Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination

About Shane

Hi, I'm Shane โœŒ๏ธ

โ€‹

I started The Van Conversion with one goal in mind:
To help people live a simpler life on the road. I want people to get back into nature - where we belong.

โ€‹

A few years ago I left a corporate office job as an engineer and and started wandering through Europe with my self-build full-time.

โ€‹

An early mission was a memorable expedition from Spain to Svalbard (pretty much the North Pole).

โ€‹

For the past few years I've been perched in Chamonix, France, where I dwell part-time in the van, part-time in the mountains - climbing, skiing, and paragliding.

โ€‹

My van 'beans' truly has facilitated my best life.

โ€‹

Now, I want to help you get on the road -

so you can live your best life too! ๐Ÿš

I've been teaching people how to build campervans for several years; its my passion (and livelihood).

The Van Conversion Course, which launched in July 2020, quickly become the most popular DIY campervan course on the internet, with well over one thousand students.

โ€‹

Three years later, in July 2023, Roaming Home; The Comprehensive Guide for Converting Your Van Into a Campervan was launched. The coffee table book has been one of my biggest projects yet!โ€‹

The Van Conversion Newsletter has also amassed thousands of readers over the past couple years. Through it I send out all sorts of valuable information to help get people on the road.
