Van/Westfalia life checklist

I'm not a van-lifer. I'm not even a very good blogger, you'll notice my last post was... waaaaaaaaaay to long ago. However, I love the idea of blogging and the idea of van life (in theory). So for anyone who is actually going to make this a reality, I've created a quick checklist.

Getting a Van

  • Buy a van
  • Get the title and bill of sale
  • Get the van checked out by a reputable mechanic
  • Get the tires checked, rotated, and maybe even replaced
  • Register/title transfer the vehicle within 30 days of the purchase
  • Clean the van
