👩🏻‍💻 Kara’s Behind the Scenes Guide to Editing a Vlog:
🎥 Our current camera setup: karaandnate.com/travel-vlogging-gear/
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

  • Just a few thoughts from a couple who have been RV'ing for 20 years off and on (but don't live in it). We've never used our outside shower. Ever. We love a big table that seats 4, 5 in a pinch. Our grandaughter sleeps over the cab, so we take the table and make it into a bed. It takes about 90 seconds to lower the bed, put on the two back rest cushions and throw our double sleeping bag on it. Done. What we have done is sew up snap - in - sheets into our sleeping bags so it washes very easy. We've never even considered wrestling with regular bed sheets like at home as that would be a big pain. PS: I like the decor of your old van better too!

  • Very interesting comparison. Will you be upgrading some of the stuff on your van now that you've seen how the pros handle it? Some of this stuff doesn't seem too difficult to implement, like the outside water access, having all the control systems easily accessible or the bed that comes down. That seems to me to really be the stuff you need to have used the van for a while for to appreciate. Outside access to the toilet tank seems harder to do on yours, but not impossible. Your sink is far superior though, I've never understood why round sinks exist.

  • I hadn't watched any of your previous episodes . I'm hooked . My only quibble is that the comparison is between a older van vs a brand new one . How much would a new Sprinter start at ? Since I hadn't watched any of your previous videos I didn't realize your van though in good shape and well done , is an amateur reno . Still very interesting and well done comparison .

  • The main issue I have with a "real" RV conversion van is that it doesn't feel like a home. No matter where you look, where you feel, what you use, it all feels like just cheap RV material. Where I would rather have a van (like yours) because it looks and feels like someone put a small home in a van with with the more standard style appliances and such.

  • There is alot of those little things that I can over look between the 2 for a $100k savings. If you have a towing package in your fan couldn't you tow a little camper that does have conveniences like a/c and extra place for friend or two. Nobody ever mentions doing that. What y'all think about doing that?

  • A drill and a jig saw with metal and wood blades will save $100,000. Being creative gives you the satisfaction of having your van being created with your specific likes and needs met and will be more reliable and durable as well. ( hire help if you need to or pay to have it done , but your input on how the build is designed and done will be crucial to you enjoying what you have.)

  • I'm in the market to buy a van I love the Revel the one reasons why I will not buy it is the price for what you get it just too small if it was the size of your van I would have one. Your van is a keeper throw maybe another 10-15 thousand in it and you'll have the king of campers. You are van is beautiful.

    • @KorneliaTV don’t get a big sprinter or transit, buy an older van that still runs well, sacrifice the head room and come to terms with having to stand on your knees when you’re in the van, don’t expect anything fancy like a composting toilet or shower, use as many salvaged materials as possible

  • Honestly I think a lot of the points for the expensive one come from the fact that it was engineered by professionals while you built yours yourselves with a rough idea of what you'd need (in terms of space and storage). Now you actually know exactly what you need and want... so I think if you could totally build your perfect van for a fraction of the cost. $150.000 for a car is just outrageous in my opinion.

  • The "sink drain pump" sounds like a tank climbing up a hill and the vertical pantry is no a slide out. For 150k is no good for they could surely find a less noisy pump and have done a tour in the neares IKEA store to find a slide out pantry. I don't argue the overall quality but honestly i saw much better at a fraction of the cost in DIY conversion - or lower budget as well. Just my two cents...
