The Van Life Freedom Author

Hello there fellow van life enthusiast. I’m Joshua.

I’ve discovered the ultimate business model for remote workers.

With this business model, I’m able to:

👉 Own my own van completely debt-free

👉 Survive for several days without wifi

👉 Create semi-passive income online

👉 Run my business from any parking lot

But hey, let’s talk about that later. Back to Alex from Hobo Ahle…

Hobo Ahle FAQs (March 2024)

Van Name

Her latest van doesn’t have a name, though she calls it a Hobo Van.


Alexandria Tejas (age 28) is from California. She is half Mexican and half Chinese.

The Van

Her current van is a 1998 Dodge Ram with a high roof. Previously she tried #vanlife in a Honda Civic but the smaller space was truly challenging.


She has upgraded her van with a raised bed, solar and laundry.

Affording It

Alexandria from Hobo Ahle worked since she was a teenager and saved up $7,000 to afford her van. She also didn’t have any student debt to look after.

Net Worth

You don’t have to be poor to live in a van.

In 2024, Hobo Ahle has a net worth of $552,000 USD.

This is based on the value of her van and online business.

Making Money

Hobo Ahle makes money through various means:

👉 Advertising on her YouTube channel

👉 Amazon affiliate links under her videos

👉 Product sponsorships from retailers

👉 Her loyal Patreon subscribers

👉 Working remotely for a travel company

It’s estimated that Hobo Ahle makes $2,700/month through her various income sources.


Alexandria hasn’t collaborated with any other #vanlife YouTubers at this stage.


Hobo Ahle’s last known whereabouts was Texas. She has been slower to upload videos and Instagram posts ever since her new boyfriend and his dog joined them on the journey.

She also lost about 27% of her viewers since she has a majority-male audience, and they ultimately don’t like the new guy in town.

Past Travels

Alexandria was one of the first YouTubers to embrace the nomadic living culture and has explored much of the United States by van. This may explain why she hasn’t been as active on social media lately.

Big Moments

Some cool moments in Alexandria’s history include:

👉 Hobo Ahle getting arrested due to illegal camping

👉 Being exposed as a fraud by several YouTubers

👉 Getting a boyfriend and leaving YouTube mostly behind

I commend her for not going down the clickbait/bikini route or selling uncensored content on OnlyFans, as we have seen with numerous other van life influencers.

Future Plans

It remains unclear what will happen now to Alexandria. She now has a boyfriend and isn’t getting near the volume of views that she previously did.

Key Lessons

What can we learn from her story? Well, it’s clear that we need to follow our dreams!


Alexandria was one of the first people to start fueling the notion of living in a van and working remotely. Over the years, she has amassed millions of views and a loyal fan base of 350,000+ subscribers.

She’s done many great things for the movement and shows that we don’t need to build an empire before living our dreams.

Working Remotely With Van Life

Hey! 😃 It’s Joshua again from Van Life Freedom.

It’s clear that she is still living the dream because she has online income.
