Lovin’ the idea of the #Vanlife but not sure where to start? VanDOit walks us through the entire process of building out your own custom camper van. In this episode, we talk about everything from choosing the right size van, gas vs. diesel, DIY vs. pro, how to get an RV loan on a custom van, where you can park and sleep, what options you need, and more. They even tell us what you need to watch out for if you’re buying a used van as the foundation of your own conversion project.

This is just Part One! If you really want to geek out, be sure to find and subscribe to the Bikerumor Podcast on your favorite player. In Part Two, we go full geek on how to create the perfect electrical system for your camper van, discussing everything from batteries to solar to alternators and so much more. Seriously, our heads almost exploded by the end of that one. Part Three discusses all the creature comforts, insulation, paneling, and everything you put inside the van. It’s a killer mini-series, stay tuned. And be sure to check out our VanDOit factory tour, too!
