Cool Resources

These are websites, books, and organizations that I have found invaluable.  I am not being paid by anyone else to endorse anything, though I am perfectly willing to sellout in a heartbeat if you send me some money.  Feel free to contact me.  lol

Vandwelling Websites
  • Cheap RV Living Forum - This is a forum for vandwellers and future vandwellers to socialize and ask others just about anything that has to do with living in a vehicle of any type.  It is owned by Bob Wells, a vandwelling advocate who also has an ebook out about this lifestyle.
  • r/vandwellers - This is a reddit subreddit dedicated to vandwelling, with a large reach of audience.   Its similar to a forum with a bit of a lose structure.  You will find more freuent updates, and lots of youtubes and builds are posted there.
  • Yahoo Vandwellers Group  -  A long standing email group about vandwelling.  There is a lot of information here, and my favorite, they have tons of pictures of conversions and ideas.  This is a mailing list style site, which I dislike, so finding the information you want can be a pain.
  • Free Campsites .Net - A very useful website created and run by vandwellers themselves.  It uses google maps technology to display free and pay campsites all over the country and beyond.  If you need a place to park for a while for free, give this site a look first.
  • Walmart Allstays - Tho they have an app, I just go to their website since it is free.  There you can find just bout every walmart listed, and it tells you if they allow overnight camping.  Like freecampsites.net, it includes reviews from other users, as the conditions at different walmarts change rapidly. 
  • Boondockers Welcome - This is a low cost membership site similar in concept to couch surfers, but its for parking space.  Members share a spot (and receive a membership discount for doing so) or ask to use someones spot for a period of time (usually a night) and in turn do the same for others. Since rvers and vandwellers, especially snowbirds, are typically away from their home for large periods of time, they have space to offer.
