All About Bunk Windows

Getting good sleep requires ventilation in the sleeping area of your van. Because most van beds run along or across the rear of campervans, windows installed in that section are called "bunk" windows. To stay cool and breathe at night, you definitely want good ones!

Campervan HQ Gear Update: Nova Kool Refrigerators

When you're building a camper van, you have lots of choices for recreational vehicle (RV) appliances, and one of the most important is the RV refrigerator. Most mass-market North American RVs still use the older 3-way (propane/AC/DC) absorption refrigerators, as most have propane tanks and spend lots of time plugged into shore power at RV parks and campgrounds. If your RV camping style doesn't involve being plugged in, you'll probably want a more efficient refrigerator, and that's where a vapor-compression (compressor) refrigerator excels. Compressor fridges typically use a third of the electrical power compared to the typical 3-way RV refrigerator running on battery power, and don't...
