Hi Jason.  Recent book buyer here.  Not sure if this is where to get the updates, would like to see your new van.

Hi Jason.
It looks like you're having fun exploring. 
I've been looking at a lot of van videos including yours.  It seems people spend an awful lot of money on their van builds.  It's a discouragement to me people spending fifteen grand on a van build out.  That's why I'm really interested in what you have to say.

We spent less than $2,000 on original Vanabode build out and it's explained in the book. Our latest Vanabode build out is 2 week at a time completely off-grid capable and cost about $9,500 but I paid $6500 of that for a company to install parts and labor all my electrical systems. You can get by comfortably on a smart build from $1,800 and up. As explained in the book BOTH of us traveled together comfortably for 170,000 miles over 11 years in a $2,000 buildout including house grade queen sized bed mattress.

So far on this Covid Tour we have traveled over 5500 miles and camped nearly 8 weeks and paid to camp only 5 days. This is how we will recoup all our buildout costs in about a year.

Sounds good.  Thanks for answering. So did you insulate the van this time, and panel it?

Insulation is sprayed foam and panels of foam behind most all wood panels, Otherwise bare metal as always. A compromise that has so far been fantastic.

Hi Jason.
There's a lot going on over this Covid19 lockdown.  Do you want to talk about what your observations are, this is probably not the place but thought I'd ask anyway.

Hi Jason.  Is there a link to the store from the book somewhere on this forum, so as to not have to toggle through the book looking for it?
