REVIEW: Living OUT of your van in a Clam Pop-Up Shelter


In today’s video we look at the Clam Pop-Up shelter as an extension of a nomad’s living space. Cars, Vans and even some RVs are so small that to be truly comfortable you need to be able to get outside and yet be out of the way of bugs and heat. A screened in gazebo-like shelter is perfect for that but most of them are so difficult to set up and take down that for me they aren’t worth the hassle and the space they take up. But that was before I was introduced to the Clam. It is so fast and easy to set up that problem has become a non-issue. Plus, I really enjoy working inside it. It has plenty of light but it’s not hot and I can see my computer screen just fine. In every way, I find it very comfortable. I highly recommend the Clam!
