👩🏻‍💻 Kara’s Behind the Scenes Guide to Editing a Vlog:
🎥 Our current camera setup: karaandnate.com/travel-vlogging-gear/
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

      Go with yours,. get ideas from Sports Mobile and others then design your own interior and build it together. For les than 40k you can convert to 1-ton suspension 4wd, exterior roof and rear sparring /gas can racks, fully plumbed water and heater, propane or electric, solar panels under roof rack for protection too. Full kitchen, custom cabinets and a convertible bathroom with shower. That saves what? $70K as a travel. I get and a much more versatile van.

    This is what happens with everything and idea starts out and it’s great like tiny living and then big companies jump on it and tiny living from building a really nice home for like three $5000 turns into 150,000 come on finding $150,000 I have me a nice little cottage forget about the van I would not spend that much money even if I won the lotto that’s crazy I know some people wouldn’t great but my goodness now tiny living is so expensive you can afford it and that’s why I got started because people couldn’t afford to live in apartments and houses or buy them now you can’t afford tiny living so sad

    Could you just imagine if you guys would install all those things that the Revel has that the Sprinter don't have, BUT WAIT you guys are too lazy to even imagine all those things and even more lazy to actually install them....

  • Deniera

    Honestly I think a lot of the points for the expensive one come from the fact that it was engineered by professionals while you built yours yourselves with a rough idea of what you'd need (in terms of space and storage). Now you actually know exactly what you need and want... so I think if you could totally build your perfect van for a fraction of the cost. $150.000 for a car is just outrageous in my opinion.

    The "sink drain pump" sounds like a tank climbing up a hill and the vertical pantry is no a slide out. For 150k is no good for they could surely find a less noisy pump and have done a tour in the neares IKEA store to find a slide out pantry. I don't argue the overall quality but honestly i saw much better at a fraction of the cost in DIY conversion - or lower budget as well. Just my two cents...

    The more complicated it is the more there is to go wrong and even if you can afford to pay somebody to fix it for you (which most van dwellers cannot) you still gotta find the person and bring the van to them, all of which takes time. Keep it simple...

    They put a lot of convenience in the Revel, but not more functionality for $100,000 more. Although the toilet set up in the Revel way better. And I love, love the roominess of your van verses the the revel, cause at 6’3” their bed and table size are deal killers. Fun comparison, great video.

    There is no such thing as a perfectly built RV but in my opinion this van uzload.info/fun/Z5Vpfmnct42jm4E/video comes close to perfect. I recommend anyone check this out, you won't be disappointed.

    "Gives you just enough room to mount the bed horizontally"... Yeah, I hate those vertical beds.

    Burning up $150K negates almost every benefit of camping in a van. Invest $145K of the money into an Edward Jones account, and use the remaining $5K to covert and old box van.

    A/C is best, but if you can pickup ice every couple days, I had a great experience with a DIY A/C : Plastic ice chest / cooler with a drain to let water out - you could probably reuse it - as you add ice; bilge pump in the bottom to pump ice water up through a heater core (from any vehicle, mine was from a ford bronco I think) and then back down. Add two vents on top, one to let air in, one attach to an adjustable dryer vent elbow - and then a roadpro tornado fan - almost exactly the same size, runs on DC just like the bilge pump; or use a flexible pipe if preferred, and stick the end under your blanket. shivering cold on 100+ F nights. I went with this design because it isn't a swamp cooler, so it doesn't add significant humidity, and works in humid climates as well. Thanks!

    Would you consider taking some of those nifty features and incorporating them into your van through a refit. Bed design seems quite easy to incorporate to your existing setup (keeping the existing seats and have a slim piece drop down to fill the middle - design a foldaway table).

    You can spend $10,000 on your van and have most of the same upgrades. You can also spend $50,000. It just depends on how selective you are. Either way, there is a lot you can do with $100,000 and fancy windows, urine removal and an outdoor table aren't the way I would go.

    If I'm honest although the expensive van has more mod cons I personally would prefer yours, its the feeling of being in a home compared to being in a weekend break vehicle, nice but only for holidays, their are things in the new van that you could adapt to yours if you wanted to but if you were happy with your choices then if its not broken don't fix it. Take care and stay safe x
