Most people probably envision a cargo van or conversion van when they think of someone living out of a camper van. While those may be the most popular options, a growing number of people are opting to go smaller. Minivans can work well as campers, provided you are a minimalist and travel lightly.

This video tour shows my minivan camper setup. The van is a 2003 Chrysler Town & Country. The best part about using a minivan as a camper? The gas mileage! I am able to average between 25-28 mpg with this minivan. The other great thing about minivan campers is that it is easy to stealth camp because it just looks like a passenger vehicle.
