How to convert a medium wheelbase transporter (L2H2) into a selfconverted camper van for 2 Persons and 1 dog? Watch here my vanbuild step by step :D

In 2018 I fulfilled my dream and converted a van into a camper van. We decided to buy a VW Crafter with medium wheelbase (L2H2). In this video, you can see how we insulate the van, lay cables, cut holes for the window and roof hatch, build the bed and furniture and installing solar and the electric system. Our construction plan includes an extendable bed so that you can sit opposite each other when it's retracted.
I learned a lot from other youtube videos, how to convert a van into a camper. The electrics with the solar system wasn't so complicated as I thought before. We want to stay off-grid, so a solar system is a must. Our german pinscher Chico had also a lot of fun at the van build. Now it's time to travel with the pack! How do you like our home on wheels? Do you want to see detailed footage on specific topics? Are you planning to convert a van yourself? Feel free to like, subscribe & share :D
