It’s been a long day exploring the backcountry, and all you want to do is kick up your tired feet and relax. The only issue is you’re 10 miles down a dirt road and a cold wind is starting to blow through your campsite. There is nothing wrong with tent camping but being stuck inside your tent for hours on end if (and when) the weather turns sour can be a pain.
Looking Into Van Upfits
Campervans can turn your long weekend more comfortable, bringing the ease of home into the most remote of places. You don’t have to rough it every time you head outdoors, sometimes having a comfortable bed and a cookstove out of the wind is just what the doctor ordered! And who wouldn’t choose a compostable toilet over a hole in the ground?
With the Van Life movement in full swing, there are innumerable resources on how to build and convert your own mobile home. It can be difficult sorting through all the information to figure out what’s right for you.
You don’t have to just jump onboard the van life train and buy a panel van; you can test the waters first.
With the increasing number of people interested in road-tripping the national parks, many companies out there are renting out full converted vans for you to take on your escapist adventure.
If you’re interested in eventually settling down with your own camper van one day, taking a fully converted van out for a weekend joyride might be a good option for you. Choose a company that has vans that are fully upfit and might fit your needs down the road.
