Want to get into #vanlife but don’t have $150,000 sitting around? Check out the super usable and mega clean build out Chris over at Broken and Coastal did with with his Toyota Sienna van. We drove down to Bend Oregon and he pick up a clean example for a good price to get started. We immediately drove it up a cinder cone to a sweet outlook and camp spot. From that moment on he was hooked! After that Chris got some help with a nice platform floor that served as a base to mount a slide out refrigerator and battery pack systems. Our other friend Matt helped with a 3 inch suspension lift and meaty KO2 tires. The van serves as a daily hauler and weekend getaway machine.
Chris has the Lolo 4 bike rack and the Boss swing out attachment. This gives him a solid bike carrying solution for the Sienna minivan while keeping the back hatch door easily accessible.
Broken and Coastal is a non-profit magazine that focuses on bike culture around the world.
