When it comes to stealth camping in a van, you want to draw as little attention to yourself as possible. One way to do that is by arriving at your designated parking spot early while there are plenty of cars and people on the street.
Before you arrive at a camping spot, try to get everything done including dinner, dishes, bathroom needs, etc. The less you move around once you get to a location, the less attention you’ll draw to yourself.
As a rule of thumb, when stealth camping we never stay in the same spot for longer than a day or two.After a couple of days, your van is sure to attract someone’s attention so it’s best to rotate your camping spots.
