Lisa Franks thought her athletic ambitions were over when a spinal cord injury left her in a wheelchair at only 14 years old, but Paralympians visited her and showed her she could find new ways to do her favorite things. After getting seven medals, a shoulder injury severely altered her life. It took several surgeries to get her out of the house, and that’s when she tried car camping for the first time!

The camping eventually led to her ordering a van and creating an incredible wheelchair-accessible home on wheels. She can navigate the entire van alone, including taking out her mountain bike and surfboard. Watch the video to see how she made her van fit her lifestyle.

Amanda and her three teenage children decided to go tiny in a school bus conversion about three years ago. It took them about 18 months to convert the bus into a home on wheels, and they’ve been traveling in it for another 18 months.

The bus has many reclaimed and recycled features, which is one of the ways they kept costs down. They have plenty of seating in the living room so all the kids are comfortable, and a compact bathroom that meets their needs. Watch their inspirational tour below!

This box truck conversion was meticulously planned out and saved over the course of two years while Eva and Braydyn lived in a camper in the cab of his truck (that you couldn’t stand in). The result of their careful design plans is incredible and works perfectly for their life together.

They chose a fixed bed, two refrigerators, a full-sized closet, and a large shower to make this a true home on wheels. Their impressive battery system helps them easily boondock, and they love doing life together. What do you think of this box truck?

“Take what’s important to you, put it in your van, and see the world.” That’s the advice Angie and Tommie give to others considering a van conversion. The couple uses it for weekend trips and vacations, but they may bite the bullet and downsize entirely someday. That’s why they took great pains to make the van functional as a full-time home.

It has everything you need: a hidden bathroom with a toilet, a queen-sized bed, swivel chairs, and a kitchen with an induction cooktop they can tuck away when they aren’t cooking. The battery bank is incredible, allowing them to run the A.C. for days at a time without solar power. What do you think of this conversion?

The Black Crane Treehouse in Bremerton, Washington, is the creative genius of Jodi and Shawn, an incredible artsy couple who work as a potter and contractor, respectively. They wanted to build a spot on their property where creatives could stay during an art residency at Rockland Residency. They worked alongside the “powers that be” to create a fully legal tiny house suspended between two 100-year-old trees.

When artists aren’t using it, it’s available to anyone on Airbnb. You can sit on the wrap-around porch and soak in views of the Olympic mountains. The studio-style interior fits a King-sized bed, which sits beneath a large round window. The home also includes a kitchenette and a luxury wet bath. Enjoy the tour below!
