Nice To Meet You.


Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

  1. I have a pair that for now I use when the van is sitting for a few weeks. Screen closed door propped, Max fan on with battery tender on. keeps air from getting too hot and stagnant.

  2. How does this compare to the floor vents you installed? I will not be living out of my van permanently and am looking for excuses not to install a floor vent. This is partly because I am ready to install my floor and I don’t know where I would want to put one. Do you have problems with bugs when using the thingy?
