For the past 10 years Cyrus Sut­ton, life­long surfer and founder of, has been liv­ing the van life; trav­el­ing around the Amer­i­can West surf­ing while liv­ing out of a cus­tom camper van. Recent­ly, he upgrad­ed his adven­ture mobile by con­vert­ing a 170″ Sprint­er Van, the biggest size avail­able, into the ulti­mate DIY camper van. The van itself has solar-pow­er, is lined with cedar wood, and has a built-in ham­mock, sink, and gas stove, to name just a few of the ameni­ties. Check out this video for some info on how his van was built, what resources he used to come up with the design, and how much the total cost came out to.
