While plenty of people build their campervans, not everyone has that initial build turn into an incredible business that has now converted 40 different mobile spaces into homes on wheels! But that’s the story of Gina and Matty, who own and operate Byron Bay Van Fitouts in Australia.

Hey there, fellow tiny house and van life enthusiasts! Today, I stumbled upon a listing that made me do a bit of a double-take, and I just had to share it with you.

Imagine hitting the open road, with all the comforts of home packed into a sleek, modern van. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, this dream could be your reality with this “Cedar Cabin” Mercedes Sprinter conversion that’s up for grabs on Van Life Trader.

Listed in Loveland, Colorado, this 2023 Mercedes Sprinter is near new, with a mere 2,222 miles on the odometer. The van is priced at $89,000. What do you think?

This custom Sprinter van is home to Jordan and Tommy, who use the van to travel throughout New Zealand.  This is their third van, and improves on all the shortcomings of their previous rigs. Both of them worked stressful jobs in the UK before deciding to sell their home and pursue vanlife in Australia. After living there awhile, they got a new van to enjoy New Zealand — and they have no plans to ever go back to homeownership!

The van has a great layout, with double swivel chairs in the front that turn to face a mini couch (which *can*) become a twin bed, although they’ve never used it. The kitchen and bathroom face each other in the middle of the van, and the queen-sized bed takes up the back. They have two more bench seats in front of the bed which house additional storage. Enjoy their tour below!

Keko’s nomadic life started when so many others did — in 2020. His job went remote, and he escaped the US and went to Mexico to wait out the lockdowns. When it was time to come home, he decided to do something different and chose to purchase a van. But he actually lived in the van during the conversion process, starting out with just a couple of totes and an air mattress.

Today his stealthy rig boasts a unique floor storage system. He built up the floor using extruded aluminum — 12 inches in the living room space and 18 inches back in the kitchen area — to allow him to keep all his goods tucked underneath him. A convertible couch/bed provides him a spot to sleep and a single skylight lets light in. What do you think of this fascinating design?

While pop-top campers are nothing new, adding your own to a regular Sprinter van is quite remarkable. That’s what Stu did! He had a low-top Sprinter and wanted more headroom and amenities, and he was able to get that with his innovative DIY.

The downstairs of the rig is equally impressive, with great storage, a couch that folds into a second bed, and space for a mini microwave and a one-burner cooktop. He’s been nomadic now for 6 years and recently began doing van conversion or upgrades for others.

Des had awesome plans to travel to 30 countries by the time she turned 30, but 2020 ruined her plans and she had to pivot. She’d been interested in RV life and finally had a reason to sell everything and buy a van! Her DIY rig is filled with personality.

She used a tool chest as a large portion of her storage and while she avoids cooking most of the time, she does have a propane camp stove. Enjoy the tour of her floral-filled van.

Braden is a software engineer & parachute rigger who stumbled into BASE jumping somewhat accidentally — he needed work and was offered a job stuffing parachutes. About 6 months later, his boss said it was time to jump.

Since then, he hasn’t stopped! Van life just makes sense for his life, so he can travel to the best places to jump. He built out his own house and even used his parachute repair skills to sew his own couch cushions.

Craig and Tanya are enjoying their midlife years in their Sprinter van conversion. They have a unique cork ceiling and fabric-covered plywood panels to absorb lots of sound inside the van.

They didn’t want to tear down and put up a bed, so they have a stationary one, as well as a convertible couch/eating area. Bamboo cabinets and multiple cooking options keep their kitchen set-up dynamic. What do you think?

Here’s an awesome 2018 Mercedes Sprinter that’s been home to the couple over @thedesertcruiser for the past couple years. They’re upgrading to a larger rig and hoping to find a new owner for this one.

Birch plywood makes up most of the interior of the van, which features bench seating, a fixed bed, and a kitchenette with a propane cook top. There’s a great pull-out shelf in the garage of the van and a large rooftop deck. What do you think?
