If you have a dream to restore a classic vehicle or a desire to convert one before setting off for vanlife, we hope to help. In short, remember this: First, you do not have to be a mechanic or carpenter to accomplish this goal; and second, there is no one way to overhaul a vehicle. In fact, what you need most is a massive dose of determination and passion!

Knowing this, we share all information on our efforts to refurbish, modernize, and customize our 1965 Clark Cortez motorhome. While we are just getting started, our guides below off details on what we have done and where we will go. Know all will be consistently updated so stop back in for the latest and follow our blog so you will not miss a job!
