This custom Sprinter van is home to Jordan and Tommy, who use the van to travel throughout New Zealand.  This is their third van, and improves on all the shortcomings of their previous rigs. Both of them worked stressful jobs in the UK before deciding to sell their home and pursue vanlife in Australia. After living there awhile, they got a new van to enjoy New Zealand — and they have no plans to ever go back to homeownership!

The van has a great layout, with double swivel chairs in the front that turn to face a mini couch (which *can*) become a twin bed, although they’ve never used it. The kitchen and bathroom face each other in the middle of the van, and the queen-sized bed takes up the back. They have two more bench seats in front of the bed which house additional storage. Enjoy their tour below!

Jennie is a remarkable woman who has lived a full life traveling the globe as a journalist. She had to pivot when the world shut down in 2020, and ended up living out of her car while planning her van conversion. Once she got her hands on the van, it only took her 15 days to complete the conversion, using metal IKEA cabinets and an IKEA couch for the main infrastructure.

The interior of the van is all Beatles-themed, with “Yellow Submarine” pillows, a Beatles quilt, and all kinds of fun knickknacks related to the band. She’s been able to visit all 50 states and all the national parks in the lower 48 states during her past couple years of travel. Enjoy her tour below!

Alex and Meg are “slow roamin'” the Americas in their recently redone 2006 Chevy Express 2500. They added a roof raise and tons of awesome exterior gear to ensure they can get to and stay just about anywhere on their journey!

Their van, named “Betty” has gotten a total overhaul, including a much larger kitchen so cooking on the road is easier. They tucked the fridge between the front seats, and Alex built a cool rack that keeps all their dishes in place, no matter what the terrain. Let us know which part you love the most!

Kath set out to live nomadically in 2017, when she purchased an RV and hit the road — for three days. She didn’t like pulling her house and hated the black tank — and ended up moving abroad instead! But she had nothing to come home to, so she decided to build a van conversion and live out of that when stateside.

She intentionally chose a lower profile van so she could stealthily park just about anywhere, and she’s made very few exterior modifications. On the inside, she wanted a fixed bed so she could crawl into it and fall asleep whenever she felt like it. She travels with a roof pod filled with her materials to do craft markets for her real flower jewelry, and a typewriter for creating poetry. Enjoy the tour!

This van is so sleek and well-crafted and bursting with fun features. While this is only the third van Ikey has built all on his own, he has experience working on nearly 30 rigs with several van conversion companies. He got started right out of high school and those years of hard work show in his van, Patience.

She has a flip-down back deck, “green” wall, Murphy bed, surfboard tunnel, hidden toilet, and a gorgeous tile backsplash Ikey meticulously put together. The vertical garage in the back makes it easy for Ikey to store and see all his adventure gear when he needs it. Tell us which feature you’d want in your van in the comments!

Brandon loves adventure sports and was a carpenter by trade, and van life gave him the chance to explore the rest of the country before he officially settles down. While he misses the space his apartment had — especially for all his sporting equipment — he thinks the trade-off of being outdoors so much and exploring new places is worth it.

Even with his experience building, Brandon still thinks he spent more time on YouTube than he did building the van! It was a learning curve, but he’s better for it. And he found a clever way to include a shower. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Becca, Tyler, and their four children spend their weekends traveling to amazing spots for skiing, mountain biking, and hiking adventures. The family loves outdoor sports, and was looking for a way to make getting to great places easier and more convenient. They weren’t up for a DIY build, but they came across Vandoit and had the most incredible rig made up for them!

This van sleeps 6 and safely seats all 6 family members, with bench seats that can be removed when they arrive on-site to allow more space to walk around the van. They have a pop-up shower stall, outdoor kitchen, and a “toilet tent” they set up upon arrival. What do you think of their home on wheels?
