Can't Afford Rent? Convert A Minivan Into A Camper For $200

Can't Afford Rent? Convert A Minivan Into A Camper For $200

#vanlife, #rvliving,#gloriouslifeonwheels,#budget,
Oh my. For Only $200 you can convert a minivan into a basic simple liveable space. Van Life and rv living doesn’t get any more budget friendly than this. This minivan conversion meets all your basic needs? It has a comfortable bed, a kitchen area, toilet, running water, and even a garage to store your extra equipment and supplies. While this minivan does have a refrigerator and small power system, those items aren’t included in the basic build cost as many nomads start out without either a refrigerator or powe4 system. Inl recently met a young man at the Home On Wheels Alliancr Bring HlYour Own Vehicle Build whonl had been living in his van without a power system for three years!!
Simplicity and the easy build are things that stand out in this build. Check it out for yourself.and see if it isn’t something you could do. Let me know in the n comments what you think of this build my Tim from MoBang FoYoBucks.

    What a beautiful spot to camp!

  6. Sondra Joyce on January 10, 2023 at 4:13 am

    That toilet is SO cool!

  7. Stephanie Simmons-Ashorobi on January 10, 2023 at 4:14 am

    This review with Tim was just awesome.

  8. My Charmed Unicorn on January 10, 2023 at 4:16 am

    Bed- please be aware of what you buy on Amazon. I just bought one of these recommended by a different person and when I got it the padding was supposed to be 3 inches it’s not even an inch it’s like a glorified mattress pad. So make sure you read the Description well. Mine did say new and improved model. People had complained that they couldn’t fit the chair with the pad on it in the bag that was provided in the reviews. So the company doesn’t give you a good padding now and you don’t get a bag at all. So that’s what complain and get you and the price went up.

    I love what Tim has there. Awesome

    Clever, impressive, and well use of space!

  10. dross24MA on January 10, 2023 at 4:17 am

    P.S. I LOVE your video interviews – my how you have grown in your abilities since I first "met" you. Congratulations, Lady!

  11. Anabella on January 10, 2023 at 4:17 am

    You didn’t show his bed

  12. Eileen McLoughlin on January 10, 2023 at 4:19 am

    I wish you’d show how he showers.

  13. oddsandendsHBG on January 10, 2023 at 4:21 am

    Great video. I love Tim’s organization and the simplicity of everything.

  14. Grace Weber on January 10, 2023 at 4:22 am

    Good job Tim. Wish I have a minivan so I can go camping with my dogs.

  15. Brandy Miller on January 10, 2023 at 4:22 am

    Does anyone know how to get a hold of Tim?

  16. Graham Whittaker on January 10, 2023 at 4:24 am

    If only the world was full of Tim’s πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘β€οΈπŸ™

  17. Tiny Mission on January 10, 2023 at 4:25 am

    I would end up spending $200 on the spices. Have you seen how much those cost lately? I’d have to settle for living in a cardboard box on that budget. Tim is creative, resourceful, and so genuinely humble. A super nice guy.

    Great easy build! Great video by the way πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦β€οΈπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  20. Jean L on January 10, 2023 at 4:27 am

    I really love seeing what Tim has created. And to see his beautiful smile when you tease him. Thank you for featuring his work!

  21. Andy on January 10, 2023 at 4:27 am

    Where do you camp?

  23. Edward C. on January 10, 2023 at 4:28 am

    Hint: always disclose length of the bed for us 6 footers.

  24. Virginia Mueller on January 10, 2023 at 4:30 am

    I never get tired of seeing how this man has his van set up. Good Luck and Safe travels

  25. Maria Betancourt on January 10, 2023 at 4:31 am

  26. aim5419 on January 10, 2023 at 4:32 am

    I can’t wait to get on the road and meet new friends! Thanks for sharing and posting!

  27. Jason Sandifer on January 10, 2023 at 4:33 am

    I just happened to see your channel, and others similar channels recently, and I think that you, and others sharing their actual reality, and some have expressed some of the up, and down sides to van, RV, or vehicle living.

