This is the story and video tour of a man who turns his Honda Element into a DIY campervan. From the outside, it looks like an ordinary compact sport utility vehicle. Only if you look carefully enough, you might find a tiny solar panel on the roof that’s secured using magnets.

Inside, the vehicle has been completely renovated with wood paneling, a tiny sink with running water, a wardrobe closet, insulation, a fold-out bed, and more! This is probably one of the best small camper conversions that I’ve seen. What do you think of it?

Today I wanted to show you a great example of how you can turn an existing cargo van into an inexpensive DIY camper.

If you’ve ever thought about van dwelling then you’ll probably love this van conversion.

The person who converted this van wanted to create something that she can travel with and go one or two nights without any hookups on her way to her destination.

The cool part about this one is that it has standing room thanks to the fact that it’s a high top van that she found on Craigslist.

Since it’s a high top she’s able to change clothes, shower, and even cook in there with comfort.

Here, let me show you the van:

Favian is a civil rights lawyer who enjoys a nomadic life from his van! He can even do Zoom hearings from the comfort of just about anywhere because of his office setup and Starlink connection.

He purchased the van as an empty shell and converted it over the course of about 10 months. He had a few “must-haves” including an indoor shower and a bed that could fit his height. Favian created a great office space with swivel seat, and another one with a makeshift standing desk for those long days! Enjoy the tour.

Lindsey spent some time after college traveling in a truck with her friends, which planted the seed for her now-nomadic life in a van conversion. Because she’s a travel nurse, she can take assignments all over the country and live there for a few months at a time in her van!
