you some simple minimalist shopping hacks that will make van life and small RV lifestyle easier and less stressful.

Here, we’ll share some Rv packing tips that will save you from heartaches, headaches and your wallet.
