Meet-Up With Like Minded People!

a Community of VanLifers and Travelers

There are some amazing VanLife Communities out there, and there is no longer any reason you cannot find what you are looking for, with the help of technology.

For years our team has lived as nomads, in and out of vans and other vehicles. We love travel as a means to adventure, to explore within, to seek a different way to engage with the world. We also get lonely and crave connection and belonging. We wondered if there was a way to have the best of both worlds. So we moved in with a co-living community in Portland, prototyping how to merge the two worlds. A year and a half later, we’re proud to open our first community (VanVida) in southern California.

  • We believe being in a place where you’re welcome sets your mind at ease
  • We believe having base needs in one place allow you to spend time on what you love
  • We believe community helps people come alive
  • And….we believe RV parks don’t meet the needs of the Vanlife Movement

One of the most common questions I see again, and again, in the VanLife forums and groups is, how do I meet other travelers?

Well, the best way, is while you are travelling, use location aware technology to help you locate events, gathering, and more.

2 of the best apps I have checked out for this are “RVILLAGE” and an app called “SEKR

There is no reason you should not be able to connect with others when using these apps, so no excuses! Check them out, and let us know what you think!

Both of these of course are listed on our favorite apps page. Make sure you tell others about these. It helps community grow.


Events and gatherings

There are other “Community” type events listed on the “VanLife Events” page too

Finally! A way to connect with others efficiently!
