  • Anyone else scared for them being too young with a child and living in a van ?

  • Loved the opening “sound and light show,” how fun! As always entertaining and informative. We’re all enamored with Hunter, watching her grow and watching you parent her has been a joy filled journey.

  • Are you going to come to tassie or not?

    • When you come down you should go to Myers it’s an amazing fish and chip place and you can get amazing ice cream but only get the smallest size cause it’s still really big

    • Sure am!

  • Cabinet handles in a van/camper are a recipe for disaster. The space is small and the van is rocky when moving so you're just inviting an accident. You either hit your hips on the handles of base cabinets or hit your head on the handles of upper cabinets. Push-to-open is better and looks nicer.

  • I tried the Dometic Cassette Toilet, but it was too small, too low, and too much effort to maintain, dump, clean, etc. So I purchased a Laveo Dry-Flush toilet. Check out the Laveo in your research. Best of luck.

  • I love the fold away bath. I would suggest you get a waterproof cover for Hunters seat, with it being so close to the sink. Just an easy slip on so the leather doesn't get wrecked. Other wise it's looking great.

  • Oh my gosh your music choices are amazing. and I love how excited you look turning the lights on! She definitely would be too small for a bunk bed. You'll have to put up some kind of netting like they have on trampolines so she doesn't fall out of it.

  • You could always put a net from the ceiling by hunters bed as a safety net. Could also come in handy for when she's not a sleep 'cause than you can store some of her toys and stuff there. Oh and if you had like 73 comments on this matter, just ignore this one. I havn't read all of them as you may have understood already. Love watching your channel!

  • Hi! So my name is Jordyn Davis and this might sound funny but I actually know Paul and Bec. My parents have been friends with Paul and Bec for as long as I can remember. My dad is actually from Perth and moved to Canada where we now live. I have four other siblings Jack, Macy, me, Ash, Marlee and my moms name is Mandy Davis. My mom told me about some friends Paul and Bec had that were building a van and my goal after high school is to build a van and travel but I had already found you guys before then. I thought it was super cool that you knew Paul and Bec as well so I went back to your old videos with Paul and Bec. Say hi to Paul and Bec from the Davis family for me. Love your videos!!

  • Good idea reconfiguring the safe so that you can out your laptops down in there normally. We have to put our laptop into our safe at an angle, and it's hard not to scratch it on the way in and out.
