Former Jackass star Jason ‘Wee Man’ Acuna is now living in a van in California, and he gives fans a glimpse inside his mobile home in a new video released this week.
The 45-year-old professional skater and actor who appeared on the MTV stunt show from 2000, showed Van Talk around his humble abode on wheels, that he flew to Arkansas to purchase.
Acuna – who measures up at 4ft 0.5in – last September sold his Hermosa Beach home for $2.37million and now his life is converted into a 4×4 Mercedes Sprinter 144′ wheel base van.
‘Sold the house, sold the farm, this is it,’ he says in the video where he’s seen taking selfies with fans.

Nicknamed The Beast, he give viewers a glimpse inside the toilet cubicle where he showers

He may be recognizable just about anywhere he goes but in the clip Wee Man reveals how he doesn’t desire the glamorous lifestyle anymore.
While living in his motor – nicknamed The Beast because the license plate reads ‘666’ he bathes using a stainless steel shower with toilette.
Acuna demonstrates how the small item delivering water hangs adjacent to the toilet and simply runs onto the wooden floor in the small cubicle. It might look like a tight squeeze but for Acuna it’s just fine.
‘This is tiki floor,’ he says. Gesturing to the toilet he adds: ‘Shower up and clean whatever you did earlier.’

While other stars from MTV’s glory years may be living up with the finest cuisine, bags of flour tortillas are seen in Acuna’s cooking space.
His love of Mexican food is well known in the area. In 2010 he invested in Chronic Tacos which remained open in Redondo Beach until February 2018. But last year he closed the location and reopened in Long Beach where this week’s video was filmed.
Acuna shows fans where he sleeps by unfolding his jack knife bed and stretching out to prove the simple life inside his black vehicle is more than enough room for him.

His ‘entertainment center’ is his cell phone hanging on a clip.
‘And if I wanted to I could have it in stereo connected to my Bose speaker over here and it’s full surround sound,’ he jokingly brags.
‘I could have it in my living room or in my bedroom,’ he laughs as he circles the same space twice.

Acuna purchased the van from an architect named Ron in Arkansas and drove it back home
He flew out to get the van four days after first finding it and making an offer to buy it

‘Every good house has a gym,’ he says as he takes a rope from a box compartment and begins skipping.
Acuna purchased the van – complete with Black Rhino Hard Alloy wheels and a dual light bar on the front – from an architect named Ron four days after first finding it and making an offer.
He picked it up and stayed an hour away at his former cast mate Preston Lacy’s house in Missouri, testing it out for a first night in his driveway after heading out on the town with his old friend.
The following day he was reunited with BMX riding Jackass star Matt Hoffman as he drove to his house and the pair went skydiving.
‘I realize the more s**t you have the more issues you have. I wanted to be on the road. I love traveling. I needed a change in my life. I straight said f**k it. I’m gonna get a van, I’m gonna live in it. I’m gonna do what I want.’
Last September sold his farm and his Hermosa Beach home for $2.37million
