Doc Van Life: Inspiration for Your Home on the Road I wanted to like this book more. What got under my skin is what usually gets under my skin about this topic, that this is typically a male-dominated pursuit, and van dwellers' disregard for their own privilege (financial and otherwise).Another turn-off was the general attitude that these guys are the first ones to live in vehicles: "My favorite part about owning a van is the opportunity it brings to meet new people and make memories with good friends. I've been lucky enough to meet strangers on the road that choose to live the same sort of lifestyle, strangers that I now call close friends. There's definitely a community forming around the van life culture, a bunch of dirtbags that just want to be outdoors and do rad things. Cruising around and sleeping in our vans allows us to do that." Please.Even though this book doesn't sell itself as a manual for vehicular living, I wished the interviews had contained information about how these van-dwellers make ends meet. Only a few of them contained any practical advice (eg: learn as much as you can about your vehicle and travel with spare parts).A better profile and more in-depth examination of van life can be found in Walden on Wheels by Ken Ilgunas, who spent three years scraping himself out of $32,000 of student debt and then bought a van out of which to live while he attended grad school..

  2. Others have commented on the scant number of interviews, and how the photos don t do justice to the subject I m afraid I have to agree with the dissenters, I live most of the time in a van and my desire to read about others lives on the road, and how they make living in a van works trumps my need, even, for pretty pictures Pretty pictures are indeed awesome when used the right way I wish there were hours spent in good editing and writing In the end, this is a great personal project, and kudos t [...]


  3. I picked this book up before Christmas for a bargain and have been meaning to get around to reading through it Since getting our caravan I ve been drawing from as many sources as I can for both renovating our caravan but also for outdoor living and road trips.This book is amazing and is filled with incredible jealousy inducing photography as well as inspirational stories and interviews detailing a life on the road.It ll look great on any travellers coffee table for those moments when you just wa [...]


  4. I picked this book up on a whim at the library after my husband mentioned seeing it there The pictures and scenery in this book are very pretty I can appreciate the author s passion for this lifestyle, even though it s not where I am in my life at the moment, especially if I had to constantly worry about my van home on the road breaking down all the time I wouldn t mind taking a road trip across our beautiful country sometime, but only in a reliable vehicle


  5. Like others, I wanted photos especially interior photos of the layouts and a better variety of locations the setting of Oregon s Cape Kiwanda was featured at least three times and practical information But it was fun book to peruse and it is a good companion read to Jessica Bruder s NOMADLAND, an excellent view of full time living in an RV, van, or car.


  6. I love this book I love the photos There are pictures of cool vintage vehicles and wonderful pictures of scenic landscapes Yosemite, Utah, Alaska, etc Also people sharing their experiences Thank you Giveaway for a wonderful book.


  7. This book doesn t do much than scrolling through vanlife on Instagram I am fascinated by van life, but I prefer the videos rather than still photos There are a handful of interviews and personal accounts, but the book is mostly photos.


  8. while the text is interesting various interviews with van lifers the real draw here is the photographs Everything from tiny vans in vast landscapes, to closeup of interiors and exteriors Definitely a good book to inspire wanderlust, or vanderlust in this case.


  9. Good into to Van lifeLiked several stories and how the book is well organized, I wish the pictures were properly set for reading books In general, this is a good introduction to Van life for someone that s seriously considering it.


  10. Lovely images of vans and small older model RVs in locals you d all want to visit Plus some insight to how the insides have been fitted so that a person or people can live full time or for extended trips Mostly the photography was beautiful and for a bit you can dream.





  11. Great book Amazing photos and just kind of original Would be easy to hate it but it has a certain nouveau quality that makes it inspiring and enjoyable
