This is a turn-key, ready-to-live-in, VanLife piece of art that gets 22-25 MPG!
I have spent the last 10 years diving headfirst into tiny living. I have built and lived in numerous vans and sailboats around the world. This build is the culmination of 8 other builds and countless hours of research and design. Everything in this van was done by hand from years of acquiring knowledge. From the 12v electric to the upholstery to the custom rock polishing, it’s all done in-house at Watts Works MFG.
I have a full-service record of all 89,500 miles on this 2.7 l Mercedes turbo diesel engine. This engine has been called a million-mile engine by Mercedes and will go 500,000-700,000 miles easily. This van has been well taken care of and has a long life ahead of it. With build-out, the van gets 22/25 mpg.
KnH Glass Two-Burner stovetop-Propane.
Norcold NR751BB 12V Fridge with a 2-year warranty.
Recessed oak chopping block soft-close drawer.
Each of the 8 drawers is capped in white oak, with Cherrywood drawer pulls.
All drawers have heavy-duty soft-close lockable slides.
The kitchen counter is made from Cherrywood parquet pieces and resin. Each stone was hand-picked from the central coast of California and tumbled for 1 month at Watts Works Headquarters, before being chosen for the design.
It is a joy to cook in this kitchen and the van can accommodate diner for 6 people.

I chose a U-shaped bed design with a removable floating box that splits into two seats, giving you over 10 seating styles, bed setups, and functionalities.
The toilet is hidden in a recessed drawer in the face of the couch.
It can be used there or removed and placed in between the driver’s seats for nightly use.

The sink functions as your hot water outdoor shower. I chose this placement for warming up after a cold swim or cleaning your feet before entering the van.

10-gallon grey water tank mounted under the van with dump station hookups.
