How to convert a van into a Motorhome / Camper Van, bit by bit
Starting off with a fiat Ducato van and convert it into a camper van / motorhome
Firstly you have to design, plan and organise where you want all of the equipment to be within the vehicle even down to where the lights and sockets will go before you start.
Cut the holes for the seitz window and roof lights and fit battening to support all of the components you need and the panels that will attach over the battening. This conversion has thicker than average insulation combined with reflective material bonded to the internal metal surface, which enables very comfortable use all year round. The rear privacy glass windows come as a complete kit to fit, and with some time and patients can make the rear of the campervan look stunning.
The base vehicle has 6 speed gearbox, Power assisted and height adjustable steering, ABS, Electrically operated cab windows, Electrically adjustable door mirrors, Remote control central locking, Colour coded bumper, Drivers air bag Radio/CD Player, Armrests to driver and passenger swivel seats, and LED day running lights.
