Christian went to Oshkosh North High School in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. She loved art and did lots of writing at school. Christian had mentioned once,

I did not have a proper living. But, it was my reading that made my life in the future. Not only were the living, but several more ambitions brought into my attention by the school where I studied

What is Christian Schaffer Van?

The vehicle used by the Youtuber is a 2008 Nissan Xterra SUV. She decided to live on wheels in 2018, and the car was the option she could have taken. She had to expend $30,000 for the vehicle upgrades, and she also made plans for that. Since the vehicle she used was a reconditioned one, Christian preferred a brand-new vehicle.

In 2019, Christian purchased a brand new Ram ProMaster 1500 High Roof vehicle along with all the accessories. She converted it with eco features and turned it into b powered up by Solar Power. Her all Youtubing tasks, photography career, and social media are conducted using solar power. Not only that, cooking, heating, and every activity except traveling are powered by solar power.

The life on this vehicle along with Solar power has been less expensive than living in an apartment. When it comes to the freedom, I enjoy, living on wheels has been the best thing to have happened in my life.
