This Man Converted a Plain Looking Volkswagen Work Van Into a Stylish and Functional Home on Wheels.

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.
