For many, buying a recreational vehicle (RV) is simply not an option, and renting one for a short road trip can be just as expensive. Thankfully, Vanlife fans will be happy to know that there is a more affordable solution out there.
Have you heard of conversion kits, like those offered by RoadLoft? They allow you to transform your own caravan-type vehicle into a perfect living space for when you travel across Canada.
Don’t have a minivan? The conversion kit requires no permanent changes. You can therefore use it on a rental vehicle without fear of damaging it – a solution that is much more affordable than renting an RV!
Comfortable and functional
These conversion kits offer a variety of amenities similar to those found in an RV. Think a kitchen area with a drawer that, when open, becomes a small counter, as well as a retractable sink and built-in cutting board.
There is also a second drawer, which converts into a support for the two-burner stove. Plus, there’s enough space under both drawers to store food. Convenient!
The kit also comes with an extra-long bed that turns into a bench and table during the day. The sectional mattress is made of top-quality, high-density foam for optimal support.
Finally, you’ll find plenty of storage so you can make the most of your road trip: the conversion kit comes with two drawers for clothes, a bookcase, a large central storage, and even space for a large cooler. The entire design was thought out so as to minimize handling, and the storage is always accessible via two different ways.
The RoadLoft kit comes assembled; you just need to set it up in your vehicle. Unbelievable but true, this can be done in all of five minutes!
Campers can save even more time by renting a campground. This allows them to enjoy their getaway as soon as they arrive, without having to pitch a tent. Taking off spontaneously without any preparation seems a lot less daunting now!
More money in your pocket
A conversion kit is an economical solution, especially when compared to buying or renting an RV, or even a camper. You even get to avoid all costs associated with these vehicles, such as insurance, registration, and the high gas prices to fill them up.
In fact, the cost of buying a conversion kit is equivalent to about two weeks’ worth of RV rental. Plus, given their sturdy design and resistance to humidity and road vibrations, these kits last long – they can be used for several years. The wood is marine-approved and sustainably sourced. Plus, it’s protected from shocks and drops thanks to two coats of eco-friendly varnish. That’s great bang for your buck!
Endless travel possibilities
With your conversion kit, you can easily hit the road for a getaway whenever and wherever.
Also, given its smaller size, your converted van offers you more campground options and provides you with free accommodations in boondocking mode.
The return back home is also easy as can be: simply remove the conversion kit and put it away. The kit’s different parts are stackable for easy storage. Your vehicle will be back to its regular everyday format in no time at all!
The two masterminds behind RoadLoft are Vanlife enthusiasts. Thanks to their experiences – they travelled for three years by minivan before coming up with the idea for RoadLoft – and their association with an industrial designer, they created a convenient, safe, comfortable, and affordable conversion kit. In fact, before marketing their kit, all parts were tested and optimized with the help of several prototypes.You too can be living the Vanlife now!
