Van Slam 2017!

Thank you to everyone who came out for our Third Annual Van Slam!

This year’s event was our biggest yet and included live music by Ukes of Hazard, a Yukon Brewing beer garden and freshly-roasted Firebean Coffee.

As part of the Ford Drive 4 UR Community program, Whitehorse Motors made a donation to the YuKonstruct Makerspace Society for every Ford test drive at the event. With your help we were able to raise $1,800!

Janna found her “dream home” camper for free!

Van Slam 2015

Part expo for vagabonds, part car camping showcase, the Van Slam on September 20 was a great success! 43 people attended the Van Slam to tour 6 modified vehicles, a tear-drop trailer, and a Winnebago turned food truck.

Highlights included Sarah’s ingenious compartmentalization of ‘Fran the Van’ – there’s even a wine rack in there!

The solar electricity hook up and the plumbing system on Andrew and Alessia’s ‘Firebus’ are technological inspirations and Steve’s teardrop trailer keeps getting better every time we see it.

Garlic a Go-Go served up delicious shawarma and fries and let us know that yes, that really is a truck canopy welded on top of a Winnebago.

Better than the tours was the chance to bounce ideas around with fellow adventurers, leaving everyone with ideas for future modifications aplenty.

Thanks to all of our featured vehicles and their owners:
Long Tall Sally – Chris and Allison
Jordan’s home on wheels
Goldie Rav – Amy
Max’s Pad – John
Fran the Van – Sarah
Teardrop – Steve
Firebus – Andrew and Alessia
Garlic a Go-Go’s Commercial Kitchen

Can’t wait for Van Slam ’16 – hope to see you there!
