Hello from Minnesota!

Hi! I am brand new here and have just started down the rabbit hole of van life. I’ve been reading for days. I don’t have much in the way of skills to build out a van but I’m going to try. I have friends with skills and tools! My girlfriend and I are looking for a van now, Ram Promaster 2500 with a high roof. This first year we will do the bare minimum for comfort and do the build out next year. Plenty of time for ideas!
