As Canada enters its fourth month of COVID-19 lockdown, it only makes sense that sales of camper vans and RV trailers are trending.
Without flights, the only options are to travel by car, by bike, or by foot. (Or horses and mules.) It’s no surprise, then, that “camper” reached its peak popularity in the last 12 months of Google searches.
People are bored, and they want to escape. Building a camper sounds like the perfect weekend distraction with an escape pod as a reward.
But do they really know what goes into a camper conversion?
Well, we thought we did, but we were wrong.
If not for...
- us being in this together,
- keeping each other motivated,
- expecting failure at every turn,
- and planning for a lot of time to screw up and cover our mistakes,
we’d have thrown in the towel long ago.
Highlight reels on social media rarely appreciate the sacrifices that builders make, or the endless stream of challenges that builders face. I'm here to debunk some of the myths of building a camper van while proving that there are ways to overcome these obstacles.
