Ratings & Reviews
Van Builds From Our students
MAX & SALENA
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.
Eamon & Bec
From the very beginning of our Sprinter Conversion, Scott’s build was a source of inspiration and guidance. He was (and continues to be) extremely responsive to any questions asked via social media and always goes above and beyond with a detailed reply. Having had the pleasure of meeting Scott in person, we confidently say that he is an expert in this field and to top it all off… he’s a GREAT guy!
- Scott and his sprinter van build tutorial are inside Van Life Academy
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.
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.
Mara & Alex
Mick & Ken
Helped us realize how much we need which is going to save us time, money. That extra money we saved helped us with the trip.
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"
This is probably the most in depth guide I've seen so far
Sophie & Mark
it's a great one stop shop to gather all the valuable information needed to convert a van. The information is in great depth and there's some amazing contributors sharing valuable information. The value is awesome! Our first thought was that the information is sourcable for free but when we went through the course we realised just how much time it would take to get this information and that fact that the contributors are so reputable you can be reassured the information is good.
Understanding everything is so much easier with van life academy
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
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.
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.
I’ve been wanting to see something like this for newbie van lifers for a LONG time, and I’m really happy it was created. I really feel like the creators of this course touched on every single thing related to converting a van and living on the road. I think it’s organized really well and put together in a way that even someone who is a total beginner can understand it and start the process of buying their van, building it, and hitting the road.
Alex & Sara James
When we started planning our own vanlife experience we scoured social media looking for inspiration and ideas. We quickly found Scott’s van and were inspired. Having the chance to see his van in person during our first build was a huge help. His knowledge and attention to detail set him apart from so many others in the community. I would highly recommend this program for anyone interested in vanlife.
- Scott is a teacher inside Van Life Academy
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.
