We bought a 2016 RAM Promaster and we absolutely love it! I specifically like the promaster because it is slightly wider (which makes it feel roomier) than a Sprinter or Transit, and usually more affordable.. but I’ve seen great conversions of all those and more!

You don’t need to fully have a plan before diving in, but definitely do a lot (a LOT) of research and have a basic idea of what you want going in (do you want a solar system? Bathroom? Sink? Stove? Oven? Will you be living full time or just traveling? Warm or cold climate? Etc). Once you start, everything else will fall into place soon enough!

There are so many great resources out there for van conversions. We loved Bec & Eamon, Far Out Ride, & Gnomad Home just to name a few. From our experience, most van lifers are so happy and willing to share their experience, offer advice, chat about builds, and meet up- even the big social media accounts!

Best of luck!
