Stepping into the Van Life

Stepping into the Van Life

Have you heard of the new adventure craze? It’s called #vanlife – and though you may not be living it, these camper vans turn your traditional camping trip into something even more extraordinary!

Here are the top 3 things to know when stepping into the van life.


– 1. Pick the Right Van –

There are a number of camper van companies all throughout the states – my top pick has got to be Boho Camper Vans located in Phoenix, AZ.

What makes Boho different from the others is the unique character of each van in the fleet.

From the clever names to the individualized bohemian decor, each van is absolutely Instagram friendly and filled with a photogenic atmosphere.


– 2. Properly Prepare –

Supplied with a cushy memory foam mattress, built-in kitchen and an outdoor shower, these Boho camper vans are equipped for essentially anything!

Remember, now that you aren’t camping, you have more space for the finer things; a bigger speaker for music by the campfire, laptop for downloaded movies, power outlet for your electronics, and more!

An awesome feature on Boho’s Joplin van is the massive solar panel on the roof. This allows you to power and recharge all of your electronics without draining the van battery.


– 3. Plan Your Meals –

The best part about taking a camper van with you is having access to a stove, dish ware, kitchenette and running water.

The basic question now is, “What do you want to make?”.

A few of my top picks for our trip were simple yet delicious meals. Such as our famous Haystacks (taco salads); Bush chili beans, ground turkey, romaine lettuce, diced tomato, cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa and Fritos. Bon appetite!

With any meal you make, be sure to bring:

  • Cooking oil
  • Seasonings: Lawry’s Salt, pepper, etc.
  • Tupperware for leftovers

Take foods that are easy to store, don’t spoil quickly and are no sweat to make.
