Earlier this year, Alex Honnold upgraded his road life setup by transitioning from his 2002 Ford Econoline E150 (which he lived in for nine years) to a much more spacious 2016 Dodge Ram ProMaster.

His new snazzy home-on-wheels—built out and designed by fellow professional climber, Mason Earle—features a variety of improvements, including the ability to fully stand up, much more space to train, and artistic climbing-inspired interior decor, such as an etched outline of El Cap on the inside of the van’s doors and repurposed Black Diamond cam lobes.

Living in a car reminds you that you don’t really need that much to be totally content, live a fulfilling life, and be happy.
