The university of van life

Rosie bought her van for £1000 and converted it for about £2,500.

She is from the Isle of Wight, which is very closer to where I am. Here is what the Isle of Wight looks like from the south coast of the island on which I live:

Rosie goes to university on the mainland, and she used her study loan – which she apparently got as some kind of bulk payment, or with a larger payment at the start of the academic year – to buy her van and kit it out.

It saves her a ton of money on rent and she loves living in a van so much that she does not see herself ever living in a house again.

She used Ecotherm against the roof and floor and Isover on the sides of the van, for insulation. She also applied a vapour barrier, but did not mention a specific type of foil.
