Traveling Couple’s Custom Sprinter Van Life


This post contains affiliate links.

This adventurous couple met at a climbing gym and, not too long afterward, did a 4-weekend conversion of their first inexpensive van. They used that rig for two years as a weekender van but then started the search for a Sprinter so they could do a full conversion. Once that van was complete, they decided to hit the road full-time.

Alex is a travel physical therapist, and Sean is a traveling carpenter, so their garage is full of well-organized tools that allow him to work on the road. They also prioritized a bathroom in the van with a toilet that slides away when not needed. What do you think of their home on wheels?

Highlights:

  • Shortly after Alex and Sean met at a climbing gym, Alex mentioned the idea of van life, and they converted an inexpensive rig for weekend trips.
  • The van has a convertible dinette that becomes another bed/lounge area when they aren’t playing board games or eating.
  • Their fridge is cleverly tucked into the side of their kitchen, with an excellent wooden slat woodworking design on the side.
  • They chose a two-burner propane cooktop and a beautiful small farmhouse sink for cooking.
  • Since their old van required Sean to sleep sideways, they put an almost full queen inside their full-time rig.
