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.

Chris and Bobby met soon after Chris sold her Florida home. The couple wanted to travel together internationally, but the pandemic sidetracked those plans. Before they knew it they were dreaming of a van! While they still have a “home base,” they spent nearly 2 months on the road together in their van travelling the country.

And because of Bobby’s 30+ years of construction experience, the couple decided to start a van conversion business and help others get the build of their dreams. As you’ll see from their person build, Ivan, they do great work!

Brad and Shyla wanted to switch things up in life, so they went down the van life rabbit-hole on YouTube, purchased a van, and then moved in — when all they had in it was a platform and their Tempurpedic mattress! Neither had any construction experience, but the finished product is gorgeous.

They included an oven (pretty rare in vans) so professional baker Brad could cook bread in his Dutch Oven! Shyla is a professional makeup artist but works remotely to support them now that the build is complete. I think you’ll love what you see below.

Meet Nat & Don, a couple who wanted to go tiny — and then chose to go even tinier! They started out with a bus conversion, but after some time realized it was too big, and made it tricky to find spots to boondock. With their sleek matte-black Mercedes Sprinter, they can go pretty much anywhere they want.

Both of them work flexible online jobs which they started part-time while still working their full-time “normal” jobs. They were able to get the remote work solidified before quitting their full-time work and then hitting the road, allowing them to travel the country. Awesome!

Brie & Shawn wanted to enjoy being out in nature with their dogs and escape the pricey Seattle-area rent. Their first van was the cheapest they could find, and they soon upgraded to a Sprinter, and finally (for now) their 2019 Ford Transit.

Their story is a good reminder that your first van (or tiny house) might not be your last — and that’s ok! You just have to start somewhere. Now their brand and photography are enough to cover their bills and fund their travel lifestyle. Pretty awesome!

Enjoy the Tiny Home Tours video tour below.

Frankie and Alex got into #vanlife thinking they’d explore for a year and then settle down and buy a house, but they ended up loving it so much they decided to keep going with no plans of stopping anytime soon!

While their first van was an inexpensive build, it was also incredibly rusty and needed a lot of work, so once they knew they loved living on wheels, they chose to buy a second van and make it home.

The build includes a hidden shower and bathroom, a u-shaped dinette/bed and a swivel chair. Enjoy!

Brittani & Adam got married and then though it was time to settle down and do the “adult” thing of holding full-time jobs and renting an apartment, saving for a house. But on their honeymoon they discussed their dreams of jumping into vanlife.

It took three years, but they eventually chased that dream, selling everything and hopping into Clifford (their big red van!). They travel along with Levi, an adorable Aussie pup.

They are such a sweet couple! Enjoy their video tour with Tiny House Giant Journey below.

Star and Cameron are one remarkable couple! Not only did they pay down $70,000 in student loan debt in just a year, they were able to purchase a home, as well. But when the pandemic hit, they found themselves stuck at home because they didn’t live in a safe area for walking around.

At first, they thought they should simply buy a new home in a better area, but after getting debt-free they realized they really didn’t want to jump into a huge mortgage. Then they were laid off and decided #vanlife was the way to go! Just wait until you see their adorable conversion in the Tiny Home Tours interview below.

The couple even admitted that they wandered somewhat from their faith when they were working so much in order to pay off debt and “get rich,” and vanlife has helped ground them once again.

Check out Roberta, Nick & Marissa’s 2019 Ford Transit conversion! They travel with their adorable husky in tow.

They made a decision after some time in the corporate world to find a different kind of work and secure remote jobs. It was then that they decided to hit the road.

Their DIY conversion includes an awesome faux cabinet that houses their composting toilet, as well as an oven for baking! They tucked their Dometic fridge beneath a bench seat, which was a great idea. Watch the full tour below!
