Home is where RV is

Australia is a land of immense contrast and diversity. It is one of the world’s largest countries and yet has a population of only 24 million people. The outback is a vast and empty land, while the coastline is home to some of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities on the planet. This contrast makes Australia a unique and fascinating destination, and one that can be easily explored in an RV.

A Campervan can be a great way to travel and see the country. It can also be a great way to live, if you downsize and simplify your life. Here are some tips on how to live in a campervan and make it your home.

How to Live in a Campervan: Tips and Advice

Living in a campervan is fun and exciting. But it can also be challenging. Here are some tips on how to live in a campervan, so your experience will be as good as possible. Living in a Campervan Is more than just driving and finding a great spot to halt. It’s also about having fun and meeting a lot of new people. And it’s about being open to challenges. You can turn your campervan into a place that people want to be around. A lot of people are turning their vans into fully livable spaces by ergonomically placing all their essentials.

It is a good idea to make your van as comfortable and personalised as possible. You’ll probably be spending a lot of time in your van, so you want it to be functional and easy to clean. There are a few things that we recommend you to start off with:

1. Get a portable solar panel with storage batteries. It will run your lights, laptop, and any other electronics you have.

2. Get a solar-powered vent fan to keep the air circulating in your van. They are cheap and they do a great job of keeping the air flowing inside.

3. Get a good mattress to sleep on.

4. Get an inverter to connect your electronics to the battery.

5. Add some great interior fit-outs according to the internal dimensions of your van. Throw in some decor pieces (remember they need to be fixed in place as you don’t want them moving around), put up a nice wallpaper and get some small plants or creepers to liven up the space! 

Lastly, ensure that you add a lot of personal touches to your van. Whether you live in it for a long or short time, make sure you set it up with all your essentials! Try and write down all the things you need in your daily life from the time you wake up till you hit the bed and plan on how you can add these things into your van.

RV living is dream come true for many and is an extremely unique experience to explore this beautiful land so good luck and remember to have fun!
