Description

Last year Sam Jacquette was paying over $1100 a month in rent and working a job he didn’t enjoy to pay the bills. For his New Year’s resolution he vowed to stop doing things he didn’t enjoy so he quit his job (and found a new one with Airstream restorers HofArc), gave up his apartment and moved into his Westfalia campervan full time.

“The beauty of living in Santa Barbara outof your vehicle is that for 90 dollars a year you get a pass. It’s a waterfront pass, basically it’s my beach condo,” explains Jacquette.

His 1985 VW Westfalia (“Westy”) comes loaded with a two-burner propane stove, on-board water and sink, a refrigerator (which he’s replacing with a 12V fridge), 2 beds and tons of storage (including a mini-closet). For bathroom and showers he uses the gym.

At night Jacquette pulls into the driveway of some good family friends and pops the top of his portable home. He sometimes shares the space with his girlfriend (he has found storage space forher pilates gear). He hopes one day to upgrade to an Airstream, but for now he’s happy with minimal mobile home.
