Before we get into the guide, we should say that we're not exactly experts when it comes to electronics, carpentry and mechanics. Although we had a good idea of how we wanted our van to turn out and a rough plan on how to get there, we did find ourselves making up a lot of it as we went along. That considered, it came out great and we learnt a lot along the way that we're now able to share and help others with.

Better yet, we decided to record videos of the whole process to showcase the van build and illustrate all of the top tips that we're going to share. Those videos are all right here in this blog post, but be sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel for future videos too!
