Before you buy, rent a van and take the test

Don’t rush into buying a van to camp and make it livable. Rent one first to get an idea of ​​whether you really like to travel like this. In addition, you will be able to see if it is comfortable and spacious for you and for everything you need to carry while traveling.

Van life is a style of travel that is not for everyone. Camping is an important financial investment, so you shouldn’t take it lightly.

Which van is best for camping?

Not all vans are the same, so you need to choose the one that best suits your needs. If you want a camper with plenty of interior space, then a large van will be best for you. But if you want a little more compact and manageable, then a small van will suffice.

It depends on your height, the luggage you need to carry and the mobility you want to have during your trip. Larger, more space and more amenities, but you’ll need to keep an eye out for routes with low ceilings or narrow paths.

Get inspired by interior design

Once you’ve chosen which van you want to camp with, you’ll need to start thinking about interior design according to the needs and utilities you want to have in it.

A good way to get inspired is to search the hashtags #van #vanlife #camper or similar on social media. You can also get inspired by doing a search on Google or especially on Pinterest, where there will be a multitude of images related to the camper van.

Choose the best place to camp

A change like this in a van cannot be made anywhere on the street. You must have a space where you have enough mobility and the right tools to make a change of this size.

YouTube, your best ally

If you have decided to make your own changes to the van but do not know exactly where to start, the Internet is the solution to all your problems.

On YouTube you can find many tutorials that explain the steps required to adapt your van to the camper world. However, keep in mind that they should serve as a guide and that you should interpret and adapt them to the size of your vehicle and your needs.

Approves modifications

Every change in a vehicle must be approved to ensure the safety and integrity of the van, its occupants and other drivers and pedestrians.

It is also necessary for the insurance to cover any damage you may have during your trip.


Camping a van is not a one-day affair and it takes time, so don’t be impatient. Better a poor horse than no horse at all.
