From Townhouse to RV to Van Life: Chad & Leanna’s Adventures

This post contains affiliate links.

Chad and Leanna — ages 26 & 24 — got married three years ago and knew they wanted out of their oversized townhouse and into tiny life — but they didn’t realize *how* tiny.

They started by gutting and renovating a 30-foot RV, but it was too difficult to travel with, so they decided to downsize into “Vinnie the Van” — a Ram Promaster Campervan. Now the couple and their dog have been on the road for three months.  Leanna is a full time virtual health and wellness coach while Chad is a musician in his band.

Allison over at Tiny Home Tours did an awesome video tour with the couple, which you can watch at the end of the post!

    This without a doubt is the best van conversion I have ever seen, kudos to this couple, very well done.

    I really like that they have a bathroom in it. It makes more like a home and in these times it’s not easy find a public restroom. Also that’s a fabulous sink! It is a very nice home on wheels.

      Yes I would definitely need even a teeny-tiny bathroom!
