A documentary about custom vans and the vannin' lifestyle
by Andrew J Morgan and Nick Nummerdor.

Vans and the Vannin' Lifestyle
Often thought of as the outcasts of the automotive world, Vanner's and their vans provide an extraordinary glimpse into a a subculture that saw it's rise and high-water mark in the late 70's.  Vans were everywhere back then. They became affordable rolling rooms filled with shag carpet, bubble windows, moon roofs, wet bars, and full size beds.  The customized van was representative of a parent's worst nightmare and a young person's wet dream.  But, just as fast as they rose in popularity, they faded; leaving only an echo on american pop culture.

So what was and is vannin all about?  In July of 2012, we set out to answer that question.  Our film is comprised of footage taken over the course of 6 days at the 40th National Truck-In (known as the Van Nationals) in Elkhorn, WI.  We lived out of our own vans and filmed the many colorful characters that inhabit the world of vannin'.  We learned about the history, the parties, the vans and, ultimately, the family that vanning has become.
