Re: Van on a serious budget & a new member
Scour Ebay and amazon for deals on things. I was able to save a lot of money by doing a little shopping around.
Electrical is what I was way off on, cost quite a bit more than I budgeted, and that was making my own battery cables.
Other than that, prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. What do you want and what to need. My want list is still big, but I've been enjoying the van as is, and not sweating the "wants"
