Van 49: The Throne Room

At long last, I made an upgrade to the site of the portable Dometic toilet in the campervan, giving it a dedicated space which is easily accessible both for use and for taking the toilet out for emptying. This finally frees up the space next to it for permanent storage too.

Van 46: The Sky is Falling Down

I never liked the corner unit at the back of the van – it was badly made (by me), looked grotty and didn’t hold much in when going round corners. Plus the shelf over the kitchen wasn’t much better. So, I’m re-making them but in order to do this, the job ends up much bigger than planned as I need to re-route some of the ceiling wiring.

Vlog 27: Exhausting Work

Having tested the Propex HS2000 propane heater in my DIY campervan, I decided the exhaust was still rather hot despite having wrapped it in a heatproof material, so I added another layer of a different kind of exhaust wrap as well. This has made it very cool indeed where the exhaust pipe exits the van, which is a good thing because that’s quite near where the filler pipe is for the LPG tank.

In this excruciatingly detailed chat to camera, I go through my spreadsheet of costs for the DIY conversion of my Toyota Proace van into a self built campervan.

Vlog 22: Sunny Side Up

This is an update vlog of many things rather than one specific project. I show the solar panels, some electrical tweaks I’ve made, the new van cushions, the fridge now in situ. Plus I go over some of the seemingly endless list of things that still need to be done.

Vlog 20: Gas guzzler

For the gas supply in the van I wanted something that was refillable and could be used abroad but didn’t cost the earth for refills so I ended up buying a Gaslow R67 6kg LPG cylinder with filling kit. In this video, I show how much pondering I had to do in order to install the filler section.
