The bed was the last thing i attempted building as in my mind it was the simpler structure. Well, surprise surprise, once again I was proved wrong. It only took me 2 days to build it but oh dear, how i struggled! As with everything else during the conversion, this was my first attempt building a bed. It’s not perfect but it does the job.
Another scary step of your van conversion: installing the gas to use for the kitchen.
It i VERY important to plan thoroughly were and how to install your gas bottle and to be aware all of the necessary safety rules. You really don’t want to mess up with gas!
After approximately two months of searching, an ad popped up on Gumtree for a 2001 Renault Kangoo with 5 doors and with windows. The van only had 70k miles so I assumed it was mainly used by a private. It looked quite good from the pictures so I’ve decided to arrange a view the morning after.
