After a trial run of nearly a year in our 1997 Ford Econoline we went all in and bought ourselves a big rig, a 2015 Dodge Ram Promaster. We work full time, and travel when possible, in pursuit of the vanlife dream. The goal with the van was a modern, mobile living space with an emphasis on the kitchen; we like to cook! Check out the build on the blog. Currently I work as a seasonal Wilderness Information Assistant at Olympic National Park.
On May 1, 2015 we traded our 1 bedroom apartment for a 6x10 studio on wheels with a 4.5' ceiling. Working full time while living out of the van relieved us of our biggest expense, rent. We love the van life, and all of the freedom that is associated with it and want to encourage others interested to give it a go! Here you will find some basic DIY tutorials with ideas on how to complete your own camper van conversion.
