Van Talks – Episode 2: How to Choose Your Rig

In this episode we discuss “How To Choose Your Rig?” Our guests for this episode were Jake Bachowski of Our Van Quest and Josh Stallings of Master Overland. The discussion turned out super entertaining and informative and we had many different perspectives from “OG” vanlifers and professional van builders. Some of the topics we discussed were how we all decided on the rigs we started with, what type of rig is suitable for each budget, what are the differences between the major brands/chassis and much much more.
