The idea make an easy way to convert Volkswagen t4 caravelle in a camper van..... easy to re convert from campervan to 9 people bus.

It must be easy to convert and easy to revert...

Step 2: Making the bed structure

From minibus 9 seats (3+3+3 seats) to 2 people bed a little kitchen a table and mini chem WC.

The bed closed lie on the rear of 3 places rear seats, without change the internal structure.

In Italy minibus must be drive without bed, kitchens, table Is allow only baggage! not fixed structures

is allow only remove some seats to obtain more space for baggage.

to realize the bed base I use betulla ply wood painted with blue water enamel.

Step 3: Make the swivel driver seat
