How to convert a campervan step by step

Helpful symbols throughout rate the tasks from easy to difficult and show you what types of skills or tools will be required for each step. The tasks are ordered to help keep your self build on track and more than 400 colour photos clarify how to build, convert, install and set up each part of your camper conversion.

How to design a campervan interior

There are a number of camper conversion ideas and interior layouts presented in the guide. What campervan bed design do you want: a folding bed, a rock and roll bed or a platform bed with storage underneath? How many belted seats do you need? Do you want swivel seats or a cab bench? Do you need a fridge? There is a lot to consider when taking on a DIY camper conversion, but this guide makes you ask the important questions so you can design the campervan you want.

How to install campervan electrics

Motorhome and camper van electrics is probably one of the most daunting parts of a DIY conversion, but it is an important part of making your camper conversion comfortable on the road. Over five sections, this guide discusses everything from how to install a leisure battery, to mains power, inverters, crimping a terminal and wiring lights. For people converting newer vehicles, there is a section on vehicles with smart regenerative charging.

Plumbing water systems and tanks

The water system in your camper is almost as important as your electrical system. The guide discusses basic water systems, underslung tanks, heated water, showers, toilets, water purifiers, waste water and drainage with helpful colour photos and diagrams explaining how everything works.

Conversion insurance, budgets and regulations for self builders

There are two example self build conversion budgets, one for a mid spec 2 berth campervan conversion and one for high spec 4 berth motorhome conversion. Some cost control measures are also suggested to help keep your self build budget on target. The ads throughout offer inspiration for suppliers and parts.

Lastly, the guide discusses regulations governing self build and DIY conversions, including gas, electrical, seating and insurance, and the tools you will need to complete your camper conversion.
