Inspiring camper van conversions for the beautiful vanlife.


Hey-Guys-Hi everyone – Welcome to our home on wheels. Right here, we have our closet – a little bit of hanging space which is nice. So this is our full-size foam mattress that we lifted up off the floor about 36 inches so we can fit plenty of storage underneath from the backside. So this is where I keep all of my clothes.
That is a tiny closet but it is very organized as you can see. I use these packing cubes. I have all of my shorts in this one.
I have t-shirts in another and then dirty clothes will go in a hamper that I store above that overhead cab. This is where we store all our leisure activities. Back here, we have these overhead cabins, which are held shot by magnets. One of the things we did when we built our van, we installed these hinges. So that they stayed open. Before every time we opened it,
we had to bounce it on our head. This was a five-dollar-solution. One thing that we do to get back to these back cabinets is: We unlock this table,
so we just can kind of spin it. So it gets out of our way a little bit. In terms of storage areas in the van we have actually a few important ones. Lee and my perspective on which is the most important is very different. For myself it’s definitely these two surfboards over here. For Lee the most important aspect of storage was these two cupboards. These floor to ceiling cupboards are pretty unique for van layouts. We wanted to make it feel like home but also Lee wanted to make sure
that there is enough room in the van for everything to have its place. This is our bedroom, dining room and office – all in one. Starting from the very top, we have our air condition unit,
which is really good for cold air, in case of an emergency. Below that we have Maggie’s side of the closet.
Above we have a very important cabin. This is our control panel. It tells us how much voltage we have in our battery, as well as how much draw we’re either taking from our battery
or how much juice we’re giving our battery. On average we drive about two hours a day to find our next adventure spot,
so a very comfortable cockpit is important to us We got our heated seats and everything else we need. This is kind of our command station. We have an outlet right here
and it also has two USB plug-ins. Here we can control the heat inside the van,
which makes it great for the winter time. We also have a light-switch here, which has a dimmer touchscreen.
So I can dim the lights. Over here we have our inverter which inverts DC to AC power.
We can plug in our laptops and phones and charge all our stuff. Our van electrical system has two 100 volt solar panels on the roof, that charge two six golf cart batteries, that house underneath the van. This is an isotherm fridge and actually it is a lot bigger than expected,
it has much more space. We even have a little freezer in there, it’s really nice. Below the sink we have our propane tank that we use to run our two hobs. That houses in this compartment here – this seals for safety when we’re driving. We have running water, we have a propane stove top and we even have a pullout cutting board. We also have a 12 volt electric refrigerator which holds about a week’s worth of food for us. Firstly, what makes a continuing need to us
is this galvanized top that we turned into a sink. We love it because it is huge, it can fit a lot of dishes or, if you want to,
we can wash a laundry in the sink Next, what we like is, that we didn’t design a permanent cook top inside
because we actually love to cook outside and we try to cook outside as much as possible. So this is our outdoor cooking area, we have an unfold table, that just has a ledge. We place the cooker over here and on the right side is where we get the propane from,
that comes and attaches to the cooker. So, one of the main challenges was: Where do you go to the bathroom
or where do you shower. And this is right here. So we have our natural composting toilet in here as well as a shower. The shower is fed by a forty gallon fresh water tank that is located in the back. Also we can use this space for storage. In addition to this being a super comfy seating area, this also actually serves as our composting toilet storage area. So completely hidden, out of sight, no smells. Now we are going to show you how we transform our living room
in our bedroom space. This is for our bed. I am going to show you how we set up our bed. I push it down. Our bedding is under here, I just pull everything out. After I grabbed the blankets, I usually take this piece.
And I try to fit it into the correct formation. This is our bed. I usually need maybe five minutes to set it up. Cody sleeps here. He is the tallest. And I sleep like this. This comes down. It sits on the slip here. And in this cabin,
we have some more boards, that connect these two together. These two cushions come together in the middle, so this becomes a bed. Thank you, guys for checking out our van. And we hope you really enjoy our tour of our tiny home. See you guys on the road.
