Matt, Amy, and their two young children live full-time in their van conversion, which they DIYed in South Africa where they live. The van has an innovative bed set-up in the back, which allows all four of them to get some shut-eye!

The kitchen takes up a large portion of the van so that they can cook great meals for the family while on the road. They also have a living room space in the front of the van that converts into a dinette, and has seats for the children for travel. You’re going to love this tour!

Becca, Tyler, and their four children spend their weekends traveling to amazing spots for skiing, mountain biking, and hiking adventures. The family loves outdoor sports, and was looking for a way to make getting to great places easier and more convenient. They weren’t up for a DIY build, but they came across Vandoit and had the most incredible rig made up for them!

This van sleeps 6 and safely seats all 6 family members, with bench seats that can be removed when they arrive on-site to allow more space to walk around the van. They have a pop-up shower stall, outdoor kitchen, and a “toilet tent” they set up upon arrival. What do you think of their home on wheels?

Tommy and Ashley met in Hawaii and after doing some assorted mission work, they met another couple who lived in a van, and they were inspired to try out nomadic life for themselves. Highly averse to debt, they decided to take a loan out on a 0% interest credit card and complete the build for the $15K they were approved for, promising to pay it back before the interest kicked in.

Amazingly, they did just that and were able to sell their first van, pay off the credit card and then use the funds to convert a second van (seen below). This van was designed with their toddler son in mind, and they were able to include a little play cubby for him, along with a bench seat that gives them an extra safe spot to put his car seat. What do you think of their conversion?

Mariajose, Chase, & their baby daughter Isla all live in this awesome sprinter van. Before they had a baby, the couple had lived nomadically for four years — first in a skoolie and then in a van. Some people thought they’d settle down after having a child, but instead they’re working on renovating the van to meet the needs of their expanding family.

In the video below, you can see their van pre-renovation. The neatest feature in their rig is the Murphy Bed, which is still pretty rare in vans on the whole. But they also have a bathroom (which they actually use) with real tile and a self-cleaning door. Let us know what you think!

Do you remember this family’s tiny house tour? We told you they also have a van and sailboat they travel in, and today you’ll be getting an insider look at their DIY van conversion (that was also totally debt-free!).

They did some super creative stuff with this conversion, including creating an elevator bed for the grown-ups that comes down at night and a living/eating/car-seat-holding area that turns into a giant kid bed. Let us know what your favorite part is below!

This adorable family started their nomadic lifestyle in a bus — but it was too big for them! Originally, the couple was looking for freedom, tired of working tirelessly to afford rent in LA. Then they traded the bus for a minivan and absolutely loved traveling and the lower cost of living.

With their daughter getting older, they upgraded to this 2006 Sprinter van which they converted beautifully into a functional space for the three of them (and their cat!). There’s an IKEA couch in the back which quickly converts into a family bed in the evenings. Oh, and a basketball hoop pops up from the roof when they are stationary — so cool!

We’ve seen plenty of Skoolie families, or tiny house families, but a van family? They are few and far between! And this one didn’t just jump into tiny living a year or two ago — they’ve been doing it for seven whole years. They’ve proved any naysayers wrong, showing that a family of 4 with two school-aged kids can happily share a Sprinter as a home.

The kids’ even have their own room in what’s normally the “garage.” And yes, this home has a toilet and shower! We got to interview mom, Julia, and she said she can’t imagine being as close to her kids if they lived a “normal” life in suburbia. And because they’ve been parenting tiny since their oldest was one, she said she doesn’t know any other kind of life with kids!

Be sure to read our Q&A with her at the end of the post, and follow the family’s amazing van journey on Instagram.
