    Hmmm, we get to see the outside of the van and that is all. Seems rather pointless to me, as I cannot access videos at this point in time. Connectivity issues are to blame, not your fault Alex, just my current location.

    A van is always a small vehicle and in particular this one doesn’t offer standing headroom. Beside that its metal body vibrates and rust is an issue. A box van can do better if you like to travel a lot.

    Your van is really nice! You seemed to have thought of everything. It’s nice to know you can actually live in your van. I too have a van it’s a free star so it’s good to know that you can convert them into living out of them. Thank you for the info and the tour. Happy travels! Carol🌻🌷🌹

    He spent more than $15,000. The conversion to 4×4 cost the $15K, but he says the paint job cost another $6,000. He didn’t say if the bumpers with the special lights were part of the 4×4 conversion or were extra. I’m sure outfitting the van with all the camp gear and those Action Packers cost a bit as well. So more like $21,000+.

    Nice bug-out vehicle though, he’s totally prepped for the zombie apocalypse. ;)

    I like the amount of storage that you are able to get into your vehicle. Like the conversion, thanks for sharing.
