Hey, I'm Zach from Vanlife Outfitters. Zach has been a camper van enthusiast with a healthy dose of wanderlust ever since he started making “houses on wheels” with his Legos as a child in the early 1980’s. He bought his first actual camper van in 1994 – a cherry red 1971 VW Westfalia that, against any sort of reason or consideration of law enforcement suspicion, had a mural of a large fish and the Mad Hatter tea party. He and his girlfriend lived in that van and traveled across the United States a few times at the top speed of 55 MPH catching some of the last Grateful Dead concerts ever played. Since then he’s traveled extensively in two other VW campers and the three DIY Promaster camper vans. Zach splits his time between Sarasota, Florida and adventuring in his van.
