Nat and Abi bought their 2004 Sprinter van for $6,000 USD and converted it for $10,000 USD. It took a year and a half for them to build it out and they did a spectacular job!
The kitchen was their main focus because cooking is a big part of their day. They have a long counter for food prep, a 2-burner alcohol stove, a sink with a 12-volt pump, and a top-loading fridge.
The lounge area is a combo couch and dinette with a table that slides out from under the bed and loads of storage underneath.
Their bed is fixed and runs the width of the van to save space, and it’s tall enough to fit a water tank, solar power system, and garage underneath.
To finance their life on the road, Abi does stock and portrait photography, Nat does pop up restaurants and private dinners, and together they create content on the Lets Play Ride and Seek YouTube channel and Instagram page.
We think you’ll love meeting this incredible couple so enjoy the video and give them a follow 🙂
Thanks for watching!

Thanks for posting and sharing. Nice episode.
We’re so happy to share our story and tour of our tiny home. Thank you Exploring Alternatives for reaching out to us. We absolutely love how this turned out! Cheers, Nat and Abi
You two are the best! Thanks so much for taking the time to collaborate with us! Happy Exploring 🙂 🙂
Loved the Andrew Knapp shout out. Known him on and off for 15 years or so. Congrats on taking this step and building community! ❤️
You two come off as very genuine and happy, more than most. Thank you for sharing.
Can we talk about those views?! Looks like the Badlands in South Dakota. What a place to wake up in!
You nailed it! We filmed this while enjoying the Badlands! Such beautiful views to wake up to!
“You’re gonna be doin’ a lot of doobie rollin’ when you’re living in a van down by the river.”
You know it 😉
One more time I can see: ” if you want you can do it”. Ah, so beautiful and useful van. Thank you for sharing.
Nice that you’re off grid 👍
Now’s the perfect time for it 🙂
Magnets 🧲 in curtains – perfect idea 💡
OH how I would love to be a fly on the wall in some of their adventures 🙂
Follow along here on Youtube 😉
That is living. What more could you want
I love both of your outlooks on life. I love the van (backsplash and curtains) too. And of course the doggies. Love your Pomeranian as I use to own two Pom’s at two different times.
The only thing that I could not do without is a toilet especially at night but that is if I was travelling alone. But you ladies are awesome and I wish you the best in all that you do. Happy and healthy travelling.
Thank you! And yay for poms!
I think this is the best way to live because you get a different view each day and if a catastrophe hits in your area you can just move.
Your set up is divine. I would love to live like you do. Way too old, but wish, still!! Great job guys!!
These two lovely ladies did a great job on renovating the van. We hope they have many happy adventures and safe travels. Thanks for sharing their story.❤
Thanks for watching!
A yellow bus and dog named Momo? Sounds like Andrew Knapp! Love his stuff
Nailed it! He’s just as awesome in person
Awesome ladies! love the van and especially the puppers!
No 9am to 5pm drudgery not for you guys, I wish I could go on permanent vacation..
I have being searching for the elusive money tree. 🌴
Love the van build and that your a chef! I’m following you 2 so I can learn to do my camper van and also more importantly I need to learn how to cook,lol
Yay! You’ll love our cooking videos!
have you got any content of how you coped when your van blew up in the middle of winter thousands of miles away and how you guys scraped out of it.
i dont see a lot of content of this. just the positive sides of van life.
“Welcome to cribs.” 😂 They are ridiculously adorable.
