Have you ever dreamed of living the van life? Back in 2017 when we sold everything we owned and moved to Canada we did just that! We spent 5 months living out of our self-converted campervan, Elvis. We still have him, and use him on vacations and weekend trips.
I love him but I still end up spending a lot of time looking at other peoples’ van life interiors for inspiration if we decide to do another build one day. There are so many ways of turning a van into a beautiful tiny home as this post shows.
These are some of my favourite van life interiors of late and they just make me dream of doing another road trip like our US one, or even a shorter one such as our Vancouver to Banff & Jasper trip. Another epic option would be our South America itinerary by campervan!
The best van life interior inspiration!
One of the best parts of planning your camper van layout is doing the research beforehand and spending time seeing what other people have done with theirs. It’s important to do the research to make sure you end up with something that suits your lifestyle and is comfortable for you.
If you’re having trouble deciding on what van to choose, whether to do a Sprinter van conversion or something smaller like our E-150, check out this post on how to choose a van for van life.
Besides that, it’s important to determine what you’re going to use your van for. Are you going to be living and working in it full time? If so, a desk may be high on your list of priorities.
Are you going to be spending a lot of time in cities?
You’ll probably need something that looks less like a campervan.
Are you a keen mountain biker, surfer or skier?
You may want to consider how you’ll store bikes. It’s better to store them inside to reduce the risk of theft.
Below are some of the best van life interiors I’ve found recently – they’re so beautiful! As you scroll through, think about what it is you like about each conversion and how you can work that into your own van.
These van life conversions are all very different, but beautiful nonetheless. Looking at these photos will give you so many van life ideas that the hardest part will be figuring out which ones to use.
The best vans for van life are the ones you’ve made fit your lifestyle – have fun!
