Vlog: Van Build Preparation + Layout

Van Life Mercedes Sprinter | Van Conversion | Van Layout | Sprinter Conversion | Sprinter Layout | Van Build

We just purchased a 2019 Mercedes Sprinter to convert into our new home! (If you missed the big announcement, read all about our plans here). The first step in our Sprinter Conversion was to spend hours (and $$$) at The Home Depot, remove the cargo partition (tip: sell this on Craigslist…we made $500!), and to plan the layout.

For our layout, we are making it almost identical to Sara and Alex James, but also taking influence from Dynamo Ultima. These are our two favorite vans layouts that we have seen, as they both have showers in them. We have purchased both of their van manuals, which have been incredibly helpful!

    I love being able to see firsthand your van build and maybe even helping a bit with it!
