A 7$ tarp from Walmart can also make a decent rain shelter; not sure on the size of a goretex bivy sack but that could be a good investment. Down sleeping bags are compact but useless in wet weather.
If you're on a budget, vehicles are very expensive, especially clunky vans, though tent trailers are appealing. I'm trying to save money to start a business.
