A couple years ago, I decided to get a motor home. But because I didn't have a lot of money to spend, I figured what the heck. I'll pick up a van or RV that needs a little help, and fix it up as a new project. Now bear in mind, I have some skills, but am in no way a trained wood worker, mechanic or body man. Just a do it yourself-er who was looking for another project. And because I am working within an extremely limited budget, some items and building materials were purchased new, but many of the parts I salvaged from other campers or RVs, or purchased used on line or from classified ads. And lets face it... in this day and age... recycling or reusing is always good.

I was originally just looking for a van to customize, or camperize. But when I came across this unit, which is somewhere in between a camper van and a motor home, I knew I had found my project.

Anyway, this is the story of my GMC Vandura 35.
