I met Mark in Yosemite. He is an engineer from the UK who had built out a van for a 9 month climbing trip. It was cool to meet him because had used my van conversion how-to info to help him with his project.

More info on my How-To Guide can be found here:

In this video Mark explains how he converted this van on a tight budget (buddha?!). He tells you about the tools he used and the techniques building the bed, shelving, drawers and kitchen units… also a few other hacks that made his vanlife an enjoyable experience.

I particularly liked how he created his quick-to-use folding bed that created a seat which he could also cook from. His ingenious use of cheaper materials where it doesn’t matter – and better ones where it does – ensured he kept his build cost (and time) down.

This van is a great budget road-trip van – it focuses on the main things; storage, sleeping & cooking. It features a great water system and some great carpentry.

It is great meet people from all over the world who have used my guides to do their van conversions and in-turn share their creations with you!
