I'm heading to Europe in a couple of months and will be buying a van to covnert to a camper. Has anyone had any experience with this type of project?
If so, I'd love to hear how your build went!
I have been around Europe many a year ago but never in my own vehicle. Unfortunately I haven't converted a van to camper so I can't really give you any hints. What I have done around Australia in our van is to have a long hard look at what electronic devices you intend to use (ie. fridge, lights, computers, phones etc).
I can only recomend that you set up a good 12v/24v system that is easily charged either by electrical charging or onboard solar (keeping in mind that outlets are different overseas to Aust, as well as voltages).
I am keen to see how you go. Please keep us updated during the build.
Here are some examples of what we're looking to do:
My favourite is this one below (from @thevanventure on instagram). Having a full-time setup is a must for us but this design also allows for a full kitchen and seating at a table. Also liking the light colours and natural timber look.
Wow, how exciting for you. Looking forward to reading more. I would love to one day travel around Australia in a campervan.
