MONTHLY VAN LIFE EXPENSES vs. CITY LIVING COSTS | Is Van Life Cheaper Than Renting? (2020)

If you're wondering how much van life costs, how much vanlifers save or if you can afford van life - we go through a breakdown of our monthly expenses in this video. Hopefully you'll be able to gather if van life is more expensive or cheaper than living in an apartment / paying rent in the city.
