Familys $50K Van Conversion For Trips

This post contains affiliate links.

Greg and Maria purchased this van intending to convert it, but Greg almost resold it because he was so overwhelmed by what a conversion would entail! Thankfully, a friend of his encouraged him not to give up, and the results of sticking to it are incredible! This family-friendly van conversion has safe seating for the four of them, and a Lagun table and swivel chairs so they can sit and eat together.

They chose to have a fixed bed in the back of the van for mom and dad, and their boys sleep in a tent since they only use the van for vacations and weekends away. Across from their kitchen, they included a bathroom with a shower stall and removable toilet. They can get more than five minutes of hot water! Let us know which feature of this van you love the most.

  • This couple built their family an amazing van conversion for $50,000! $25K went to the van purchase, and the other $25K was for the conversion itself.
  • They travel part-time in the rig, and set up a tent for their elementary-aged boys to sleep in, since they stay in campgrounds.
  • The couple has a full-sized memory foam mattress in the back of the bus.
  • To keep clean, they added a shower stall with a removable portable toilet.
  • For safety, they added another bench seat for the boys. The front chairs swivel around to create an awesome family dining table!
