Topic - Panel van conversion tips

lewiz - on 25 Jul 2014
Good evening

I'm looking for a van to drive 2 people around Europe for 2-3 months to climb. When not on trips I need to use it for weekend trips in the UK so it needs to transport 3 people minimum.

I've ruled out large vans so I'm thinking something the size of a SWB or MWB transit.

Budget for conversion (e.g. after buying a van) is 2000-3000 to include bed, fridge, porta potti, shelves, etc. I'm thinking of a 'standard side layout' (e.g. )
The standard layouts look great but seem lacking in terms of storage space. I'd want large bouldering pad, 2 60l rucksacks, tent, sleeping bag, etc. This lot will obviously all go in but it seems it will be pretty horrible at the same time as living.

What's everybody's experience with MWB-sized Transit campers? Should I be worried about storage space?

cheers, Lewis
