FINALLY got the #HoboVan ARB 2500 8x8 awning installed. Took 4 hours and two trips to the hardware store as well as bucketloads of sweat and drilling. Had to custom fab the gutter mounts as welll, but project complete :-) #vanlife #vans #van #vanlifestyle #vanlifeexplorers #vanlifer #nomadlife #homeiswhereyouparkit #vanlifemovement #nomad #alwaysbewandering #neverstopexploring #hittheroad #getoutthere #HoboJoe #diy #customfab #customvan #conversionvan #ford #fordvan #outboundliving

Ok the sprinter van project is underway! This van was purchased by my client from the original owner who started a DIY Conversion and wasn’t able to finish so after cleaning the whole thing out we are starting from scratch! Flooring and electrical today then walls and cabinetry through the rest of this week! Really excited for the vision we casted for this project and can’t wait to see it come together! #handmade #carpentry #overlander #conversionvan #sprinter #mercedes

Picked up a new rod and some jigs at @funnsunboats in Hurst. They have an awesome selection of tackle and gear. It’s where I get all my equipment.

This is the second frog fish I’ve ever caught. I’ve been determined to learn this technique and I want to thank @guillermo_gonzalez_outdoors for giving me some great pointers.

Maybe it's not always about trying to fix something that's broken. Maybe it's about starting over and creating something that's better.

Van life has its ups and downs. Yesterday while doing a deep clean in the van I found mold under the floor boards. After taking out the cabinets and half the flooring. I'm now debating if I want to change the layout of the van. I enjoyed the original layout, but even before all this happened I knew I wanted to make some changes.

Here's to van 2.0

Wiring the power distribution panel:
The upper block is either car battery or aux battery, depending on a dashboard switch (not pictured): The panel includes 1) it’s own on/off switch, 2) a battery voltage indication, 3) two USB ports, and 4) a DC socket.
I used a 30 amp relay to drive power, to alleviate the chance of the 12v plug drawing a lot of current through the panel’s wimpy switch. The whole panel is on a 30 amp fuse, and I fused the switch separately at 5 amps — total overkill, but I’m low on smaller fuses.

On the lower right is a remote for a 1000 watt Pure Sine Wave Inverter, which is only connected to the aux battery, a 125 amp-hour, deep cell, sealed AGM battery.

The panel 1) turns the inverter on/off, 2) displays current voltage, 3) indicates the percent power being drawn, and 4) has a number of state indicators, relevant more for solar setups. It also looks really cool.

On the lower left are two 120 volt AC plugs. In other words, all my home electronics & appliances. It also has two more additional USB plugs.

Otherwise, we’ve got the rear 5” speaker. Also, I installed aftermarket, Mark III lamp fixtures (matching one on the other side). These provide that previously always missing light when you open the hatch.

after letting the #por15 dry, thin slabs of wood were cut to fit in between all the bumps in the factory floor so it would lay flat and even. Next some #pergo insulation board was laid down and taped by the wheel wells with #metaltape. And finally the flooooorrrrr!!!! 😱😍 get yourself a friend like @ptreesworkshop #vanlife #diy #campervan #camperconversion #conversionvanlife #conversionvan #vanbuild #homeiswhereyouparkit #floorisdone

had to get as much rust and yuck off the floor as we could and then slapped down some #POR15 to stop any further rust from invading. A couple spots of #jbweld and BAM she was ready for her floor!

Can't get enough of the beach life in Nova Scotia! There are so many beautiful stretches of sand here, with impossibly clear water. OK, it IS the Atlantic Ocean so the swimming is pretty bracing but it's the best way to cool down on a 30c+ day! A couple of times we've seen whales from the beach too, and how many people can say that they've swam with whales in the Atlantic?! .

What do you like most about summer? We love beaches, beers on the patio, sunshine and outdoor adventure! .

Successful roof fan install! 😎

It was a hot weekend with a lot of time spent on the roof and in the van but we now have a functional roof fan.
Decided to install the in a central location for both cooking and near the bed. And I also wanted to keep it near the front to use the rear roof rack for storage. The fan ended up conflicting with the middle roof rack bar by about an inch. Decided to live with it not closing all the way for now but might add a spacer to raise the fan to clear the roof rack in the future.

Installed the Maxxair fan using Hein's adapter. Used sikaflex, butyl tape and Flex seal to seal it. I'm confident there will not be any leaks.💦 Wired the fan temporarily into one of the dome lights and she works! ⚡⚡ #fordtransit #fordtransitcamper #fordtransitvan #vanlife #campervan #conversionvan #transit #transitorymigration #transitconversion #vanlifediaries #adventuremobile #vanlifeideas #vanbuild #projectvanlife #diyvan #maxxair
