Having a bathroom in your van conversion is one of the most hotly debated van life topics! Some vanlifers think they’re a complete waste of precious space whilst others couldn’t live without one. I definitely fall into the second category! In fact, the first thing I did when we bought our van was google Sprinter Van Bathroom. Luckily I was greeted with lots of inspiration and ideas, minor panic over! Read more

We often get asked where we found our van build ideas, who inspired us and how we tackled our van conversion. Firstly, we never planned to convert a van (or own a camper). In fact, it wasn’t until Will announced to me he’d bought a van (in exchange for the car he wrote off on black ice!) that I realised we were actually seriously doing this! Read more

There are a lot of options out there for roof racks on your van, and even more options for mounting your solar panels. Some of these options really aren’t cheap! We opted to make a DIY van roof rack during our conversion mainly to save a bit of money but also because it gave us maximum flexibility on how we mounted our solar panels. Read more

We work on the road, and in order to do that effectively we need a good, reliable internet connection. We’re often asked how we get internet in our van so here’s how we did it! Everything you need to know about our antenna, 4G router and data package that all combine together to ensure we can work effectively whether in the UK or Europe. Read more

We get a lot of questions about our Happijac Bed Lift. Let me start by saying we love our bed lift! The Happijac was a perfect solution for us and we’re so glad we persevered and installed one. They’re made in America so if you’re based over there they are much easier to get hold of! If you’re in the UK like us, or in mainland Europe it’s a little harder and certainly more expensive. We’re proof it’s possible though! Read more

It takes just 15 minutes of driving for us to have a full tank (16 litres) of hot water in our van! No electricity, gas or additional diesel required, and let me tell you it feels like absolute luxury!

When we first researched our van build Will came across a few professional RV companies in America that used the coolant (glycol) line from the engine to heat their water. Genius! Read more

Deciding on your van layout

Van conversions are pretty amazing really. Everyone is working with a similar sized, very small space and yet there’s so many different layouts out there. Every time I think I’ve seen it all a picture pops up on Instagram and I’m in total shock they managed to fit that into a van! Read more

Converting your van for winter

Whilst some vanlifers follow the sun and warm weather, when winter hits we actively seek out the snow. We love winter and were clear from the beginning we’d be living in our van in some pretty extreme temperatures. Read more
