Road tripping with your friends and going to see fascinating new places all over the place is amazing. Being able to pack up my belongings and head out on an adventure at a moments notice is one of the best things about my life at this current time. If I want to take off and go visit another state, I don’t really have to put much thought into it, I just do it. It’s very liberating to know that you have nothing holding you down in one spot. I don’t have a lot of possessions, so it wouldn’t be that hard except having a place to sleep without having to get a hotel room. Being able to have a place of your own out on the road that has all the amenities of a home would be one of the greatest things ever. Well this gentleman below apparently had the same thought process. He was tired of the every day grind and needed a change. So he bought an old Mercedes Sprinter and did something absolutely amazing with it. This mobile home has everything you could want in an actual home, and you can take it absolutely anywhere! No more being tied down by a mortgage or stupid yard work. This mobile home is truly one of a kind.
This guy just looks like someone who wouldn’t want to be tied down to one spot for very long. He has ‘adventure’ written all over his face.
The first thing he did was tear up the floor of the van, exposing the liner underneath.
Insulating the vehicle is one of the most important things you can do if you plan on living in it for any period of time. This van was perfect because many areas of the walls are hollow. This allowed for easy installation of the insulation throughout the van.
Adding a layer of eco-foil insulation will keep the van even warmer!
For the walls he used some simple plywood sheets. Nothing fancy really needed for this.
He added in this shelf in the back that will eventually turn into an area for a bed.
A nice bench gives the living area of the van some more seating and a feeling of home. You can literally crawl out of bed right onto your bench for breakfast. He also added support legs underneath his sleeping area.
Now the appliances start to come in. A full size fridge is pretty much out of the question, but one of these mini ones are perfect! The cabinet next to it will be perfect for a small sink.
Battery power to run everything in the living quarters.
This little sink is the perfect size for this mobile home. If you are living like this, a huge sink probably isn’t big on your list of essential luxuries.
A compact sink and water storage system all in one place. This man will want for nothing!
This is turning into quite a nice little sitting area. The kitchen counter even extends all the way to the couch for a table.
I really like the use of the high ceilings to install some shelving units for more storage space. Getting the most out of every inch of a project like this is critical.
He purchased some solar panels to make his van even more energy-efficient. This will definitely save his battery life.

All hooked up to the roof of the van. This thing is ready for some serious adventuring!
The hollow area underneath the bed in the back provides even more storage for gear and pretty much anything else you might need.
With a TV and a computer, this place combines all the comforts of home with the freedom of being on the open road.
I love the plants that line the roof. Having some greenery in your living space can really brighten it up.
I imagine being parked in a parking lot next to a beach at sunset, just watching the ocean from the comfort of my bed.
Who says you can’t cook a good meal from a van!
This really is the ultimate adventure pad, everything you need is right at your fingertips. Being able to just turn a key and go wherever you want with all the comforts of home is something I dream of being able to do someday in the future. If I am lucky enough to be able to have the same career and possibly work remotely, this may be how I choose to live my life. Just going wherever my wheels can take me.
