Full Van Conversion of a VW Crafter / DIY Campervan / Vanbuild for Couple + Dog

Am 5 Dez 2018 veröffentlicht
How to convert a medium wheelbase transporter (L2H2) into a selfconverted camper van for 2 Persons and 1 dog? Watch here my vanbuild step by step :D
In 2018 I fulfilled my dream and converted a van into a camper van. We decided to buy a VW Crafter with medium wheelbase (L2H2). In this video, you can see how we insulate the van, lay cables, cut holes for the window and roof hatch, build the bed and furniture and installing solar and the electric system. Our construction plan includes an extendable bed so that you can sit opposite each other when it's retracted.
I learned a lot from other youtube videos, how to convert a van into a camper. The electrics with the solar system wasn't so complicated as I thought before. We want to stay off-grid, so a solar system is a must. Our german pinscher Chico had also a lot of fun at the van build. Now it's time to travel with the pack! How do you like our home on wheels? Do you want to see detailed footage on specific topics? Are you planning to convert a van yourself? Feel free to like, subscribe & share :D

  • Our freedom to travel in #Portugal without major restrictions is coming to an end. Starting 9th of January, there's a new Law that prohibits overnight stays and parking in ALL places that are not designated for #Motorhomes or #Campervans (for the entire Portuguese territory).⁣ ⁣We gathered all the information and created a public Post quite complete about the current situation of #motorhomes and #vanlife in #Portugal. So to understand the context of this publication, we advise you to read this Post carefully. The link is available on our Bio (instagram.com/travelinspirept/) or can be accessed at www.patreon.com/travelinspirept. (only in Portuguese sorry)⁣ ⁣This is clearly the result of several situations that happened in the year 2020 and that the media insisted on emphasizing, often associating #motorhomes and #vanlifers to the pollution of the Alentejo and Algarve Coast.⁣ ⁣For us who have been traveling full-time for two years in our #van that has been legalized and has all the conditions to be self-sufficient, this is a major attack on our freedom. Our lifestyle is compromised when this freedom of choice is taken away.⁣ ⁣For those who follow us, mainly on DEname (dename.info), you know that we always practice and promote this way of life in a responsible and conscious way, always respecting space and nature, showing others how to do the same. This situation that is happening in Portugal, makes us deeply sad.⁣ ⁣There are two petitions currently underway so that we can reverse or change the law. Everyone's collaboration is very important and that is why we ask you to sign. Links to them are also available in our Bio.⁣ (instagram.com/travelinspirept/) ⁣Lastly we ask you to share this Post, it is very important for us, so that we can raise awareness of this problem.⁣ Thank you so much. Stay safe! instagram.com/travelinspirept/

  • nice job. amazing amount of views.!

  • Welcome to Hungary (from Debrecen)! I wish you a good trip!

  • definitv das beste aller camper ausbau videos :-)

  • beau travail merci pour cette vidéo

  • The only thing I respect is the effort. Materials too rough. The build quality is very rough. It is obvious that the smallest possible budget was spent on vehicle transformation. Personally, I would rather not work like this. I would rather save enough money to do a better quality transformation with much better quality materials than these. Some steps in the transformation have not been followed. First you had to cut the window and the fan and only then put the insulation - armaflex. By cutting and grinding, you have certainly damaged the armaflex in some places. The inner decorative frame of the fan should have been mounted after the wooden slats and not so that they were above it, because you can see the rough cutting and rough treatment of the wooden slats around the fan. Window is to small.

  • Loved watching the process but the music was AWFUL so I watched it with no sound! Loved the layout, great video

  • 👍👍👍 Super 👍👍👍 Danke für das Video Richtig Geil !!!👍👍👍

  • 8:33 - i hope you installed that exit side towards the rear of the van? i cant tell from the video.

    • BikeStuff thanks for replying! But don’t you always close the vent when driving ?

    • @Laynom the exit opens towards the front of th van, when driving the air pressure will be constantly trying to open the vent, thus eventually snapping it and just ripping the vent out, the exit side should always be facing the rear so the air flow goes over it and pushes it own.

    • What does that change? just curious

  • Wuerdest du auch umbauen einen crafter fuer mich gegen geld? Gern antwort an lukaswobs3@googlemail.com
