Building a van wasn't easy or cheap...

But hopefully some of these tips and things we used will help ease some of the van life building struggles.

We were able to locate some hard to find items on Amazon and it definitely helped save quite a bit of money.

Before

After

 

We purchased our van used.  It is a 2008 Dodge Sprinter 2500 170" wheelbase with the high roof. As we knew we would be living in the van full time, we wanted the extra space over the 144" wheelbase.  This allowed us to have a king sized converting bed and a bathroom and shower in our van.
