Back in high school, Alexandria dreamed of van life and travel via her Pinterest board, but it took the events of 2020, a job change, and a lot of gusto to get her to sell her vehicle and purchase her Ford Transit that she now calls home! Alexandria isn’t afraid to be honest about the struggles of living in a van, and about how many times she has ripped out and redone certain parts of her van to make it almost perfect for her lifestyle!

She replaced her DIY toilet with a Nature’s Head. She took out a wall of tile that didn’t fit her vibe. She spent hours upon hours creating a stunning ceiling and fitting an upper cabinet to the Transit’s extreme curvature. But now? She has a functional and tidy space that works for her four-day/10-hour workweek. She spends her long weekends hiking and biking all around the country!

For people who have grown up in a close family or always been in a monogamous relationship of some kind, jumping into solo #vanlife can feel terrifying and nearly impossible. That’s what Melody thought before she took the plunge.

Now she feels empowered and happy living in her van with its super-deep sink, closet space, and mini-library. At 5’6″ she can comfortably sleep sideways in the van and she’s been loving working in Baja with her remote writing work.

Candyss was used to her life being defined by her military and police force obligations, so when she decided to transition out of that career, she had to find what freedom meant for her.

That led her to van life! She started traveling during the pandemic and now is on the road full-time. She didn’t bother with a huge kitchen because she doesn’t cook, and instead she made space for the things she wants (her clothes, beauty products and awesome giant plant). Her energy and positivity make her tour worth watching!

When Dee needed a home post-divorce, she chose this fantastic Ford Transit van which she turned into her “Lady Bug Out” house on wheels. She has her own space she can use for travelling, and she heads back to her 14-year-old son’s house when it’s her time to have him. That way he never has to move homes, but she gets to explore! What a great idea.

You’re going to love her tidy, well-organized space that manages to meet all of her needs and somehow still feel spacious!

This is one awesome woman! She has been living solo van life now for four years — just because she wanted to. Which is the best reason. Her travels are funded by selling essential oils, which she was doing pre-van-life and translated well to life on the road.

Her only complaint about living in a van is her struggle with getting mail delivered! She chose to outfit her all-electric van with Marmoleum floors, Paper Stone (recycled paper) countertops, and ApplyPly drawers. There’s even an e-bike in her garage!

Ed had dreamed of traveling the United States since she was a teenager. She grew up on a farm and hadn’t seen much else out there. In her 20s she got distracted by doing normal life.

But at age 30, she decided it was time to find a van and get out there. She did an awesome job insulating her van with blankets and black out curtains — and her van is totally electricity-free, which is quite impressive. She also has a manual pump for water, and just uses a cooler for her food.

Linnea’s cabin-style van build is amazingly cozy! Even though this was the first thing she had *ever* built, the only thing she really regrets is the size of her sink. The whole van is filled with natural wood and wood grain, including her live-edge slab desk that also becomes her outdoor table.

Because she’s known for a long time that she wanted to pursue van life, she made choices that would ultimately make the decision an easier transition. First, she had an online fitness and nutrition business, but her YouTube channel has become so popular it pays her bills now!

Eris was living in New York City and enjoyed her job and lifestyle, but when COVID hit, she lost her job, and she had to move back home to Colorado. It was there that she started camping again and getting back to nature, and the entire process started to heal her of a lot of stress she’d been carrying during her city life.

A friend recommended she jump into van life, and while she hesitated at first, Eris eventually purchased a van and built it out and has been on the road now for 7 months. Her van is awesome, with tons of basket storage for clothes and food!

She loves cooking, so she has an oven to bake in and oodles of spice storage. Enjoy her Tiny Home Tours interview below.
