Van camping is not quite like an RV, but it is better than tent camping. It is cheap when compared to RV camping.
The only thing you need for comfortable van camping is an organized system to make the space inside the van livable. Bring only the things that can be used during the trip. Use plastic storage tubs to keep the things in it and to keep the space open.
Plastic tubs are helpful to stack the things nicely and they can also be kept on the roof during nights for more livable space. They are also rainproof.
Don’t leave your van running while sleeping because carbon monoxide poisoning is very harmful. Also, cooking the meal heats up your van, so don’t leave the stove burned while sleeping.
Advantages of van camping:
