Stealth camping can be a great way to save money and experience nature in a unique way.

Here are 12 tips for stealth camping in a fleet van

  1. Choose a van that is inconspicuous – A fleet van or a cargo van can blend in better than a camper or RV.
  2. Avoid parking in busy areas
    – Look for quiet streets or secluded parking lots away from prying eyes.
  3. Cover your windows
    – Use window covers or curtains to prevent light from escaping and drawing attention to your vehicle.
  4. Be mindful of your noise level
    – Keep noise to a minimum and avoid playing loud music or watching TV with the volume up.
  5. Keep your van clean
    – A clean van can help avoid suspicion and prevent any unwanted attention.
  6. Use solar power
    – Install solar panels on your roof to power your lights and charge your devices without needing to run a generator.
  7. Use a camping toilet
    – This will save you from having to find public restrooms or facilities.
  8. Bring a portable shower
    – Some campers opt for a portable shower to keep clean while on the road.
  9. Be aware of your surroundings
    – If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, move to a different location.
  10. Park away from other vehicles
    – Try to park in areas where you won’t be noticed, and park away from other vehicles to avoid suspicion.
  11. Be respectful of the environment
    – Pack out all trash and follow Leave No Trace principles to avoid attracting wildlife or damaging the environment.
  12. Have a backup plan
    – Always have a backup plan in case your initial location doesn’t work out or you need to relocate quickly.
