Time for a van update! We converted our GMC Savana van back in April/May 2018 and have since driven over 50,000 kilometres across Canada, living in it full time for over fourteen months. I’m sharing which aspects of our van conversion worked (and those we love!) as well as the ones we have since had to change (and even remove in some cases)
The biggest update yet! In just two weeks, our GMC Savana conversion really became liveable with a proper ceiling, cupboards, under bed storage, seating, solar panel system and more.
Finally, it is time to start our real DIY van conversion! In this update, we add insulation, three layers of flooring (cork, plywood and vinyl), a welded bed and walls – all in 12 days and temperatures sometimes in the minus features.

The day this post goes live, we will be officially on the road indefinitely! Here are the latest upgrades in our GMC Savana conversion before we drive across Canada

The fourth update to our Astro Van Camper Conversion series. We have built a cabinet in between the front seats and the bed, to provide essential storage space when travelling.
Curtains are out, and foil insulation is in! An update on our home converted campervan.
