THANK YOU About Me I have been building campervan conversions for several years now Since the 1980s! This Ford Transit is my latest conversion. I came up with this design because it creates a lot more space when the bed is in the made up position and uses standard size melamine/ conti-board, beech finish, this makes it an easy conversion 'perfect for the absolute beginner'. Many people have commented on this design and have asked where it was built, they find it hard to believe that this is a home built conversion, After receiving so many positive comments I decided to compile an easy to follow guide to help people who would like to build their own conversion on a low budget but still maintain a high quality finish. ____________________________________ THE LAYOUT The layout plan showing position of each individual item. The layout of this camper gives lots of floor space, when the bed is in the made position. This is not the case in most campers, please have a look at the layout. ____________________________________ I designed this Campervan, so that i could build all the furniture from standard size laminated Conti boards, this makes building the furniture a lot easier and eliminates the need to make-up frames for each unit first, these boards are sold in lengths of 8ft and widths from 9 inches to 36 inches as can be seen in the photos. I purchased mine from wickes, and they have a beech finish, but these boards are available from almost any DIY store. For instance the top cupboard doors are made from 9 inch Conti board this is just trimmed to the desired length. Then using an hot iorn, edging strip is applied to the Cut sides, the door handle is then attached using screws, the top cupboard door is now finished, how easy is that.
