At Darien Overland, our goal is to provide helpful information about designing, planning, and building custom DIY Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit, Ram ProMaster, or other campervans (#skoolie).

If you’ve ever asked yourself:

  • “What kind of van should I buy?”
  • “How do I install______ ?”
  • “Which brand of ______ should I get?”
  • “How do I fix ______ van problem?”

Or if you have any other questions about designing, planning, or building… You’re in the right place.
