After an incredible 3 years of living, working, and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we made the very tough decision to abandon our tiny home in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for all of us this global pandemic has flipped our world upside down. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. Halting our dream of driving around the world was a hard pill to swallow which is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto. Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a campervan and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID VAN 🚐

    Great job on the videos! Really nice to have some info from people in Canada building a van at the moment. Couple questions for you: 1 - What kind of sealant did you use on the bunk windows? 2 - Do you guys have Amazon Canada affiliates links? If so that'd be great, cause there's a couple of things you put links up that I'd like to get, but they don't ship to Canada! Thanks and keep up the good work!

    I think you could call the van “MayPole”. Your building in May. May Pole is like a traditional dance to celebrate spring (?) and....it sounds like “Maple” so you have the Canadian connection!

A reason to get out of bed. A goal! Cheers! - - - I hope the business will carry you through with its mail order sales. I have "done" chai for decades and am always on the look-out for new and different lines, so in doing my part to support y'all, I just ordered the starter kit for they decaf and added a canister of the regular - why not, eh? Hey, why stop there - bought the sprinkles and added the real cinnamon since the little shop from which I get mine is COVID-closed. You GO Gang!

    Have had so many of these garbage CRL windows leak. DO NOT RECCOMEND! Go with AM Auto for a much nicer window or Tern Overland. The CRL was literally pouring water inside the van and not from the cutout, from the garbage seal on the glass.
