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.

Meet Nat & Don, a couple who wanted to go tiny — and then chose to go even tinier! They started out with a bus conversion, but after some time realized it was too big, and made it tricky to find spots to boondock. With their sleek matte-black Mercedes Sprinter, they can go pretty much anywhere they want.

Both of them work flexible online jobs which they started part-time while still working their full-time “normal” jobs. They were able to get the remote work solidified before quitting their full-time work and then hitting the road, allowing them to travel the country. Awesome!

This is one awesome woman! She has been living solo van life now for four years — just because she wanted to. Which is the best reason. Her travels are funded by selling essential oils, which she was doing pre-van-life and translated well to life on the road.

Her only complaint about living in a van is her struggle with getting mail delivered! She chose to outfit her all-electric van with Marmoleum floors, Paper Stone (recycled paper) countertops, and ApplyPly drawers. There’s even an e-bike in her garage!

Ed had dreamed of traveling the United States since she was a teenager. She grew up on a farm and hadn’t seen much else out there. In her 20s she got distracted by doing normal life.

But at age 30, she decided it was time to find a van and get out there. She did an awesome job insulating her van with blankets and black out curtains — and her van is totally electricity-free, which is quite impressive. She also has a manual pump for water, and just uses a cooler for her food.

Morgan invited her now-boyfriend Logan to hop on her van journey. She was relieved to have help with her build and lifestyle, and he was eager to live off the land all over the country after living that way in Louisiana — hunting and fishing for his own food.

Their van really breaks the mold of typical Promaster conversions, with it’s awesome tin ceiling and futon-style bed that creates a whole different layout than most vans. The build out wasn’t expensive, and they used lots of reclaimed items or cheap lumber from Home Depot to create a stellar home on wheels.

Make sure to watch the full video tour at the end of the post! Thank you to Tiny Home Tours.

Eris was living in New York City and enjoyed her job and lifestyle, but when COVID hit, she lost her job, and she had to move back home to Colorado. It was there that she started camping again and getting back to nature, and the entire process started to heal her of a lot of stress she’d been carrying during her city life.

A friend recommended she jump into van life, and while she hesitated at first, Eris eventually purchased a van and built it out and has been on the road now for 7 months. Her van is awesome, with tons of basket storage for clothes and food!

She loves cooking, so she has an oven to bake in and oodles of spice storage. Enjoy her Tiny Home Tours interview below.

Rachel doesn’t quite remember what inspired her to pursue #vanlife, but at some point in college she started saying she wanted to live in a van, and then she was committed to seeing the idea through.

She says van living has provided the “spice” she needed in her life. For the past year she’s been all over the U.S. exploring. While eventually she’d like to put down roots and have her own pottery studio, she manages to sell some of her work as she travels!

Enjoy the Tiny Home Tours video below, and follow her on Instagram.
