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.”

It’s always fun to find something completely different, and that’s what you get with the Haaks Opperland campervan. This is actually an itty-bitty two-storey cabin that sits on the bed of a compact Fiat flatbed truck.

Simply drive the home to your location and drop it off. The 13-foot-long building then pops open, and the truck is free to drive wherever you need to go!

I’ll confess up front: It’s not even remotely affordable at more than $140,000 (especially since you’d have to ship it overseas — it’s built by a Dutch company), but the idea is brilliant and maybe it’ll catch on!

This is a low mileage 1992 Thomas Built Bus Conversion that’s SOLD. It’s Don Miller’s bus conversion.

It’s a wonderful motorhome that’s completely custom and remodeled. And it’s great for boondocking too because it’s set up to be completely off-grid functional. Pretty cool, right? There’s a fun story behind it too, so I hope you’ll enjoy it below. Thanks.

This is the story of Madelyn and Caleb and their van that they imported from Japan. They spent two months renovating it, and hit the road! It’s a 1993 Toyota van that they completely refurbished inside-out. It has a happy and vintage look to it and I think they did a really nice job of personalizing it for themselves.

So far, they’ve been on the road for over 5 months and love it! They’re traveling with their cat and are enjoying a once in a lifetime experience they will likely cherish forever. You can follow them on @patchworkcanteen on Instagram! What do you think of their bus and lifestyle? Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

This is the story of how a 23-year-old went tiny his own way using a 1991 32-foot Georgie Boy Motorhome that he bought for $1,800 and proceeded to renovate.

The end result is an affordable, mobile, and cozy motorhome that was built at a price that’s hard very hard to beat (a total cost of about $5,000). What do you think? Could a motorhome renovation be worth it? Here’s how Riley sees it.

This is a two-story 8×8 off-road motorhome from SLRV Expedition Vehicles. When 4×4 is not enough, there is of course, an 8×8 option out there. Not sure how much it costs, but we’re sure the price is far from tiny.

The second level consists mainly of a large sleeping area, kind of like a bunk room or large loft in a cabin. The main level features the kitchen, dining, ceiling bed, and bathroom access.
