This is the VEDUNA campervan converted by Dipa Vasudeva Das. It’s a large van conversion renovated with mostly natural materials like hemp insulation and a variety of beautiful woods which you can see at the bottom of this post.
Talk about a portable tiny house. This is a fantastic “Stealth Sprinter” turned motorhome.
From the outside, you’d never know this typical-looking van includes a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room! When on the road, you’d mistake it for any old business transporting supplies.
When you go inside, you’ll find an entire home with clean white walls and pretty red cushions. There’s a full/queen bed that doubles as couch with a pull-out table, a diesel cooktop, and even a hideaway toilet. The entire van runs on solar, so you never have to plug it in or rely on others during your travel. You can walk around on the vinyl flooring and store necessities underneath the couch benches. Best part? It was all done DIY, so you can do it too!
Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
Van Turned into Beautiful Stealth Sprinter Motorhome
This is Carlos’ fantastic tiny home in a van. He has lived in the house by choice for the past three years, enjoying living with less and making an income while travelling through Chile, his country. He converted the van into his living space all by himself.
Outside, you’ll notice a fairly standard Ford Econoline E-350, 1981 van – that’s what makes the inside so incredible!
When you go inside, you’ll find his home office, which he works from while travelling his country. The van’s interior includes laminate wood cabinets with blue fabric accents. Carlos said he wanted the van to be a hybrid between a mobile office and a campervan, so he could start “living with less to enjoy more.” The dinette transforms into a bed, and he has a sink kitchen area across from his desk.
In late 2009 the downturn in the economy dramatically changed the overall substance of 30+ year business professional, Brenda Curtiss’s life.
In her words, “Even though I had always dreamed about and somewhat planned for the day I could be ‘free’ to full-time in a small RV or camper van, the need to do so financially, seemed to suddenly be thrust upon me when the once thriving Tax Planning Firm I managed for years, had to close due to the economic downturn.
I had bought a 2000 Astro High-Top Conversion Van with my meager savings and started my full-time vandwelling journey in it at a membership vacation community in the scenic North GA Mountains where I had bought memberships in better times.
When I started out I was on shore power (electric hook-up) the majority of the time and not very well equipped without it. It was a beautifully scenic area, but after I had explored it extensively, and entertained family and friends who came to visit throughout the year (staying in the cabins there) the excitement began to wane and the nomadic side of me that had always longed to explore God’s amazing artistry began to rise up in me once again.

By the end of 2010 I was ready to hit the road to travel across the USA in my little campervan! Some good friends helped me get a good battery system set up and further ready my van to live more self-sustainably.
