Couple converts 16-year-old van into a compact solar home on wheels

While the exterior of the van is unremarkable, its interior packs all the amenities the couple needs on their journey.

Opposite the bed is a small kitchen unit with a gas cooktop, gas cylinder, sink and a large water tank with a pressure-sensing pump. The tank is connected to an extra hook-up that leads to the rear of the van, where the water is used for quick showers. An L-shaped cabinet accommodates a refrigerator and more storage spaces, and features another section that doubles as a seating structure.
