Vanlife often seems like one thing from the outside, but may be totally different when you’re experiencing it firsthand.
You can read as many blogs as you want, or look at as many pictures as you want, but watching people’s real lives play out in front of you first-hand cannot be fabricated. This is one of the many reasons we love YouTube. We’ve recently been diving more into the YouTube world and are discovering how many of our favorite vanlifers have channels! So, we’ve put together a list of must-follow vanlife YouTubers. Check them out!

“Hey everyone ! We’re Julien and Karolina from the Go-Van crew. We are Canadian vanlifers that run an online magazine about van life culture. As content creators, our ”bread’n butter” would be mostly video production for tourism boards and outdoor compagnies. Last year, we spent the whole summer on our biggest projet our TV SHOW : La Belle Vie avec Go-Van. A show about alternative living ! We spent 3 months on the road with our crew filming in Québec and Ontario so many interesting lifestyles that it made us think… What’s next for Go-Van ? Our goal here with our channel is to reunite everyone that decided to live an alternative lifestyle and discuss each and everyone’s life stories. We’d love you to share your tips, tricks and adventures with us! Come and chat !”
“We help broke millennials to increase their financial IQ by documenting our experiences and producing entertaining but value-focused content on Youtube.”
“We’re Katie and Logan, a 20-something-year-old couple who lives on the road full-time. Our journeys in vanlife started separately, both becoming nomads around June 2017. Originating from opposite sides of the country (Oregon + Florida), we met in Colorado and joined forces to create the ultimate caravan. We now travel together with our 2 self-converted vans: an Econoline and a Sprinter! Follow our journey as we pursue adventure and navigate this unconventional lifestyle together.”
“Owen Chikazawa and Mary Ashley Krogh (MAK), a wife/husband team, have been living and working from the road since April 2016. As designers, illustrators, animators, and photographers their work is driven by their mobile lives. MAK & Owen are firm believers that life is too short, and this world is too beautiful to sit still. So, they took to a life on the road in search of adventure and inspiration for their work. During their travels they fill their time seeking new experiences through rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, swimming, surfing, and documenting the journey. With strong arts backgrounds, keen eyes for design and adventure, and a constant need to keep pushing the boundaries they curate and create a culmination of the beauty of the outdoors and a boundless sense of freedom.”
