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 repatriation flight back to Canada (due to the global pandemic). 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 home in Toronto. Well, that AND we needed a place to call home! Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! We're so excited to share the full project with you from start to finish so you can see a snapshot of these past 4 months 🚐 Thinking about converting a van into your dream tiny home?

    • You need to go back to your Ireland video and apologise for saying Ireland is in the UK. Ireland is a Republic and a separate country to the UK. Major mistake on your part and you have upset a lot of Irish people. It's like saying Canada is part of America 🇨🇮🇨🇮🇨🇮🇨🇮

Most van dwellers I know can only dream of living in something as luxurious as this.....myself included. 😊. I LOVE you two, your amazing videos and how you make some of us strive to do a better build on our own vans. 😊❤️

(Better than watching you UT go down the toilet) 14 days in a campervan in Europe is normal. Gee I think you guys are over thinking the rules. Just our opinion. Pat & dap,a van build, in Ireland. Look in up. Come back. These veds your doing now will kill the channel. Only my opinion.😭😭😭

  • Love the thoroughly planned out garage/electrical area. So neatly wired and placed so that replacement of any part will be easier! Love the nature’s head compost toilet. We have one in our Oliver travel trailer. Combining it with a wet bath area in the van has been done smarter and more efficiently than any other van build we have seen. Congrats! Bet Bob will update some areas in his own van after this new build. A few jars maybe? Best wishes all.

  • Thank you both for recapping the whole process in one, it gives a good overview of what's involved. I am dreaming of doing my own van and travelling too. I sold my apartment last year intending to buy a house (it's what us grown ups are supposed to do right?!), but really I'm dreaming of being on the road in warmer climates, discovering new places every day, treasuring every day on this earth. Your encouragement that we can do the work even if we're not a DIY expert, and words at the end to just go for it felt like you were talking to me! Thanks again Eamon and Bec. You're the best ❤️

It is so nice to see two people so much in love and I compliment you for that. I am probably Bob's age and can imagine how much fun he has with you two. I live in Ghana, West Africa, and wait every week for your videos. Thank you and keep up the good job and the love.

Well am sure editing all those videos also kept you guys busy and kept us (viewers busy and happy as well.) Eamon and Bec I hope you guys never stop building stuff... business,vans,future house,etc because every time you do it inspire us all to get out of our zone and try new things! I am working on something amazing for trailers/vans and as soon as I am allowed I will share it with you guys. (Still in development but check us out if you want techexp.ca/) Keep up the great work and can't wait for the next video/project Martin

  • This is amazing. I have been afraid of taking risks and traveling freely. The plan to move from Canada tu the Netherlands almost 3 years ago was to travel around. But, the conservative Ana (me) kicked it as usual and made my only focus on my carrier. By watching your videos on building your own van (my ex-partner was/is a hug fan of your channel), i have been determined to do this for myself. The pandemic makes life harder but it is a good time to work on hobbies. Hope I can fulfill this dream of mine especially the building part. Again, that's impressive and i wish you both happiness and more adventurous life. Ana
