SPRINTER VAN LIFE BLOG POSTS

In 2016, I took the plunge into Sprinter Van Life. I sold my car, moved out of my apartment, and bought a 4×4 Mercedes 144″ Sprinter Van and had it built out into the ultimate tiny home. I traveled all over the Western US and put 30,000 miles on it before selling it and starting over with a 170″ 4×4 Sprinter Van that was converted by Outside Van.

In these Sprinter van life blog archives you’ll find helpful tips and inspiration for finding or building your dream home on wheels. Whether you want a comparison of the 144″ vs 170″ Sprinter, to take a tour of either of my Sprinter Vans, or get advice on your build (ie should you build a shower in your van), you can find all of that here. Also, make sure to check out our Sprinter Van Life interview series for advice and insight from some very inspirational vanlifers.

Here are some of the most popular van life blog posts on Bearfoot Theory.
