Working all day on a computer is handy, but I can only really get this stuff out of my head by putting pen to paper.... This my be the start of the next stage of CampervanCulture.com and where we end up at.. stay tuned.
It’s the first 80°F day in Arizona, so we decided to get out onto the water! Mateo’s first day of paddle boarding was a success!

This camper has enabled us to see some incredible places the past two years. We've decided it's time to sell her and pursue the next adventure.
🚨 Referral Fee Alert 🚨 If you know of anyone that may be interested, please tag them on this post. If a person you tag ends up buying we'd like to give you a $500 referral fee.
If you're interested and would like additional photos and information, DM me and I will share a link to our craigslist posting. We're asking 💵$16,500 and price is negotiable.
Here is an excerpt from our listing: .
This hard-sided pop-up unit has it all: Refrigerator, sink, water heater, AC/heat combo, microwave, 2 burner stove, cassette toilet and inside shower, fantastic fan/vent, solar panel for off grid living, double propane tanks, 12v battery, am/fm built in radio, inside and outside speakers with outside mood lights, outside grill, outside shower, outside storage solution, lift assist/high wind bars, double hard-sided dormers for extra space inside, lots of windows, lots of headroom, trailer brakes, an anti-sway bar, and off road axel. All this in a package that weighs under 2000 lbs dry. New campers don't come with everything you need. This camper comes with all the extra's needed to pull away and go camping!
My wife and I bought this camper new in 2018. I installed a solar panel system for off grid living and we hit the road. Our season of RV travel has come to an end and we are ready to pass this camper on to the next owners. This camper has been loved and taken care both when in use and when sitting. Battery has been maintained and plugged in to power when not in use, we have a dehumidifier running to keep the camper nice and dry, it's been winterized each season, and we check on it frequently - it's on a concrete pad in our backyard. There are no known issues with this camper. Price is negotiable, but I think you'll find this is a great deal for a 2018 in excellent condition.

Campers, where are you planning your next adventure?
We’ve only gone and built a door..that works! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Building the door was a first for the both of us, and a bit of a daunting task. But like much of the work, we’ve found you just have to get stuck in and go for it! 🏃♂️
Similar to the camper body we’ve built, the door is framed with steel box section, and skinned with aluminium sheet. The edges are capped with aluminium capping to give a nice finish. Will has welded the hinges in, and the door was hung with super strong bolts. 💪 .
With good security becoming more of a necessity for campers now, we’ve started with some quality locking systems in this door. We’ll add further security features along the way 🔐
Pretty pleased with this. So much excitement over a door 😂 But it actually works as it should, and it’s a bit of a milestone for us. Our little home has a front door 🏠👌🏼
Unter dem Unterbodenschutz versteckten sich dann doch ein paar große und kleine Löcher. Jetzt liegt er erstmal gut konserviert, abgedeckt und richtig rum auf Böcken bis es ans schweißen gehen kann. Wenn das geschafft ist kommt Chassislack vom Korrisionsschutz Depo drauf.. so zumindest der Plan 😅 🚌 1991 VW T3 Caravelle with Westfalia Top

With a job that keeps them on the road, this adventurous couple needed a comfortable place to relax & eat and easily accessible storage options for their gear. We worked with them to create a dependable space to call home.
A happy van is one filled full of adventure toys! Check out this build from @tourig. #repost

Soon, there won’t be so much space for activities. We’re starting to frame out the rooms today! 🎉

