Top Tips

Top tips are so useful when purchasing any kind of vehicle, and you are most definitely going to want to keep some of these in mind. 

The first and most vital top tip is to set aside a budget. If you do not have a budget then purchasing your day van and accessories can sometimes become very annoying, which is certainly something you will want to avoid. 

Another tip is to make sure you know exactly what you will be using the day van for and why. By doing this will allow you to: know how much the cost will be overall, what accessories that are beneficial to you personally, and also how much space will be available to you within the van. 

Our third top tip we highly recommend you do is research as much as possible. You should definitely focus on researching about the company that will be converting your van (unless you are completing this project yourself). Things such as reading reviews or checking out social media accounts is definitely something you may want to consider doing. 

Do your own homework!

Research is majorly beneficial when it comes to purchasing any form of vehicle or accessories. It helps minimise any mistakes that you may make or reduce any additional unwanted stress. By researching, you will know exactly what it is you want for your day van conversion and why. Not only will this make the process a lot quicker, but it will enable you to still continue with your daily life without having to worry about a thing! Here at Wildworx, we recommend you research as much as you can before purchasing anything to make sure that everything you are going to purchase will benefit you in some way and is worth the money. There are multiple different videos available on youtube, as well as other websites on google that you can access in order to get this information.

What is a day van?

A day van is a van that is normally used for short trips such as a day out surfing at the beach. They usually include things such as a small fridge, a bed, or even a bench. These items come in really handy when you want to stay overnight at your favorite fishing or hiking spot.  You definitely won't have the necessary amenities that are required to stay for a long period of time, but you will most certainly have enough space to bring large items or equipment such as fishing rods or walking sticks. 

Day vans can also be used as work vans due to the vast space it offers. This means that you are able to carry all your equipment to the work site and simply operate out of the back! No matter what you are using the day van for, it will always provide many benefits to you personally. 

What is the difference between a campervan and a day van?

A lot of people tend to get confused between what a day van is and what a campervan is. However, to help defeat this confusion we have made a list of the differences between the two types of vans. 

Campervans are typically used for trips over a long period of time, whereas a day van is usually used for a day out or as a work van. Of course you can stay overnight in a day van but it most definitely won't be useful for long trips away as it lacks the amenities to do so. 

Day vans also offer a large availability of space whereas campervans do not. This is definitely an obvious difference that you may have already known beforehand. But if you are worried about the availability of space, roof bars are always a great option!

Campervans are also certainly more expensive than day vans, whether they are used or brand new! They also can be very costly when it comes to repairing, which is something you may want to keep in mind (especially if you are on a tight budget). 

If you want to go on lots of long adventures with your friends or family then a campervan is definitely the right choice, but if you want a van for business or a day out then you should opt for a day van. 

What accessories can I add?

There are multiple different accessories that are available for you to add to your day van. Whether you want roof bars to carry extra luggage and to free up some space within the van or coilovers to give your day van that ‘slammed’ look, accessories will most definitely be advantageous no matter what it is you want!

Firstly, it is best to know exactly what you will be using your day van for. By doing this, it will allow you to pick out the perfect accessories you want. It will also help you be aware of what accessories will be advantageous, and which ones that won’t be.

One of our most popular accessory people like to purchase are roof bars. This is because they allow you to carry large items such as canoes or kayaks, which is extremely advantageous if you want to keep that large space that is already available in your day van for other objects. We strongly suggest that before you purchase roof bars for your day van that you know exactly what you will be carrying on them so you do not exceed the weight limit for that particular roof bar. If you do not do this, it could potentially cause some serious complications and potential damage to your van. 

Another popular accessory people like to add to their day van are coilovers. Coilovers are extremely advantageous when it comes to any type of van. This is because they allow you to adjust the height of your vehicle at any time, and also reduce body roll. However, it is important to keep in mind that even though coilover kits are reasonably priced, they are most certainly not cheap. There is always the option where you can choose lowering springs if you want a cheaper option when adjusting the height of your van, but these are not as advantageous as the coilover kits. 

Both roof bars and coilover kits come with cosmetic benefits by making your day van more visually appealing and personal to you! You can view all the Custom Van Accessories on our website.

What about safety?

Safety is always our number one priority here at Wildworx. Whether it’s a complete van conversion or simply just adding a few accessories to your van, our team of fully qualified professionals are more than happy to help assist you with whatever it is you want. When it comes to actually driving the van yourself, you should always check things such as all your lights and window wipers are working, all the mirrors are clean and safely secured  to your vehicle, and that all your seatbelts are fully functioning. 

What are the benefits of purchasing a day van?

Before buying a day van, you are most definitely going to want to know the benefits that they come with.  So in order to help you, we have created a list of a few of the benefits we think are awesome!

The first benefit that they provide is that they are usually cheaper to buy upfront compared to campervans.  This is definitely a great benefit for those of you who are on a tight budget. 

Secondly, when it comes to repairing, they are usually cheaper to fix. This is most certainly great news for those of you who like to save as much money as possible, or even those who are on a tight budget.

A third benefit day vans come with is that they are easier and more comfortable to drive as they do not weigh as much as campervans. This is definitely something that can be useful to some of those who have never driven a large vehicle before. 

Even though you might be limited on any long camping adventures, you will definitely find they are a lot cheaper to convert which is also something a lot of people prefer.

How much will a day van conversion cost me?

Cost is such a big thing when it comes to converting a van. However, there is no set price as everything is entirely up to you. 

We highly recommend that  before you come to the decision that you definitely want to purchase a day van, ask yourself “why do I want a day van?”, “what accessories should I add to my day van?” and “what will I be using the day van for?”. By asking yourself these questions, will help make life so much easier when it comes to purchasing a day van. 

There is always the option where you can rent the day van for your trip which is definitely cheaper and sometimes more useful if you don’t think you will be using a day van frequently.
