From the outside, you’ll notice a dark grey exterior and pop-up roof space.

When you go inside, you’ll find a couch that folds into a bed, a small desk and kitchenette, and a table that pops up between the two front seats.

    My husband and I have been working and living out of our van for years! We are expediters. We get paid to travel the USA

      That’s awesome! You should share your experience. I’d love to know more about what you’ve found works for you, the ups and downs, etc.
      I am really interested in stealth living, living in a van, and traveling all over. I am currently planning on living in my car for a year so I can start to save up for a van, and my biggest concern is stealth and not getting in trouble with law enforcement.
      I’d love to hear more about your experiences.

    I’m impressed at the amount of storage in this wee little van. I don’t know if I could live in one – at least if I had a choice! – but this would be awesome for camping, or that across-the-USA drive I still want to do someday.

      What does an expediter do? BTW, I live in a 83.5 Westie, and the only thing in these photos that isn’t standard, might be a little table set up in the back by the little closet. Everything else is the way they came.

    Wow! Your van is awesome! I love all your nooks and grannies. Everything seems to fit perfectly inside there. You have a place for everything. Even your sleeping arrangement looks comfortable! It looks like you can actually move around in there without being too confined! Thank you for sharing your video of your van. You explained things in detail which is nice so people have an idea if they would like to venture out and do the same thing. I had a freestar van up to two ago when some kid totaled it. But I can’t imagine being able to fit everything you have in your van in my freestar. My van is smaller in size. Happy trails, traveling & living & working out of your van! Carol???
