Camper vans have allowed us humans to travel the world with greater ease and comfort than ever before. Families, young lovers, solo travellers; just about anyone can find a home on four wheels. With a little imagination and ingenuity even the most dilapidated vehicle can take you to the ends of the earth and back again. To some they offer permanent homes, to others they are the perfect way to escape on the weekend. Camper vans come in many shapes and sizes. With interior's as diverse as the people that inhabit them, there is no wonder we love them so much.

From the fringes of society to the envy-inducing images on social media, how and why has vanlife become more popular than ever before? What does this tell us about our love of travel and our ideas of home? And how do camper vans encompass issues of minimalism, freedom and sustainability?

The creators of The Rolling Home Journal bring you The Culture of Vanlife, including thought-provoking essays, interviews, illustrations and photography. Learn the basics of compact interior design, follow van conversions, and lose yourself in personal accounts of inspiring road trips. Explore the culture, vehicles, people, places and future of vanlife.

After years of travelling around Europe in their camper, Calum Creasey and Lauren Smith decided to combine their love for design with their passion for adventure. The result: The Rolling Home, a website, Instagram account, and quarterly journal. Their first book, The Rolling Home: 80000 Miles and Counting in a Selfbuild Home (2015), sold tens of thousands of copies in two editions.
