In 2008, my wife and I converted a Ford Transit van to a small motorhome/campervan conversion, with onboard fresh and waste water, electricity, stove, toilet and double bed/sofa – plus plenty of storage. Since then, we’ve spent about 16 weeks away in the van, travelling for up to 4 weeks at a time.
The whole conversion is documented here, but to provide a quick and fun introduction, I’ve now produced a video photo diary of the whole conversion, starting with the van as I bought it and ending with the finished result.
In less than 2 minutes, you can see all the stages of the conversion in progress, from start to finish. Of course, it took a bit longer than that in reality but this video should give you a good idea of the process we went through in converting the van:
