Building A Van-House: Episode 11

In this episode I cover some of the considerations that you’ll need to take into account if you decide to install a fan in your van. I highly recommend this even if you are planning on being in a cold environment as you need something for ventilation when you cook. That being said, make sure you follow the directions that come with whatever fan you buy.

One of the most nerve wracking things you will do is cut a hole in the roof of your van for your fan. Once you get over the fact you are about to put a hole in your roof on purpose, you’ll need to measure it carefully with a template. I chose to tape it off with painters tape as well, but that’s up to you. Once you have the hole cut, it’s all gravy from there. Lastly, you can’t have too much caulking or silicon. You want this to be as water tight as possible because rain WILL find any weak points!
