Having a vehicle you can live out of is usually a luxury that is only had by people who can afford an RV or a fifth wheel. There really has never been an option for young adults, something that is relatively inexpensive, but also functional enough to be able to actually live in for a decent amount of time. Because of the lack of options, many young adults have taken to creating their own adventure vehicles. Vehicles that are perfect for weekend camping trips, or even long road trips. This young man shared his build for his adventuremobile on imgur, and I immediately fell in love with it. It has everything you would ever need. Check out how he did it below.
He started out with a 2006 Ford cargo van he purchased on Craigslist. You can find these things for sale almost everywhere.
The floors were rusted out, but all they needed was a little TLC.
First he had to pull up the floor mats.
An angle grinder took care of the rust on the floor without a problem.
He laid down a coat of primer.
Painting came next.
They used liquid nails to secure down runners. They will support the flooring when it is laid down.
Insulation is key when trying to make a vehicle livable. Even with the walls, they can get pretty darn cold at night.
They used OSB plywood to make the floor. Because the van was used for work, the floor was dented. This caused the floor to bend when walked on. So he decided to drill some holes in the OSB and use canned foam to fill in the uneven parts, which took care of the bend.
He used foam insulation to fill the cavities in the body of the van.
