Speedhut Custom Gauges

2 vuotta sitten

After Shane Jordan walked away from 80-100 hour workweeks and embraced the simpler "van life" he's never been happier. Watch him give us an in-depth tour of the Speedhut-equipped classic Vanagon he travels the world in.
Special thanks to Shane (@livethevanlife) for giving us a tour of the build. “When traveling the world in my van, I needed a set of gauges I could rely on. My Speedhuts have never let me down.” - Shane Jordan

I'm absolutely in love with your Van. I have been researching Van life for a while now. I do believe this is my future. I want to be able to see more of the country before I get my own house with a mortgage. Including the price of the Van how much did it cost for you to transform it to what it is now? And are you willing to do a build like this for other people?
Shane Jordan
Shane Jordan 5 kuukautta sitten
Hey Katherine, the cost of that Van was eye watering. I wont share it publicly but it was well north of 60k. The build also took me several years. Feel free to contact me via my blog www.livethevanlife.com and we can discuss a build.

I wonder when you get an accident where all the outside stuff will fly to. There is too much outside. The crumple zone of these old vans are your knees.

Is anyone wanting to play videogames while living van life? I always wanted to see how far VR headsets improve. That would be like a really cool life style. Mixed reality with passthrough using the Oculus Quest. Virtual Dekstop. Sound slike a nice mix of gaming and living van life.
