Conversion Van and DIY Custom Builds 

Converting a van into a camper is the ultimate chance to create a tiny home and have the freedom to take it with you to whichever destination you want to explore next.

Sprinter van conversion kits tools increase the appeal to live in a converted van while travelling the open road which has definitely risen in popularity over recent years as better and better van conversion plans and kits have come to market.

A sprinter van isn't exactly a jeep, but it sure isn't a "class a castle" either.

Sprinter camper van conversions can be custom designed or completed as a DIY built to meet your needs.

Admittedly, before I decided to go with glamper van, for about a nanosecond I considered building my own van. I’m so impressed with all the women doing DIY builds! I fantasized myself as Rosie the riveter wielding power tools with aplomb. But I knocked that dream out of my head as fast as it entered.
