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 🙊
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
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! 🙂
