Our journey from living in a big house on 2 acres to downsizing, building our van rv and living in it fulltime.

Downloadable Ebook of  our story of how we downsized from a big house, and moved into a van. Some of the book is written by Cheryl, some by Tim and some the both of us so you get both points of view.  See how we built our RV, what it’s like living together in a small space, where to park at night, how we pay the bills and how people view us living our of a van.  We moved in 8-31-17 and have been living in it since then.
