Adam Croft and Nikki Pepperell with their converted van. Stroud, England. See SWNS story SWVAN; A couple have packed it all in and moved into their new mobile home – an old white van. Adam Croft, 29, and Nikki Pepperell, 32, spent a year converting the van after the cost of renting became too much to bare. They spent £3,500 on the extra-large Ford Transit Luton and a further £6,500 doing it up themselves while living with their parents. The home away from home now has a kitchen, toilet, shower, windows, porch, new flooring, sofa and a bedroom.
