DIY Campervan Conversion

Undertaking a DIY campervan conversion project is one of the coolest, rewarding and exhausting things we’ve ever done!

We spent 2500 hours converting our van into a camper and have lived in her ever since. She’s a 2005 Mercedes Sprinter 411cdi. 

Her long wheel base give us enough space for an onboard bathroom and with her 4×4 capability we don’t need to worry too much about the driving conditions.

You’ll look back on your own build with nothing but pride on a job well done. Here’s our 10 step guide on how to convert a van into a camper and get road trip ready.

Where will you do the conversion? A conversion takes up a lot of space with the van, the tools and the parts you’ll take in and out of the vehicle.

Do you have the time to commit to the conversion? A basic and simple conversion can be done super fast. Others take an age.

Tools & Skills Do you know what tools you need throughout the build and do you already own them? If not, can your borrow them from friends or family?
