Brand new to the forum
Hey there! New to this forum, my name is Josh and I wanted to introduce myself. At this point in time I do not have a van, but I'm nearly ready to pull the trigger on a Chevy Express 2500 passenger van...yeah, I said passenger. My van is going to be my daily driver/kid hauler/utility trailer tower/mobile office/camping base station/and family road tripper. I'm totally fine with a cargo van, but I was thinking I better get some windows for my kids to look out of or road trips are going to be kind of rough. I've been lurking for a bit checking out build threads, pics, and had the good fortune of meeting Accrete and his wife this past Monday at a local campground. They were so kind to show me their van mods and campsite including the most wicked camp hammock setup I've ever seen!
I'm going to use my van differently than most at this point in my life as I have 4 kids and a wife and there is no way I'm going to be able to sleep everyone inside. There may be the occasional time where the wife and I can get away alone, but that would be the exception and not the norm. When we do get that opportunity we will sleep in the van, and when the kids are with us we will sleep in a Springbar canvas tent.
