OUR FAVORITE VAN LIFE PRODUCTS

Van Life isn't easy every day. Here is a list of products we use daily to keep life simple.

JACKERY EXPLORER 2000 PRO

It's always a good idea to have a backup power supply. After personally testing 6 other competitors solar generators, a Jackey is by far the best in quality, power supply, and charging speed. We personally bring the Jackery Explorer 2000 Pro in the van everywhere.

THE WADERFUL WINDOW COVERS 

These are THE BEST van window covers. Lasered cut to perfection, insulated, and magnetic.

STANLEY FRENCH PRESS

We had a popular brand glass French Press in the past but after shattering it three times, we switched to this bad ass press. Double the size (4 servings), insulated, plus no glass.

INFLATABLE BOTE PADDLE BOARD
BREEZE 10'8''

Hope has used ISUPs (inflatable stand up paddle boards) for years regularly. Her first couple boards were from Amazon and did okay-ish for the price as a beginner, but after years of experience and dedication to the hobby, it was finally time to upgrade to a highest quality board you can get.

JET BOIL

Perfect for the trails and heats up water SO fast. 

STANLEY TRAVEL TUMBLER

Who doesn't want the perfect travel mug? Slick, has a straw, and even fits in car cup holders with a handle. Perfection.

REI COMPACT BIKE PUMP

Before we moved into the van we stressed where we were going to put our bike tire pump; I know, silly. Before moving in we stubbled upon this product without trying and now we can't live without it. Perfect size and solved our storage issue. 

BED SIDE LIGHTS

This mini bed side lights are the best! They're turn on by the touch, dim by touch and holding, plus they even have a USB charger at the bottom. Easy to install with no switch needed, and they're 12 volt.

SHOWER BAG FOR THE GYM

This bag is a life saver. It can hold full size bottles, plus it's water resistance so you can hang it directly on the shower rod in the gym shower.

DÉCOR PILLOW CASES

We call this one a vanlife hack. Because of the U-Shape bed design we chose, in the morning we needed a place to put our bed sheets at. We hated the idea of dedicating an entire cabinet JUST for bed sheets. Solution? We fold our bedsheets and stuff them into these decorative pillow cases in the morning, takes just 1 minute.

NOMADIX TOWELS

In our old bus, we hated having 3-4 normal bath towels; they took so much room! These Nomadix towels are light weight and dry faster than normal bath towels. Win win.

PLANET FITNESS MEMBERSHIP

Showering at planet fitness may sound horrible to some, but we promise, it's not that bad. We've actually not had terrible experiences using the shower. Most times you get the shower area to yourself anyways.

TILE TRACKERS

If you're one who is always loosing your phone, keys, or wallet, (like Manny) tile is a must. It's a lifesaver when in a pinch for just $20.

CLIQ OUTDOOR CHAIRS

We've tried cheaper knock-offs in the past but nothing compares the CLIQ chairs. The quality is unbeatable and worth the price.

PMD CLEAN PRO

Face care is important to Hope. After trying a few different face cleaner machines this one is by far the best and results showed after just one week of use. Typically paired with Clinique face soap, this face cleaner comes into Planet Fitness showers every time.
