Kelsey & Corbin from Steps to Wander are a sweet couple whose quest for freedom and the open road led them to buy an old Ford E-350 El Dorado Encore camper van that was mechanically sound but that needed a total makeover on the inside. The pair spent months repairing leaks, cleaning up mould & mildew and building custom furniture; and they completely transformed the space into a cozy and functional conversion van.
Couple Transforms Old Campervan Into Cozy Home on Wheels
Their van is the perfect tiny house on wheels because it has all the amenities they need, including a full kitchen with a fridge and an oven, a shower and toilet, a dinette area, and a sofa bed that converts into an almost queen sized bed.
They travel with their small dog, Paris, who has a bed under the dinette area, and a space at the back of the van for times when the couple has to leave him alone in the van. They set up a small baby gate to keep him in the kitchen area where he can’t get into trouble, and they leave the roof vent on, along with an ice cold water bottle for him to lean on in case it gets hot in the van.
