Renee’s Van is a 2019 Mercedes Sprinter 414 CDi LWB High roof. This van is jam packed with the best features. Renee sold her house & hit the road so she wanted to maximise the comfort of tiny home living.
A dining room that converts into a double bed was a non-negotiable for Renee. The comfort of sleeping couldn’t compromise the ability to host a dinner party or social gatherings. Renee’s got style, and she wanted the same with her van. Beautiful tiled backsplash and a complimenting brick wall, a rustic barn door on the shower, clean white timbers and Hamptons style furniture and hardware, this van could be on the cover of a glossy magazine.
A state of the art 200 amp hour lithium battery system, 1600 watt inverter, 40 amp DCDC charger, 45 amp solar controller & a huge 600 watts of solar, this van packs a punch in the power department. A shower, toilet, 110 litres of fresh water, oven & stove make this little home a place to feel at ease wherever you may be, and the maxxair fan and two sirocco fans will keep you cool even in the hot Queensland summers.
Martin is a surfer and came to me with a specific brief, ‘Keep It Simple’
Martin lives in a tiny house and this van is an extension of that lifestyle.
Simple yet meeting Martin's needs, this van is the perfect example of form vs functionality. A surfboard cabinet that stretches the entire length of the van allows for two boards to be carried without affecting day to day use of the van space, and the ability to carry two more boards on the ceiling means he can get away for those longer surf trips and have the versatility of his entire surfboard collection on board.
A small adaptable couch area can be used to lounge, relax, or even have guests over for a few sunset beers after a day in the surf. A 30 ltr drawer fridge is a perfect addition to this little weekend getaway vehicle, and the flip up bed allows for quick transition between sleep mode, and the ability to still carry cargo when required.
A modest 140ah AGM battery with the ability to upgrade to 280ah and 300 watts of solar is plenty of power to run this vans appliances, and a Victron solar controller with bluetooth makes for easy monitoring of the electrical performance and history.
A pull-out kitchen that transforms into a substantial amount of cooking space means this van is perfect for those extra-long weekend breaks to be fully off grid and self-sustaining.
Rowen & Raphaella's
This van is a self-build Fiat Ducato. Rowan and Raph brought me the van to help with cabinetry as they had fallen behind in their build schedule. The resulting cabinetry and countertops have given this little beauty some heart and soul and created a solid foundation for the couple to finish their build and be re-inspired.
Beautiful 42mm thick Camphor Laurel countertops and work tables are a real statement piece in this van, along with a double bed, sliding wardrobe and huge double bike slide out (installed by the clients), this van will be quite the adventure vehicle once finished!!
Edna is a 2012 model Ford Transit LWB high roof. Edna came to me as an ex removals van, with really low kms and a good clean blank canvas.
Although Edna has less than 6 square metres of living space, we managed to pack in almost every feature you could ever want in a tiny home on wheels.
With a toilet and shower, hot water heater, aircon, 100 litre fridge, two 4.5 kg gas bottles, an oven and stove, TV, coffee machine, lagun table, awning, 450 watts of solar and 480 amp hours of battery, this little van has the feature list of a luxury home.
