Van Life Etiquette! – Do you approach the neighboring van?

We’ve all been there. Parked in a great spot, and you see a few other vans kicking around. The age old question remains: Do you know on their door and create a huge party around a campfire, or do you each quietly relax in the comfort of your own van?

I’ve often heard people talking about a solution – a sticker or magnet that lets others know if you are wanting to be approached or not, so I decided to do something about it.

I created a Van Life oval sticker, with various emoji that communicate to others that you either want others to knock and introduce themselves, or that you want your privacy. As simple as it seems, it was a surprise to me that no one had apparently taken the step to actually create something to do this.

There are people that will love the idea and those that will hate it, but I think it’s good to start somewhere. Have a better idea? Hit me up in the comments, social media, or send me an email. I’d love to hear what you have to suggest – anything that makes it easier to connect to other vanlifers is a plus in my books.
