This Guy Converted His Old Van Into An Awesome Hobbit Home You’ll Envy

Old-Van-Into-Awesome

Cud Eastbound’s ’77 Dodge Camper has seen a good deal of North America, but it’s about to spend a winter doing something completely new. Luckily, the vintage van, who is fondly referred to as “Night Danger” by its owner, doesn’t have to worry about navigating icy roads or starting its engine in the frigid morning air.

No, all “Night Danger” has to do is keep Cud and his pup warm throughout an entire Yukon winter. While that’s no easy task, it’s safe to say that “Night Danger” has some help. After two months of traveling through Canada, it will take an extended rest stop in Dawson City, Yukon, and team up with a wood stove and some serious straw insulation to keep its inhabitants from freezing.

Where Cud Eastbound will set up shop for the Yukon winter.

All this outhouse is missing is walls, toilet paper, and running water.
