Couple’s Wallpapered Ford Transit Van Conversion


The road to van life hasn’t been easy for this couple. It all started when Daphne outfitted a van for herself and left Matt in New York, so she could go travel. After he spent some time visiting her in the van, he wanted to join her full-time. But, Daphne’s van was totaled in a car crash right after Matt sold his house.

Both homeless, the couple decided to build out a second van and travel together. A professional musician, Daphne performs and teaches remote flute lessons. Matt does freelance drafting for roofing companies. They strayed from the norm in the van world and chose wallpaper rather than shiplap for their walls. Pretty awesome!

    Over 20 minutes of unnecessary yap, yap, blah, blah, blah. OMG, shut up and only talk about what matters. All I had to do is see the length of the video, and the home that looks way too small for them and close goes the video.

    This is so pretty! I love the wallpaper idea, and your wallpaper is lovely. The kitchen is great, and your space saving and stealth designs seem to work well. It looks like a home in which you could be very happy together. Great job!

    I like the color combination. It is a calming brightness that opens the space. Some people pre colors that pop and are too bright for my eyes. Others like a lot of wood but tend to get too dark for my taste. The idea of wallpaper instead of wood helps to cut down on weight which can improve gas mileage and tire wear.
