This is the story of how Anna, a seasoned traveler, ended up becoming a van dweller thanks to Tiny Home Tours/YouTube. When she first converted her van, it was a standard low-top conversion, and she used it like that for a while. After a while, Anna decided that she wanted it to feel more like home, so she wanted to get herself a high top van.
After finding out how much money she would lose trading in her van, Anna looked into a company called Fiberine that would raise the roof on her current van for about $5,000 including the windows and additional framing the job would require. So she originally bought the van for about $24,000 used, and proceeded to spend approximately $31,000, for a total of about $55,000 to turn it into a tiny house, including the cost of turning it into a hightop van.

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?
