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

When Sam Jacquette was paying $1100 a month in rent and working at a job that he didn’t enjoy just to pay his bills he decided he would make some changes.

He set a 2014 New Year’s resolution to stop doing things he didn’t enjoy doing and to start doing everything he wanted to do. And making this 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia van his home on wheels would be the first step.

After buying it, he got rid of his apartment, quit his job, and has been living in it and focusing on his New Year’s resolution. To do so, he’s decided to only keep his “top 5 favorites” of just about all of his possessions. His wardrobe, for example, is very minimal.

As for work goes, now he’s doing something more in line with his passion since he’s able to afford to make the decision after the drastic downsize. He now works for Hofmann Architecture helping to restore Airstream travel trailers. And Sam’s goal is to upgrade into an Airstream in the near future.

So here’s my tiny house. It’s a 1995 Intervec Falcon 190 Class B RV.

Lately I have been calling it our guest house because it’s parked outside of our 500 square foot apartment–interior pics coming soon!

It’s a micro efficiency on wheels. It has a couch that converts into a small bed. A loft sleeping area up top with very little head room.

A little kitchenette with a refrigerator, cook stove, sink, and cabinets.

And a little shower and toilet in the rear.

Note: This has since been sold.
