This is the ultimate guide on Raya and Louis for 2023.
Over the last 18 months, I have watched almost 40 hours of YouTube videos created by Raya and Louis as one of their biggest fans.
If you’re curious about:
👉 How they afforded their van
👉 How they make their money today (including YouTube income stats)
👉 If Raya is actually pregnant (or if it’s merely internet gossip)
👉 What issues and controversies they have handled
👉 How you can live van life within the next 90 days
Then you’ve definitely come to the right website.
Before we begin, a quick intro from the Van Life Freedom author…
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 these beautiful creators…
Raya and Louis FAQs (January 2023)
Their bus doesn’t have a name, though it was featured in the Expedition Happiness documentary on Netflix.
Louis Cole (38)
Raya Cole (age 29)
They have been together for 7 years and recently got married:
It’s one of the most special weddings I’ve ever seen!
Now, there have been many rumors that Raya is pregnant. These are false. They did hint that a baby might be on the way but this didn’t eventuate, but has led to a lot of gossip within internet forums.
Their bus is an old school bus. Unlike most other YouTubers, they didn’t build it themselves and simply bought it off from friends who hadn’t used it for 2 years.
Prior to this they lived in 2 different vans.
Their school bus has been upgraded with a few things (paint, roof racks etc) and required some repairs.
Given the income from their YouTube channel, they were able to purchase their bus for cash. They appear to have a limited income but do have a decent bank balance.
Their earnings and wealth might surprise you!
As of 2023, Raya and Louis from YouTube have a net worth of $570,000 and make $17,200 per month simply by creating #vanlife videos.
Their income streams are:
👉 YouTube ads ($8,100/month)
👉 Affiliate links ($2,700/month)
👉 Brand sponsorships ($6,200/month)
However, they only spend around $2,500/month on the road, plus an additional $4,000/month for their part-time videographer (Justin) who joins them on some trips.
They will also be starting vegan health retreats in the near future.
Their biggest collaboration was with Travel Beans, although they have met numerous other YouTubers.
They’re currently touring South America and enjoying their time in Costa Rica after their recent wedding.
Louis and Raya have traveled through most of North America. Meanwhile, Louis ran a separate channel for many years prior called Fun For Louis before he met Raya. On that channel, he traveled to 20+ countries.
Their journey hasn’t been smooth sailing but Louis has always found ways to make it work. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him sad.
Where to next? Will they have a baby or two? It’s more than likely, and they’ll make the best parents!
What can we learn from this wonderful couple?
👉 Life is way too short to work until age 65
👉 More people live van life than you may imagine
👉 You can work remotely while adventuring
And of course, there is a Jane for every Tarzan… 😃
I have thoroughly enjoyed watching their adventures unfold on YouTube (even before Raya joined the channel) and can’t wait to see where they go next!
