Favorite Vans From the Road

We’ve seen a ton of awesome adventure mobiles in our travels. Here are some of our favorite vans as well as a couple other cool rigs.

We saw this van parked in Ocean City, Maryland out in front of K-Coast Surf Shop!

Florida Van Life 2

This VW van belongs to Richie. You can learn more about him and his vehicle HERE.


Coffee to go anyone? Head to New Orleans if you want to see this awesome adventure mobile!

Yellow toyota van in San Francisco

One of many reasons why we love San Francisco.


Spotted this sweet ride outside the New Orleans Museum of Art!

All the way from Alaska. We saw it in Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Florida.

Adventuremobiles8We actually got to RIDE in this van! It was part of the TV show Cookscraps!

adventureSpotted this rig in Florence, Oregon! The truck is original and came with the camper. Year? 1965!

Van on?! Van on!

adventure1Swooooooon. What’s not to love? Cyle (pronounced Kyle) put a Subaru engine into this baby and is planning on making it a 4×4. Not enough words to describe this awesome van.

Both of these Toyota Dreamwheels we spotted just a few feet away from each other in Austin, Texas. Haven’t stopped thinking about them since we saw them!


New Orleans is good for lots more than just food and jazz and partying. It also has a sweet selection of adventure mobiles like this one here.

Adventuremobiles4And this one here! We literally made a U-turn to go check this one out.


Ugh, the Chinook. A 1976 Toyota Chinook. Too many memories in it to tell. Click HERE to see more about this one.


This here Scout makes our hearts go pitter-patter. Time to go off-roading y’all! Yee-haw!!


We went to grab beers at The Wedge at Foundation in Asheville one day and this perfect little bug specimen was right there. Check out the visor!


Our 1998 Toyota 4Runner. We’ve taken out the back seats and made a makeshift bed in the back, added a hitch with a box and have so far travelled in it from Asheville, North Carolina all the way to Portland, Oregon and down to Las Vegas where it eventually stranded us.

Van life

We’re currently traveling in our 2018 Dodge Ram Promaster City with a Wayfarer Van conversion kit!

Seen any good adventuremobiles lately? We’d love to know what it was and where!
