3 BIGGEST mistakes people make when thinking about building a van

Finding accurate information that allows you to build a van which works for your lifestyle, and fits your budget without getting overwhelmed and confused is extremely difficult!

1) Not knowing where to start

When learning about vanlife, most people revert to different YouTube videos that share a variety of opinions, conflicting solutions and even inaccurate information. This leads them to more overwhelm and confusion and not knowing what to do next. In this Masterclass Patrick will walk you through the exact steps you need to take to properly plan your vanlife so your don't get lost.

2) Not choosing the right van

Many struggle with finding the right van for their specific needs at a reasonable price. In addition, you also need to know the difference between buying new vs used and your available financing options for both the van and the build itself. Patrick will explain all of this in the masterclass so you get a clear understanding on which approach is right for you. 

3) Underestimating your budget 

Instagram has immensely raised the van building 'standard' and as a result, many find themselves looking into overpriced vans, products, and components that they don't actually need. Instead of building a van for themselves and their goals they end up building it for Instagram and therefore, spend way more then what was originally budgeted. In this Masterclass you'll even learn about budgeting correctly.

Having this resource to learn from is such a gift.

Vanlife is definitely a world that can feel incredibly overwhelming and not everyone has the background or circumstances to do it on their own the right way so having this resource to learn from is such a gift.
