Lisa Franks thought her athletic ambitions were over when a spinal cord injury left her in a wheelchair at only 14 years old, but Paralympians visited her and showed her she could find new ways to do her favorite things. After getting seven medals, a shoulder injury severely altered her life. It took several surgeries to get her out of the house, and that’s when she tried car camping for the first time!

The camping eventually led to her ordering a van and creating an incredible wheelchair-accessible home on wheels. She can navigate the entire van alone, including taking out her mountain bike and surfboard. Watch the video to see how she made her van fit her lifestyle.

Caitlin isn’t the first person to say that van life has helped their mental health, and she won’t be the last! After a divorce, she left her vast, beautiful home and moved into a custom-built van conversion that met all her needs. She feels so much freedom in downsizing and minimizing her belongings.

But just because she’s gone tiny doesn’t mean she’s left behind comfort! Her van has a wet bathroom with an Airhead toilet, beautiful countertops, and a dishwasher, which she loves because it uses little water. Enjoy the tour of this stunning van below.

John Weatherbe works as a professional photographer, and he wanted a van conversion that would take him to remote locations and allow him to get epic nature photos. At first, he tried converting the van himself, but he eventually decided that wasn’t his expertise and he had it professionally finished — and the results are amazing!

He went with an army green exterior and dark gray/wood tone interior. It feels modern, rugged, and cozy! He has a great set-up for storing his gear and “working from home.” Check out the tour below!

Deyana is a former classroom teacher who now teaches virtually. You might remember her skoolie conversion that we showed you, but now she’s living in her self-converted van with her adorable dog. She used a micro-cement product from Spain called Smartcret to cover many of the surfaces in her rig, and the thin layer looks gorgeous and almost adobe-like.

She included a shower in her conversion, with a self-cleaning Nautilus door and a beautiful pebble floor. She has a fixed bed, a spacious garage, and a comfortable workspace. She chose an induction cooktop and a Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro in her kitchen. What do you like most about her van conversion?
