At Get-Away RV, we are passionate about helping folks live out their biggest adventures. For some, a lightweight travel trailer or weekend camper is exactly what they’re looking for, while others are more interested in experiencing minimalist mobile living in a converted van. Van conversions and mobile living are growing in popularity as people try to find ways to reduce their housing costs and environmental footprint. Our team has helped hundreds of clients turn their vans into mobile homes so that they can hit the open road and enjoy all that #VanLife has to offer. But how does one go about remodelling a van, and what exactly does #VanLife mean?
One of the reasons we love van conversions so much is because they provide us with unique challenges. We work hard to find solutions for making an incredibly small space functional, durable, safe and comfortable. Even after our many years of experience transforming vans into livable spaces, each conversion project brings new challenges and gives us an opportunity to learn and grow. DIY van conversions may look and sound appealing, but a few missed steps or overlooked details can majorly derail your project. Our Get-Away RV van conversion experts can guide you through important components of your project, such as:
• Carefully planning your project, including setting a budget and timeline, locating a suitable vehicle if necessary, layout and design, safety, functionality and more.
• Sourcing lightweight, durable and multi-purpose building materials.
• Ensuring plumbing, ventilation and electrical components are installed correctly.
• Weather-proofing windows and flooring.
• Suggesting accessories for added safety, comfort and convenience, such as solar panels, small appliances, organization hacks, food storage, tow packages, interior lighting and so much more!
There are plenty of van conversions out there, and they all offer unique options for creating a mobile living space that suits your needs. We’ve helped families transform school busses into functional family homes, couples convert cargo vans into cozy havens and outdoor enthusiasts design rugged mobile homes capable of withstanding seriously tough adventures. No matter the type of van or where it’s going, the need for exploration and an interest in living more simply is what connects the people inside.
Living in a converted van gives you an opportunity to slow down, consume less, explore creative pursuits and find unique solutions for problems that you might not take the time to solve on your own in different circumstances. The calm, quiet nights help you connect with loved ones just as much as the nights spent changing a flat tire in the pouring rain. You’ll most likely be forced to unplug from technology, and in doing so you might find yourself plugging in more with the outdoors and your companions. More than anything, #VanLife is about making connections with nature, fellow travellers, your family and yourself.
If you are ready to get started on your own van conversion project and experience what #VanLife is all about, then don’t hesitate to contact our Get-Away RV experts. We will be here to every step of the way to ensure that your next adventure is your best one yet!
