How to convert a Van into an Off-Grid Camper


You probably already know all those projects that show you how to convert a van into an off-grid camper. But what about projects that teach you how to do this in a short period of time? Here is a success story, of someone who managed to turn a van into an off-grid camper in just 17 days. This camper includes a comfy fixed bed, kitchen units and lots of clever storage spaces. The entire camper is powered by solar power, so the owner can make use of an off-grid energy source to power the camper and its features. To learn more about this small but complex van turned into an off-grid camper, watch the video below…

    That looks awesome, though I’m a little concerned about just how much weight all that woodwork adds.. is it still friendly fuel consumption wise?

    I put glass wool, then a vapor barrier and after a counter litonage, I put the multi layer insulation. Several people finally told me that glass wool was liable to rot due to condensation.
    I wonder if I should take it off. What do you think ?

    Gorgeous. Home away from home. Too much weight, however, if you’re planning on touring the country…between all the framing, cladding and built-in furniture, you’ve lowered your mpg substantially and also made it top heavy in strong winds. I’d thought about starting with a passenger van first, then painting out the windows, because they are already insulated, carpeted and ventilated.
    Terrific engineering, designing, and attention to detail. Love the cutout side window and inset lighting. Micro-cameras on the outside [transmitted to your phone?] allows you to know who (or what) is outside at any time.
    Thanks for posting!
