What I like about VW vans: The utilitarian aspect of them. It can be a home on wheels- cozy and comfortable- but can also be a work truck or moving van with almost no modifications necessary.

How I got interested in them:I got the fever for them back in Vermont, but was having trouble finding a Bus in my price range that didn't need an insane amount of body work. I was also getting pretty tired of the winters so I moved to California!

Best trips and favorite places:My best trip was the Lost Coast. Hanging out with the elk and watching epic sunsets. Anywhere with a swimming hole is my favorite place!

Favorite upgrades: The high roof- which led right to my next favorite, the T3 Technique heavy duty sway bar and end links.

Tricks and tips: The included beer opener in the front door catch.

What brought me to Buslab: As mentioned previously I was getting over the harsh East Coast winters so I moved out to California. My friend Matt was working in the parts department and I was having bad luck landing a job in the bartending world. I expressed interest and a week later I was parting out vans 9-5!
