Do you remember how cool the Adaptiv™ system for the Happier Camper was? The cube furniture could be reconfigured just like Legos to allow endless layout options. Well, they now sell an Adaptiv™ kit for select Sprinter vans!
First you’ll install their fiberglass flooring, and then your cube kit simply locks in place. They have storage cubes to make seating and a bed, as well as cubes for a cooler, sink, table and even a toilet cube. This is a really neat middle ground between a complete custom build-out by a professional, and a DIY conversion.
While you’ll have to get a quote for an exact price, they were estimating about $20K for the cube set up a couple years ago while it was in production. The pandemic and material costs likely increased that, but it’s still cheaper than a custom build-out, and you can move the pieces around to fit your needs whenever you want!
Make sure to watch the video below to see it in action.
This Covered Wagon at the Sandy Valley Dude Ranch has all kinds of “Little House on the Prairie” vibes, with far more comfort than the Ingalls ever experienced. Inside, the cowboy wagon has all kinds of fun Victorian decor to make you feel like you’re stepping back in time.
Scott and Ashley of the Hive Drive Bus stayed at the wagon recently, and sent us their fantastic pictures and video tour of their stay. The ranch is fully-functional, and there are animals for you to meet and restaurant dinners to enjoy. Enjoy their tour at the end of the post.
If you want to stay here, book a few nights over at Airbnb.
Summit Tiny Homes in British Columbia, Canada keeps things compact in this 20 foot THOW — and does it in style!
A mint green door with diamond windows take you into the little space where you’ll find a built-in couch tucked under a picture window.

You can design your own Summit Tiny Home and get a quote on their website here.
Here’s another beautiful vacation THOW located in the Acony Bell Tiny Home Village just outside of Asheville in North Carolina. While the community has rental lots for long-term tiny house dwellers, it also offers a number of vacation tiny homes so you can try out your tiny lifestyle before taking the plunge.
Built by ESCAPE Traveler, this 340 foot square foot house is reliably built and features both a queen-sized downstairs bedroom and a queen-sized loft. You’ll also get a spacious bathroom with a full shower/tub so you don’t have to sacrifice on comfort during your stay.
Meet Jay Blackmore (@floatinthekoots) and his incredible DIY Off-Grid Floating Home that he spent four years building in his “spare” time.
Not only did he build it, but he also designed the entire thing and did all the work except the electrical and gas hookups (probably wise!). The home is about 700 square feet and includes an open concept living room and kitchen, and a second floor with two bedrooms. The home is heated in the freezing Canada winters by his pellet stove (or a back-up propane heater) and even some gas lamps!
Make sure to watch the video from Exploring Alternatives to hear Jay explain his incredible closed-loop system for his gray water!
Need a romantic getaway once COVID-19 is under control? This rustic tiny cabin in Canada on your own private pond looks like the perfect place to unplug.
This little one-room cabin measures 13 x 10.5 feet and has a bedroom loft or a futon with an air mattress if you don’t like ladders. The best part, in my opinion, is the wood burning stove. There’s a composting toilet for #1 inside the cabin, but a three-minute walk from the cabin is a lovely Victorian home with a full kitchen and luxurious bathroom you are welcome to. You can book your stay here on Airbnb! Enjoy the photo tour below.
This is a 652-sq.-ft. cottage in Tiny Ten, a tiny house community development in downtown Reno, Nevada that consists of just ten beautifully designed small homes with detached garages. And one of the units is currently available. It’s the City Trailblazer model.
It’s a two-bedroom, one-bath cottage and it’s listed for $285,000 via Barrie Lynn of Ferrari-Lund Real Estate. You can check it out via Realtor.com. It’s not the most affordable small home we’ve ever seen, but it’s still a good example of what can be done. What do you think?
