BUILDING OFF-GRID TINY HOUSE DURING PANDEMIC | Eamon & Bec

Since making the difficult decision to abandon our van & take a rescue flight from Morocco back to Canada our heads have been spinning about what’s next for us?! Should we buy land and create an off-grid tiny house to wait out the storm? Should we try to convert another Sprinter Van? When will we reunite with our beloved tiny home on wheels Trinity the Sprinter? This week we make some BIG DECISIONS + we can’t wait to start this next adventure ► SUBSCRIBE so you never miss a video bit.ly/2DDSUgu

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. As it has for all of us this global pandemic has flipped our world upside down. What went from a virus that seemed far away in China, quickly made it’s way across the globe forcing us to quarantine in our 60 sq-ft in Morocco. And while quarantining was going well for us it became apparent that things would be different for a long while. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. The gravity of what we’ve done is 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 + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto so we called up our buddy Russel who sells used Sprinter Vans and asked if had anything for sale that would work for a new Sprinter Van Conversion.
This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a tiny home on wheels and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID CAMPERVAN 🚐

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.

    Good morning friends near and far!! We hope you are keeping healthy and safe 💜. We have been SO excited to share this news with you but also want to be VERY clear that getting back to Trinity is our number one priority post-pandemic. Now let's hear your name suggestions for our new baby!

    Well because (I think) this is the first van y’all purchased while doing USlikes (not 100 percent sure tho) you should combine Y’all’s names and call it Cemon Or. Embecon I know they are different but it’s unique!!

    Hey guys! Long time fans here! Used your vids for inspo and how to on our build 🙌🏼 We are gearing up to move back to Canada at some point next year and we will be wanting to buy another van to do up 🙌🏼 whoop whoop! I have been looking and have had trouble at what apps/websites are good for used cars, and then I remembered that you guys have a “Sprinter Guy”... wondering if you’re open to sharing who and how we can maybe get in contact with this sprinter guy to chase us a 4x4 170 🥰😍 cheers from AUS!
