Choosing the best van for a camper conversion can get tricky. It’s a critical decision to a successful van build and to how the van works for you.
Buying a van is one of the most nerve wrecking steps of the whole DIY camper van conversion process.
Consider how you plan to use your converted van. If you never intend to drive off a highway or black top road, you may not need to make any modifications at all.
The batteries are charged when we drive, by our solar panels and we can top them up when we have a hook up facility too.
The next step in converting a van into a camper is the insulation, ventilation and lining.As with much of your conversion, getting the insulation and ventilation right up front is critical.
Firstly, decide on how much water to carry, how often and where you can fill up.If you don’t intend to live off grid much and can rely on refilling at campgrounds, small tanks are probably all you need.
A well insulated van, cosy soft furnishings, appropriate clothes and bedding might be enough to keep you comfortable.
Camper kitchens might be relatively small but with good planning and thought, can be functional and well equipped.
