As the tiny house movement rages on, more and more people are reevaluating their living situation to decide if downsizing might be for them. Living tiny may not be for everyone, but to those it speaks to? The possibilities are endless. Enter: #VanLife.

While creating a home out of your van or camper is not a particularly new thing — see: the Volkswagon Vanagon community — it’s definitely taken on a life of its own recently, with a growing number of young people trading in homeownership for the mobility of living where you park. And this new generation of homeowners on wheels are also upping the ante with serious creativity and design elements in their ultra-tiny living quarters.

Check out some of the most inspiring examples of #VanLife, as seen on Instagram.
