Minimal Millennials

THE VEHICLE
DETAILS

The Minimal Millennials are traveling in a 2007 Dodge Sprinter Van. The vehicle was purchased in November of 2016 and they began traveling in June of 2017 after converting. It was then remodeled in May of 2018 to optomize the 60 square feet of space and storage. The vehicle runs on diesel and gets between 19-21 MPG. The untouched orignial exterior makes for great stealth camping, as the vehicle can be easily mistaken for a work van.

 
THE INTERIOR
DETAILS

The inside of this van feels like a sohphisticated contemporary tiny home with bright white walls and reclaimed arbor wood ceiling. The black and gray accents fit perfectly with the light maple wood cabinets and drawers used to create ample storage in the kitchen and living space. The smooth walls in the living space resemble a touch of home and create a unique contrast from the tongue and groove paneling in the sleeping area. 8 soft white LED illuminate the space while drawing minimal power from the leisure battery.

THE KITCHEN

DETAILS

One of the reasons Kaylee and Jordan hit the road was to have more time doing the things they loved (like cooking!) They built their kitchen as large as they could to have ample space for food prep. The 2 burner gas stove is fueled by a propane tank under the sink which lasts them about 2 months at a time. They have running water pumped to the faucent from a 33 gallon tank in the back of the bus and a sink that drains into a 5 gallon grey water tank that can be emptied at the flip of a lever. Under the left side of the kitchen counter is a 45 quart DC fridge and on the right side are cleaning supplies and a trash can. Since they cook at least 3 meals a day in their bus, they have a huge assortment of spices on the wall carefully collected from their travels to Morocco and Western Europe

THE BATHROOM
DETAILS

It might not look like there's a bathroom in this bus but, while it's unconventional, Kaylee and Jordan have found ways to have nearly all the same comforts of home. For a shower they have mounted an instant hot water hearer onto the back of the bus which is connected to the water tank and propane lines. It definitely will take a little bit of humility to put on a baithing suit and go for shower off the back of the bus but it definitely would come in handy when parked in remote locations. When in cities, they rely on a Planet Fitness membership to clean themselves regularly. And for a toilet, they have installed a "pee tube" which is nothing more than a funnel connected to a piece of vinyl tubing that runs out the bottom of the bus. Out of respect for the people around them, this is a toilet only to be used in off road locations.
