I’m excited to share with you this man’s unique conversion of a 2003 Volkswagen LT 28 into a family camper van.
After spending two weeks finalizing the design, it took him less than a month to finish the project.
He used a serious amount of insulation in this build, making this a true all-season RV.
One problem with turning a van into a full-time living space is maintaining sufficient air flow and ventilation. To fix this issue, he added a skylight roof vent with a black-out curtain. It’s a good idea too as there’s a permanent propane cook top in the kitchen area.
I wouldn’t want to cook anything on that unless I had a lot of air flow.
With running water, 220 V electric (the builder lives in the Netherlands) and plenty of sleeping space, you could definitely stay comfortable for a while in this van.
Take the tour below and watch the video of the amazing transformation.
Foil-faced fiberglass insulation has a much higher R rating than rigid foam.

Removing the table makes room for the bed.
Attach a tent to the side of the van and you’ve got some nice digs for the family.
Watch how he took a stock Volkswagen cargo van and turned it into a family camper.