    I believe that it is very helpful, and beneficial to others who may be thinking about this type of living without actually thinking through, about the some of the realistic problems that could occur with vehicle or van living etc.

    People need to know what up sides there are, as well as some of the down sides of vehicle living.

    I believe this channel, and other channels have been informative to others, including myself.

    Although, I am NOT living in a vehicle or anything like this.

    I feel that you , and others YouTubers sharing this with your viewers will be very helpful.

    I wish you ALL the Best with your traveling endeavors.

    I shared this with another traveler as I watched their YouTube channel for the first time, as yours, and I shared with them this information that may be helpful to you as well to others.

    Therefore, I would also like to suggest a few Safety tips, and items that may help you, or others in your viewing audience.

    Although, you may have knowledge of this already,
    I am not sure, so I hope this will be helpful to you, others or someone.

    *Keep a Extra working cellphone with you or in your vehicle.

    You can purchase inexpensive phone with a very low monthly price between 25, 35, 45, dollars a month with unlimited data and text, and some have Nationwide coverage

    Do your research for the best fit for you

    Carry Several Extra portable phone chargers, and cables.

    Consider theses items:

    *Mini portable power charging station.

    I have also seen outdoor portable solar powered power stations, that can be recharged from sunlight this may be very useful to have, to power your devices.

    *Cellular signal booster for outdoor use, and camping situations to boost or amplify your cell reception,
    Research to see what you prefer.

    *Very Inportant:
    Invest in a SOS distress electronic signal device, this a kind of device can send out a distress signal with your exact location.
    There are various types of these devices, and including devices that can be used when boating or camping situations.

    *Some have emergency Strobe lights SOS signaling with location alerts, and location updates that can be sent to your family, and emergency first responders.
    Some can be synchronized with your smart watch or phone.

    You can check online, and on Amazon, research what SOS devices will be a good fit for you.

    *Mini portable vehicle battery charger-( portable vehicle battery jumper cables )

    *Vehicle Jumper cables

    *Keep a Fire extinguisher handy

    Mounted Dashboard camera front and rear possibly.

    Exterior vehicle cameras
    Interior vehicle cameras

    *Flashlights or pluggin spotlights

    *Portable spotlights, and lanterns

    Keep a few whistles around with you, and in your vehicle possibly in your vehicle’s center console

    *A set of long range 2 way radios, walkie talkies, with others during trips, some have 100 mile radius keep for emergencies.

    Use your own discretion regarding the use of any weapons.

    Don’t forget to bring
    Bear Spray
    Pepper spray
    Where is allowed

    Keep in contact with your family, friends etc.

    Although, I just noticed your YouTube channel, and other similar channels.
    You seem Very Aware of your surroundings and Alert, and you may be aware of many of these suggestions, however, I Don’t know, so I just posted this anyway to help anyone who may benefit from these suggestions.

    Keep up with the latest Weather Updates, beware and prepare for unexpected Weather events and conditions.

    Keep your vehicle gas filled
    Don’t chance your Safety by running your vehicle fuel or gas too close to Empty.

    Fill it up anyway, it will save you alot of time, and headache later on.

    Keep Extra financing, and savings for any unexpected issues, vehicle repairs, and overnight stays, in a emergency or if you need to rest indoors.

    Keep Enjoying Yourself,
    Keep Enjoying the outdoors, and Nature

    Just..Please continue to
    Be Positive, Safe, and Alert..
    Wishing Success, Well-being and Happiness You All.

    God Bless You, and everyone
    Traveling, or living in their vehicles, Vans, RVs, etc.

    Please Be Safe…

    1. I noticed his cabinet base slants back toward the wall, allowing for more foot/leg room. What a good idea, worth mentioning and emulating (0:26). Yes, we all want counter space but we also need foot and leg room. This is a good alternative.
    2. His use of a hard solar panel and the storage system is so simple – it is not susceptible to being broken by something being pressed against it the way "portable" panels are.

    He is always so creative on a dime I love it! ❀
