After an incredible 3 years of living, working and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we’ve had to make the very tough decision to abandon our tiny home in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. The gravity of what we’ve done is STILL sinking in and we ((especially me (Bec)) are having a really hard time adjusting to our new reality. This is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + enter... OUR NEW SPRINTER VAN! We are looking forward to taking everything we've learned after 3 years of van life and applying it to this self build. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID CAMPERVAN 🚐
Today we finalize the design of our tiny house and can't wait to hear your feedback! With only 86 sq-ft we are doing our best to maximize a layout that includes a toilet, shower, fixed bed (with garage space), full kitchen, seating area and more! Can we do it?!?!

VAN TOUR after 2 years living in our TINY HOUSE on wheels
OVERLANDING AFRICA IN OUR SPRINTER VAN has been the adventure we’ve always hoped it would be but it’s hard to predict what happens next. We are hopeful that we can return to Trinity in a few months time and pick up on our world adventure. DISCLAIMER: We are NOT looking to sell Trinity.

  7. Tommy Paul

    Tommy PaulMonth ago

    I haven't put a quarter as much effort as you guys did, into the details of preparing my van before building it out. (Am I lazy?) For example, I've built right on top of the original floor, telling myself it's just that much more insulation. (Is that a cop-out?) And I didn't do anything to protect from rust; however, unlike a Sprinter, it seems to be made from a metal that never rusts. Places where paint flaked off long ago, still look clean and new. But as you guys love your van, I LOVE my van! I sometimes dream of actually going through the clouds with it. I named it "Little White Cloud".

  8. Tommy Paul

    Tommy PaulMonth ago

    In named my van "Little White Cloud", for that's the first Native American name I was ever given, in a ceremony at age three. I still vividly remember it. The van is a 1998 Chevy Express high top, so besides being white, it really does appear "little" (especially the narrower width of the high top) from behind compared to a similar view of a Sprinter.

    I absolutely love you guys! Found you just a couple of days ago and I'm hooked. Was looking for something to reinforce my desire to get a campervan and you guys are certainly selling the dream. I am at the "what type/size van do I go for" stage. Can anyone give me an idea of what age and mileage of a used Merc Sprinter I should look for and what a reasonable price would be? I'm in Spain, and therefore will be looking for a LHD.

    We are planning this same bed design. In our case the back rest will have 26 inches, so that, when it is raised (goes up), we will have not only a full longitudinal bed (at the top), but also a transversal single bed for our kid at the bottom (formed by the couch seat). Wonder why no-one has ever implemented this kind of bed system solution (at least i coundn´t find any).

    No, Bec, I am not bashing you, in fact kudos for learning, but during class did he not tell you it is pronounced JIF [soft "g" or "j"], *NOT* gif [hard "g"]. - - - Steve Wilhite, the inventor, pronounces it "JIF" himself, and when he explains the pronunciation of GIF, he has to explicitly write, “It’s pronounced ‘JIF’.” So, as long as the inventor is alive, and as long as he still pronounces it "JIF", then shouldn't we all? Only the unenlightened or obstinate are still trying to press the hard g version, and they are still wrong. - - - If you need proof, check it out at: Also, check out the back-story here: "The creator of the GIF image format, Steve Wilhite of CompuServe, when deciding on the pronunciation, said he deliberately chose to echo the American peanut butter brand, Jif, and CompuServe employees would often say “Choosy developers choose GIF(jif)”, playing off of Jif’s television commercials. If you hear anyone pronounce G, IF with a soft G, it’s because they know something of this history. If the Jif peanut butter company never existed, he would have never pronounced GIF with a soft G." - - - Again, kudos for continuing to chase the challenges and your dreams!!!
