Daydreaming

The planning and building process is long and involved. How do you keep that initial idea alive, whilst staying flexible and seeing it through to the end?

Step 1

Choosing Your Ideal Spec

Working out your spec first helps dictate all the other planning steps including choosing a van. But how do you narrow down everything you want to include?!

Step 2

Choosing a van that’s right for you

Everyone is different with different priorities. Know what options are out there and what all the sizes are helps you make that big decision.

Step 3

Crafting your perfect layout and style

Designing your perfect layout and style is exciting but it’s easy spend too long on this stage. How to hash out a layout based on your spec and move forwards.

Step 4

Planning the electrics

Electrics is one of those things you can spend as much as you like on. But how do you know what all the bits are, what they do, and how much you need?

Step 5

Gas and water essentials

Gas and water in a build can be massively overwhelming. What are all the parts that make up the systems and how do you choose gas alternatives?

Step 6

Start building (in the right order)

Building in the right order is hands-down the best way to steer clear of common blunders, saving you time, money, and a ton of headaches.

Step 7

Keep building and finish

Building a van is tough. It’s easy to overlook this when you’re dazzled by the beautifully converted vans all over the internet. This is the motivational speech you didn’t know you needed.
