The Vanual – DIY Cargo Van Conversion

I’m pretty sure when Chris Farley’s character in the infamous Mick Foley SNL skit said he was “living in a van down by the river,” this tricked out recreational masterpiece isn’t exactly what he was referring to. Meet the Vanual: a cargo van converted into a mobile home built by filmmaker Zach Both after he acquired the vehicle off Craigslist. Yes, all the things in that last sentence happened. And all of them are awesome! Continue reading

Comfortable from every angle and vantage point. Continue reading


HC1 Travel Trailer

It is my dream to one day take my family on a long trailer trip and when I saw the HC1 Travel Trailer I got all excited again.

Another outstanding feature of the HC1 is that its internal configuration is modular- you can take out the interior if you want to use it as a hauler (to carry a kayak or motorcycle) or pack it full of features- a bed the size of your choice, a kitchenette, toilet, storage etc. Continue reading
