Zach Both made his own converted camper van in order to travel comfortably around the United States.

The young filmmaker, who purchased the van for an affordable price off the Internet from an electrician in Vermont, refurbished it with a full kitchen, an impressively large bed for the space, a theater and more. Even though Zach Both was working with such a confined area, he managed to make the interior of the vehicle look like an stylish apartment complex. This is done by covering up any metal with wood paneling, white curtains and chalk boards.

The converted camper van is incredibly resourceful as well, utilizing solar panels on the roof to generate electricity. Zach Both offers instructions on how anyone can make their own converted camper van on his website titled the 'Vanual.' Though his instructions are informative and easy to follow, Zach Both stresses that there is no right way to do it, leading his Vanual to allow for endless possibilities.
