Step 1: Easy Camper Van Conversion (VW T4 Caravelle 2500 TDI )
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
I reuse a swivel base from an other camper-van adapted to caravelle main seat
Step 4: Make the Curtains
The curtains was realized cutting with right shape cheap reflecting car sun shade
Step 6: The Campervan in Use
The camper van now is in use for first time
Step 7: Making the All in One Camping Box
Military Aluminium box as Baggage for camper-van
The box is also a base for the bed structure a table inside a cooking place to cook and prepare meat
Now I need a right dimension box with all I need during the camping holiday
- lantern (led)
- gas stove
- two or three pots (one for spaghetti)
- (Italian) coffee machine
- electric cable
- electric heather
Step 8: Make 2places Swivel Seat
The swivel base from a 3mm iron foil built with fewer holes cuts and welds possible
