To sleep in a van, often due to a lack of money. This can be either for a single night (such as when traveling) or for extended periods of homelessness. Long-term vandivers will often park their van near a beach or community center with washrooms and showers. Some experienced vandivers will even set up heating and cooking facilities inside of their vans.
i can't afford a hotel room, so I'm going to vandive instead.
