What's Inside Van Life Academy
The course consists of 87 lessons divided into 5 Modules with 100,000+ words, 40+ videos, and 4 different conversions (neatly organized) so you have more then enough information to execute on.
Module 1: Preparing for Van life
This module will allow you to confidently determine if van life is in fact the correct lifestyle for you. We go into detail to explore all the objections you could possibly have and even present practical ways that allow you to get a feel for what van life has in store for you.
There are so many choices and factors to consider when looking for a vehicle to live in. Not only do you need to think of the model and size of your van, but you must also consider your budget, lifestyle, and planned usage of the van (just to name a few). Choosing the wrong vehicle will lead to you wasting thousands of dollars on a van that won’t fulfill your needs.
That's why we give you access to our automated search tool called Vanalyzer. With this you can input all your requirements and it would show you all the different makes, and models that suit your specific needs.
The preparation you do now will become the foundation of your van life. Therefore, it's crucial to do it right. This module makes the process more engaging, hassle-free, and effective.
Module 2: Planning
- consists of 5 lessons
This module will teach you how to properly plan for building out your home on wheels and living a life on the road.
Failure to properly plan will result in mistakes that cost you tons of time and money being spent on trial and error, and what's worst is that you may not even end up with the build you envisioned.
There's hundreds of different decisions to be made and things you need to consider which make starting van life seem overwhelming and impractical as you won't know where to start and what to do next.
We'll show you the exact process and provide you with checklists, illustrations, budget planners, etc..
This way you can:
- correctly design your layout while taking everything into consideration. We simplify this process by giving you inspiration, suggestions, and detailed illustrations on layouts that work well.
- accurately budgeting your entire van build to factor in ALL expenses. This is done with the help of our budget tracker template that presents you with all the different costs you can expect to run into so you can budget each accordingly.
- setting accurate timelines, schedules, and deadlines for each aspect of the build is difficult. Everything relies on dependencies and must be done in proper sequence to avoid backtracking which will cost you time and money. Within Van Life Academy we give you a visual calendar template that has everything ready to optimize the process.
- Before you can get started on your build you need a reliable toolkit. One that is multi-functional and won't blow your budget. We'll provide you with a checklist and links to the exact tools you need.
Module 3: The Build
- consists of 8 lessons
This module gives you a detailed breakdown on the process of converting a van into a home on wheels. It covers every single aspect of the build including: gutting your van, body work, insulation, flooring, walls, ceilings, kitchen, living area, solar electrical system, exterior components, popular upgrades, and much more.
Based on our experience we'll tell you exactly which parts and components to use on each aspect of the conversion to ensure a quality build. Just finding the right parts and components that are a good fit take people a few days worth of time.
Upon completion of this module, you would know exactly how to properly convert a campervan into your home on wheels based on your specific requirements.
Module 4: Build Tutorials
- consists of 64 lessons divided into 3 chapters
If you want even more guidance on your van build this module will give you the opportunity to replicate a van conversion from one of our expert van builders.
Van Life Academy features 4 different Van Builds thought by 4 different teachers (introduced later on this page). Before selecting a step by step conversion guide you would be able to see:
- Who the teacher is and a brief overview of their experience
- Photos/Videos of exactly how the finished build will look
- How much the build will cost
- How long you can expect it to take from start to finish
- And much more…
With this information you can decide which conversion is most suitable for your specific situation allowing you to save tons of time and money as you would be able to replicate their conversion. Almost as if you had a expert van builder by your side guiding you each step of the way.
Module 5: Life on The Road
- consists of 4 lessons
Now that you've got your home on wheels built we'll make sure your van life is as fulfilling and fun as it could possible be. To do this you need to know the best tips and tricks, common issues you may run into, legal guidance to avoid getting in trouble, and how to generate an income on the road so you can work less and travel more.
If that's not enough, we're also working on consistently improving Van Life Academy to add more value and make the process of living van life easier and more affordable. As a member you would get access to all future updates for FREE while others may have to pay a premium.

Was a huge help. So well structured, you can find the different sections really really easily and the information is very consistent. If it wasn't for this guide I would honestly still be building my van.
Just want to say thanks for all your info!! I'm going to start construction next week. I have sourced lots of materials with lots of help from you. Thanks so much for everything.
I had no idea what I was doing and had nothing to do with electrical in my life. This made it so much easier with nice little diagrams to follow, and just made everything a lot clearer than if I had to figure it out myself.
