Carly says John was the first van lifer she met. They fell in love pretty quickly, and she moved into his DIY rig. John admits that plenty changed when a girl moved in and needed a few more “luxuries” to live comfortably. But the DIY wooden roof raise was all for him, so he could stand upright inside!

The van “Woody” gets in name from all the reclaimed wood used to build out the interior. It has a convertible couch/bed situation and a compact kitchen. The couple just purchased a bus they are in the process of converting, so Woody will be for sale once they complete their new build.

Tim and Katie converted a Ford Transit to keep them busy in 2020 and have used it to travel part-time around Canada and the U.S. The van has only the best features, including a recirculating shower that uses only 3 gallons of water and heated floors that keep their toes toasty even in chilly Canadian weather.

Since the video tour below, the couple found out they’re expecting! But they’re now converting more vans as their side gig. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! Would you try a recirculating shower?

Tenaj and Tino were world travelers, always going to new places and enjoying exploration. But when the world shut down, Tenaj was finally able to convince Tino to get a Sprinter van and convert it into their full-time home!

Their beautiful build-out includes dark cabinets, textured walls, and bold bursts of colors. There are two swivel chairs, a flip-up extra countertop, and a couch that transforms into a tiny table and chairs. Oh, and there’s a bathroom. Enjoy the tour!

Nate and Maud might be one of the most adorable couples we’ve seen before! After meeting in Thailand just before the world shut down and then getting married so they could stay together, the couple chose to build out a van and hit the road with their full-time remote jobs. And they have no intentions of ever quitting #vanlife!

Their rig is almost entirely white on the inside, including a custom whitewashed tongue-in-groove ceiling. They have “long-ways” bed setup so they can stretch out (they’re both over 5’10”), and even a hide-away shower they pull out for 5 to 10 minutes a day. What’s your favorite part?

When Kels and Jay first went tiny, they converted a large bus into an awesome tiny house. Kels said that was largely for her — she couldn’t imagine downsizing any further into a van. But after two years of #buslife, she realized she didn’t need that much! So they sold the bus and converted a Ford Transit into an awesome van house.

Unlike many vans, theirs includes a wet bath and an oven! They created a cool “bed desk” with a gaming chair so they can edit all the videos they post on YouTube or that they take for Jenna of Tiny House Giant Journey. When they aren’t filming, they make money helping others convert their buses/vans into tiny homes. Let me know what you think in the comments!

This nurse & teacher couple were burnt out after COVID did a number to their professions — so they decided to take a sabbatical in Baja — in a van! Their DIY promaster is just lovely, with a long countertop for cooking and a huge picture window to let in the sunlight.

They have a hidden cassette toilet on slides, beautiful half-moon cabinet doors, and some inexpensive IKEA “side tables.” In the garage they managed to fit a blow-up paddleboard and all their gear for adventures. Now they’re wondering if they should stay on the road or go back to “normal” life!

We’ve all had a bad first date, but for Dan and Kenz, they knew something was “right” when they both discussed their desire to someday live in a van! They just needed “a push” and the pandemic made their jobs remote, allowing them to take the plunge.

Their van has a gorgeous black-and-copper design with lots of dark wood and plenty of plants. And yes, they squeezed in a shower and toilet, even if it doesn’t get a lot of use now that gym showers are open again. What do you think of their design?

They weren’t looking for an ambulance when they decided to transition from backpacking to vanlife, but it’s what popped up in their budget — and they made it into an awesome home for two digital nomads.

Because of the extra width (compared to a Sprinter), they were able to comfortably fit a stationary full-sized bed. Raychel has no problems standing in the van, but with a 5’8″ clearance, Nick has to crouch a bit. They both agree their tiny sink is the worst part of the build. Enjoy the tour!

There’s no denying that vans are just about as tiny as tiny living comes, but Sam & Kelly included the major comfort of a shower and toilet into their van design. For Kelly, it was a must-have when they moved in after 10 months of converting their Sprinter into a home — but now? She says she could probably do without it!

She and Sam were working long hours at desk jobs in California, and could have kept working for years and still not have been able to afford real estate in the CA housing market. When the pandemic hit and they decided on #vanlife, they had no experience with it and were taking a big risk! But now they love it and are headed down to Mexico this week to travel there.
