Simple, Easy No Build Camper Van Life Conversion Setup Tour

Building a van can be overwhelming, cause a lot of aggravation, and waste a lot of time, money, and energy – UNNECESSARILY. This build follows the idea of a MODULAR, MVP (Minimum Viable Product) development approach: start with the simplest setup, do a trip, and then add ONLY what you find you need. this eliminates the common tragedy of overbuilding. Since it’s very modular with little modification to the body, it’s also very easy to change the layout as needed. Stop worrying, go simple, and you’ll figure it out as you go!

    "Super, super comfortable bed?" "Super easy to install flooring?" Is there a uncomfortable version of comfortable? Is there a hard version of easy to install flooring? Super super unnecessary use of the word super. Super unneeded use of the word super. I like how simple the build is. Your repetitive reference to unnecessary shit should also apply to the unnecessary use of the word super.

    You see all of these extravagant van builds, and they are something else, but there are several factors none of them seem to address. A vehicle is going to come to end of life at some point. All the money put into those extravagant builds is lost. Seems that a tiny house would be a better investment for that material. Also, what do they do if their van is involved in an accident? What if its stolen. Both are likely scenarios. For a van build it makes more sense to build something minimal that can go into the next van. You seem to understand that and your build is intriguing to me because of it.

    I really liked your video and presentation, though I’m a foot taller than you or more (7 feet). Now, with fuel prices so high, I wonder how Nomads are doing as they have been accustomed. I drive a Sienna minivan but not much agility to get around in it besides driving at this time. I’ve decided to subscribe because of your helpful information. I’m in Orange Park, Fl. I look forward to other videos from you. Peace.

  7. Sharon Adcock on March 24, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    You crack me up , i needed a good laugh 😃 , get rid of all your extra Shit!

  8. Luis F Feliciano Dimagiba on March 24, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Great idea about doing the minimum install first and then learn from your first trip.

  9. Joel Sasseville on March 24, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    I agree with your approach. Find your needs than build it up from there. Don’t wait till its perfect to start, it will never be perfect.

    No kitchen sink? No insulation in Canada?

  11. Luis Carrero on March 24, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    I really like the idea of those picture frame holders on the rear door glass covers!!!

  12. plutoplatters on March 24, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    the chocolate curtains ! fantastic color choice… dig browns

  13. Bruce Hilton on March 24, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    I know this video is a month old but I still feel I had to,. It seems you were the one of the few that get it. I traveled many years for work from upstate New York to Florida every year with a simple set up like yours that serve me well. Enjoy your video I have subscribed looking forward to more

  14. LollyGaggler on March 24, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    I love your simple yet very functional build…good job!

  15. San Dee Dobberstine on March 24, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Day…night. Day…night. 😂🤣😂

  16. plutoplatters on March 24, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    I like the bins vs. cabinets that would shorten the width of the van… really their NO different than cabinets " a rectangle with a door (lid) "

  17. MELODY MUNRO on March 24, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    Is it just me or is this just coming through one speaker?

  18. Erica Petty on March 24, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    I have a hundred questions…No insulation…how was the temperature in the cold? Do you have a small heater? Does the wood paneling insulate just as well as insulation? 97 to go lol……Simple and functional – that’s up my alley…..

  19. Li1ag on March 24, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Some pedo van build you got going on there

  20. plutoplatters on March 24, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    The second a Van is seen…it’s NOT discreet. ( little humor now)

  21. Luni Bom Bom on March 24, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Love how clean this is. If you spray paint the window panels black on one side, it’ll help the van to appear more stealth. Most people will know this is a camper van unless you’re okay with that, then who cares.

  22. She Hack on March 24, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    love it!

    Duuuude, this is the BEST vlog I have seen on the subject, you are sooooo funny! I could not agree more. I am doing a build and keeping it super simple. Mine came with a rubber floor mat in the cargo area and I’m just keeping that. I also found the plastic molded walls they put in some cargo vans for work, they keep nearly the same width in the rear of the van and add some style. Question: is the 15 inch high bed measured to bottom of the platform, so 15 inches of clearance under the bed, or does that include the foam height? I would love to see more detail on your curtain rod and curtains for keeping the light out. Thank-you for taking the time to share:)

    If you freeze drinking water in gallon jugs you’ll be able to keep your cooler cold and your food safe. You’ll have water for cooking as it melts!

    I am impressed, and yes I do think your correct. As gasoline is going up in price so many van builds have used a lot of wood and have a lot of extra weight. My self I have been checking on light weight commercial kitchen wall panels and kitchen wall paneling there easy to clean and some having fired listing for both Canada and the U.S.A.
    I have been wanting to do a van build for the last four years. I want a van to be used as a student researcher on BLM land as part of earth science project and with commercial livestock grazing so I want things to be modular and can be interchangeable depending on location and elevation. I also like your Ford Vans Doors.
    Because of my locations that I want to work in as a student researcher can have a wide range in temperatures in a 24 hour of over 75 F degrees insulation is needed.

    One thing I did think I wanted was a wall in mud/snow room area 6 feet by 2 or 3 feet that was a drained shower pan area that some how I had to add that extra area to a vans living area but was not able to figure out how to do that.

    You know you could’ve put spray insulation on the ceiling and not loose any height or and cover with reflectix for a silver shiny ceiling or you could have put some of that thin wood that you’ve got on the sides. You also could have sprayed behind that thin wood panelling or used reflectix. You are gonna want some insulation.

    Just Don hit yourself in the roof

  30. Jordan Williams on March 24, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Have you considered a high-roof can for headspace so you could sit upright/stand up inside it?

  31. Jack le Hobo Furtif on March 24, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Big minimaliste……..juste un bed …..manque plus que ‘une lady…… Latcho Drom . Export. France .

  32. SHANNA Pineda on March 24, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Can’t hear you

  33. Tawny Schlienz on March 24, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    So you don’t plan on using the van for winter adventures since no insulation? But I do like the simple layout. I like simple.
    No lights? No solar? So no power? I have battery operated lights for my van build. I have a couple solar panels to run my duel zone fridge freezer. I’m not dealing with ice anymore. I’ve evolved. Lol. And I like to bring hamburger and steak and I can keep em frozen and stay out longer in the bush. Bcuz freeze dried steak isn’t my think. Lol. I’ve got a solar generator for powering a fan, phone and a portable tv for the days when it’s too nasty outside

  34. ROG on March 24, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    Lmao!! I like that he says "shit". Instead of stuff. Nice basic build. Cant wait to get my van too!!

    Smart approach to outfitting your van! Looking forward to seeing what you did in your cooler. I’ve been trying to come up with something to keep my food out of the water.
