Couple’s Customized High-Top VW Camper Van with Solar-Power
Emma was looking for complete and total freedom, as well as a way to live more sustainably and create less waste. Vanlife seemed like the perfect lifestyle for her, so she bought a camper van and gutted it, spending a year making it into her home.
Originally from Connecticut, Emma has taken the van cross-country and is enjoying her nomadic lifestyle (although COVID-19 has, unsurprisingly, put a wrench in her travel plans and reduced the number of showers she gets!). Check out the awesome video tour from Allison over at Tiny Home Tours. You can follow Emma’s travels on Instagram here.

1997 Van turned Home: Emma Goes
This is the story of one couple’s beautiful, cozy, and stealthy cargo trailer tiny house conversion named Minnie. It’s a 112-sq.-ft. trailer turned into a very nice camper!
Why is it so exciting? Well, when you see it you’ll understand. But it features a king bed, full bath with toilet and shower, and a flip-up table. It’s really cool what you can do with one of these trailers, don’t you think? With this one, they used the area over the trailer hitch to create a spacious shower.

Volkswagen EuroVan Camper Conversion by Winnebago… Sleeps Four And Fits In A Garage
It’s always fun to find something completely different, and that’s what you get with the Haaks Opperland campervan. This is actually an itty-bitty two-storey cabin that sits on the bed of a compact Fiat flatbed truck.
Simply drive the home to your location and drop it off. The 13-foot-long building then pops open, and the truck is free to drive wherever you need to go!
I’ll confess up front: It’s not even remotely affordable at more than $140,000 (especially since you’d have to ship it overseas — it’s built by a Dutch company), but the idea is brilliant and maybe it’ll catch on!
