Conversion DIY vs Hiring a company, savings?
What would you guys say percentage wise is the general margin of savings
when you do everything yourself VS hire a conversion company to do everything for you?
2018 Promaster 2500 159 Extended Tall Roof, Fixed platform bed in the rear, fully functioning kitchen, cupboards,
storage, shower, toilet(composting or cassette), all season insulation, solar and water, a few windows, vents/fans, heater/aircon.
I know it all depends on how elaborate and luxurious the conversion is and quality of materials and components
used however I am wondering "in general" how much you save if you DIY vs Hire.
One thing to note is that I do not have any tools so I would need to purchase all the
tools required for DIY and I would also need to rent a workspace ($500-$1k a month) to do the work in for 3-6 months as I am
currently in an apartment rental without a garage or workspace. So those expenses also need to be considered via the DIY route.
Van is already owned so that expense does not need to be considered.
Thanks in advance
