Jeff Kendall-Weed in his Promaster van

To the trailhead and beyond: my Promaster buildout

My 2015 Ram ProMaster 136” conversion van is more of a family camper van, built for mountain biking and camp trips, than the original moto van conversion I first showed on the channel. My daughter and I have recently done a couple of camp outs in the van, and for what’s also my daily driver, I’m REALLY happy with the rig! While it’s certainly a lot of vehicle to daily drive, it’s smaller than the ubiquitous full size pickup truck, and gets slightly better mileage. Considering how nice it is to have a fully enclosed cargo zone and also the ability to park in a standard, single sized parking space, it’s a great all around family set up.
