Base Vehicle – As with any conversion you will need a base vehicle to kick start the work.

Setting a limit to £3,000 will buy you a great used van and if your budget affords it anything over the £10,000 price will get you a very new van.

Fittings – Be realistic for your budget. Luxury items come with a price tag so bear in mind your budget when planning your fittings. Everything from the bed to the kitchen sink will have a different value depending on the retailer and its origin but remember to work with your campervan and fit it accordingly.

It will be a good idea to check out local DIY stores as well as national shops to see where offers are on and available.
