                          Is it hard having a dog in the van? When you leave and it's hot outside doesn't it get too hot for the dog inside?

                            Good to see you back on the road Anna. In hindsight, you could have went with the mid or high roof version of the Transit. But I guess you have to work with what you have.

                              Yes, I sometimes wish I had gone with a high roof originally. But it is much more expensive, then even adding the high top to a low roof van.

                                Sorry you felt that way. I share the products I use, to help others looking to build a van and searching for the best appliances/products.

                                i like the natural wood. i don’t like it when people paint it white or cover it in paint and ruin the naturalness of it.

                                          Hi, Am very inspired by you and am taking notes of many ideas you have. Plan to do something similar my self in the near future. I do have one question so far:- Did you take Casper3 internationally or how did you do the international tours? mentioned touring Australia for a year and a half, for instance. ....If so, how did you get the van over from the US? And how expensive was it?

It could probably get a better signal as well just from all the YouTube videos I have watched and I’ve watched plenty but as far as the best van layout ever any van build I’ve ever seen hands-down Trent and Ally on YouTube.
