welcome to small van life

Introducing Small Van Life – for those who are looking to build out their own minivan or small van into a camper. 

This blog is dedicated to the lowly small van and those few souls with vision to turn it into a mobile living space.  If you have vision but are lacking a few skills, start here for information, tips, and resources on how to create your own small van or minivan camper conversion.  This site is geared towards those who like to do things for themselves. Understanding that not everyone has the budget for a fully built-out van conversion or the desire for a larger vehicle, the focus is specifically on minivan and small van camper builds.

Small Van Life is for those who want to take on the challenge of building their own tiny home on wheels, with a focus on popular minivans and compact city type vans. The blog covers the essentials, from designing and planning your van build, to selecting the best materials and tackling the actual construction process.

When I began working on making my own small van camper I quickly realized that most design information and off the self products available for camper van conversions were geared toward larger vans.  I suspect it is because, this is where the money is.  This was a problem because simply put, I don’t have a large van so I don’t have much space.   This meant I needed to use different designs and build most things myself.   The purpose Small Van Life is to pass along information about design and construction I have learned in the process of building out my small van into a camper.  Small Van Life provides step-by-step instructions, creative ideas, and inspiration to help you create a cozy, functional, and stylish living space in your small van or minivan. 

If you’re ready to embark on your own DIY small van/minivan conversion or just looking to tweak your current build, I invite you to follow Small Van Life .
