Becca, Tyler, and their four children spend their weekends traveling to amazing spots for skiing, mountain biking, and hiking adventures. The family loves outdoor sports, and was looking for a way to make getting to great places easier and more convenient. They weren’t up for a DIY build, but they came across Vandoit and had the most incredible rig made up for them!

This van sleeps 6 and safely seats all 6 family members, with bench seats that can be removed when they arrive on-site to allow more space to walk around the van. They have a pop-up shower stall, outdoor kitchen, and a “toilet tent” they set up upon arrival. What do you think of their home on wheels?

This family got the devastating news that their elementary-age son was slowly going blind — and there’s currently no cure. They decided to hit the road and ensure Luke got to see as much of the country as possible while he still has sight! Now, their adventure van is part of an epic giveaway to support their non-profit, A Race Against Blindness, that will fund a clinical trial for retinitis pigmentosa.

You can enter to win the van pictured below, or a custom van built to your own needs, PLUS $70,000 to help with taxes. It’s an incredible family van with sleeping for up to 6 people and seating for four. And yes, there’s an indoor shower!

While Gordo’s epic skoolie conversion might look ready to take on the zombie apocalypse, he has no intentions of using it to survive the end of days. Instead, he built the adventure rig as a passion project, and uses it to travel on vacations or transport the many tools that he has stored on the back deck.

The first thing he did with the school bus he bought at auction was to slice off the back half and build an intricate metal deck/roof rack. That only took about a month, but the interior finishes took about 2 years to complete. You’re going to love the video tour below, where he shows off all the incredible details of his space.

Like so many of the families we’ve interviewed, this family of five had the American Dream — the big house, lots of “toys” and plenty of stuff — but it came at the hefty cost of the dad working lots of hours and missing valuable time with his family. They already owned an RV and decided it was time to switch things up!

Once they were living in it full-time, they decided to upgrade their RV to something a bit more spacious, but now that they are used to life on the road, they realize they don’t even need the space they have! Enjoy the photo tour and hear from Mom, Lauren, about their tiny life below.

The biggest debates when converting a van seem to be 1) Should you install an indoor shower? and 2) Should you have a fixed bed or a convertible one? Blake and Tabby chose to maximize space and leave out the shower. They also chose a convertible bed that sets up as a U-shaped conversation area during the day.

They’re taking this fantastic ProMaster to visit all the National Parks and have no plans of quitting vanlife anytime soon. Because they’d sold most of their belongings and furniture before moving into the van, the space felt rather luxurious compared to eating ramen in their empty apartment! You can see why in the tour below.

Steve & Barbara were reaching retirement and figuring out their next step. Eventually, they settled on bus life and spent a year looking at buses. When they came across this 2007 Thomas C2 Skoolie that had only 30K miles on it, they decided to spend the $9K on it and get to work on the conversion.

The conversion is quite spectacular — with reclaimed granite countertops, a comfortable bathroom, and a cozy back bedroom. They have an excellent hand-designed front couch that turns into a second bed. What’s your favorite part of the bus?

The Hancock family was ready to see more of the world. Mom and dad had been born, raised, and lived in the same city their whole lives and wanted their kids to have more experiences with the world than they did. So they bought a bus to travel in during their wedding photography off-season.

Incredibly, their 40-foot 2001 Bluebird skoolie conversion took only 69 days to complete! And you wouldn’t be able to tell by looking at it, with the large benches for family time in the living room, the spacious kitchen, and the neat bed set-up in the back of the rig. Enjoy the tour!
