Clown car

How hard is it living in a cargo van? Not that hard if you can make do without a bathroom and kitchen. And super easy compared to living in a Geo Tracker, like Dave does. He used to tow the Tracker behind a 30-foot RV, but decided to do a radical downsizing.

Not shown: solar panel, batteries and a bicycle

How is it even possible? Well, there's a hitch-mounted rack on the back and a cargo box on top. Everything packs away like magic, including his 6' 2" self. Dave says he wants to get a tent for when the weather warms up. I hope it's a large one.


  1. WOW!! Talk about DOWNsizing-----yeesh!!

  2. I think he's one smart dude. Simple and can go anywhere.

  3. I've been living out of my Pontiac Vibe since I sold my Class C. I love the idea of the shelf! Definitely going to be using that.

    And yes, I have a tent for extended stays.

  4. After 4 years, I'm still using the geo tracker for boondocking. In '98 I started with a "Class C" motorhome, In '06 I moved into a "Class A" motorhome. In 2012 I decided to go small with a "Class clown" vehicle.
