Patty is a truly remarkable woman. After spending four years caring for her mother 24/7, she found herself wondering what to do next when her mom passed away. YouTube led her to vanlife, and eventually, she found herself working with a builder to create the perfect van home.

The van layout is great, with a hidden fridge under a flip-up butcher block, a collapsible shower, and an emergency toilet under a bench seat. When not in use, all of those features hide away for a seamless beach cottage look. What do you think?

Some 20 years ago, Vari spent time traveling around Australia in a campervan. A couple of years ago, she found herself ready to return to that lifestyle, so she found an RV and converted it into an off-grid rig to enable her to travel around her native Scotland.

She travels with her adorable dog, and her cozy home is functional and beautiful. She has a wood-burning stove, an oven and range, a compact bathroom, and a comfortable living space. We had the honor of doing a Q&A with her, which you can read below the photo tour.

This is Sophie’s second interview with Tiny Home Tours. Two years ago she was a full-time consultant living full-time in her van. Since then, she’s traveled internationally, spent some time in Baja, quit her full-time job, and started homesteading on a friend’s hunting land in Kentucky. Oh, and she gutted and re-did her whole van!

The van now has super groovy cabinets covered in 70s-inspired wallpaper. She swapped her stationary bed for a U-shaped dinette that converts at night, and she replaced her giant upper cabinets with lots more with a smaller footprint. Now she can travel in her van part-time and then live in the tiny shed she’s converting the rest of the time.

Victory has been living nomadically for nearly a decade. It all started after she turned 18 and went to four different overseas universities, moving from apartment to apartment and seeing the Continent. She had moved nearly 20 times before she settled into her van.

At first, Victory planned to travel the U.S. by hitchhiking across the country, but when she saw people were traveling in their vans, she decided to take that approach. Now she works a couple of months a year to support her travels, and spends most of her time digging for and breaking open fascinating rocks.

Since she was young, Jenn has always been hustling — working multiple jobs and rarely slowing down. She became the CEO of a chain of her own salons right as March 2020 shut down Chicago for three months. With all that time to finally stop and reflect, Jenn realized she was ready to pivot.

Most people didn’t expect a successful businesswoman to jump into #vanlife, but Jenn didn’t care! She’s able to travel to her different salons and do conferences while bringing her home with her. The “soft and sweet” vibe inside her van gave her a safe place when “the world was on fire.”
