Van Talks – Episode 1: What is Vanlife and Why Should I Care

In this episode we discuss “What is vanlife and why should I care?” Our guests for this episode were Austin and Janna Jenkins and Mars and Ash Fite (both participants’ info is listed below). The discussion turned out super entertaining and informative and we had many different perspectives (from the family, couple and single vanlifer’s point of views).

Some of the topics we discussed were how we all got into vanlife, what are some of the challenges (and also favorite parts) of life on the road, how does everyone make a living, a typical day in the life of a vanlifer, advice for new vanlifers, and much much more.

Special Thanks to the panel guests from this episode:
