About Odyssey Camper

I’m seeing North America in my Honda Odyssey camper conversion and you can do the same in YOUR minivan!

Think you can’t afford to travel full-time?  Minivan conversions are far more economical than a traditional RV and can park anywhere.  Don’t wait until “someday” to travel.  I’ll show you how to do it now!

I started this site to show my kids that they don’t need to spend a lot of money to go out and hike around the National Parks of the US and Canada.  If you want to learn more about my decision to use a minivan as my RV, you can read about that and my personal journey in THIS POST.

Every do-it-yourself article or video is designed to be performed with a minimum of special tools or skill.  Everything you read here will pay special attention to REDUCING THE COST OF TRAVEL.  I’ll try to get you on the road sooner than you thought possible.
