When Reddit user zachboth quit his pursuit behind in 2014, he knew he wanted to pursue his passion — filmmaking. Knowing full good that a life of a videographer is rather nomadic, he motionless that vital and operative out of a outpost sounded ideal.

But, friends, if we consider he only bought a tedious camper outpost and left it during that, we are sorely mistaken.

After purchasing a van, he gutted a whole thing. A small reduction than a year after he was left with a masterpiece that even those of us with friendly homes and apartments will be sceptical of…

Here’s what he had to work with…a 2003 Chevy outpost with some-more than 200,000 miles on it.
