William Jarvis – Honest Camper
A young-ish dad, William Jarvis, and his son Jack (then 5yrs old) rented a 1987 VW Westfalia and the two of them drove up the sunshine coast in British Columbia, for some memory making. The experience of living out of a retro VW van inspired William to think creatively about how it could be improved, marketed, and expanded into a successful business. “More people should be doing this!”
