Are you guys going to do the build yourselves, or hire someone to do it?I'm a big fan of tent camping, but DH has wanted a van for years and I finally have in. He bought a Sprinter van over the holidays and is mostly in the planning phase. So far he's upgraded the suspension and we added the ladder and spare tire carrier on the back.

Definitely! Just the ladder rack, suspension and wheels/ tires so far. He is getting recommendations from some friends with Sprinter vans regarding the interior and I think he made some decisions this weekend. He is having the stereo upgrade done professionally, but likes working on vehicles and doing projects like this so most of the rest will likely be us. Haha there is a lot of work in the future but it's a good COVID project. I have something of a pile of hobbies and I'm glad he's got a project to keep busy with these days. And it's a good thing he built the detached garage so tall that it fits in there!Take pictures as you go (please)!!! Super exciting project.
I discovered Ross Lukeman's Conversion Van Course after I had already done about 1/4 of the work, but it saved me a LOT of costly errors. The course was worth every penny! I wish I had found him before I started -- he lays everything out in order, and goes thru each lesson very clearly and step-by-step, unlike most YouTube videos, and gives downloadable materials lists. His electrical stuff is especially useful. Also, once you sign up for his Conversion Van Course all the other courses are included, and you can email him with questions, etc. I still contact him first whenever I run into a issue.He's going to do most of it himself. I do some assisting in these projects but it's his toy....
