After a long 30 days of this Sprinter Van Conversion project we are FINALLY moving on from what we like to call "Phase 1" which is all about laying the foundations of the tiny home. So, with electrical wiring, strapping, insulation and sound deadening behind us we are ready to move onto the esthetic stage of the van life build. This week the goal is to get all walls and ceiling panels up AND to lay our floor. Can we do it all in just a few short days?!?

How Did We Get Here?
After an incredible 3 years of living, working, and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we made the very tough decision to abandon it 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. 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. Halting our dream of driving around the world was a hard pill to swallow which is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto. Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a campervan and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID VAN ๐Ÿš
Tour the renovations we've done to our self converted sprinter van:

OVERLANDING AFRICA IN OUR SPRINTER VAN has been the adventure weโ€™ve always hoped it would be but itโ€™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.

    Hi Eamon + Bec! Huge fan of you both, your energy and vibrance for life is radiant :) My partner and I are also from Canada (Kelowna!) just about to purchase our 170 sprinter and we're starting to plan out items we want for our future full-time home! Question for you - for Canadian winters, do you think just heated floors would be enough to keep the van warm (we are doing a partition), or would you recommend heated floors AND a heater? Thanks so much, and keep being awesome

  35. Sarah Haley

    Sarah Haley3 months ago

    Hey Eamon! We love all your channel and have been watching you guys for a couple of years and are wondering if you could help us. We are trying to instal the Espar D2 Diesel heater and have run into a complication. Have you ever had to install an auxiliary fuel tap yourself? Our sprinter did not come with a KL1 aux fuel tap and it seems like we may have to drop our fuel tank to install one ourselves. This seems incredibly daunting so thought we would ask if you have done it this way before. Any advice would be great! Thank you :)
