I was looking through some posts and realized that around a year ago I thought my van was on its absolute last leg and that I needed a new one.

Then, with under 2k my mom loaned me, I bought a car to drive around in, while still sleeping in the van at night.

If you’ve been reading a while you may remember that the darn car completely crapped out on me (transmission) within 3 months and I sold it for parts.

Well guess what?  My van is still running LIKE A CHAMP.  I’ve barely even put any money into it this year.  A couple of hundred dollars here and there.  It’s been totally worth it.  There are 211k miles on it now.  I wonder how much longer it can keep going.

PS.  Don’t tell anyone but I call my van Vinny.  I let Vinny know outloud that I appreciate his long service to me.  I think it helps him keep going.  🙂

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    Old cars and vans seem to last far longer than modern vehicles. It’s the electronic stuff that seems to break. If you drive it easy, should last quite a while.
