Hey y’all! I’m really interested in buying a mini camper van. A lot of the bloggers and people I’ve been watching paid like less than 3,000 for their used vans, and that’s the price range I’m most comfortable in. I really want a van that has a high top so I can stand in it and something with high mpg would be super great! Also I do plan in living in it full-time, and I’m open to converting it myself.
I guess what I’m asking is if this is possible? I’ve been looking for a week and I haven’t found anything that comes close to what I’m looking for. Am I being reasonable? Should I be saving more? Also are there any specific makes and models I should be looking at? I really don’t know much about cars, and trying to search for them is really confusing.
I’d love to hear from someone who knows what they’re doing!
EDIT: Wow! Okay before you comment please do not comment something if youre trying to talk me out of living in a van. Yes I know the risks, and yes I lmow all of your concerns are valid, however it is my life I’m not asking for you to input your opinion on whether or not I should live in a van. Just on which makes and models I should look at and realistically how much I should save. Some of you have answered accordingly and I thank you for that. But the next comment that says something like just move into an apartment I’m just honna delete! Apartments in my area are expensive! Which is why I want to live in a van. (Not that it’s any of your business haha)
So thank you to those who have given me great advice to everyone else, I know where I can legally park my van\car, I know that as a woman there are things I need to watch out for (but not be afraid of, there’s a difference), and I know I need to save my money in order to do this. So thanks for your advice but it’s not needed! (Unless its about what makes/models I should look at, and about any personal experiences.)
