Living in a Four Wheel Camper – the Perfect Vehicle for Full Time Vanlife – Vanclan

Choosing to pursue alternative living by living in a van is a big step; it means breaking away from the crowd and doing something unconventional. But, living off the grid in a tiny home can bring so much freedom and joy, if done right. Van life costs are lower than the price of living in a house; there are fewer bills to pay which means you have more money to enjoy life and to go on adventures, whether that means more travelling in a van or staying static while chasing your dream job. But to be happy living in your off grid home you need to choose the right compact camper for you. So today, we’re going to look at what it’s like living in a Four Wheel Camper. 

With so many different vans out there to choose from, it’s challenging to know what will make the best tiny house, and the answer will be different for everyone. To work out what is going to be best for you, you first need to look at your needs. How much space do you need, are you planning to drive off road, do you need to have solar electrics or will you be able to plug into the grid, will you be stealth camping or boondocking, and what items are your van life essentials. By answering these questions, you’ll be one step closer to discovering what is best for you. 

Living In A Four Wheel Camper

Something that ticks a lot of boxes for me is living in a Four Wheel Camper; these pop up campers are surprisingly spacious and can be customised to suit your specific needs. Initially, I wouldn’t have thought of living full time in a pop top camper, but after testing one out for two weeks, I’m a complete convert. Read on if you want to know what it is like living full-time in a Four Wheel Camper.

Four Wheel Campers have many different models, all of which could be turned into the perfect space for full-time truck life, but today we’re going to be looking at the model we tried and tested on our Californian road trip: The Hawk Flat Bed Model. The most significant difference between the Hawk Flat Bed Model and most of the other Four Wheel Campers is that, as the name suggests, this camper requires a flat bed to be fitted to your truck before the camper is installed. This does come at an extra cost but, if you’re going to be living in a Four Wheel Camper full time, the extra space it provides is priceless.
