Starting your DIY van conversion opens the door to a world of possibilities, allowing you to transform a simple vehicle into a personalized and functional living space. Whether you're gearing up for weekend adventures or planning to hit the road full-time, certain items and modifications can elevate your van life experience. In this blog post, we'll explore the top 10 must-haves for a successful DIY van conversion.
1. Flares/Trim Rings
Flares and Trim Rings help transform your van into a spacious and functional area. Flares give you the freedom of turning your bed sideways, instantly expanding your living space, and optimizing the interior layout of your van. With Flarespace's tailored solutions for specific van models, you can seamlessly integrate these flares to create added square footage for other necessary items. Flarespace Trim Rings elevate the interior aesthetics and functionality of your van, designed for a seamless fit with Flares. These Trim Rings not only provide a polished finish to your van's interiors but also create a sleek windowsill around the Flares, bridging the gap between the van's inner wall and the Flares. Crafted from durable molded fiberglass, these Trim Rings effortlessly attach to the backside of your van's wall panels, ensuring a snug and secure fit. What sets Flarespace's Trim Rings apart is their compatibility with other Flarespace products, allowing you to create a cohesive and stylish interior design. For those seeking modern conveniences, the Trim Rings offer optional upgrades like two USB 3.0 charging ports and two overhead reading lights – saving your wall space for other things like storage or decor.

You want something reliable when traveling through the amazing backroads of places like Baja, Moab, or the Trans America Trail. Flarespace's Wheels and Tires are a great addition to any DIY van conversion, delivering the perfect fusion of style, performance, and convenience.
