Adventures never stops
If you’re that type of person who’s seeking adventure, living in a camper van means that adventure will find you. Traveling with a camper van has a certain level of organization which means stops and brakes are usually pre-planned.

Definitely Buy a High-Top Van
If you are deciding on what type of van you should buy, I recommend going with a high-top van as it will definitely make your daily life a much more comfortable experience especially if you are a tall person yourself. Not only that but having a high-top van means you are getting a bigger living space and that comes in handy when taking storage space into consideration, storage is number one priority and you can never get enough of it when living in a camper van so make the most out of your vertical space
Rainy Days Are Perfect for Hanging Out
Most people quite their 9 to 5 and hit the road with a camper van seeking freedom and adventure. But no matter how great your plans are, rain will eventually happen and spoil them. Now you might think that being stuck indoor will leave you feeling claustrophobic, well it turns out that rainy days can sometimes be the best days as they’ll have you all tucked up in your blanket cozy and warm.
Now living in van has its downsides also, one major drawback is the lack of constant power you normally have in your home. Now a solution for this problem is solar panels which are an expensive investment you’ll never regret, but if that isn’t an option for you there are ways to get around. One way of dealing with this problem is to make the most out of schedule stops and charge your computer, phone and other electrical devices and coffee shops, restaurants or gas stations. You can also buy a lithium battery pack which takes up to 6 hours to fully charge and use it to charge your battery appliances.
