43rd Van Nationals

Every year, in different parts of the country, hundreds come to the biggest vanning event. I personally went to this event expecting to find a regular show with a few cool things. I was completely wrong in every way. Upon arrival I was greeted by very nice people that immediately introduced themselves to me. They brought me into their club and when I told them it was my first vanning trip, they greeted me warmly. Vanner1 With promising thoughts, I moved on to see what this show had to offer.

It went beyond that as well. My van felt naked compared to the rest of them. Everyone has their van customized to their needs.
