Check out Mike's "Ultimate Mountain Biker Van" which he built 100% himself and lives in full-time. This thing is fully equipped for long-term riding, digging, living and working.

This 2004 Dodge Sprinter Van 3500 complete with heat, running water, solar power and a toilet.

He's been living in vans on and off for the past few years, but dreamt of building this exact Sprinter Van while renting a small cabin. He then decided to go for broke and turned his dream into a reality. Living and owning a business in Bellingham, WA means he's in a travel hot-spot on the West Coast, and can pick up and take off anytime to work and live in his home away from home.

      Whatcha think? Would you live in Mike's van?? 🚐

      ***To everyone asking where I shower and recommending building a shower: been doin' this for years, and finding showers is super easy! Everyone I know with a shower in their van seriously never uses it, and I would 1,000% rather have the open space and countertop for cooking than a shower any day! It also really complicates the build, and I tried to stay away from that 😎

      Great Van dude... Have ever considered a platform in your garage that slides in and out on rails? Could be used as work bench and may make things easier to load/unload or move around.

      Very nice build. .it all depends on the person and what works best for them. .
      Me and hubby are up in age and don't do the mountain bike but we love traveling and exploring. ..I love everything you've done but we would diffentely need some kind of in closed bathroom with shower even though I could do a quick sponge bath. .if 2 people live in it you need some privacy.
      The garage was cool and a must. ..I would put more solar bump it up to at least 600. the couch. .great van for 1 person that's single. ..I would also have my tv and DVD and some charging stations. .you could hang your outside hose on the door and make a shower, and if it's a little chilly or rainy you could make something to in close it. ...

      Only if I were Taylor Swift and Mike did all the driving but I'd bet he ditch the bike and the van in want to buy a mansion and have kids a couple of dogs a cat and a fish tank.

      Regarding the diesel heater under the seat, is the furnace outside of the unit or is it's exhaust routed outside of the van?

      Everything looks very well built and thought out, but the MANBUN, friends don't let friends wear manbuns. It's the millennial version of the mullet, and we all know how much people regret having pictures of themselves sporting a mullet!
