For the past two years, I have explored the far reaches of the Western states in my custom camper van that me and my friends built from the ground up. With each new adventure, I uncover new ideas to implement and further improve our build, and today we are focused on increasing work productivity!
🙌MASSIVE thanks to MY PATRONS that make the production of these videos possible 🙌

Last year when I was back on the east coast, we embarked on a massive renovation that would increase the overall livability of the van, and I have absolutely LOVED having these upgrades throughout last year.
Now, I’m back on the east coast again, and I’ve been hanging out working with my buddy Seth. He’s recently converted his three car garage into a massive productivity workspace complete with bike mechanic corner, woodworking area, video production studio, and even a lounge area and break room! Let me tell you, this place is DIALED, and working here over the past couple months has gotten me thinking about how I can improve my workspace and productivity in in the van.

This guy acts like everyone can do this. Not everyone has that kinda money buddy. And if they did they wouldn’t be wasting it on a van. Time to grow up.

I get the feeling Alex would rather stay with Seth than live in his van. So my only question is do you not want vanlife anymore?

You could probably use both your laptop screen and monitor by lifting the monitor slightly.
Hildebert 13 days ago
Hmm, I love this idea but i am searching for a methode where you can hide the screen. I am too scared for theft. Like you could slide it into a slot next to the wall and lock it up somehow. Such screens are expensive.

One thing that comes to my mind seeing your van : do you ever think about the weight and the maximum capacities of your van and its chassis ? Have you ever weighed it ?

Making me feel bad for having 3 27" screens and still wanting another bigger screen above them all. I mean totally different uses and what not, but still.

Alex, I know you’re done with your van build already, but I was watching seth’s video gifts for mountain bikers and I thought that would be so cool if you had a kind of retractable bike stand that comes out of the side of your van. It sounds kinda stupid, but just a thought. Thanks for all the great vids!

(Van)Dora? I love it :) I wonder how many people will recognize the reference. I expect you have noticed already... the RV world has had straps to keep the TVs in place while on the road for YEARS... probably well worth considering for mounting a computer monitor like that if you have not already found some other solution a simple piece of velcro across the display when it is against the wall would do the job.

hey Alex, cool setup, cool new helmet too! (I'm thinking of getting a proframe today...). If you ever want to drive up North later this summer (once the border finally re-opens...) give me a shout. I could bring you to DH World Cup tracks at Mont Ste-Anne - Québec. We've got place and and hookup for your camper and even a nice and cold basement. You can do it!!! hehehe Cheers edit: sent from my phone on a 2017 Scott Genius front wheel stoppie ;p
