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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Noemi Lucero

Understanding everything is so much easier with van life academy

Virginia M

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.

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.
