Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations. Travel can be done by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, ship or other means.
You are not exempt from fasting. Even if your van is always moving to different locations, you need to fast as a frequent traveler.
According to our jurists, there are about twenty five prohibited acts during Ihram, and one of them is tadhleel, or being under a shade for a male during the day while travelling. This means a male cannot be directly under any shelter during the day time when travelling from the Miqat to Meccah al-Mukarramah, but then inside Meccah, he can.
In looking into the wisdom behind this, I have not come accross a reliable reference that explains this, but it seems that one possibility could be that it is a sign of humility. Instead of the person travelling with extravagence and comfort, he commences his spiritual journey of humbling himself by being under the sky.
And Allah knows best.
Muslims are allowed to join Dhuhr and Assr means to pray Assr after completing the Dhuhr prayer. Also to pray Isha after completing Maghrib prayer. This is according to the authentic Prophetic Hadeeths that the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) used to join his Prayers in Madina to avoid putting burden on his Ummah.
‘Muslims are allowed to join whenever and where ever they want.
‘Joining the Prayers does not mean to stand immediately for Assr after finishing the Dhuhr prayer. We recite Quranic verses and supplications after every Prayer, then we go for the next prayer.
Istikhara should not be done again unless the situation of the matter has changed. If there is no change in the matter, there is no points in trying to do an istikhara again.

Yes. It is mentioned in some narrations that writing قطمير Kitmir on bags or items can help in protection of the items.
If you missed fasting few days in the month of Ramadan, due to your menstrual period or due to traveling, you just need to keep Qadha fast for every missed day and there is no Kaffara of feeding sixty poor believers. Kaffara is obligatory on those who deliberately leave fasting not because of illness or menstrual period, or traveling.
No impact on you where ever you live but when you travel, you should take the end of the boarder of the city or town where you live to start counting the distance of your travel. If you live in a big city which has suburbs, you start counting from the end of suburbs.
If you leave the boarder if your city or town or area before noon, the fat of the day is invalid, but if you leave after noon then the fast of that day remains valid.
If you reach your destination where you intend to remain for ten days or more, you Prayer should be full. If you reach there before noon,bayou can have the intention of fasting that day of arrival and your fast will be valid as far as you reached their before noon and you intend to stay there for ten or more days.

In Sunni fiqh, there is some variety of opinion, so if any of you are following the rullings of Sunni schools of thought, you should discuss your plans with an expert or look into the different views.
If you go on your trip, have fun and be careful!
You have to perform your obligatory Prayers within its time in the best way that you can. If you can not stand up for Prayers, you can pray in sitting situation. You need to face the Qibla as much as you can.
There is no issue to travel to Muslim or non-Muslim countries provided one knows that they would not fall into sins or do haram actions there. Yes, if going to a particular location would make the person think there is a very high chance of them doing haram then they should avoid travelling there.
May Allah grant you success
