Let me start off by saying there is no one right way to convert a van. Everyone’s setup will be a little bit different depending on the type of van you have, materials you use, your budget, and of course your design preferences. We’re here to help you decide what you need and walk you through everything you need to consider in the van conversion process.

Below are our guides on how to do your own DIY campervan conversion! I’ve spent months building my own sprinter van home from scratch and met a bunch of other van lifers during my journey who did the same (with I’m sure plenty more to meet still). We’ll help you along your journey as well with step-by-step guides, materials and tools you need, and tons of advice for van life.
