Mark had been doing van life for years when he met Marina and ended up moving into a house with her. Cue the lockdowns of 2020 and both of them were ready to get out! So they built out a van, then another van, and eventually this incredible box truck that doubles as party central when it gets dark.

Despite the wild nighttime vibe, it’s very calm and cozy on the inside with big cushy couches, an elevator bed, and a luxurious shower. The couple is now selling this rig, so they can build an overlanding version! Enjoy the tour below.

When you’re doing a build on a budget, Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace are amazing resources, as Courtney and Sawyer will tell you. They relied heavily on deals for reclaimed materials that created their awesome box truck home.

This adorable couple wanted to get into vanlife as soon as they were done with college and had saved up enough money to get started on a build. They were used to tiny spaces from their college days, so the transition has gone smoothly. What do you think of Elfie?

Nico & Jona are on their third tiny house on wheels, and by now they knew exactly what they needed to make their truck tiny home nearly perfect. Learning from past builds, they got this one professionally-designed by Nico’s brother-in-law (an architect) and it really shows!

Plus, they chose to splurge on all kinds of upgrades, like a dishwasher, washing machine, eco-flow shower head and incinerating toilet! As Nico says, could they have done it cheaper? Of course. But are they happy? Absolutely. What do you think?

Sawyer was going for a run when he had a sudden heart attack. Thankfully, some firefighters found Sawyer and immediately got him the help he needed. That experience was the catalyst that sent him and Courtney on tiny living journey. They watched Craigslist for a while until an inexpensive, local box truck popped up.

They took their time sourcing free and inexpensive items for their build-out and the results are amazing! For just $14k, they have a fully-functional home including a wet bath and elevator bed that allows them to have a bedroom and living room all in one cozy spot. What do you think?

Quin lives in his converted ProMaster so that he can get closer to his photography opportunities, but he’s actually on his 7th van conversion now! This box truck conversion was his latest conversion, made for a friend with some pretty lofty ideas. He wanted to levitate through the roof — and with some creative electronics — Quin made that dream come true.

The box truck was designed as a mobile office that transforms into a hotel room at night. As such, there’s a hidden potty, a compact kitchen that tucks away, and modular couches that can be moved onto the pull-out porch. It’s truly an engineering marvel. Enjoy the tour below!

Paul was ready to get away from the Pittsburg area and find a place with friendly and like-minded people who would want to talk to him — but he needed a way to support himself. A handyman at heart, he decided to build out a huge box truck, fill it will all (and I mean ALL) of his tools, a jacuzzi, a bed, and a microwave, and hit the road.

Paul has everything from a drill press to a table saw to tons of spare materials and a heavy vice grip loaded into his rig. He reuses the 50 gallons of water it takes to fill his jacuzzi with a meticulous chlorine + filtering process! You have never seen a conversion like this one.

Jacob’s sister was driving this box truck as her daily driver but was eager to trade it for his Camry. Once Jacob had the box truck, he and Sam decided it would be great to have their own space and be able to travel. So they spent 8 months of nights and weekends crafting a lovely tiny house.

They chose to have a convertible bed that stays in dinette mode during the day and a galley kitchen with a propane stove and tiny sink. While they only use it in emergencies, they have a 24×24 wet bath as well as a micro closet for hanging clothing. What do you think?

Back in 2018, Jasper had two choices: Van Life or Homelessness. He managed to find a box truck and outfit it to make it a home, but as soon as he got back on his feet he returned to “sticks and bricks.” That’s when he found himself quite unhappy and decided to revamp his box truck and make it an awesome condo on wheels.

Since this video aired, Jasper and his partner actually purchased a fifth wheel RV since they’re expecting a baby! Pretty cool that he’s still enjoying a nomadic life even as their family is growing. Still, his box truck conversion was (is) really neat and even included a full PC gaming area.

This awesome couple were no strangers to #vanlife — they had spent a couple years living in a van in New Zealand and working in permaculture. When they moved back to the states, they started looking all over for the perfect vehicle to make into home sweet home.

They proved that a box truck can be an excellent base for a home on wheels! Allysa and Harry purchased a 1990 Ford E350 Econoline box truck, and outfitted it with everything, including an awesome elevator bed, and a wet bath complete with a waterproof toilet paper holder.

Both of them work remotely, and have plans to find the perfect land to transform into an off-grid homestead someday. Awesome!
