This is the story of Route Del Sol, an all-electric, solar-powered motorhome. This DIY motorhome build is very likely the most powerful solar-powered campervan in the world today and this is how it came to be.

Since that very first exchange with the ticket booth operator, I have grown much better at explaining just what it is I am driving. In the most technical way possible (for me) I exclaim that, this is a fully electric 2010 International EStar, it’s an ex-Pacific Gas & Electric owned cargo van converted into a DIY solar-powered electric campervan.”

This is the incredible story of how Joel and Keegan of Route Del Sol built a solar-powered all-electric motorhome in only two months. Incredible, right?

The downfall? Well, even with all of the solar panels, it’s not enough energy to keep moving every day unless you found somewhere to charge directly. Still pretty amazing, though, right?

This is a rural Colorado tiny house lot for rent.

There’s space for one tiny home and the owner can wake up every morning to stunning mountain views.

The 1/2 acre lot sits on rural ranch acreage and shower and laundry facilities, electric hook up, fresh water delivery and internet are all available. It’s five miles from Hotchkiss, Colorado.

Have you ever thought about getting rid of your car and maybe using your bicycle to get around?

If you have, you probably haven’t gone through with it because:

  • You’ve got to carry stuff around
  • The places you travel to are too far
  • The weather would beat you up
  • You don’t think you’re in good enough shape

Today I’m showing you this awesome utility bike that’s made by Yuba. It can carry up to 400 pounds of stuff! That’s right, people have hauled/moved washing machines with these bad boys.

So you can bet this is a real replacement for your car–it’s not your ordinary bicycle.
