The Wolf Van; aka Smoky Summer Stories from Scott and Shane

Holy Smokes!! (Quite literally) 

Our summer has been hectic, its been rewarding, it has been highly encouraging, and its been a little smoky

We would like to start by saying thank you to all of those who have rented or will be renting from us in our first season. It is a dream come true to have people interested in the vehicles that we have worked so hard on! It is also amazing to have campers who have taken care of these vans like they were their own. We feel really lucky to have met such fantastic people. Now.. what have we been up to since the infamous Weather Blog Posts?

About mid-May we decided that one van was not enough to keep us busy and promptly purchased and set about converting a second Chevrolet Express. The very Chevy Express you see below!

We rescued this van shortly before it was slotted to enter back into the workforce as a welder's transport. It was much happier being converted into a leisure vehicle. Can you tell?

I'll spare you all of the minor details of the conversion. More or less it turned out exactly how we wanted it to, which was exactly like The Bear Van. However, we were able to make a few improvements on the build. Here's a couple photos from the process!

Who doesn't like hemlock tongue and groove, LED pot-lights, and LED strips for the ideal glamping atmosphere.

So with the van build complete we got to our favourite part of the process, picking a design for the outside of the van. It was decided that The Bear Van would remain the one and only Bear Van, so naturally we went with another Vancouver Island local. We humbly present... THE WOLF VAN!

Or maybe it's the Abby Van..?

We've got lots to look forward to in the off-season! We'll do our best to keep you updated. More vans are coming your way!
