500 Day VAN CONVERSION Update – Where Did I Go?

Yes, I know I’ve been away for some time. I haven’t posted videos for almost a year, and I will tell you why in this short blog post.

1) Where have I been?

First things first, I’ve been getting a lot of questions on whether I’m doing okay and where I have been. The answer is: I’m doing perfectly fine. It’s just that I’ve been really busy with my new campervan accessories business (don’t worry, you’ll learn more about it as I upload more videos). 

2) I sold my van!

I wanted to share an exciting thing with you all: I’ve sold my 2016 Sprinter to a friend. Selling the van was bittersweet but I’m so happy to see my friend and his wife enjoying it so far! 

3) Van Build Update

While it seems like this van build is taking me forever (it is), I have gotten a lot done over the past few months.

  • Insulation
  • Cabinet framing
  • Started the wiring
  • Build template, after template, after template
  • Built 6 drawers
  • Started planning the electrical (alternator charging, solar, batteries)
  • Started the galley (kitchen area)
  • High-pressure laminate work
  • Built a ton of nice trim details to polish the overall look of the van
  • Upgraded the speakers
  • Installed flooring
  • Started designing and building the futon-style bed
  • Wardrobe
