I don’t know that I’ve ever heard of a vanlife couple who spent as much time and forethought regarding making the move into a vehicle! They spent a full year plotting and planning and discussing all the things that could go wrong in order to prepare themselves. Now that they’ve been living tiny for over a year, they consider their van a “sanctuary” no matter where they go!

The result? An awesome van that perfectly suits their stealthy needs — Becky can take the van to work as a travel nurse and park at the hospital, and Drew works from the van (or a co-working space) as a digital nomad. Their bed design is a brilliant middle ground between “take it all apart” and permanent.

Lefty is a thyroid cancer survivor on the trip of his life visiting all the national parks! He rock climbs, bikes, and camps out in each park until he’s seen it all, and then he moves on to the next location. When he’s done with all the physical exertion of his day, he crawls into his super comfy fixed bed and calls it a night.

He has a cool outdoor shower set-up and a composting toilet box that doubles as his swivel chair footrest. But one of his special upgrades to the Ram ProMaster was the custom bug netting that he installed. While it’s not cheap, he said it’s one of the better investments he made for van life. Enjoy the tour!

Lauren had been dreaming of #vanlife for awhile, but thought it would never happen. But when lockdown hit, she got her chance. She managed to convince her dad to help her build out the interior of her Ford Transit while she was living at home.

They did an absolutely amazing job! The inside is a lovely blend of turquoise blue & white finishes, and the tin roof is such a nice touch. Just wait until you see the outdoor table they made, though. Lauren got in touch and did a great Q&A with us, so be sure to check that out after the video tour. She now travels with her boyfriend around the East Coast.

Emily traveled Australia in a suitcase and lived in a 300-square-foot apartment before hopping on the #vanlife wagon, so you might assume she’d transition into her van without much trouble. But she was honest — it took about 5 months before she really felt like her vehicle was “home,” and it’s harder to live in your car than you’d think!

Her candid interview tells it like it really is — and she shares her #solofemaletraveler tips for avoiding murderers in the back of your van (with a tinge of dark humor, of course). Right now she has a full-time job (with an onsite shower) and stays parked in one spot most of the time, but she’s hoping to hit the road at some point and explore all Canada has to offer.

Brad and Shyla wanted to switch things up in life, so they went down the van life rabbit-hole on YouTube, purchased a van, and then moved in — when all they had in it was a platform and their Tempurpedic mattress! Neither had any construction experience, but the finished product is gorgeous.

They included an oven (pretty rare in vans) so professional baker Brad could cook bread in his Dutch Oven! Shyla is a professional makeup artist but works remotely to support them now that the build is complete. I think you’ll love what you see below.

When Beverly first got into vanlife three years ago, she kept things simple and to a tight budget just to make sure she really wanted to live in a van. You might remember her last van tour we showed off here. Well now she’s had some time to make renovations and wanted to share her upgrades!

She’s a year older now, and even happier than before with her van. She upgraded the kitchen, power system, shower and bed platform, and added an induction cooktop and swivel chair to the inside. You’ll find her signature tassle-and-gem decor still covers everything, and her Brad Pitt pillow has his rightful spot on her bed.

No one would argue that vanlife isn’t minimalism, but Amanda takes simple living to a whole new level! About 8 years ago she decided that instead of working more to pay rent, she was going to hand in her keys and camp. Someone gifted her a van, and she never looked back.

Her van is incredibly simple — a tiny butane stove, no heat, and a small string of solar-powered lights — and those are the upgrades! But she’s perfectly content with her home and loves that she isn’t stressed about money. She does free things; she forages; and she doesn’t pay rent!

Well you don’t see this everyday! A family of FOUR living in their Extended Ram Promaster Camper Van. Kirt & Jen have two school-aged sons, and they sold their home in Tennessee so they could pursue full-time vanlife.

While it might seem crazy to fit four people into 80 square feet, this family has loved their last 7 months on the road, realizing just how little they need to be happy and how awesome experiences are for their kids. Enjoy the tour below.

Steph had been backpacking for months when the pandemic hit and sent her home to Canada. After a couple months of isolation in her Montreal apartment, she was going stir-crazy and hopped in her car to go camp around. But she quickly found that it was, in fact, challenging to live out of her vehicle with everything closed around her.

So she found a van for sale that had already been converted, and she bought it! While she’s made some adjustments to make it work for her full-time digital nomad lifestyle, she really loves some of the original features, like the fold-out bed and her permanent normal-sized shower stall. Enjoy the tour!
