This is the Roberta Vandar. It’s Darian Vander Vliet’s 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan Camper.

It’s a blast from the past reader submission that slipped through the cracks from 2016 but I figured would still be an interesting van build-out to look at, so here it is! Have you ever considered traveling and camping out of a minivan?

Just before the pandemic hit, Annie and her boyfriend split and she moved out and onto a new adventure. She chose a tiny van and built it out with a slat bed and hit the road! While she knew she enjoyed the nomadic life, she decided to upgrade to a more spacious truck camper with a bump out and a wet bath.

She completely remodeled her current rig, bringing it into 2021 style and making it fit her lifestyle. Annie’s constant companion is her dog, named Bear, and they are chasing good weather across the country. Her tech job is forever-remote now, so she does the 9-5 from “home” and then explores when she’s off duty. Awesome!

Josie had been looking into vanlife and when she got some remote work finally took the plunge. I love seeing what people can do with a non-Sprinter van, and she makes her 1999 Econoline into quite the home!

I love Josie’s spirit because delving into van living clearly boosted her confidence — from using a power drill for the first time, to cutting her bed to size in a parking lot with an electric knife. Those little things are making her more resilient and bold. She also says the unpredictability of #vanlife has made her a more “flowy” person. If you’re fascinated with van builds, we think you’ll love her video tour below!

You might think living on top of your truck would be extra cramped, but Chrissy proves it’s not true with her fantastic 2020 Capri camper that sits on top of her 2011 Chevy Silverado.

I don’t think I’ve seen a micro space this tiny that includes a 32″ indoor shower, but Chrissy’s does! She also has a little kitchenette with a microwave, fridge and a two-burner stove. While her bed doesn’t have the most headroom, it’s a queen size allowing her to really spread out!

Enjoy her interview with Tiny Home Tours below.
