Do It Yourself RV: Backroads Vanner celebrates life on the back roads

From the bloggers at Do It Yourself RV.

Mike and Shannan of the blog, Backroads Vanner, not only explore the backroads of America with their two dogs, but they also celebrate our nation’s treasured National Parks with their beautiful photography…all from inside a cargo van turned camper van.

The couple decided to simplify their lives, downsize and turn Mike’s work vehicle, a 2003 Chevy Cargo Van, into their home on the road. Known as “The Practical Vanner” because of his useful and practical applications for the van, Mike now has everything from a custom canopy system to a mobile office, all within a tidy package that can still maneuver mountain roads.

Mike first removed all the cargo van’s shelves and lined the walls with sheets of rigid foam insulation and Reflectix insulating wrap. He then covered the walls with 4×8 sheets of luan, soft foam and then vinyl. You can see how he did this in a video on their YouTube channel. Mike also shares tips on how to DIY your own van walls.
