  • Are you sure you want to have your kitchen or any fluids above your electrical? That seems risky. Best of luck with your new build and adventures.

  • Loving the van build series! Would you be so kind as to post links to those cordless tools you’ve been using? They appear to be somewhat compact compared to what I’ve seen guys in garage-type home shops use! I’m certainly NOT a carpenter or hard core woodworker, so I don’t necessarily need “professional” grade kit. But I DO enjoy using the right quality tool for whatever project I’m trying to do- and those tools look extremely competent, and also manageable for my small hands. Thanks for sharing your extraordinary skills and wonderful adventures with us!! 💐💐💐

  • I guess you have to appease your paying crock pot cult subscribers, but with your new power supply, I'd dump it and go for a vintage pyrex bowl with lid and a microwave. I did that years ago and have never missed that old crude pot. No appeal. Make a double reflectix cozie for the bowl and lid and save even more on electricity while your food cooks away slowly without any electricity.

  • Hi from Newfoundland , Foresty... Great idea, the Wood stove.... check out the Dwarf mini wood stove... seems better than the Cubic Mini according to the SEworld videos i watched... built in ash pan ... burns longer over night ... many pluses.... several vans on SEworld , similar to yours, have a wood stove .... dry heat , free fuel, save battery power -win-win-win.... who knows, they may donate one to you !!

  • Great videos as always. Unfortunately you guys have a very limited choice of Diesel Vans compared to Europe. Most can get an auxiliary Diesel Heater mounted in the engine compartment from the factory which uses the cars existing heat ducts and vents. That would eliminate the need for extra space in the cab and extra Diesel tank.

  • Foresty, when you're hiking so much as you are, always alone and very often in a bear habitat, I strongly advice you to have your bear spray on a belt around your waist, and NOT in the backpack. Chances are that if you encounter a bear in close proximity, it will be a surprise for both you and the bear, and you probably won't have much time to take the spray out of the backpack. Furthermore, you may become separated from the backpack, which will leave you defenseless. So unless you're in big open spaces, the spray should always be instantly accessible. I hope you are well-informed of what you should/should not do in case of different scenarios of bear encounters. Stay safe and keep it up! Nice progress!

  • Definitely need a fully automatic baby wipe dispenser. Also yes do the woodstove. They make amazing small but awesome ones now. May I suggest you seriously consider a nice flat panel tv mounted on a swing-out metal arm. Or just mount it above the kitchen area. Gonna send you a nice new lead-free chemical-free crockpot as a house warming gift.

  • A wood stove would be an easy way for some good cheap heat. But it would take space in the van. As well as take away from your stealth because you’d have a chimney coming out of the top of your van. Depends what you want more. Cheap heat or more space and stealthiness.

  • really cool dude, been wanting to build a 5ton dry van into affordable mobile living to afford racing rally car forever. a tought on the wood stove is save it till you insulate the roof, build a roof top fireplace (outside of course) so you can have a vent and fan to draw in smell and heat as well as open the doors in the woods and let the ashes buck on the drive out. Keep up the good work inspiring stuff

    snidewhipssnidewhips9 dagar sedan
  • Just a thought and I may be totally wrong. A wood stove on the inside of your vehicle that has liquid gas in it? If there are fumes inside your van from the diesel fuel or from the underside of your van from the exhaust, into your van if there are and undetected leaks. Gas fumes are more lethal for inflammability.
