These people don't use their vans for traveling so much as a place to live. Does your documentary look into the lives of those that stay more stationary in their vans and use them more like apartments and less like traveling homes?

We have two eurovans. One is a bit beat up and nearing the end of its life, but we haven't had the heart to send it for scrap yet. We love it so much we bought a second one.
I've been thinking of taking one of these vans and refitting it for travel. I would love to be able to go places for classes but travel makes things too expensive. It would be good practice for me to live with less stuff. I'm thinking it would also make a good place to sleep after an earthquake because I doubt the house will still be standing.
Looking at some of the new ideas that are coming out for electric vehicles, I wonder... I have this crazy dream of transforming the old van once it finally dies. The body is still good as they don't salt the roads here. Could it be transformed into an electric vehicle? Or maybe there are better options for it?
I'm looking forward to seeing the film and getting some good ideas.
