Van Builds From Our students

United States

We saved a lot of time and money. We think the platform is great for anyone looking to self-convert a van because it gives you a lot of helpful guidance and inspiration and even helps you overcome the big fears and doubts about van life and van conversion.

Trista Shawnee

Basically it's like a tutorial / crash course for anyone looking to get into van life. It talks about everything: if van life is for you, what van to choose, how to do the build out, layout, the really important stuff, the materials that you'll need. Also, you get to hear from real life vanlifers and how they do it. 

Débora Laetitia
Bas & Bianca

When we started to look into van life we had a million questions and didn't know where to start. We really think Van Life Academy covers everything you need to know. It's going to make your progress a lot easier and affordable.

Just wanted to drop in and say thank you for all the inspo and information.

I think it needs a bit of improving. But I can see that they are constantly working on making changes which is promising.

The course gave me confidence that I could not find before"

Robbie Gordon

This is probably the most in depth guide I've seen so far

Kathleen R

Noemi Lucero

Understanding everything is so much easier with van life academy

Virginia M
United States

The course was great but I think it would be better to merge the step-by-step build guides with the rest of the course rather then having them separate

Nippon E.

To be honest we we're quite skeptical at first but we ended up with quite a few very interesting pieces of advice and ideas. I guess it can still be improved. I think it's  really useful for people who want to try van life and don't really know how to start. 

Andre C.
United States

The course was great all the way through, from start to finish, it's very informative and thorough. I love how it was laid out. The tutorials and build out videos are a great way to put a visual on everything your learning. 

Niklas Klaus
Silke Kieran

It really has everything you need to know about van life. We  are so ready to start our life on the road. It has helped us pick the right van and prepared us for everything that can come, and even told us how much it will cost us. It really is the gate to starting van life.

Anisa M

Vanlife Academy contained pretty much everything I needed to know about van life, it was like a one-stop shop. With this course, converting my campervan was much more efficient, and gave me more confidence in the process.

So well structured, you can find the different sections really easily and the information is really consistent. One of the things I really loved is that it has a shopping bit at the end so instead of having to search hours and hours on parts and components there was just a link to it. If it wasn't for the guide I would honestly still be doing it.

I do feel that some sections have too much text. I would find a way to make the text breathe a bit more by adding some more visuals, but the information is still very relevant and helpful

Chelsea Hanslow
Josephine Lorne

Bought the course, it's full of super useful links, highly recommend it to anyone considering it. It was a huge time saver when researching items and materials for the build". There wasn't as many money saving tips as I initially thought. but as I was going through I could see that the admins were updating and adding a lot more.

Niklaus Brunhilde

I really couldn't have done it without Vanlife Academy! My van is fully built and I managed to take it across Europe. It would be helpful if there was more information regarding the laws of van life here in Europe. But aside from that, great course!

Marianne Avdeyeva
Darnell Walters

We initially started planning van life through social media. Indeed it was overwhelming, conflicting, and time consuming. we decided to give van life academy a try and we loved it because of how everything you need is available in one place with consistency. Sure it's paid but we think it's worth it
