I've been Vanning for some time now and love it. I did it in college towing my motor boat to the lake to camp, study, fish, and relax some, as I wasn't a Fraternity Booze & Drug Party Animal type. Had girlfriends with me on those week ends quite often, as I dated a number of those who were stuck living in the Dorm's.

Once I graduated the boat was traded for a small economy car towed with the Van for job hunting. Then on my first job, I demonstrated how I could move within a week end between division locations for short term assignments. I had built a system of nomadic furniture for this purpose. The family men shunned those assignments which proved a bountiful opportunity for me and resulted in my raises and promotions. Otherwise, I'd have been stuck in the same job in the same place for years.


I worked in Industrial Design then and now in web development. I may still hop in my Van and go find other opportunities yet.

My Van, method of thinking, and creative use of it all has proven to be a great enabler for me. Your rig could do the same for you as well.
