I converted a police riot van into a tiny home on wheels
A TINY home enthusiast has converted a police riot van into his residence.
This free spirit was indeed escaping from a more conventional life, but certainly not the authorities.
"This is our tiny home on wheels. We call him Kevlar - he's a converted police riot van," the adventurous dweller behind @livinginkevlar explained about his unusual home.
He welcomed viewers to explore his humble abode - which also had some not-so-humble features.
Along with his husky companion and partner, the home-on-wheels resident gave a voyeuristic look into his typical lazy day in his affectionately named van.
With greenery and water views, the van-living vagabonds seemed to have traded in city life for a more simple life surrounded by nature.
The space might have been small, but it still boasted some swanky amenities.
A big fan of the transformed tiny space was curious about the costs involved: "How much roughly to do this? I love it."
"Thanks! The vehicle was roughly £8000 - a few years ago, they're a bit more now I think - and the conversion was about £3000!" the proud Kevlar owner told of what it took for the cozy conversion.
This equated to about $14,000 - and also encompassed other upgrades.
"That's including all the stuff bought new - solar, heater, fridge/freezer, hob), etc." he explained of the additional features.
One impressed follower seemed ready to get her own life on the road started after hearing that: "Now to me that's a deal. Absolutely love it."
Kevlar is also living a new life - and no doubt a more peaceful one post-riot van days.
"We've traveled thousands of miles. And no matter where we go, we always have our home," the wonderstruck home-on-wheel resident explained of how special the space was to him.
