Adventure VW Syncro Van

The #VanLife phenomenon is all the rage lately, a fascination with conversion vans built to take adventurers into the wild. While expensive, adventure vans offer a whole lot more than a regular RV, after all, you can convert anything with wheels into a tiny home—if you have the capital. Professional freeride mountainbiker Rob Heran has been a long-time vanlifer, he bought a T3 Syncro Van back in 2017 to start a long conversion process and create is dream adventuremobile. The engine has been replaced by a modern 120hp TDI, the interior rebuilt, all doors, roof and side panels were replaced, LED lights and new instruments were installed, two new batteries, new chargers and a mobile 100-watt solar panel were installed, and Recaro seats were fitted for comfort whilst traveling thousands of miles on and off the road. He also made a Heimplanet inflatable tent fit onto the roof rack, and built huge mobile ramp to attach to the van and jump his bike wherever he desires. watch the video below
