Building a traveling van- From Germany to South India

Travel Forums Asia Building a traveling van- From Germany to South India

One day I realized that I had to leave

The idea of riding from the beautiful Germany to the south of India is the most appealing thing to be since first class in quantum mechanics.
I am mostly a newby, I had made lots of climbing trips, camping and traveling, but I have never bought a van and spend so much time fixing it.
As I am in the process of finishing up and making my best to have a comfortable 4-wheeled house, I am thinking about the challenges that my home has to surpass.

Diesel or Gasoline? I am thinking which one would be more available in Europe, then in Easter EUrope, then in Middle East, then in India. Which is the best option?

Spare-parts! For sure sure sure the van is going to break down, hopefully not in the middle of the remote Pakistan, but if it happends, what would be the brand to which I am more certain to get spare parts?

I am haping to get responses from people on the road!

Thanks!
