Interested in vanlife? Here’s what it’s like building your cozy camper van.
Vanlife. By now we’ve all heard of it. It was the hottest travel trend of 2020 and, likely, 2021. But unless you have the budget to burn on a ready-made camper van, getting your vehicle road-ready is a lot of work.
Vanlife had been a notion in the back of my mind ever since I scrolled past my first Westfalia pic on Instagram. I envisioned sleeping comfortably under the stars in national parks and the freedom of the open road. But finding the time (and space in my teeny-tiny neighborhood) to search for and convert a van seemed impossible.
