In this episode of the 101, Bryan Rogala introduces us to his friends Ben and Sasha and their homebuilt Ram ProMaster van, named Zephyr. The two spent six months building out and customizing their home on wheels, with the goal of making life on the road as comfortable as possible. They included uncommon features like radiant heating, a recirculating shower, a convection oven, a composting toilet, and even a built-in litter box for their cat, Gracie Bell. They’re living proof that with some basic DIY skills and a lot of YouTube videos, anyone can build the adventure van of their dreams.
