A year after starting the van conversion, we’re still home, working hard on the van… BUT, things start to get interesting as we just sold our house, the van conversion is 90% completed and we’re finished with our jobs! We definitely are getting very excited, but also super stressed out as time just flies and we have so much to do…
July 15th 2017: Last day of work
August 15th 2017: We are officially house-less!
August 15th 2017: We start living full time in our van! We’ll take about two weeks to visit our family and friends.
September 1st 2017: We embark on our journey across North-America!!

We only review products that we tried and researched throughout. We’re not sponsored by any of the products we review and we pay in full for everything. We converted our van during the years 2016-2017 and are testing our gear since then. This is a real-world, unbiased review; we hope it helps you in any way!
