Musician Joe Edwards and his wife Beth added a lot of unique features to their camper van conversion. The exterior of their 2013 Citroën Relay is customized with mountain decals and a 250-watt solar panel, while the inside is cozy and rustic.
The cooking space has a dual burner LPG stove, fridge, and a sink with a foldaway tap. There are three water storage containers (two fresh and one waste), and drawers and cupboards to store food and kitchenware.
The kitchen countertop is made of real solid oak and finished with Danish oil. Beside the kitchen, a table drops down for more counter space and reveals a hidden storage area for spices.
A wooden mountain shelf is mounted on the wall to store small items like soap. There are hooks underneath to hold mugs and handmade Moroccan backsplash tiles on the wall below.
The interior was insulated with two layers, including a vapor barrier to protect against moisture. There’s also a roof light/vent over the kitchen equipped with a fly screen and blackout blinds.
Between the dropdown table and cab area, the van has its own small bathroom with a barn-style door and Moroccan doorknob. Inside there’s a Thetford toilet with 12-V flush and an internal hatch for waste disposal. It’s decorated with a porthole mirror and a wooden shelf for toiletries.
The bed’s in the rear of the van with a custom reflex foam mattress. Under the bed, there’s a large drawer facing inwards to hold clothes, and a drawer facing outwards that can be accessed from around back. The van’s electrical components are also set up underneath the bed including two heavy-duty leisure batteries, an 1800-watt inverter, and a solar charge controller.
Two reading lights were added above the bed, and a map of the world—hand-cut from real oak—decorates one of the walls. A unique coat rack is also on the wall with a hand-cut deer image and small antlers to hang jackets.
Dining can be set up in the front cab area. There’s a permanently fixed table mount between the seats with a detachable wooden tabletop that can be stowed away while driving. Both of the seats can swivel towards each other and are kept clean with matching seat covers.
The two rear doors have tinted windows and curtains with thermal blackout lining. There’s another large curtain that divides the cab area from the rest of the van to keep light from shining in.
The van is currently for sale by the owners in the UK. For more information, see the eBay listing here. You can also get the full tour in this video:
