This is the story of Carl and Maddie’s converted ambulance. Yes, they bought a retired ambulance and turned it into their traveling home.

The great part is, they really didn’t have to modify the vehicle all that much and it already provides loads of storage. Have you ever thought of buying an ambulance to convert into a motorhome? Seems like a pretty cool idea to me, especially if you sort of fear the ‘conversion’ part, since an ambulance can oftentimes work as-is. What do you think?

This is the story of Brett Belan’s DIY Solar-Powered VW EV Bus. He bought an old VW bus and turned it into his very own solar-powered electric vehicle (this is a link to ANOTHER story). Can you imagine having your own electric vehicle that you can charge using the sun wherever you may be? One that… You built/converted into electric yourself? Yup, that’s what Brett did.

This is Michelle “MJ” Boyle. She’s a mother of two who recently built her own tiny home on wheels to retire in (sort of). Michelle plans on building more tiny homes so that she can rent them out for income.

Her THOW has what she calls a “modern nostalgia” style. In fact, Michelle spent two years collecting and refurbishing appliances from the mid 1940’s and early 1950’s for her kitchen. How awesome is that?

Anyway, I’m able to put together this post and share it with you thanks to the incredible Dylan Magaster on YouTube so be sure to subscribe to his videos (they’re amazing)!

If you’re looking for some inspiration for living on the road cheaply, look no further than Dylan Magaster because he built an epic life with a $5500 van.

Jenna from Tiny House Giant Journey met up with Dylan, who converted his 1994 G20 van into an off-grid home for less than $5,500 (that includes the cost for the van itself). Because he works online (check out his YouTube channel here), he can make money while traveling coast to coast. Watch his tour with Jenna below to get all the details about his off-grid rig. Enjoy!
