Like many van dwellers, Brett Currie quit his job and sold his home to travel full time. The Scottish native spent over eight months building out a 2010 Mercedes Super High Roof Sprinter Van. His home-on-wheels now sports a kitchen, bathroom, and even a small bookshelf.
The interior was rebuilt with wood siding and custom-made cushions and curtains. His bed pulls out to be queen size, and the headboard wall separates storage in the back.
For the kitchen, Brett added new countertops from IKEA, a small stove, oven, sink, and fridge. He also mounted a metal rod with hooks on the wall to easily hang items.
Past the kitchen, his spacious bathroom has a toilet and a shower. The van’s powered by two solar panels on the roof, along with a 300-amp battery and power inverter.
Brett encourages anyone considering a van conversion to go for it.
“For anyone thinking about doing a van conversion themselves, I would say absolutely go for it. I mean I had no previous knowledge or experience and I was able to do it. So if I can do it, anybody can do it!”
