Two years ago, Eamon and I decided to forgo yet another apartment lease to buy a used 2008 Mercedes Sprinter Van that we would convert to our tiny home on wheels. Our DIY project allowed us to customize our build to meet our specific needs and we could not be happier. This is how you live #VanLife in simplified style!
Since then we have driven across most of North America and made this van our full time HOME. As we prepare for Van Life in Europe we want to update our van to include some basic comforts we've been missing out on!
We did our best to create a quick video that includes all pieces of our van conversion to a camper. It is a video we wish we could've watched before jumping into building our home on wheels.
Got questions about how to convert a van into an off-grid camper?
Comment below and we will get back to you!

    Good morning everyone! We are so excited to share our first episode of our van makeover series!! A toilet, double the water storage AND a bigger fridge... waaaaahooo! Is there anything else you’d add to our build?!

    I feel like I know your problem with your drawer box! If you take out the drawer box and measure the interior width of your "cabinet" from the front then measure the interior width of the back they may be different, and that may be why you're dealing with this problem. To fix this you will need to shim you're slides so that the interior width of you "cabinet" is the same.

    Ok not sure, just wondering should the water tank have some padding like the piece of floor mat you cut to keep it from rubbing against the metal while traveling so it doesn't rub a whole in it? 😏 Can't wait to see the finish!!πŸ’š

    Thinking of getting a van and converting it too. But im indecisive about it. I also want a Jeep and tow a small DIY camper trailer. That way, I can settle down in one area and live there for a few months if I want. But a camper van is more convenient but it seems risky because your home is also your car.

    You should put soft circles that they put under bed legs or chair legs to put under the two circle legs for toilet sliding shelf so it doesn’t scratch your floor

I just had a dream in which Eamon, Bec, Bob and I, along with some other Vanlife vloggers, all worked in a pizza shop together--sorry, but not vegan. It was a loooong dream with multiple segments, including one where i accidenttally locked everybody out of the bathrooms but Bec saved the day. Hooray for Bec!!!

    The soft close drawers have to be pushed really hard the first time you close them. Then they become soft after opening and closing again. It's just for the first time after installation that you need to push it close hard.

    omg I’m so happy you guys are happy about your new toilet. I love how Bec wanted to sit on it first! 🀣 You definitely need to do a review on the Nature’s Head after using it a few months. Question: what happens if you have to really really go #2 in the middle of the night, how will you get it out from under the bed?

    Rasp or rout a chamfer and wax the leg pucks on your toilet sled, so it doesn't wear your floor out too fast.

    Ramon your dad Bob is hysterical. So funny.....glad you finally did the toilet. I would have shower also, both seem essential for me anyway. If you would have turned your bed around would it not have given enough space for toilet? I don’t know just chatting away like I’m part of the build....lol. 😜enjoy I’m sure you will make it perfect

    Quick tip for your window/glass crack; use a bit of clear nail polish to fill it in. This helps prevent issues with further weathering/cracking. This comes from someone who lived in Sudbury Ontario for a good chunk of my life and dealt with numerous cracks. Please πŸ‘so they see

    Hey guys, just FYI - you should redo the grey tank clamps without the rubber spacer - manufacturer says nothing but clamps as the rubber can wear or move and then the tank is loose. See Greg Virgoe explain here uslikes.info/house/a62Nq9Oy2auwd8g/video.html

  82. Dax Wax

    Dax WaxYear ago

    Your thought process of the weight of water Vs batteries is wrong as I'll be using the water hence less weight. On one side of your van u less you continue to fill up water everytime you stop. You'll notice on the tires pretty quickly the difference in weight Vs tire wear on one side.

  83. amham48

    amham48Year ago

    Why AGM? Of course lithium is much more expensive but you will find yourself ditching the lead/acid soon and wasting the investment. The weight savings alone is substantial. Find a lithium manufacturer to sponsor you (at least at a discount) as others vanlifers have done. The increase in capacity will be double for the same size.

    Hi Eamon and Bec. My name is John and this is my first comment to one of your videos. I found Van Life after buying some non-winning entries in the Omaze Van giveaway, and have been obsessed with the idea, Googling conversion floor plans, checking out the base van options, and watching a ton of USlikes videos. I've watched about half of your videos, and find you two joyful and enjoyable. Your positivity is inspirational. Bec, you are simply the sweetest human on Earth. Eamon, I love your Freestyle Friday cooking. I want to save money, buy a van, pay for a conversion, and move in to it, living in it until ready for retirement, then travel in it during retirement. I've already decided on a Ram high top extended, because of lowest purchase and repair cost, and have drawn my 3-D plans, and list of must haves for the van build. It will probably be two years until I am able to make the move, but that just gives me time to change my build out plans many times between then and now, making a first van a good one. I'm listening to your podcasts, checking out your instagram posts, and watching your videos. Really glad that you two share your lives online, and love hearing you call each other "buddy". It is so clear you love each other, and it is wonderful to see your love shared with each post, cast, and vlog. Cheers from Mendocino County, California. John Cesano

    Enjoyed watching your videos so much so I subscribed to your channel this morning. I recently purchased a van and plan on doing what you have already done. One thing that I noticed is that your van does not have a roof mount AC. Is that something you will add in your renovation? Is it necessary for traveling in subtropical areas?
