We have been looking at doing this for years now, we have purchased a Chevy Van 1500 AWD to use as our base for the camper Van for 2 people. We bought it used from a local Telco, it has a roof rack (prefect for boats / etc) and an inverter preinstalled. I will be updating this page with the progress.
Requirements: - Mostly convertable back to cargo van if we need it (read: camper parts removable) This will be acommplished by the rv components being bolt in. - (Mostly Complete) Toilet (composting) - (Mostly Complete) Kitchenette (stove/bbq), wash basin, water tank - (Complete) Insulation for living compartment - Fridge - (Complete) Bed - (Started) Storage for camping supplies / food. - (Complete) Curtains between cab and back of van - (Mostly complete) Wood panel walls Nice to have: - Built in storage compartments - Solar system with extra battery and lighting - More windows - Roof extension (probably will not happen)
Here are the pictures before we picked it up
Here are the pictures from the conversion:
