Climbingvan 2020/21 Van Conversion Survey
To build up a reliable source of data for our book, The Van Conversion Bible, we conducted a survey of the van conversion community. The survey asked a set of questions based on whether someone had already converted a van, or was planning to convert a van in the future, and this allowed us to separate them into two buckets: ‘van owners’ and ‘aspirational van owners’.
We asked van owners a series of questions about build cost and time, the size, make and model of the van they converted, and how people found the conversion process. We asked aspirational van owners about their current skills, as well as their concerns and their budget.
We collected data from over 1,200 people and used this data and the insights gained from the survey throughout our book. The data was collected from 12th May – 31st December 2020, and the breakdown of respondents was:
- How long does it take to convert a campervan? – coming soon
- What jobs to self-build van converters outsource to professionals? – coming soon
- What do self-build van converters use their campervans for? – coming soon
- Are self-build van converters actually happy with their campervans? – coming soon
