How we converted our VW T5 into a DIY campervan for a vanlife adventure.

If you’re looking to convert a van into a camper but you’re a newbie like us and you’re not sure where to start or even what order you should be doing things etc. we hope that this video can help!

Maybe this can act as a sort of beginner’s guide!

This is our first time undertaking a project of this size, we’ve learned a lot along the way and made some mistakes too. Maybe this video will help you avoid some of the things we overlooked during our build.

We cover many topics such as insulation, battening the floor, laying down new ply flooring, sound deadening, Kiravans swivel seat, LED lighting and even furniture making. Slowly turning our lovely Volkswagen T5 panel van into a comfortable camper!

Here’s our blog post for useful materials and tools:

This is part 1 of 3, anything we have missed will be included in the upcoming instalments. So keep your eyes peeled for part 2 & 3!

Please leave us a comment, a like and even a share if you think someone may benefit from the video.

We really do appreciate all the interactions we have with you guys and try to respond to everyone 🙂

We’ll be living in our simple VW T5 conversion for a year (hopefully) traveling around Europe full time, so feel free to subscribe to follow our adventures!
