Whether it’s going out to eat, or buying new outdoor gear, we’re always searching for the best bang for our buck. We want great value in everything we buy, from an Ikea bookshelf to a used car. There is a mental checklist in all our heads of what tasks that purchase needs to accomplish before it kicks the bucket. We want the most out of everything we buy.
Van upfits are no different.
Reserarching Upfit Parts Is Important
Paying for products that are going to complete your checklist, and add a couple more ticks to boot, may not always be the most inexpensive option, but it will always be the option that has the best value.
Outfitting your van, whether it is your work vehicle or #vanlife home, shouldn’t be done with products merely because they don't cost that much. Weigh the durability and longevity of the product vs. the cost itself. Some products are not worth the hassle and will be damaged before you can get enough use out of them to make them worth it.
If you use the right products, your upfit might outlast the van itself. That’s where research, and trained professionals, can give you the upper hand.
Van upfits don’t always have to be on your own, doing the research is always rewarding experience, but there are reliable professionals out there who have the knowledge to create an adventure rig, or work vehicle that has the best value for you.
Starting a project this big can be daunting, and you might not have the ability or knowledge to accomplish the various plumbing, electrical, and installation work needed to fully upfit a van.
You don’t have to wade through the vast ocean that is the internet yourself, there are companies out there who have probably already figured out solutions to your problems.
