OTHER INFO

We are looking to downsize (yeah, you read that right) for our next adventure. We're also hoping to put some of this sale $$ towards an idea we've been wanting to develop. We're in no rush to sell the van, but if the right people are interested...

Feel free to send us an e-mail! We're happy to answer whatever questions you might have. While you're here, you can also check out where some of our adventures have taken us. We have also done some documentation of the build process. Hopefully our conversion will help you explore this beautiful country in comfort.
