#Vanlife is everywhere right now. Perhaps it’s because we’ve undertaken our own renovation projects, or just because we’re longing for a more nomadic lifestyle.
Reading about throwing the rat race away and heading on the road and actually doing it, though, are two different things. But what if you had a tropical-themed van at your disposal? Would that give you the push you need?
A new competition as part of Vita Coco’s Impossible to Hate campaign is giving people the opportunity to live in their very own refurbished van for a year, working or playing from wherever they power down the engine.
The state-of-the-art camper has been designed to create the perfect mobile office, fully loaded with the latest tech (super-fast wifi to ensure no awkward Zoom mishaps), a fridge fully stocked with a year’s supply of Vita Coco Pressed coconut water, and relaxing decor.
Inside is a fully equipped sleeping area, kitchen, bathroom and workspace, second screen, TV, home cinema projection system, surfboard, paddleboard, and even a portable herb garden.
The idea is to combine staycationing with your ‘hated’ commitments like work, so as soon as you log off for the day you can enjoy the world around you.
The beaches of Cornwall might be your first stop, or you could head to the Highlands for a taste of Scottish wilderness.
#Vanlife advocate Tash Carlisle, who has travelled the country in hers, says: ‘Living in a van may seem crazy to many, but really it allows the spontaneity to explore the outdoors and save a lot of money, whilst still having the ability to live comfortably and earn an income from working on the road.
‘Van life has given me the chance to discover a lot of the country that would have taken me years to have reached and something that I would have usually had to have saved up for.
‘The fact that one day I can choose to wake up and work by a stunning lake in the Lake District, a peaceful forest amongst nature in the Peaks or even a mountainside in Wales makes van life an absolute dream.’
To apply, you need to be 25 or above and have held your driving license for three years. Vita Coco is asking hopefuls to record a short video explaining how they would use the van to make their work Impossible to Hate.
