This Mitsubishi Fuso camper is a small home with four-wheel drive

“Van Life” is extremely popular, both among young travelers looking to save money and Instagram influencers who emphasize free-spirited living in their posts. But this Mitsubishi rig goes far beyond a traditional Sprinter van with some fairy lights.

This former wilderness fire facility has been converted into a custom RV that owners Heather and Dana have lived in full-time for the past six months. In this video they give viewers a complete overview of their facility.

The truck itself is a 2007 Mitsubishi Fuso FG140, which is a favorite of serious overlanders thanks to its massive 4.9-liter turbodiesel inline-four and standard all-wheel drive. The couple purchased this example with just 50,000 miles and upgraded it to include a raised suspension for 37-inch tires and an upgraded front bumper with winch and integrated taillights.

Otherwise, changes are minimal, with two heated seats and an Apple CarPlay head unit being the only changes to the Mitsubishi’s cabin. But the truck’s real magic lies in the custom composite camper shell, which rests on a spring-loaded subframe to prevent the interior from excessive vibration on dirty dirt roads.

Inside the 15-by-8-foot box is a queen-size bed, a kitchenette with an induction cooktop, sink, refrigerator, and microwave (which Heather assures viewers they actually use frequently), as well as a bathroom with a shower and a composting toilet. A dining area with a stowable table transforms into a guest room when the couple has visitors. Traditional house-style air conditioning, Starlink internet, and a water heater more or less make the Mitsubishi feel like a home for a couple and a dog.

Solar panels on the roof provide 1,200 watts of power and charge 600 amp-hours worth of batteries to power and cool the truck. The rest of the video shows more hidden features in the RV shell, including a convenient locking, pull-out storage box designed to store the couples’ mountain bikes after they reach the trailhead.

In a past life, I lived in a van for about six months, and while it was fun, it was also hard. No water, no shower, no toilet, no internet; It was difficult to actually make it a home. Apparently what I needed was an upgrade from Van Life to Truck Life.
