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 Ark Tiny House by Willowbee Tiny Homes. It’s a tiny home on wheels with solar panels, double loft, skylight, large bathroom, large kitchen, and lots of natural light (windows).
The Ark that you see here is the 26′ model. This particular one has many upgrades which tallied the total cost up to $89,000, even though it starts at $65,000 and is also available in 28′ and 30′. Learn more below!
They’ve been living, traveling, and working out of their own van conversion for a while now, and have recently had the opportunity to upgrade to a customized van conversion which you’re getting to see right here and now. Yes, they designed and built it themselves and I think you might find this to be one of the most beautiful and most well thought out van conversions out there. Let me know what you think in the comments.
We are selling our converted school bus after our road trip around USA and Canada has come to an end. And now it is time for us to move towards new adventure and this is why we are selling. We have put all our love and energy building this bus. That’s why we wish to see it go to a family that will take care of it and will take it to new adventures.
The bus has been designed to live autonomously, off-the-grid, and boondocking for more than 2 weeks in the wild. We built a state of the art tiny house on wheels. Also we designed it to be modular so you can host friends and family wherever you are and whenever they want to join your adventures. You can check out the work that we accomplished on our instagram beautifulmorning-dot-life.
