We are 4 months into our Sprinter Van conversion and it is starting to look pretty amazing, if I do say so. Just a month after our little bundle arrived, we found our Sprinter, the dream-mobile for any true adventurer. But with zero experience on converting a van, a great amount of time had to be put into research, prior to even beginning any actual physical labor . Not to mention, we now had some precious cargo in tow and needed to make everything much more safe & secure then we would of done for just ourselves. (The Husband litterally spent 3 days alone on just securing baby’s seat to the Van)
Since there doesn’t seem to be any paying positions for a couple, a baby and a dog to tinker around with their own van conversion (super lame), all of this has been occurring on evenings and weekends after work, and inbetween bouncing, feeding, swaddling, and making silly faces at a newborn.
Soooo, this process could go waay-hay quicker, if one had a little more free time, but we are just stoked to have got this much done so far. It is awesome being able to customize a space completely the way you want!
