They’re Living And Traveling In A Huge Van With 2 Kids!


This is the story of Colin and Sofi. They’re a family with two young children + a dog who are living and traveling out of a huge van and go by @afueravida which translates to “outdoor life”.

But it’s not just any van. It’s a 1978 Mercedes 508D German Command Vehicle. Yeah! It’s a pretty serious vehicle and may even be considered a bus. So here is their story thanks to the Tiny Home Tours Team… Enjoy!

    I love the van but I couldn’t take her. How many times did she say I have two kids? Seriously for north Americans he should have done the tour. I had to click it off bc she’s so annoying.

    Nicely done and a rock solid truck. For me it lacks a decent bathroom .
