At the end of the day its just the new hip version of retirees and snowbirds with the 5th wheel in Florida.....one of the fundamental planning flaws is what to do in 1-5 years down the road when the new wears off. I've had several friends sell everything, including the house to live the vanlife and very quickly realize they miss their homebase, family, friends, hobbies.....life. I get it, it can be fun, exciting, adventurous, etc.....but, never give up the homebase to come back too. Cheers.
We did that about 5 years ago- Sold it all and eventually settled back down. We were getting ready to hit the road again but, well Covid. This time we have a little home base. A little cabin ( 550 sq ft) just outside town in the forest. The idea was to always have a place we can land at should we feel the need to get off the road. We spent the last 5 years making moves to be debt and mortgage free. Now we can hit the road once stuff clears up and still have a place to land.
