Our Amazing Van SOLAR PANEL SYSTEM SET UP | Back to the Van Build

After a few months of exploring in our newly rennovated Mercedes Sprinter 170 4×4 its time to start working on a few more things for the van build! This week we are really focusing on installing our amazing van solalr panel system set up. Having solar panels on our campervan is really going to help keep our batteries charged while we aren’t driving.

We have a lengthy list of things to add and change on the van and we are excited to get started!

Who are Chris and Nicole?

We are a Canadian couple with a passion for exploring our beautiful country and beyond, meeting amazing people along the way and learning about different cultures, places and more while on our adventures. We have been travelling the world together for 8 years, have spent the last 3 years exploring Canada in our 25’ foot RV and now it is time to follow our dreams and convert a Mercedes Sprinter Van 4×4 to take us on our next adventure as a new Van Life Couple.

We are so excited to be able to share new places and adventures with you and hope that we are able to inspire you in anyway from following your dream of a van build to travelling to a new province or country. We love meeting other members of our incredible, ever growing community while we are on the road that are filled with like minded, kind hearted people. We hope to see you out there living your dreams!
