SF Couple Build Out Sprinter Van to Live on the Road

The idea of leaving most of your possessions behind to start living (and adventuring) in a van might seem like either a faraway dream or a foolhardy undertaking, depending on who you ask.

Juliana Linder and Richmond Hollen plunged into that nomadic lifestyle after purchasing a 2002 Freightliner Sprinter van.

Before taking off on a yearlong trip in their van-home, the couple spent time saving up and customizing the van. They gave up their apartments in San Francisco in 2016…

Couple Converts Airport Shuttle Bus into Home on Wheels

After graduating from college, Pete Thuli and Taylor Bucher spent 10 months traveling through Southeast Asia, and when they returned home to the U.S., they realized how much of their own country they had never seen.

“We knew that committing ourselves to an office job straight out of college wouldn’t make us happy, so we started brainstorming ways we could travel and work for an extended amount of time,” the couple told TODAY Home. Their winning idea: an 80-square-foot van that needed some TLC.

Originally a San Diego airport shuttle bus, the van had also been most recently used as a construction vehicle. When they bought it for $4,500, there were a lot of random accessories and additions that each owner had added to it and modified…

Old Ambulance Converted into Home on Wheels



If you’ve ever dreamt of living the van life and traveling the world, then this is a project that you need to see. Michal and Hana (originally from the Czech Republic) arrived in New Zealand with one year to travel the country. In order to make their journey comfortable, they set about converting an old Ford Transit ambulance into a stunning home on wheels.

Outside, the camper van is certainly inconspicuous and can easily be used for stealth camping when the couple wish to sleep in more urban areas. The van is completely self-contained and certified, which means that it has the ability to legally park in a wide variety of wilderness areas throughout New Zealand.

A Lovely LDV Camper

lily-and-her-van-4-of-8

When we first met Lily Loveheart Kemp, she was living in an incredible pop-top caravan that she had renovated and which was parked in a backyard in the middle of Auckland City, New Zealand. The following winter, she packed her bags and began an incredible journey.

Her time living in the pop-top caravan certainly taught Lily a lot about small-space design and what was required to really make a tiny house on wheels into a comfortable home. The final result of her design project was a spectacularly renovated van, perfectly suited for a young couple on the road. Traveling to the United Kingdom and together with her partner Ryan, converting an LDV van into a brilliant home on wheels, which they would live in while traveling around Europe.

Despite the limited size afforded by an LDV van, this home certainly isn’t doing without much. It boasts a full kitchenette (borrowed from an old caravan) with sink, gas fridge, two hobs, a workspace and plenty of storage for all the kitchen essentials. There’s also additional over-cab storage, a wardrobe, cassette toilet, leisure battery, full-length windows, a carpeted area for the bedroom, vinyl flooring in the kitchen, and even a well-insulated ceiling. The entire van is designed to run off electrical hook-ups and gas but the leisure battery is large enough for some unplugged adventures.
