These are links to other websites or YouTube channels that have genuinely useful information about van conversions – believe me, there are a LOT of utterly useless videos out there, either badly filmed or giving terrible information (and in many cases, both). The ones on this list are worth your time:

Greg Virgoe: the most comprehensive and scientific, reasoned approach to van building. Watch especially his video about insulation calculations, and the one he did about battery sizing. Oh, and the one about electrics. In fact, just watch all of his campervan build, they are seriously good. https://www.youtube.com/GregVirgoe/

Kiravans: this is a company that sells van-build accessories for campers, mainly VWs by the looks of things, but their “how to install a bonded window” video is the best one on YouTube. Clear, slow, well-filmed and, usefully, they even show the differences between cutting out your panels using different tools. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PZGe4VPqDQ
