Course Overview

When the Covid pandemic upended everyone’s lives, Jon and his wife acquired a cargo van, converted it into a camper van, and spent 6 ½ glorious, inspirational months in wild places, often with six miles, not six feet of social distancing. In this workshop, we will discuss all aspects of VanLife, from choosing the most appropriate vehicle for your needs, to camper conversion, to Van Camping, to working remotely from the van. There is no ‘right way’ to build a camper, but we will discuss the pros and cons of various systems for sleeping, cooking, heating, providing electricity, water storage, refrigeration, and in general, making a tiny space into a comfortable, enjoyable home and workplace.
