Couple Transforms An Old Truck Into A Traveling Apartment

A young couple in the UK were tired of struggling to pay for rent and basic necessities. They felt that with all the pressures of the workday grind, they weren’t truly enjoying their lives together.

So Adam, 30, and Nikki, 33, devoted an entire year to converting a panel van into their dream home when the overhead of renting became too much to bear. They each gave up their traditional 9-to-5 office jobs to commit to their new unconventional lifestyle.

Adam and Nikki pooled funds to buy a large white Ford Transit van for $4,500. The committed couple lived with their parents for a few months while they spent another $6,500 converting the van into a completely functional apartment on wheels.

The pair did all of the conversion work on the van by themselves, and had no experience at all. In fact, Nikki had never even picked up a drill before this. They are both smart and hardworking, however, and they learned as they went along. They also watched a lot of instructional YouTube videos in the process of figuring it out on their own.

Today, the van provides everything they need for a comfortable lifestyle, including a kitchen, toilet, shower, windows, a bedroom, and a porch.

Adam and Nikki say they will spend at least a year traveling across Europe in their new home, and in fact they may never return to a normal home-bound lifestyle again.
