Although Calgary-based Yama Nomad  claims that its cool camper vans are “Not your mom and dad’s RV,” its custom-made tiny homes on wheels are perfect for anyone needing a little adventure in their lives. The latest model, the Christopher Wallace, is a 2018 Mercedes Sprinter van with a sleek black facade and an amazingly functional and comfortable interior. Yama Nomad builds custom van homes to rent or buy, but if you have the dough, splashing out on their incredible Christoper “land yacht” model would just about guarantee a lifetime of adventure.

The cab area has two handmade leather seats that make those long journeys comfortable from the get-go. The main living space is comprised of a lounge/dining area, sofa area, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Tiled floors, all-white walls, large windows and skylights create a modern, light-filled atmosphere . In the living area, a small sofa bench with a swivel table pulls triple duty for eating, working or simply lounging about and enjoying the views. Overhead cabinets and shelving allow for plenty of storage. The kitchen is equipped with all of the customary amenities, including a farmhouse sink with a pull-down faucet, a dual burner cook top and a refrigerator and freezer combo. Across the aisle, the compact bathroom features a shower with a removable showerhead and a composting toilet along with a small skylight. The bedroom is located at the back of the van and features a custom platform bed accessible via removable ladder. This small space is outfitted with plenty of storage as well as dimmable LED reading lights, and once again, a lovely overhead skylight. Of course, no adventure vehicle would be complete without storage for equipment. The back of the Christopher features a gear garage with enough space for two bicycles, snowboards, fishing gear, crash mats and more. A rooftop rack offers extra space for larger pieces, such as kayaks. The space also holds the 91-liter fresh and gray water tanks so that the converted RV is adventure-ready at every moment. + Yama Nomad Via Curbed Images via Yama Nomad
