Elliot’s Meticulously-Planned Rig w/ Murphy Bed

Elliot’s van is honestly a marvel of van engineering! Not only did he do everything “differently” than the norm, he did it well. You’ll find a queen-sized Murphy bed, 8 feet of counter space, no garage, and one powerful power system made possible by Tesla batteries.

He lived in the van from the summer of 2020 until recently and has put the van up for sale (asking $110K). Update: now sold. Follow him on Instagram to see what he’s up to next!

    a man who has found happiness and contentment at a young age – Bravo! Is the van insulated and what about heat/cooling other than the roof window and front door windows – his planning paid off big time.

      Doesn’t mention insulation in either the video or sales listing page and his Instagram page shows he stuck to warmer climates in his travels, which suggest it isn’t, but the listing shows it has a Webasto Airtop 2000 STC Heater… Under Extras it lists, Portable Air Conditioner | Zero Breeze Mark 2 | Extra Battery… And the skylight opens for ventilation and allows for a lot of airflow…

    This is a masterpiece of customization. Lots of things I haven’t seen before, like the seats that pull out like drawers, the skinny cupboard for silverware, and the unique Murphy bed.
