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.

Joe and Lindsay are on their second van conversion, and their experience shines all throughout this build. They added some amazing features such as archways to the bathroom and bedroom, a full bed with bump outs so you can sleep stretched out, and a dazzling quartz countertop!

Perhaps the coolest feature in this van is the treated cedar shower with a hide-away toilet. If you’ve ever wanted a wet bath but not a wet toilet, you’re going to want to watch this video! Oh, and the van is for sale now if you want it.

We’ve seen tons of van conversions, but the Nevis van conversion from Brown Bird and Company has some truly one-of-a-kind features. The L-shaped couch really stands out, and there’s a wet bath partitioning off the double bed in the back of the conversion.

Unlike most conversions, the kitchen is in the front of the van across the cab. This makes the inside of the van feel particularly wide open! We got to interview Laura, one of the three masterminds of the company, below, so don’t miss that.

Stacey wanted to live nomadically even before it was popular, but hesitated until two years ago, when she finally found a van and chased her dream!

She practices Buddhism and meditation and made sure her van fit her lifestyle. Most of her indoor time she spends at her bench and slide-out table. As a vegan, she doesn’t cook a ton, but has a cute little kitchen for preparing plant-based meals. Enjoy her tour!

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.

Maddi’s former job had her traveling all over the world, but she hadn’t seen much of her home country of Australia. It was time to change that, so Maddi turned to van life.

She’s been on the road enjoying all kinds of adventure activities — from spearing fish to scuba diving — ever since. Her Volkswagen high-top transporter is her home on wheels. Read her story in her own words below!

Josiah had a successful career in Silicone Valley, but was ready for more! So about 6 years ago he decided to become a nomad, and was surprised at the stigma that accompanied his choice. Still, he regrets nothing and loves what he does outside his van more than his rig itself.

His 1982 Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon is a super cool green machine, with a number of excellent after-market upgrades. He has some dreams to redo the kitchen and make the space even more livable. What do you think?

Allie is one amazing woman — she’s been #vanlifing for 13 years in a number of self-built rigs, and she also built a chalet which they rent out on Airbnb. She met Dan in Baja about three years ago and the couple started traveling together. While they weren’t expecting to add a newborn to the mix, they are still traveling with their little daughter in tow!

Their van has an awesome garage area to fit all the gear they need for their many adventure sports, and they found a great three-across front seat for the van, so they could safely (and legally) travel with a carseat. A pull-out bed addition will give the baby a place to sleep for the next couple years.

Steph is a full-time vanlifer who knows what she wants! A microwave, so she doesn’t have to cook, and a big enough water tank and hot water heater for daily showers. The van she built with her husband, Alejo, proves you can be a little “spoiled” and still live in a van.

The couple actually rented vans for vacations for a few years before they got remote jobs and were able to buy and convert their own. Now they’re loving traveling in Alaska with their three gorgeous dogs.
