Peugeot Boxer camper conversion

Easy driver

Driving a van is way more easy then a huge camper because of some obvious reasons. A van will not be extremely wide, can fit most car parking lots and drives not bad at all. But of course you will lose the race against a car or minicamper if you come across roundabouts or curvy mountain roads..

Stealth parking

A big white camper will draw a lot of attention when parking in urban areas, or off grid. Imagine a van in the city center.. If you don't mind the city noise at night you can easily park wherever you want. A van will also be easier to 'hide' if you're going for a adVANture in the forest compared to a big white RV.

Easy off grid

Getting your camper to that one spot on Park4night can be a pain if your van is to long, high or wide. Especially the overhang behind the rear wheels and almost no ground clearance can be a pain. Vans offer more maneuverability and a lot of storage for longer periods off grid.

The vanbuild.

The Peugeot Boxer van conversion has undergone some upgrades over the last years. When building a van you must know that building is never over. There is always something you’d like to change or upgrade. That’s the coolest things about converting a van. 

The Peugeot Boxer has undergone a kitchen makeover after one year of full-time vanlife. Kitchen cupboards became drawers with soft close rails, and the fridge moved from the right side of the van to the left side.

The van was originally a workers van and Joren en Emma bought it as being a self converted camper. However they did not buy it to let it be in that state. The weekend after the purchase the whole van was stripped. The complete van was properly rebuild so it had a shower/toilet and a lot of storage under the bed.

As you can see the van conversion wasn’t really looking good. Also the van was built really really bad. But the intention was never to leave it like this so we had no hard feelings.

With the goal in mind the build was going very well. The vanbuild has a kitchen in front of the sliding door so cooking is always with a view. The front seat can swivel so every inch of the van is being used to the max. 

Everything was being stripped and some parts could be saved or sold. The fridge was sold second hand in only a few hours. Apparently there is a booming market for old camper fridges.. 

The van was carefully built step by step. All the rust was taken care of before the insulation and interior went in.

It’s all about the details. The tiles behind the sink are actually a vinyl sticker print. but it looks so awesome!

In Morocco the roof rack and ladder were made. This makes a nice place to watch the sun go down or enjoy summer days at the beach. 
The surfboards are also way easier accessible with the ladder.

The storage underneath the bed is insane. Here is plenty of room for all the gear being taken on the road. 

The van is home to Joren and Emma. Everything is well thought out and it’s all covered in the vanbuild video. Check it out and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