So after they send us away from the beach, we all went back to the place where @dylanmagaster interviewed us the day before. Looking forward to all the videos, 'cause these vans are just too beautiful! But you know what? The people we've spend the last days with are even more beautiful😍 We've enjoyed this time so much! Always a special feeling to share life together like this! 🌸
Ніколи не ставайте в Фінляндії на аварійку❗️
Я чула колись про те, що цього не можна робити, але щоб відчути на собі😅 Якщо проїжджаючі бачать машину на аварійці, то зупиняться запитатись чи щось сталось або одразу викличуть поліцію. Ми стали, щоб сфоткати сяйво, по звичці включили аварійку. Не прийшло й 1 хвилини, як зупинилась перша ж машина, яка проїжджала😱. Вийшли, запитатись чи все ок і чи не потрібна допомога🙂
В таких випадках потрібно включати правий поворот🔦
Цікавий факт: вони не мають поняття ближнє і дальнє світло фар. Напевно по замовчуванню стоять дальні, при чому настільки сильні, що відчуття, ніби там прожектори стоять замість фар💡 Щоб вони перестали сліпити нас, то треба щоб почало сліпити їх, іншого виходу нема🤷🏽♀️.
А ще на шинах у них є спеціальні шипи, які допомагають при їзді на льоду. Шоком була швидкість їхнього пересування😱 Слизько так, що машину зносить з траси, а вони 100+ км/год летять🏎. Львів просто стоїть в таку погоду😅
Are you a coffee or a tea drinker?
Sam’s British roots prohibit him from ever turning down a good brew so he’ll always opt for the tea. Lately we’ve been getting a little whimsical and trying a different kind of tea every time we buy groceries. Yogi’s “Sweet Tangerine” with a dash of honey in the morning 👌🏼
What’s your morning go to?
Real talk here by Celest. Part 1
I’m an Enneagram 7w6 if you know what that is. I’m an extrovert. I’m an ENFP campaigner. I’m a questioner. I’m a renaissance woman. .
There’s a theme with all of these...I’m ALL over the place with my interests. I ask Why? and Why not? I have good ideas and I struggle with staying focused, even when things are REALLY important to me.
I pretty much doggy paddle through life. I still get in the water and splash around, but I’d like to be able to swim when I want to as well. (I also make a hella lot of analogies)
I have spent the last decade learning how to slow down. Close out the noise and focus on getting to know myself. Focus on figuring out what is important to me. My world shrank by necessity with my panic disorder...at least it felt necessary at the time. I had to learn to put my focus on the basic things that are really important to me.
I’ve come to a time when Jilly doesn’t need me as much. Our home being less than 400 sq ft doesn’t need me as much. And my panic disorder is gone which opens up SO much time and energy.
I don’t want to clutter my life again but I do want to accomplish some things. When I first came across #100goals on @weliveonabus I rejected the idea. That’s a lot of things to be putting back into my life. In fact I don’t even do New years Resolutions anymore because I hate when I don’t accomplish the goals. It feeds into my shame cycles and I’m all about getting rid of those these days. I use ONE word to drive my year. One. And here I was being asked to list 100 goals? Seemed like Crazy talk.
When Tina and I were DMing about how I feel like I’m all over the place she recommended the 100 goals (again) and explained how it’s everything. Small to big. And it’s constantly in flux. It helps us see where our focus wants to be as well as gives us plenty of things to choose from.
At first when she said as soon as you cross something off, you add something new to the list my brains reaction was “you mean it NEVER ends???” Nope. It’s life goals. Life keeps happening.
I hesitantly decided to give it a try. It took me over a month to come up with my list but I finally have it.

We love our product and we love our manufacturing team!
2 years ago Wes and I sat down and designed our Solar Storage Roof Box on a napkin, threw it in SketchUp and built it out of Marine plywood and mounted it on top of our old van Bella and drove it across the country to a tiny house festival.
The story behind the roof box is nothing crazy, (I Savana) just wanted to use the indoor shower and bathroom at my leisure, but the issue was our surfboards were always falling in my face. We needed to fix this issue ASAP.
So here we are now! We are thrilled to share that our Roof Box and Roof Deck is:
*Built with carbon fiber and fiberglass materials
*Walkable and rated for 750lbs
*Custom military grade solar module
*500W of power
*25 year warranty
*82”L X 54”W X 12”H
*Internal storage space to sleep in and keep you from blocking your shower and hallway with stuff!
We are currently taking orders! If your interested and have questions (pricing) please inquire through our website!
Thanks to our manufacturing team @santacruzmarine our products have become a dream come true!
My bedroom is like my security blanket on the road. While the views outside my windows are constantly changing and every day there’s a new challenge, this room is one thing that stays familiar. That stays comfortable. That stays consistent. I know at the end of the day when I crawl into bed, I can relax (and snuggle with kitties ☺️). And even those of us who choose to live this somewhat crazy, entirely unpredictable lifestyle still need a certain level of stability in order to not completely lose our minds. 💛
After a few days of sickness, I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Not mad at all about getting some fresh air and sunshine up in this van (but still praying for snow🤞🏼). What are y’all up to this week?! We have some big things coming up for you all!
