Many friends, colleagues and several local business owners have supported us in preparing for our trips. To all who pitched in, a big “Thank You”, we could not have done it without you !


Bannister GM Kelowna: who sold us the truck and have agreed to supply us parts and mechanical guidance as needed should we require it in places where they are not readily available en route. Thanks for the peace of mind Brian Neary!

Johnny’s Auto: John Piatelli, our long-time mechanic who assisted with some truck mods and gave our vehicle a full mechanical inspection before departure

Altar Metal Fabrication: Tyson, thanks for the amazing aluminium metalwork that made the flooring and drawer system possible in our truck

Chris Woods/Jason Doucet: colleagues with all the right tools and a host of great ideas – Chris, the drawers, the hangers, and the power panel were all thanks to you!

Andy Paterson: Too many visits to Andy’s workshop to count – got the truck “floor” levelled, a counter redesigned, kitchen drawers sliding smoothly, and just seemed to recommend all the right bits and pieces to solve the seemingly most intractable problems!

Jeremy Porritt: some indispensable aluminium work just when we needed it



Altar Metal Fabrication: custom stainless steel shower pan, aluminum bed frame

DTP Custom Cars: Kevin did all the amazing cabinetry cuts with his CNC table giving our conversion a very professional look

Nirvana Outfitters: Thanks to Glen for the supply of, connection and advice on all things electrical that went into the van. That and many other pieces of random but indispensable advice !

Alcaro Plastics ( Kelowna ): supplied the van waste water tank and custom built our 40 gallon freshwater tank

Brad Chapman: Brad, your patience (and tips) with all the plumbing connections was indispensable 

Chris, Bob, Andy, Tyson (colleagues, neighbours and friends ) your help at times was invaluable and is much appreciated.


To any I have missed, thank you for making the truck camper and van projects possible
