Do you remember this family’s tiny house tour? We told you they also have a van and sailboat they travel in, and today you’ll be getting an insider look at their DIY van conversion (that was also totally debt-free!).

They did some super creative stuff with this conversion, including creating an elevator bed for the grown-ups that comes down at night and a living/eating/car-seat-holding area that turns into a giant kid bed. Let us know what your favorite part is below!

Nate and Maud might be one of the most adorable couples we’ve seen before! After meeting in Thailand just before the world shut down and then getting married so they could stay together, the couple chose to build out a van and hit the road with their full-time remote jobs. And they have no intentions of ever quitting #vanlife!

Their rig is almost entirely white on the inside, including a custom whitewashed tongue-in-groove ceiling. They have “long-ways” bed setup so they can stretch out (they’re both over 5’10”), and even a hide-away shower they pull out for 5 to 10 minutes a day. What’s your favorite part?

Sarah had experience traveling and camping, but her launch into vanlife wasn’t as predetermined as one might expect! It was a bit on a whim when she was tired of apartment living that she went and bought her van. Thankfully she’s been working remotely for a long time, so she had the job part all figured out.

While she’s honest about the not-so-fun parts of living in a van, she has no intention of going back to an apartment. And when you see her beautiful van you’ll see why! (And yes, there’s a toilet).

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.

Candyss was used to her life being defined by her military and police force obligations, so when she decided to transition out of that career, she had to find what freedom meant for her.

That led her to van life! She started traveling during the pandemic and now is on the road full-time. She didn’t bother with a huge kitchen because she doesn’t cook, and instead she made space for the things she wants (her clothes, beauty products and awesome giant plant). Her energy and positivity make her tour worth watching!

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.

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.
