Young Entrepreneurs Living in a Camper Van to Save Money and Travel

Eamon & Bec are a couple of Toronto-based entrepreneurs who live full-time in their DIY camper van conversion to save money and travel while they run their business — Chai Wala.

When we asked them why they chose to live in a van, they said it was partly because the internet makes it possible to work from anywhere, partly because of inflated real estate prices in Toronto, but also because they love adventure and don’t want to be tied down right now.

Eamon converted a 2008 Dodge Sprinter van into a beautiful tiny home on wheels in just under a month.

They have a functional kitchen complete with a small fridge, a propane cooktop, and even space for a Vitamix blender.

Their couch converts into a bed at night, and also provides storage for their tea deliveries.

They don’t have a toilet or shower but they do have a gym membership so they can use the shower and toilet facilities there every day.

They have a great YouTube channel where they share videos about their camper van conversion and vlogs about their adventures in the van.

    Love the van. I would HAVE TO HAVE A TOILET!! I am 59, have had 4 children, so need to use a toilet more than once a day when I visit the gym.

    Looks nice and livable for them but sorry not for me I am not as young and want a might more space. But it does look well planned out and very nice.
