I’ve always been interested in just getting an RV and traveling across the US with my kids.  The only thing that has really stopped me from doing this is the cost.  Let’s face it, RVs are NOT cheap.  If you have a large family like I do, you might think you need a huge RV to be able to travel comfortably, but that’s really not the case.  I got a copy of Vanabode to review because I was really interested in how you could possibly travel for $20 a day.  

The Vanabode e-book contains a ton of valuable information.  To begin with, you don’t have to have a huge amount of money to start off on this venture.  You can trade in your current vehicle for a nice, habitable van.  Don’t think that having kids will keep you from Vanaboding!  You can make things work, even around car seats, with a little hard work and organization.  You can check out a free copy of the audiobook!

Worried about money?  There are so many ways to make money while on the road.  Even if you don’t have a laptop, you can find ways to make money and Vanabode tells you exactly how to go about it!  The cost of living is explained and it tells you how to budget your money.  If you have children, of course, it may be more than $20 a day.  Also, if you are a single mom of one child or a couple with grown children, it may cost less than $20 a day.  It depends a lot on how much you move around or stay in one area.

There are many ways that a person or family would choose Vanaboding.  The reason that appeals most to me is to get out of debt.  While you would likely have to give up your day job, you can find a new way to make money.  What you’re giving up (rent, electric, water, HOA fees, property taxes, etc) will allow you to save more and put the money you do make towards enjoying life and paying off your debt.  That house that you rent or have bought that costs you thousands or even hundred of thousands over your lifetime keeps you in a box.  You’re not really living, but sleeping in an over-sized, overpriced box.  

Vanabode touches on all of the concerns that one might have such as safety and security to personal hygiene and an inventory of all the items you will likely need.  “Living” in a van doesn’t mean you have to be a dirty, smelly hippy.  You can be a fresh and clean hippy that really LIVES and sees the world.  What is stopping you??

I am a Crunchy Mama of 5 rowdy boys, stepmama to 1 girl and have another sweet girl on the way! I also gave birth to a baby girl in January 2016 for an awesome couple as their surrogate. I married my awesome husband, Brian in October 2016 and we are located in a little city outside of Dallas, Texas. I am a jill-of-many-trades. I run a laundry service, do custom sewing and even sell lactation cookies to my locals. I love to shop at thrift stores, take showers without an audience and spend time dreaming of a life off the grid!

  1. This is actually something my husband and I would love to do. We are very interested in getting a small RV and living in it. I’m thinking that we would like to go and stay in a place for a month or two at a time and then move on, so we can get a real feel for the place. Since it is just the two of us, I think it’d be relatively easy for us to do. :) First place we’d travel is depending on the time of year, of course, but I think we’d like to hit up Oregon. :)
