Birdie: Family-Friendly Van Conversion!

This post contains affiliate links.

Birdie is one of Safe + Sonder Van‘s recent conversions, custom-built for a family of four. Instead of building in permanent bunks (which they did a great job of in their North model), this family chose an innovative Cabbunk system. The bunks are like hanging cots that can be put up and down when needed.

They used a U-shaped dinette that converted into a queen bed at night to give the family space to eat and hang out. Two additional captain chairs provide the children with a safe place to sleep at night. And yes, there’s a bathroom—indoors—for the family to use!
