Best Portable water heater & showers for Van Life

Instant Portable Hot Water

Having hot running water and a hot shower can make your Van Life a lot more enjoyable. Some van conversions don’t have running water, or they may not have hot running water.

There is no reason to drudge through van life like that. There are many options to provide you with one of life’s necessities. Great if you live in your van full time!

Below are some portable water heater options to supply you with both hot water and a shower! The portable option has added benefit over standard plumbing.  You can cook and clean inside or outside your Van or RV.

If you built your conversion van or bought a used Conversion van and it didn’t have a kitchen a portable water heater would be a great solution for you. You can make your hot coffee or oatmeal in the morning, wash the dishes and take a shower with one unit. I love the equipment that has multi uses! One thing to store that takes care of any task.
