Living in a van, what are the pros and cons?

Expensive and shit.

He's got a point OP.

Pros are:
-you get to travel all over the place and meet new folks, try new things.
-no rent just BIG initial payment, of course fuel is a thing too, still better than rent

cons:
-shit hygiene/living conditions
-will have to revert to indian lifestyle and find some designated shittig streets/beaches/shrubs
>>
>>1059423
This sums it up, not much more to be said about it

Pros come down to:
*freedom*
*interesting experiences*
*overall low cost of living*

Cons
*Loser-ish lifestyle*
*Likely lack of cleanliness after a while*
*Lack of real 1st world comfort*

Fuel is stupid cheap right now. Like, unsustainably cheap. Vandwelling for travel is totally a good idea to do now while you still can.

Interestingly you can always swift streets/parks/beaches if you're surrounded by noise or unsavoury individuals. You can't do that if you're tied to a lease. Think about it, you can live in the nicest areas of any city if you have light-proof curtains.

Fuel is cheap right now and that is why vans and trucks are selling great. When fuel gets more expensive sales will drop. Here in Europe we pay 6$/gallon (converted from euro/liter)

The poilce will still catch on.

pros
no rent
no electric bill
no heating bill

cons
no gf
no kitchen

it's only worth it if living in NY or SF due to high rent

Do you happen to work as a clown on a fair?

Well you cant bring a women back to a van. Internet access is sketchy. If you take a systems approach and get a gym membership for showers thats not too bad (youll be more inclined to work out once yourr already their) , youll have to get clever about keeping clothes and food seperate - like anything you cook will stink ip the place and you probably dont want t smell like cabbage (unless youre profession is carnie)
