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.

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

In this video, we add a rear bumper trim, sidebars, built our kitchen unit from scratch, installed a window, made a table & spice racks, added a tap, pressure switch & submersible pump, had our upholstery completed, added an ARB awning and Deluxe room, and various other finishing touches.

This is part 3 of 3, the final instalment in this mini-series.

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) travelling around Europe full time, so feel free to subscribe to follow our adventures!
