The outside and inside

The windows. The most striking difference at the outside is the mounting of the windows to the left at the sitting corner and at the right in the sliding door. Further 2 windows in the backdoors and a window in the roof. I have chosen fixed transparent windows (apart from the top window) as they are more beautiful and I seldom open the windows in the other camper. Usually the sliding door and/or top window are opened. If it is very hot and a lot of insects are present I can mount a mosquito net in the opening of the backdoors. This works satisfactory. Esthetically I prefer these windows to the hinged windows as the latter give the impression of pimples. Mounting these windows is relatively easy as they are made specifically for this van and they fit perfectly. From the inside it is clear which line you have to cut.

Entrance electricity and water. For electricity and water a filler cap and 230V socket have been installed. Every time it is exciting to make holes in the outside wall, as it is irreversible and has to be perfect in one go. Measuring very often, considering the supporting beams and taking care that both entrances are on the same height and not cross. 


Intake fresh air and exhaust pipe of the diesel heater. For these pipes holes have to be drilled in the floor, and the exhaust pipe has to be covered with a heat protecting socket.

Exit pipes for the clean and dirty water tank. For both pipes exit holes have been made in the floor. Always take care that no supporting beam is in the way

Bottom passage for leaking propane. In the propane box a hole in the floor has been made to give the more heavy propane the opportunity to escape in case of leakage. Not visible in the picture 

On top

The solar panel. For the passage of the cabels a hole in the roof has been made, which is covered by a cap, glued and sealed to prevent water coming in. The panel itself has been fixed by 4 corner holders, fixed with special glue. Selftapping screws fix the panel to the holders.

The top window. The window can be opened at 3 levels and either be closed by a mosquito net or darkening panel

View from the cabine

The insight has already been described in great detail, showing that the kitchen unit and toilet are directly connected to the bed and that the  the sitting corner adjoins the toilet. In the latter the Lagune table can if necessary positioned in such a way that both kitchen and chairs can be served. I have had all curtains made to measure. The ceiling has been made of 5mm thick slats which I sawed out of 7.5 cm beams, 3 m long. All wood has been protected against discoloration.

New are the IXXI-plates that I put against the walls because of color technical reasons. That I have chosen birds is because of my passion for these descendants of the dinosaurs. The bed takes a lot space, but underneath and on top of it there is a lot of storage space. That is the reason the bed is that high. Pay attention to the colors which make the inside more vivid. A part of the storage space is used to put away the propane tanks and the battery including accessories.

Kitchen unit

The kitchen unit with refrigerator and drawers. Underneath I put the waste water tank and on top the gas burners and the sink. The water tap operates with a pressure pump and the gas is propane. The refrigerator is compression and therefore dependent on the battery.  I have had the drawers 

 made to measure. The metal parts which were not covered by wood I covered with needle felt. I mounted 7 led-lights underneath the cupboards.

The sitting corner

The sitting corner with Lagune table to be mounted at two different positions. The 80 ltr water tank is located within the sitting place and can be approached from inside for inspection, cleaning or emptying the tank. The toilet room can be opened by a door at the front and a cover on top. Two swivel seats are of course part of this area and shown in the next picture

View from the bed

View of the cabine which has been closed by curtains. The swivel seats are indispensable. Windows can be darkened by roller blinds. The transition of the former loading cargo space to the cabine has a height difference of 20 cm, which can be used to accommodate the heater, the waterpump, pipes and electric wires.
