These are some essential items I personally would recommend having in your Van when you are in the process of building and living on the road full time!! 🙂 Each item is linked to the one I myself bought to better be of service to you!!

Window Covers – Specifically, the rear windows on the back doors, this is good for both privacy and insulation 🙂 I made my own, I didn’t document this process as Momma G was on a time crunch but use Youtube, there are tons of videos!

Car Battery Booster – I cannot tell you how many times this has come in handy with my previous vehicles, not to mention others whom I noticed needed a boost! I was able to come to the rescue 🙂 Worth the purchase! 
** Update on this if you own a Ford Transit 2020, the cables that come with this Booster will not reach positive & Negative **Learnt the hard way 🙊

Check out this video to be shown HOW to boost your transit!

Heater – More importantly if you live in a much colder climate. Click here to learn more and why I chose the one I have in my Van!

Fridge – Much needed if you plan to live full time or even go on trips over a long weekend or more! Click here to see which one I have and which ones I highly recommend! 

Flashlight – Self-explanatory? Maybe. But it’s those little things you accidentally forget to bring and more than one of them! Highly recommend getting yourself the best quality flashlight!

Safety – SO important whether you are traveling alone or with another! Always having some Self-protection on board, you never know what will come your way when you are out and about! I recommend having on board anything that you’re comfortable using if any emergencies were to happen, know where they are, and keep them to yourself 🙂 

iBuddy Dog Seat Belt  Because safety for your copilot is just as important as yours [if not more in my eyes]. This pack of two is perfect for traveling any distance and can be adjusted for your tops size! Highly recommend attaching it to a harness not a collar around the neck.

Portable Charger Recommend having one of these more so if you are not in your Van, maybe you are hiking? There have been many times where I’ve reached the end of a Submit and my phone is at 3%! Which can be scary if you don’t 100% know how to find the Vehicle you came in! Haha

Tire Traction Boards – Another recommendation if you live in a colder, wintery climate OR if you plan to travel where there is a lot of Mud/Sand! I have seen these work in all different scenarios!

A Shovel – Maybe self-explanatory? BUT in this case, I’m referring to this for the use of needing to do your business 💩  Of course it’s always a need for many other things too 🙂 

Fire Extinguishing Spray – I never knew something like this existed until I entered VanLife Living, so sharing for you is a much have!! 🙂

Find My Friends Phone App – This was/is essential for me so a few loved ones can keep an eye on my location whenever they wish! It’s important you have one or two (or three) people knowing where you are at all times! 🙂
