Sprinter van conversions

I’ve been thinking of traveling the US via van for several years now.  I thought it would be awesome to get one for my 40th bday.  Well, that’s almost 2 years from now.  Then, I thought it would be a great idea to pull the trigger and purchase a van when we have our little one.  Well, that time is quickly approaching as I’m in the 2nd trimester of the pregnancy.  So, like with everything else I do…. there’s a ton of research!

 

Which size to get?

 

Who to go with?

Awesome YouTuber for getting onboard with the van life: Hobo Ahle

Here’s what I’m leaning towards right now:

Sportsmobile seems to have an awesome option of the pop up top that could be an additional sleep area when we grow our family.  That’s really the huge reason why we’re leaning towards Sportsmobile.  We actually went to check out and do a factory tour of Outside Van and they were incredible!!  If I hadn’t have found out about the popup top on the Sportsmobile, OSV would’ve definitely been our top pick.

Land Rover LR 4

I’m obsessed with the body of the LR4.  It’s got a great look with great functionality — found that out by taking a test drive and really enjoying what it could offer through the dealer’s off road ramp and track.

The research:
