Boondocker 3.0 Van Conversion: Built for Cooking!

This post contains affiliate links.

Josh loves to cook, and his previous two van conversions didn’t have the space he needed to make amazing dishes on the road. So in his latest van, Boondocker 3.0, he made sure to have double countertops and a super cool “speakeasy” cabinet that rises from behind his pop-up shower.

His van conversion is built to keep him out of campgrounds and in nature, so it comes equipped with plenty of solar power to sustain his needs. He chose to close off the cab but included a super narrow door so he could access it if he needed to. His bed is fixed, and there’s a composting toilet under the bench that feeds to a tank. What do you think of Josh’s van?

  • Josh was living in Miami and getting into outdoor activities, and wanted a way to spend more time outdoors.
  • He started with his first van conversion, which was a DIY build. He eventually upgraded from that into the Boondocker 2.0.
  • The Boodocker 3.0 is his first van that he had professionally built by LuberCraft and this design includes solutions to all the “irks” he found with his previous vans.
  • He is the co-founder of Vanlife Outfitters, which is the go-to shop and blog for the best vanlife products and DIY support.
  • Wait until you see the awesome pop-up shower stall he has in the rig, as well as a composting toilet that feeds into a tank for less-messy clean up.
