OnlyFans star reveals she’s swapped her £1m penthouse and £120,000-a- year earnings to live in a renovated builder’s van because the lavish lifestyle didn’t make her happy

  • Honour May Spencer, 26, from Knutsford, Cheshire, has transformed van 
  • Travels around the UK creating content for OnlyFans and her social media 
  • Bought the van as seven-day work week lifestyle was too much for her
  • She did all the renovations herself including tiling, wiring and plumbing  

An OnlyFans star has swapped her lavish £1m penthouse and £120,000 a year salary to live full-time in a renovated builders van.

Honour May Spencer, 26, from Knutsford, Cheshire, has named the 2019 Mercedes Sprinter ‘Liberté’ and with the help of YouTube tutorials, she has worked on transforming the van into a ‘studio apartment on wheels’.

She has done all of the insulating, wiring and plumbing herself as well as tiling the shower and with the van now her permanent base, she travels around the UK making £4,000 a month through creating content for OnlyFans and her ‘Girls That Travel’ Instagram and YouTube accounts. 

Her van has a shower and kitchen complete with a full-sized gas cooker as well as a seating area that converts into a super king-size bed which she shares with her two dogs Marcia, three, and eight-month-old puppy Marie.

The 26-year-old told the Mirror: ‘It even has a full-sized wardrobe and storage for almost all of my high heels. And I have a lot of shoes.

‘I even put in skirting boarding and decorative trim to make it look and feel like a high-class London apartment.’

She swapped the lavish lifestyle she was living for van life after working seven day weeks as a model, cam girl and adult performer. 

While it was earning her lots of money, the seven-day work weeks had a negative effect on her relationships and mental health.  

Honour admitted that even though she was living in a luxury penthouse in Brighton and earning about £120,000 a year, she was unhappy as she had no time to enjoy it. 

In 2019, the model only spent around nine full weeks at home because she was constantly travelling.

Honour bought her first van in November 2020 but unfortunately it was stolen from a car park in Leeds midway through the conversion along with more than £5,000 of solar equipment and batteries awaiting installation. 

Additionally, she had to pay out £40,000 as her insurance claim was rejected because she was listed as a photographer rather than a model with her company.

It left a permanent mark insurance history and raised her premiums to £4,950 a year. 

Afterwards, she then bought a new van, spending £20,000 on it and was converting it for a further 12 months so she could finally have her mortgage-free home. 

Honour admitted that even though she was living in a luxury penthouse in Brighton and earning about £120,000 a year, she was unhappy as she had no time to enjoy it but now she is happy she is persevered to have her dream home and is setting off for Europe with her two dogs in August 

In August, the 26-year-old will leave for Europe with her two dogs and is so ‘excited’ to have the freedom to enjoy her home.

She admitted that she has had an emotional journey and there have been many ‘final straw’ moments in the last two years but she is very happy she has persevered to have her dream home. 

And Honour added: ‘No matter where you are from, what you do for a living or how much you have spent on your van the van life UK community accepts you.’

The 26-year-old said she has made lots of new friends and finally feels able to be her true self, excited to travel and explore in her van as well as launching her YouTube channel.  

Her story comes as it was revealed that many people have been enquiring about buying vans and converting them into homes amid the cost of living crisis, according to removal firm TheManVan.
