#Vanlife is taking the world by storm, as more and more people realize the benefits to living out of a home on wheels. The ability to travel anywhere at a moment's notice and skip out on the high cost of rent or a mortgage are just a couple of the perks to living like a nomad.

When you hear the term 'power couple' you might think of career-driven individuals that live in a massive house overlooking the ocean—but is that kind of power really all that it's cracked up to be?

These #vanlife couples are the ones with all of the power, the ability to do what they want when they want without the same constraints forced on those that adhere to modern society. Check out the inspirational stories behind these 5 power couples that live out of their vans to see what we mean!


1. Victor and Eva

Once upon a time Victor and Eva lived in Barcelona before moving to San Francisco for work. They hated feeling tied to their 9 to 5 jobs, so they purchased a 2003 Dodge Ram from a carpet cleaner and the rest is history.

Ever since the two have enjoyed exploring the west coast. Victor is a software developer, which allows him to work on the road. Eva is an artist and seeks a lot of inspiration from living out on the open road.
