Ideas and Tips, from Seasoned VanLifers…

Check out the VanTools Page for great information on whether or not you need to purchase tools.

Every VanLifer I talk to says the same thing. I have watched thousands of videos on VanBuilds. Even I am constantly searching YouTube and the Internet for ideas and inspiration. That being said, I will only put a few of the top builds I have come across in my thousands of hours because let’s face it, we can’t help ourselves and we all spend too much time watching and not doing!

The other reason is, things change very quickly, and sometimes the information you come across can be outdated.

You will find van build inspiration on everything from people with budgets of a few hundred dollars, to van builds costing $200K or more!

My personal favorite van builds for inspiration have been the people, especially women or couples who have never even picked up a tool in their life, and are able to build an amazing home on wheels.

Van Insulation is a huge topic in van builds. It can be overwhelming and intimidating. I will share my own experiences with this and include links to some of the most knowledgable folks on this subject.

Build Your Own Van

I hesitate to list or recommend any builders just yet. I will build some sort of rating system to help folks find a reputable builder so you don’t get burned like some of the horror stories we have heard. Of course, this does not apply if you are building your own.
