These days Roman and Ioana use their 1990 VW Van for weekend trips around their home country of Switzerland, but they previously used the van — named Leni — for a full year of travel around Europe.

One of the coolest features of this van is the back bathroom. It’s accessible by the garage doors and makes it easy to use the bathroom or shower — if you pick a secluded spot you can even leave the doors open!

Additionally the van has a self-built bike rack and a super cool folding bed that allows for extra headroom in the snug living quarters. Check out the awesome video tour and interview with Tiny Home Tours below.

When it comes to stealth vanlife, the Dodge Sprinter van is high on the list of “best vans” to choose. This one, for sale in Northeast Portland, has already been outfitted inside with some really neat modular finishes that go from benches, to table, to bed with some clever folding!

While you’ll need to add kitchen accessories if you want to travel in this full-time, it’s an awesome start to your van life expedition! You can get all the details via Craigslist and at the end of our post!

Lindsey jumped on the #vanlife bandwagon after spending some time as a nanny in Italy, and it’s been just over a year since she started living and traveling in her van.

This lifestyle means she can work different gigs here and there and then jump back on the road and travel with what she’s saved up. Her dad (who has been flipping homes for 40 years) helped her created her first van, which has a sunny yellow kitchen and the most gorgeous Frida-inspired quilt created by her mother.

While she ended up living with her boyfriend and his parents during quarantine, she spent the time outfitting a second van build to sell (check it out here!). We got to do a Q&A with her which you’ll definitely want to read at the end of the post.

This 2017 Sprinter Van looks magazine ready with live-edge counter tops and a Moroccan tile backsplash that’s absolutely glamorous. Chris and Lisa explain in a tiny space it’s easier to afford those high-end touches they’d never have been able to afford in a larger home!

Their excellent solar and internet setup allow them to work from the van while they travel, which means they aren’t planning on quitting van life anytime soon! They even run a small business from the van creating enamelware.

Allison over at Tiny Home Tours interviewed the couple and did a video tour which you’ll want to watch to get all the details about their life!

Emma was looking for complete and total freedom, as well as a way to live more sustainably and create less waste. Vanlife seemed like the perfect lifestyle for her, so she bought a camper van and gutted it, spending a year making it into her home.

Originally from Connecticut, Emma has taken the van cross-country and is enjoying her nomadic lifestyle (although COVID-19 has, unsurprisingly, put a wrench in her travel plans and reduced the number of showers she gets!). Check out the awesome video tour from Allison over at Tiny Home Tours.  You can follow Emma’s travels on Instagram here.

Here’s your chance to jump into vanlife, and support a good cause while you’re at it. Lindsey Maxwell (@wander_woman_go) has been living the #vanlife for a while now, but used her time during COVID-19 after she lost her job to create a second van with her partner to sell.

But it’s not all for profit: She’ll also be donating a portion of the profits to No Kid Hungry and the National Alliance to End Homelessness, which is pretty awesome!

All the details on the van build, for sale on Craigslist, are at the end of the post (including the price!). Check out the pictures first ….
