I think youtube “van life” can show too much of a rose tinted aspect of what can be a very stressfully, strenuous, boring, expensive way to live. For those who subscribe and follow these guys, there is a ray of hope that they get a reality check before embarking. When these guys are showing the world the layout and habits of these bloggers. They sometimes show the negative side of life. Like breakdowns, vehicle breaking’s, the damage caused and the emotional stress from the loss of valuable items.
Now and then, someone will post about “contingencies” de-cluttering, raising awareness of a need for alternative/emergency accomadation eg. vehicle decamping during garage repairs, I’ll health and “the end of van life” a need to return to bricks and mortar.
More and more single/retired/divorced females get inspiration from Youtube..... that’s got to be a good thing.
Especially if they come with their own gaff on wheels
I like to watch some, to see/get ideas of the many internal vehicle designs, layouts, gadgets, approaches etc.
