I love/actually hate when people say just do it, you can do anything! Not everyone can build a cool campervan that actually looks nice and is safe. Ask me how I know. I'm not skilled in that arena and I recognize that and am ok with that. I can do certain things better than others and others can do certain things better than me. Period. I tried building a camper van a few years ago and failed pretty hard. It wasted money and time and didn't feel good in the end. I'm way happier paying someone to do something that I value and I know I can't do. Period. Major props to all of you who are skilled craftspeople with the proper tools, equipment, training, patience, money and time to build a rad camper van. I'm not one of those people. I do think that I can build a simple cabinet or two out of 80/20 and bolt it in to existing 80/20. That is about the extent of the build that I'm willing to take on.
I talked with VanDoit early this year, decided against it.
Once you get further into specifications you may find their system works for you or it may not. They are strongly oriented toward building a toyhauler. If that's you, it might work.
As an example, they are building the electrical options around their entertainment "box". Even if you really don't want a bigscreen tv with a dvd, you may still have to specify that "box" just to have their electrical controls panel. They were talking about modifying that dependence months ago, but the website doesn't show it.
Their quotes are based on the most common used 3.7L Passenger wagon. Any desire for a different base van will drive the price up quickly.
