Magpie FAQ

So many questions arise when planning a van conversion. First and most often, what type of van? What will you use it for?

It’s different for everyone, but here are a few of our early choices/answers to van life questions.

Why did you decide on a Promaster?

Many reasons, but the 3 biggest are: wide body (bed fits side-to-side), great handling and gas mileage, we like the look of this van the best.

Do you plan on living in this van full time?

No, not at this point or the foreseeable future. But we DO plan on traveling often, both for short overnight/weekend trips and longer (days, weeks) trips.

How did you come up with the name Margrit?

It is better than ‘the beast’ or ‘the van.’ It is nice to have a nice nickname and personality for this project.

Why Magpies?

We love birds. Especially the crafty curiosity of magpies. Curiosity about creating a custom camper van is what started us on this journey. Read more about our magpie inspirations on our about us page.
