In 2020, Anton found himself building out a van conversion, largely because some of his best friends were jumping into vanlife, and “you are who your friends are.” Three years ago he couldn’t even hang a picture, but you’d never know based on the incredible rig you’ll see below.

He chose bamboo for the interior, and while the wood alone cost nearly $6K, it leaves the van with such a professional finish! Anton is a music teacher and now builds luxury vans on the side. Enjoy his amazing tour below.

While we love showing off budget builds and how creative people can be with just a little bit of money and a lot of heart, sometimes it’s fun to see what tiny can look like when you aren’t worried about the bank account. This luxury rig from Off Highway Van is their newest design called the “Davey Jackson.” It comes on both a 144 or 170-inch wheelbase, depending on how much room you want.

Designed to go just about anywhere, these rigs have all the best off-grid specs and incredible bells and whistles for nomadic life. And the 170 even allows for a pop-up shower stall or a built-in wardrobe. You can sleep up to 5 people in this rig, with the folding bench seats and even a swivel seat conversion. It starts at $199,999. Check it out below!

Joey’s story isn’t one you’d expect — he nailed the “dream job” of working in mechanical and biomedical engineering for the FBI in Washington, D.C. — and then realized it wasn’t for him! He got a different job working as a software engineer that ended up going remote in 2020 — and before he knew it, Joey was buying and converting a van.

He’s lived in the van you’ll see below for three years on and off. In the “off” time, he’s been backpacking around the world, living even more simply than he does in his rig. He designed it to stand up to all kinds of weather, and just wait until you see the neat way he included a shower, closet, and pantry into his home on wheels.

JK and Kim live part-time in a Ford Transit van which they purchased second-hand and are actually the third owners of. Despite the van being built out when they first got it, they’ve gone through about 4 layout iterations to get it to the point it is today — and that’s come at the pricetag of nearly $100,000.

But the couple don’t regret the cost, because they love escaping the city and enjoying the outdoors. Most of their travel is spent on weekends away within only an hour and two from their home, but they have taken awesome longer trips as well. While they aren’t planning on going full-time just yet, they love the freedom that weekend tiny living offers them.

Alexi works as a travel nurse, and a van allows her to have a home away from home while she goes from spot to spot. She initially thought she’d get a cheap old van and throw a mattress in it, but her dad encouraged her to “do it right” and that she did! Her van is lovely with all the features of a home — including a bathroom with a shower!

She chose the controversial “convertible” layout, with a dinette that becomes her bed. This makes the van seem extra open and lovely! The inclusion of a back table that slides out from the garage is a great way to expand the living space outdoors.

After giving van life a trial run to escape the pollution from California wildfires, she and her husband Brian decided to do van life full-time!

Abby’s love for an adventurous lifestyle led her to convert her own van! She fit a bike, paddleboard, camping gear, and tools under her bed, so she can enjoy the outdoors. Her conversion was a DIY build, that cost her $37,000. She used plenty of reclaimed materials to keep costs down, but the van’s aesthetic isn’t compromised by her frugality!

She has a fixed queen-sized bed in the back of her van, and a workspace in the front where she does her full-time marketing work. Her kitchen has a sink made from an industrial coffee pot, and a two-burner propane cooktop. Enjoy her energy and excitement for life in the video below.
