Florian used his lockdown time to let his creative juices flow. He wanted a campervan conversion that worked for his lifestyle: Something that he could take on weekend or week-long adventures; that could sleep one or two people; that could hold his mountain bike or chest refrigerator if needed. So he created an epic modular system — and blogged about the whole thing so that you can do it too!
Using an aluminum frame, he was able to build a system with pull-out drawers and a fold-over bed that can adjust as needed. Since this is just a regular passenger van, you’ll be impressed with how much he can fit in! Let’s hear from Florian below.
This beautiful Scandinavian-Inspired tiny home is called the Nordic Abode and features a striking minimalist design. There’s a kitchen and bedroom space, divided by a compact bathroom with a shower, toilet, and vanity.
The interior walls are whitewashed pine and there’s a sink, cooktop, and spot for a mini-fridge under the counter. Big picture windows let in tons of natural light and allow you to enjoy lovely views. The tiny homes are built out of Monterey, Tennessee.
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!

This is the model house for Tiny Lofts, a new tiny house builder in Germany with an eco-friendly design for a modular tiny house sans wheels.
The sleek, modern house has a minimalistic Nordic feel on the exterior, but many of the exterior and interior finishes can be selected from a catalog and customized to suit your tastes. At about 323 square feet, the home includes a compact kitchen, spacious open floor plan for the living space, and a super-luxurious bathroom with a full soaking tub in front of a whole-wall window.
You can customize the house to be off-grid, or let it hook up to power and water like a standard house. A wood stove, radiant floor heating and electrical units are all choices for climate control. Enjoy the photo tour below and check out more options and details on the Tiny Lofts website here. The model house is also open as a vacation rental, in case you want to see the quality and function of the house up close. Book here.
This is the Neuron EV Micro Truck Concept electric vehicle. It’s a multifunctional modular truck that can have a variety of purposes including the potential for motorhome and travel trailer use. I wonder what the range and efficiency of something like this would be.
The Neuron EV STAR is a multipurpose micro truck set to disrupt the market by creating a new wave of electric car culture. Its clean and minimalistic design is reflective of the company’s product philosophy of simply versatile.
