Meet this awesome couple who took inspiration from marine set-ups to create a functional Sprinter van home. Unlike many vans we’ve seen, they put the kitchen along the cab of the van, creating a solid divider between the driving and living space.
That design choice gave them room to include a full banquette, a breezeway and a permanent bed setup. They chose a simple garage without much shelving so they could maximize all their space, and they have a huge battery bank for their solar power.
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?
This beautiful 2018 Sprinter conversion was created by VanLife Customs in Colorado. It has a full solar system, a built-in stove top, and a passenger swivel seat.
Unlike many conversions, this one runs the bed back-to-front, allowing for storage beside the bed instead of overhead, which could be really nice if headroom is particularly important to you! Enjoy the photo tour.
There’s no denying that vans are just about as tiny as tiny living comes, but Sam & Kelly included the major comfort of a shower and toilet into their van design. For Kelly, it was a must-have when they moved in after 10 months of converting their Sprinter into a home — but now? She says she could probably do without it!
She and Sam were working long hours at desk jobs in California, and could have kept working for years and still not have been able to afford real estate in the CA housing market. When the pandemic hit and they decided on #vanlife, they had no experience with it and were taking a big risk! But now they love it and are headed down to Mexico this week to travel there.
Cody and Christina love living in their 2018 Sprinter, which they named the Desert Cruiser. Their interview with Tiny Home Tours is extra special because they spend a few minutes discussing how perfect vanlife fits with their relationship: They haven’t spent a night apart in four years, and that’s the way they like it!
But in terms of the vehicle nuts and bolts, they have some great features including a 4-foot-wide sliding bike rack that makes storing and using their mountain bikes incredibly easy! And yes, there’s a toilet hidden in this build.
Shaunnan & Faith thought they might van life for a while and then find some land to homestead on, but after experiencing the amazing community in the van world, they’ve decided they may do it for far longer than they’d first planned.
Their Dodge Sprinter features a large (for a van) kitchen, complete with a fridge and freezer, and a nice, deep sink for washing cast iron pans. I really love the back of this van, because they did something somewhat unique with a couch-to-bed system that includes a roll-out table extender.
When it comes to stealth vanlife, the Dodge Sprinter van is high on the list of “best vans” to choose. This one, for sale in Northeast Portland, has already been outfitted inside with some really neat modular finishes that go from benches, to table, to bed with some clever folding!
While you’ll need to add kitchen accessories if you want to travel in this full-time, it’s an awesome start to your van life expedition! You can get all the details via Craigslist and at the end of our post!
