Time and Money
How long did it take and how much did it cost are the first two questions people who know me ask, when they see the finished camper van. When I started the conversion I had an idea (budget) of how much but I had no idea of how long it would take, I do now !
The total time taken doing actual conversion jobs took 299 hours. I know this as I kept a build diary, what I did not include in the build diary is the thinking, research and sourcing parts time.
299 hours is a large commitment to make, the number of hours I was able to achieve each month was :-
I worked on my van on the evenings and at the weekends, but I always made sure I had some time away from it also.
The total cost for a conversion like this is £3k to £5k, as it totally depends on your design and the materials / fitting you use.
The approach I took on this conversion was to fit the best equipment, as is fitted in the £40k+ professional camper vans.
