5 Essential items for Van Life living

When I started Van Life living about 3 years ago, out of my Toyota Hiace and now my motorhome, I had spent many years and dollars working out what is essential to me for van life living and the thing I might need. It took me a long time to work out what I really needed to be comfortable and make life easy. I found I really did not need a lot, to many gadgets = clutter and space is your enemy. The items listed are the things that make Van Life easier and more comfortable, not the obvious items, you can work that out for your own need, each person being different.
