I thought it would be helpful if I provided a general overview of the conversion process that I undertook when designing and building our first ProMaster Camper Van prototype vehicle.
It’s easy to spend an endless amount of time pre-planning your build, what items and conveniences you deem are necessary for your own personal needs.
For me, the reason I started this project was to achieve a higher degree of freedom. Although there are plenty of trade-offs, the ability to park your house every night allows you to have a more variability in your life. Want to go to Arizona for the week? Florida? Minnesota? You’ve got a place to stay.
That’s all to say that this was a ticking time bomb: A van in the driveway with no real plan on how the build was going to go. Dive into the problem. Sitting inside an empty van is a great place to get inspired.
