We traded our £1,200-a-month home for a £20-a-month van — it’s great, and we can go wherever we want.

A COUPLE has switched £1,200 a month in rent for £20 a month in a van.

Chris Buxton and Reanna Mash, both 28, paid £2,800 in lockdown for the used Mercedes Luton called “Ruby.”

They spent £10,000 installing a bathroom, kitchen, living room, and king-size bed, as well as eliminating wasp and spider infestations.

In March, they and their dog Rupert moved in.

“I was sick of paying rent to selfish landlords who never had our best interests at heart,” Chris, an ex-mechanic, said.

“Now that we own our home, we only have to pay for the heating.”

“We also have the incredible power to go to whatever location we desire.”

The pair from Exeter, Devon, is now looking to purchase property in Portugal where they can park the van and enjoy the weather.
