10: How to do a Budget Campervan Conversion with Hilary Bird
Play • 17 min

If you want to live the van life, you don't have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a brand new van. You can do with Hilary Bird did - and buy an old $6,000 van and fix it up yourself.

Doing a budget van conversion is a great way to test out van life. You'll figure out if you really like living on the road, and what you might add or change to a campervan in the future.

Hilary of Green Van Go worked with her dad to build a $2,000 van conversion, with a few fun "splurge" items to make it more comfortable for full-time van life and remote work.

In this episode, Hilary gives us a tour of her van, tells us all about her budget campervan conversion, and what she'd do differently in the future.
