Campervan Building: Step 1 - Buy a Van

You would think that finding a proper van to convert would be easy. Those Chevy and GMC cargo vans are everywhere! Sadly, this is not the case. Not in the slightest. And the Canadian Dollar is to blame.


Good question. Currently, Americans are buying up all of the Canadian cargo vans at the ridiculous discount of 20%. That discount has made good quality, low milage, fairly priced cargo vans scarce in Canada. Perhaps a slight oversight in our business plan.. but jeez. How can you predict everything??

After a few hard no's, a couple maybe vans, and some frantic searching, we found something we could work with! 

Presenting, our very own 2008 Chevy Express, and the future backbone of GoCampers. It even came with ladder racks!
