I recently finished my DIY van build and started thinking about how I best learned about all the intricacies of van building. This forum was a massive resource as well as the vanual and sprinter rv conversion sourcebook. However, after a long day of building the last thing I could/wanted to do was read dense instructions or flip through millions of forum posts so I typically turned to YouTube. As you all know there is a tremendous amount of info already on YouTube some of which is EXCELLENT but other information that seemed questionable at best and made me nervous about trusting the advice. Sometimes it was hard to discern who was right and/or wrong and it led to lots of mistakes on my end.
Which got me thinking, could I put my years of video editing, shooting, and directing experience to use all while helping those individuals who prefer to learn through a video format?
My question then, and would love your feedback on, is would you all see any value from a Masterclass-type program on DIY vanbuilding? I’m thinking of interviewing experts and demonstrating the main pain points that a DIY vanbuilder has as they proceed through their own build. Experts could be folks that have built countless vans, electricians, solar experts, tiny home builders, interior designers, etc. who would educate the viewer on each specialty topic that will hopefully answer any and all questions that a DIY vanbuilder would have. I also would love to harness some of the experts in this community and put together an amazing video lesson package for any and all new vanbuilders.
What are your thoughts? Good or bad idea? Or…should I just shut up and get back to work…haha
P.S. Here’s a photo from my recent build:
