Van Life

How do you get all your toys,  I mean gear,  in your van,  & you too!! I don't want to pull a trailer yet as I would be pulling it All the time!! Even to work as I often go straight from work to the river or park or whatever... & how do you keep your damp gear from making your van home smell like wet gear all season?

Seems a true-ism you'll have more stuff than space.  I'm vanning in a 27.1 ft. RV, and still can't get all my stuff in it!

Depends on the toys. Backpacks stow easily under the bed. I added a front receiver hitch, so I can have bikes on the front and other (motorcycles, bikes, platform, etc...) on the back. The roof is a great place to store stuff, just know your height.
