If you’re anything like me a cold outdoor shower in the middle of winter might not sound very appealing! Luckily, there’s now lots of solutions for getting your campervan equipped with hot water so you can enjoy a lovely (albeit quick!) hot shower no matter where you are. Read more

We’ve been living and travelling in our van for over two years now and we’re always being asked if there’s anything we would change about our van. We’re really happy with how our van turned out and whilst we’ve made a few minor changes along the way she’s still pretty perfect to us! That being said, if we ever do another van build there are 10 van build changes we would definitely make. Read more

It’s that time of year again! The weather is getting colder, it’s dark ridiculously early and you’re desperately hunting for all your winter layers. Unless you’re planning on chasing the sun this winter you’re definitely going to need some form of campervan heating to keep you cosy and comfortable. Read more

Next up in our camper van build series is Piglet’s bedroom. We get lots of comments about her kennel area and we’re really pleased with how it came out. When designing our layout we went forwards and backwards on whether to have a dedicated space for our dog. Now that we’ve lived in the van we’re definitely glad we put some room aside for her.

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 van build 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, and we wanted to share the answers with you. 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
