My Van Conversion

Planning My Van Conversion

By on 4th June 2016

Before starting any work on the van I need to plan as much as possible.

Instead of trying to remember everything, I found the best way to plan is to write/draw it in a book.

What i want in my van

  1. Sofa Bed
  2. Sink
  3. Gas
  4. Gas hob
  5. Water
  6. Instant water heater
  7. cupboards
  8. Lights
  9. Music
  10. Power supply
  11. Safe
  12. Windows
  13. Solar Panel
  14. Water pump
  15. Tv

These are the main items i need for my van conversion.

 

Once I knew what I wanted I needed to think were to put it all.

I spent so many hours just sitting in the back of my van planning where it will all go. There is much to think about, my mind would just wonder in to space trying to take it all in. Breaking it all down in to stages help and then didn’t seem like it was going to take forever.

So my tips before starting to build would be

  1. Plan loads and loads
  2. Write/draw everything down on paper (it will help to remember)
  3. Dont PANIC. It might seem like you have taken on something too big to complete but breaking it down in to stages will help.
  4. Always keep pen/pencil and paper in the van. New ideas will constantly come to mind.
  5. Lastly. Enjoy every moment of the build.

Next step, Stripping the inside of my van.

I have converted a standard Ford Transit van into a campervan to travel and explore the world wherever my heart desires.
