Before purchasing “Denny”—our 4m x 2m expedition vehicle and beloved tiny home—our lives revolved around our house in Seward, Alaska and a comfortable motorhome we’d use for extended road trips and overnight stays. While we found some satisfaction with this lifestyle, we were keen to make the jump to a truck that could fulfill our shared dream of traveling the world.
After an exhausting 18-month search, we finally found the right truck, a 2007 FUSO FG140 4×4. It seemed like the perfect fit, with only one catch, it was 3,900 kilometers away in the state of Montana. So, after boxing up many of our worldly possessions, we headed south. Brimming with confidence after two years of full-time RVing, we began our #vanlife adventure, somewhat unprepared for the challenges that lay ahead.
