Michael and Acacia have been living in their self-converted van in South Africa for the past two years. While van life is not particularly popular in South Africa, they’ve had lots of success and enjoy staying at campgrounds for very little money.

Their conversion only cost them about $10K, which is the average cost of a basic car in South Africa – and instead of just a car, they have a home on wheels! Check out their awesome budget build below.

  • With a $10K budget, they’ve transformed their van into a comfortable home on wheels, featuring unique epoxy counters and clever design elements.
