What country are you based in?

New Zealand

How long have you had a van?

Around 5 months

Why did you choose your current Van?

We are originally from Scotland with no experience living in a campervan so we wanted something as comfortable as possible. A toilet and a shower were a must for us. We spent around a week looking at various vans and saw this and fell in love with it and it ticked all the boxes.

What is your favourite feature of your van?

The countertop oven we bought to replace the microwave that was there

How do you spend your time in your van?

Full time

What has been your favourite experience in your van so far?

Being able to go wherever we want whenever we want. We have parked up in some pretty incredible places.

What has been your worst experience in your van?

I wouldn’t say we have had any ‘bad’ experiences… Yet…  For me, getting used to a much smaller space than what were used to, especially in the kitchen was a massive adjustment. When I cook everything is everywhere. I have had to learn to manage that ? Scott’s was almost going off the road hitting some black ice

Describe your van kitchen setup…

We are very lucky as we have an amazing set up. We have two gas rings, a gas grill, a fridge with a tiny wee freezer, a countertop oven that you could cook pretty much anything in. We have almost all the pots, pans, cake tins you would ever want (Scott would say too much) and also a great Dutch oven for campfire cooking

What is your favourite van kitchen accessory and why?

My nutri bullet

What couldn’t you live without in your van and why?

Again, my nutri bullet. I use it all the time

Do you have any first hand funny van life stories to tell?

Scott decided to drive down a cycle path, had a fight with a low hanging branch and managed to rip one of our roof hatches off. I saw the funny side… Scott maybe not so much.
