Nearly 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every SINGLE day.
And every single minute of every single day, almost 300 hours of video are uploaded to the platform. The beauty of video is the amount of information it provides, more than a single image or audio clip. It’s a combination of all the ways you can learn about something, rolled up into one. This is one of the many reasons we put together a supplemental list of the best vanlife YouTubers out there, in conjunction with our original 10 favorites. Check out 8 (more) vanlife YouTubers you need to be following!
“What’s up guys, I’m Jarrod! I’m a content creator, a comedian, and one of those crazy people who decided to live in a self-built van that’s become my tiny home on wheels for the last two and a half years. If someone asked me in one word what I wanted to do in this world it would be to “inspire.” To inspire those that feel uninspired. Whether that is making someone laugh through my comedy, providing help to people wanting to live life in this same minimalistic way or just to stretch people’s perspective to go after whatever it is they want no matter how crazy it may seem. That is my mission. That is why I am here, for you. Jump on the train, or shall I say in the van, and come on some adventures with me! Watch my adventures and follow along, or with my blog or social media. Watch out though, you may just get a little inspired to do something a little crazy.”
Trent and Allie
“We’re Trent and Allie (and Frank the dog), a couple of DIY’ers who spent 3 years traveling around in a van before we decided to buy some land and start building our own little home in the mountains! Come along for the ride to see how much of a struggle it can be to build your own house in some crazy conditions.”
“The open road is always calling, and where I feel most at home ↟ Outdoor Adventure & Travel Photographer living full-time on the road for 2+ years #vanlife. For the past five years, I’ve been fortunate to work as a full-time creative while based on the west coast & also overseas. A year and a half ago, I decided once again to chase after my dream of living on the road. As an experiment, I lived out of my 4×4 Nissan Xterra for a summer (you can read about it here). A few months turned into thirteen months, and I finally decided to buy a van and build it out for long-term travel. These days, I’m traveling and creating full-time; seeking out wild spaces in my van or boarding planes to far-off places. Maybe one day I’ll see you out on that open road.”

Max and Occy
“G’day & welcome! I’m Max & the furry (*furrier) one is Occy. He’s an Aussie Shepherd and my best mate. I picked up Occy when he was just 8 weeks old in a little town in southern Australia. 9 years on and we are still (almost) inseparable. We like to adventure together and our preferred method is by road. Or by van on road to be exact. After recently finishing a journey that took 2 years and had us overlanding from Canada to the base of South America (15 countries in total) in our DIY camper, we have decided it’s time to head home. This new channel is here to document and share our adventures as we live and explore Australia in our soon to be completed new van. We would love for you to join us & share the highs and lows, epic landscapes, and meet the locals as we set out to explore more of this wonderful country. For in-between the videos follow our Instagram @max_bids. Hope to see you on the road!”
Tiny Home Tours
“This channel is dedicated to sharing the dwellings of those who choose to live in tiny homes. This ranges from tiny homes, shipping containers, and vans among other structures!” While this channel isn’t specifically about one single vanlifer on the road, it is a great way to learn about different styles of road travel and the people who live this lifestyle!
