How to Fit Out a Van for Camping

If you buy your van used, there’s a good chance you will have to remove some items from the interior before you can start the conversion process. Remove any unwanted pre-existing fixtures and clean the floor to your comfort level.



Clean out your van’s interior to make room for your installations.

If you buy your van used, there’s a good chance you will have to remove some items from the interior before you can start the conversion process. Remove any unwanted pre-existing fixtures and clean the floor to your comfort level.



<a href="/Customize-the-Interior-of-Your-Van" title="Customize the Interior of Your Van">Insulate the floor, walls, and ceiling for protection in cold weather</a>.

If you intend to do any camping in cold environments or during the winter, consider installing insulation to keep the interior of the van comfortable. Use your measurements of the van’s interior to cut pieces of insulating material that will fit over the floor, walls, and ceiling of the van.__



Install a wooden floor to build the rest of your installations on.

You will need to install a wooden subfloor and top floor for the van to enable you to install the bed platform, kitchen, and any other installations you intend to add.



Build and install a platform for your bed.

Use plywood and lumber to construct a platform for your bed to go on. Consider installing a platform that not only supports your mattress, but also includes storage space underneath.



Build and install your kitchen counter.

You probably won’t be able to access an open fire all the time while camping. Having a dedicated kitchen space with room for a sink, a cutting board, and a portable stove will give you much more flexibility when it comes to cooking.__



Add a portable toilet and shower to the van.

If you’re uncomfortable with going to the bathroom in the woods or going days without showering, you’ll definitely need to invest in a portable toilet and portable shower to maintain a comfortable level of hygiene. Store these in the storage space under your bed to keep them out of sight.



Make sure you keep an energy source in your camping van.

You will most likely have items with you while camping that will need to be charged or recharged at some point. Consider packing a power converter, external battery, or portable charger before beginning your camping trip.



Pack flashlights or solar lanterns to have light at night.

Make sure you bring a source of light for when you’re parked in the wilderness at light. Instead of using your phone or an open-flamed candle, pack battery-powered flashlights or solar lanterns for safe and energy efficient illumination.



Stock your kitchen with cookware and cutlery.

Your kitchen won’t be nearly as useful if you forget to bring tools to cook and eat with! Make sure your kitchen area is stocked with reusable pots, pans, plates, and utensils, and that you bring a sponge and dish soap to wash them with.
