This is the story of Ody, a 39-year-old Mercedes 307D van conversion that the couple originally bought in Germany. The couple, Dana and Lou, taught themselves how to convert the van thanks to videos on YouTube.

It took them 6 months to complete, and now they’re traveling Europe and living out their van life dream. Dana and Lou named their van Ody and outfitted it with a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and plenty of smart storage. What do you think? Could you see yourself living and traveling in a van like this?

This is to let you know about this 2017 Ram Promaster 1500 Van Conversion that’s for sale out of Boerne, Texas. It’s listed over at Conversion Trader (cool website!) for $49,000.

This one has 28,750 miles on it, a 6-cylinder engine, and was used for a 3-month ski trip through Colorado, Utah, Montana, Washington, Oregon, California, and the Canadian Powder Highway. The current owners bought it new and converted it to suit two people comfortably. With new and used Class B’s being so expensive, conversions like this one can be a more affordable option. Or better yet, you can use the free inspiration here to start your own van conversion for much less.

She bought a van, moved in with her two Scotties (named Flanagan and Campbell), and then eventually had it insulated and converted by purchasing a kit from a company in Colorado that specializes in van conversions! So here’s how it all went down.

I (and my two scotties, Flanagan and Campbell) set off from Seattle to Colorado Springs in mid-October to have the kit installed at Wayfarer vans.
