French Couple’s Camper Van Conversion for Tour Across the Americas

Throwback to a few years ago, early in our tiny house travels, when we met up Camille and William, an extraordinary van life couple,

They parked next to our tiny house for the day at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Just a couple months earlier, Camille and William shipped their DIY camper van conversion from France to Canada.

From there, they took off for an epic road trip across North and South America, as part of their Project Cap'A.

As an architect and engineer, they were interested in exploring a variety of sustainable architecture projects along the way.

"Cap'A is above all an irrepressible desire to hit the road and roll into the unknown.

Go on an adventure, set course for Architecture, to discover techniques, local know-how and meet the builders of yesterday, today and tomorrow."

In Ecuador

Over the previous year, they converted a beautiful T4 VW transporter van into a DIY camper back in France. They made the interior layout to feel homey and optimized the space to meet their minimalist living goals over their planned epic road trip. 

Ultimately, they did an impressive job with clever, simple van conversion. And after a year-long expedition, beginning in Montreal, they made it all the way to Argentina!
