Van Conversion Masterclass

Craft Your Perfect Campervan


We understand how daunting it can be to navigate the van conversion world, find the right info and avoid costly mistakes.

That’s why we’ve developed the Van Conversion Masterclass – an online training course that’s all about you and your dream campervan.

With personalized support and guidance, we’ll provide you with the comprehensive knowledge and resources necessary to confidently build your own campervan.

Say goodbye to worrying about parts, techniques, and planning, and say hello to making incredible memories on your adventures!

How It Works

Step 1

Everything In One Place

Spending hours in a YouTube rabbit hole trying to find that one video that can help you is not the best way to learn how to convert a van.

Our extensive library of videos covers everything from planning a water system to building kitchen units (exactly how we do it), ensuring you have all the knowledge you need at your fingertips.

Step 2

Keeping You On Track

We see people part way into a build get fully overwhelmed. There are so many different elements to it and it’s hard to keep track of them all.

How do you know what to buy, what parts work with what, which tools you need (or don’t need), what you can save money on..? The list goes on.

Access our handy resources of checklists, cheat sheets, parts and materials pickers, time planners, and budgeting tools – all designed to make your build process smoother and more organised.

Step 3

Dedicated Support Time

If there was a secret sauce, this would be it!

You’ll have hundreds of questions once you get going and finding someone to answer them all can be tricky (we’ve all been there!)

Wouldn’t it be unbelievably handy to have an expert to ask about the problems you come up against during your build?

That’s why we include weekly group video calls with John to get personalised support and also learn from other people’s questions.

These sessions are key to your success!

Step 4

Be Part Of Something Bigger

Sharing is caring, and being part of a community is the best way to keep you motivated.

Get exclusive community access and join our private online group of course members to experience the process with like-minded people that are all converting their own vans.

Learn from each other, share your progress and enjoy the added motivation and accountability.

Always can rely on Bear Hug campers for a quick, helpful and friendly response to my self build questions - and believe me there are a lot. Never condescending, always encouraging and very much appreciated.

And now...

I’m excited to share all of this knowledge and expertise with you through the Van Conversion Masterclass.

So, if you’re ready to embark on your own van conversion adventure to create your one-of-a-kind tiny home on wheels, come join us in this AWESOME course.

Together, let’s transform your dream van into a reality, and I genuinely can’t wait to see you hitting the open road in YOUR van!
