Video of the Week: Van Life is Overrated

van life is overrated youtube still frame

Is #vanlife overrated? Jake Frew brings up some great points about living life on the road, be it in a campervan, trailer, or another vehicle like a Subaru hatchback.

In my own experience, down-sizing my belongings and moving into a campervan with my partner was a wonderful experience. But just like conventional life, you will always encounter challenges, and we experienced many during our three years on the road. From breakdowns to freezing weather, to figuring out how to maintain an income while traveling.

If you’ve ever considered hitting the road full-time, this is a great video worth watching before you take the plunge.

Matt is a paragliding pilot and adventure seeker living full-time in a 25-foot Airstream travel trailer pulled by a Ram 2500. His love of the outdoors has driven him to explore remote destinations across North and South America in search of the most aesthetic peaks and beautiful flying sites. IG: @m.b.swartz
