Driving Dee Dee: Orange Sprinter Built Out By Two Novices

Courtney and James (@drivingdeedee) didn’t know anything about construction or outfitting a van when they purchased their awesome orange Sprinter, but that didn’t stop them from spending 18 months creating an awesome home on wheels so they could travel Europe.

Besides the lovely and unusual exterior color, the inside features a wet bath, a kitchen with a mini fridge and stowable cooktop, and a dinette that turns into their queen-sized bed. The interior looks just as autumnal as the outside, and you can tell lots of sweat and love went into this build.

Watch the great video from FLORB below, where you’ll hear all about the mistakes they made and how they’re enjoying life on the road.
