How to start a Winter Van Build – Winter Van build Part 1
Having spent years watching the #vanlife movement explode in all sorts of directions, we decided that if we were to get the van we wanted, we were going to have to build it ourselves.
WINTER VAN BUILD PART 1: NOT JUST ANY VAN BUILD
If you’re genuinely looking for some winter van build inspiration, search ‘winter van build’ on YouTube or Google and you’re probably going to be a bit disappointed. It felt like summer 2017 all over again when we discovered that Google had a black spot in the motorhome skiing department. There’s a generous amount of ‘living in a van in winter’ stuff and the odd credible winter van conversion video but certainly nothing that James or I found particularly helpful or inspiring. The aim of this Winterized Winter Van Build series is to walk you through your own winter van build, warts and all, showing you where you can scrimp, save and splash, dependent on your budget, skills and time. We’ve researched our conversion to death, and James has even donated his beloved VW T5 plumber’s-mate as the test-bed for things that have the potential to go horribly wrong. This is us, as complete newbies, screwing things up, just for you. We’re good like that! If you’re up for building your own snow-mobile and you fancy the freedom of mountain hopping, you can find the blog sign up at the bottom of this page and more details about how to follow […]
MOTORHOME WIFI VS THE WINTER
Search Google – you’ll find a lot of reviews and user guides to various motorhome wifi products and solutions to getting internet reception on the road.

We’re Hannah and James – and in 2017 we thought we invented motorhome skiing. Little did we know that there was a world of snowmads out there and we were late to the party!
As complete beginners to winter camping we struggled to find up to date information help us find places to stay and teach us all the things we needed to know to make a success of a motorhome skiing trip so we decided to start collecting that information. Winterised.com which is now the biggest motorhome skiing and boarding resource and is growing rapidly.
