Madilyn struggled with van life when she started. She missed her boyfriend, her family, her friends — and she had severe driving anxiety! But with frequent exposure and monthly trips back home, Madilyn has overcome the worst and successfully lived on the road for a year.

Her 32-square-foot camper van is her second rig. The first was an RV she renovated before realizing it was more than she wanted. She found this mostly converted campervan on Facebook Marketplace for $15K and then upgraded the kitchen and added some excellent shelving for $1K to make it work for her needs. What do you think of this conversion?

Ryan needed a way to get to all the adventure spots he loved, without limiting it to weekends and vacation days. Taking his remote job on the road in a custom-built Toyota Hilux camper conversion was the perfect fit for him.

The camper has a multi-purpose living area that allows him to eat/work/sleep and entertain, all from one U-shaped dinette. In order to make delicious meals on the road, he has gorgeous butcher block counters and for fun, he wood-burned with beautiful natural images. Enjoy his 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!

This couple wanted a chance to travel Europe — and do it inexpensively. So they decided to build out a campervan! Before it became their home, the van was a 4-wheeler transporter and completely gutted inside.

Now they have a folding couch/bed setup, a bench couch, and a nice kitchen space. Enjoy the photo tour below and then read our Q&A with the couple.

Cody and Christina love living in their 2018 Sprinter, which they named the Desert Cruiser. Their interview with Tiny Home Tours is extra special because they spend a few minutes discussing how perfect vanlife fits with their relationship: They haven’t spent a night apart in four years, and that’s the way they like it!

But in terms of the vehicle nuts and bolts, they have some great features including a 4-foot-wide sliding bike rack that makes storing and using their mountain bikes incredibly easy! And yes, there’s a toilet hidden in this build.

Follow their adventures on Instagram after checking out the video tour below.

Sometimes good things really do just fall in your lap! Hanna and Cody weren’t looking for a van, but when they saw one on the side of the road for sale by owner, and they had plenty of COVID-era free time on their hands, they chose to jump at the opportunity to convert it into a home on wheels!

They took out two of the extra passenger seats to allow for more room and an epic cooler. They did choose to leave the original orange shag carpet at the front of the van, but otherwise replaced it with laminate flooring that offers an easy-to-clean surface.

You’ll want to check out all the details (like their hidden toilet) in the Tiny Home Tours video below! Follow them on Instagram here.

This is the DoubleBack VW Transporter Campervan.

When on the road, the pod stays tucked up inside the back of the vehicle. Once the driver stops and decides they’d like to settle down someplace, however, it electrically extends out of the rear in under 45 seconds, adding approximately two meters (6.5 feet) of useable interior space.1
