Scott has been surfing on this popular California beach for 50 years and had plenty of experience with boats and RVs, so when they changed the rules about the size of vehicles allowed on the beach, he decided to downsize. He wasn’t planning on building something himself, but with the shutdowns of 2020, he decided to take on the project.

And wow! He did a great job. His house has a full-sized bed, an L-shaped couch on an electric lift that houses his electrical system, a separate bathroom with a boat toilet and shower stall, and amazing under-floor storage so he doesn’t have to clutter the space with overhead cabinets. Enjoy!

You might remember this couple’s party box truck we showed you some months back, but they sold it and built a whole new box truck! This one has “fixed” everything they didn’t love about Build #1, and you can tell it’s been carefully crafted.

They have a fantastic step-down shower stall, tons of gorgeous resin-covered butcher block, an amazing elevator bed, and a back deck where they can hang out. This is a tour that just keeps giving, so be sure to watch the whole thing!

Max didn’t “get into” nomadic vehicle life because of YouTube — he was born into it! His parents each had their own van conversions before they got married and when little Max came along they converted an awesome truck tiny home and Max “helped.” In other words, it was in his blood!

So it’s no surprise that this 19-year-old decided to take on his own box truck conversion when he was ready to move out! His build is particularly remarkable because of how many free and reclaimed materials he used in order to stay under budget. Enjoy the tour below!

Below, Cyrus takes us on a tour of his self-built 4×4 Fuso FG which he lives in full-time. But this is far from his first van! Cyrus says he has lived in every kind of VW bus except the Syncro and has been dreaming of this box truck rig for more than a decade.

He works on the road helping others fix up their vans and buses out of the awesome workshop he has tucked under one of the beds inside his truck. His bus has big windows, a penthouse tent, an awesome solar system, and lots of space for entertaining. Enjoy seeing all the details below!

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.

Mario wanted a way to travel stealthily but still have room to spread out when he found a campervan-friendly spot. So he designed it himself! Altogether, he spent about $40k (in Euros) on his unfolding box truck, doing some work himself and then hiring some freelancers to finish the job.

He used the best features and materials for his solar setup, heating/cooling systems, and water system to make sure the process of living on the road was as nice as possible. While you can fully use the campervan when it’s closed up, the front, back and side open up to create extra rooms! Tell us what you think.

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.
