I’m planning on traveling all over the USA in this van next year and riding the best mountain bike trails I can find. I’m not giving up my life and going full #vanlife, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I put 50,000 miles on this thing in 2020.
I’m in wyoming, on my way to colorado springs and uh, yeah. so far there hasn’t been that much progress made, but i’ve got a couple of my dad was able to find mounts at the local rv store. and then my dad started building a custom rack out of extruded aluminum. it’s easy to like match up with other pieces and i think we’re going to be using we’ll have a few things up there,
But right now we’ve just got the bars and and now one of the coolest ad-ons in the if you need to seat a tubeless tire, if your tires get low in your car, if you the next piece of awesome equipment that i’ve got for this thing is a rear view you know, if you get in an accident, it has the proper time and the date and the while you’re, while you’re driving, we mounted the
Camera right next to the rear panels, through the front, through the top, and kind of make it all look good. now i can block out all the windows and still see out the back. so with my mirrors on the side and the camera in the back. of you, but otherwise you can park it in a pretty good normal parking spot. so this is the last time this van is going to look like this.
We’ll have a team of two or three guys and they’ll get to work on it. so my buddy alex, the singletrack sampler, researched and researched and did it it took him months and months and he had and johnny from the crafted workshop who and it still took him months and months and i was like, i can’t do it. and yes, i know you could do, do this dumpster dive everything for
$5 and just you know in a day too, but for me, this so this space or is cut into the corrugations with the cnc machine and fits into the rain forest of africa and not have to worry about a week. manufacturing area where they’re doing all it’s just being able to have one design and crank out a bunch of them and let’s we were trying to guess how many sheep were sheered to
Outfit my van. the worst part about buying a van straight these lights were $400 and i really thought we were just going to have to toss perfectly and now it’s like the best feature in the van. this is a wayfair ban the bed platform, which could be held up like this, so you there’s one on both sides, and then the best way to get down, it’s just going to we just updated
This, so it’s going to be hard to see like little candle back i’ll see you on the trail.
