Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

VAN TOUR ???? Solo Female Living in a Van Conversion ???? Amazing TINY HOUSE on Wheels

In today's van life vlog, we get a Van Tour from Bev, a Solo Female Living in a Van Conversion!

It is an amazing tiny house on wheels that cost only $5,500. She added another $1,500 in upgrades - so Bev is full time RV living and enjoying van life in a van that cost $7,000. Wait until you see the inside, it is such a beautiful tiny house on wheels and an amazing van conversion for such an affordable price.

Bev is 57 and proud and was fascinated by solo female RV living and was interested in exploring solo female fan life. She is into minimalism so the storage limitations of a campervan were not in issue for Bev. A friend of hers does van life builds and offered to sell her her latest van conversion. Bev was a little unsure at first about living in a van build. She went camping with her friend and vell in love with this camper van conversion. So she bought the RV camper van for $5,500.

She was really excited about solo female van life and adding more solo female travel to her already extensive list of travel locations but she wanted something that could work at campgrounds but also had some tiny house off grid capability. So she invested another $1,500 in to her RV camper van conversion and made it more suitable for off grid living.

Bev's van life build is truly amazing. It's such a comfortable and amazing tiny house on wheels. It really made me think about how accessible this full time RV life really is. Bev also addresses the apprehension of some to solo female van life, solo female rv lving, and solo female travel in general. She talks about the groups she's a member of that have helped her transition into solo female van life.

This was an amazing van tour and I hope you enjoyed me profiling another van life, rv living person other than myself. It's such a cool community of full time RV living people. Thanks for watching and reading another van tour!

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.

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?!?!

Abandoning our Van in Africa

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 ????

After a long 10 weeks of this Sprinter Van Conversion project, we are beginning to tie it all together with some decor and cabinetry! Now that our van is insulated, wired, framed and painted we are moving forward with the challenging task of building out our van life kitchen. We begin the week with receiving our beautiful walnut countertops, install our sink and stove and build a few drawers for under the main counter. We then move on to tiling our van and we have to say that the van's really started to feel like a home!

VAN TOUR | Full time living in our TINY HOUSE on wheels

FULL VAN TOUR of our TINY HOUSE ON WHEELS in which we live FULL TIME! Curious how we live on the road? Enjoy this VAN LIFE VAN TOUR!

In this van tour we show you how we are living on the road in Europe.
We are vanlifer Leon and Miek, and we are living in a motorhome full time.
We have succesfully converted the interiour of our van from a standard campervan into our perfect tiny home on wheels, so here is our motorhome interiour tour.
It took a while, but she looks stunning and we thought it was time to show you how we live on the road as a traveling married couple.

Our van is an Adria Campervan, and we are absolutely in love with our campervan.
We invite you into our home on wheels and show you what our van is all about and how we are living van life on the road in Europe.
The van is 100 % offgrid with solar power, hot water, indoor shower and huge amount of kitchen space. And...a bed we don't have to make every night!

About us:
We are Leon and Miek, a traveling married couple. In our travel vlogs we show you how to travel as a married couple (and how not to..).
We named our youtube channel Vantastic traveling, as we are living the van life whilst traveling around Europe. Living on the road in Europe has become a perfect way of living for us.
If you like to see weekly video's of a married couple living in a van, living the European van life, subscribe and join the adventure!

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?!?

Our music:

Big thanks to Expedition Upfitter for partnering with us on this van life build. We've just installed the electric floor heater + mounted the diesel heater we got from them. More to come on all items in future videos. Check them out here:

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 ????

Tour the renovations we've done to our self converted sprinter van:
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.

VAN TOUR | MODERN STEALTH CAMPER | DIY Budget Friendly Promaster Tiny Home for Full Time Vanlife!

#tinyhome #vanlife #vanconversion

INSTAGRAM:

Two years ago, we could have never imagined ourselves converting a van for full-time vanlife. After converting our first Sprinter van, traversing over 4,000 miles, and making memories to last a lifetime, we ESPECIALLY could never have imagined converting a SECOND VAN in a pandemic that sent us back across the country. And YET, here we are with two vans in the driveway and two builds under our belt!

We had such fun converting this Promaster van into a super sleek, modern off-grid rig for vanlife. This was a great quarantine project, and now that's it's complete, we can't wait to get back on the road to more unforgettable adventures.

VAN TOUR | Living in our TINY HOUSE on wheels OFF GRID | Sprinter Van Conversion

VAN LIFE COUPLE TOUR | Welcome to our BEAUTIFUL DIY Sprinter Van Conversion with a built in Shower and Solar for OFF GRID LIVING!!

Hey Everyone! Take a look inside our van (BIG BLUE) in our Van Tour Video!

In April 2019, we purchased an old 2002 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (LWB, High top, 2.4L Turbo Engine). We finished converting it in August 2019, whilst working full time jobs, and have now hit the open road traveling and living full time! - We spent a rough total of £3000 for the conversion.

We don't go crazy on the details, as we'll be putting out a new video in the future when we can.

We've both always wanted to live a different lifestyle and felt there had to be more to life, but needed the freedom to get it all figured out - Then came Van Life! Which gave us freedom in an inexpensive way. Now we live in this beautiful home on wheels that we created together, where life feels open and free. Let's see where the open road takes us!!

Van Tour | DIY Van Conversion with Bathroom (1980 Mercedes 307 D)

Welcome to our Van Tour! Ody is a 38 year-old Mercedes 307D van that we originally bought in Germany. Lou and I taught ourselves everything we needed to know to complete this DIY van build on YouTube. It took us 6 months to convert our rusty old camper van with an ancient interior into our perfect tiny home. We're now traveling Europe living out our van life dream :)

Hope you enjoy the tour!

Join us as we explore Europe! --

Want to see how we built the whole van? --

Love,
Dana & Lou

Converted Sprinter Van VS. Airstream VS. Motorhome | Tiny Home on Wheels Tour

We were so excited to team up with Go RVing Canada to head to the Toronto RV show this past weekend to check out that latest and greatest in the van life community. We take you on a tour of everything from a beautiful Airstream to a move-in ready Sprinter Van conversion and show you some of our favourite highlights!!

We've always said that the best part of van life for us is having our home with us everywhere we go! I believe that's true for the millions of people who also choose to live alternatively in a tiny home on wheels.

We're curious to know which option you can see yourself living in full-time and/or part-time adventure travel in?? Are you an airstream gal (like Bec) or a low-key teardrop camper guy (like Eamon) OR are you a luxury motorhome with all the bells and whistles kind of vanlifer?!
