This van can be configured for either 1 – 2 adults or 2 adults + 2 small children (under 5yrs age). The rear of the van has a permanent 6’ x 4’ double mattress with small cut out headboards providing a small amount extra- I’m 6’1” and have never had a problem. Above this is a removable child’s bunk bed that has quick release catches to slide forward should you want to sit on the back of the van looking out to sea (highly recommended!), and you might even find a secret slide out table for tea and biscuits.
More recently we have developed another removable bunk for our second child that can be setup above the second row seating. Note: both bunk beds are for small children’s only, they are not long enough or strong enough for adults.
We bought this van 2 weeks after the birth of our first child and began the conversion at the end of 2017. The dream was to provide some additional freedom now we had a new family and continue camping adventures and trips abroad.
This van has all the essentials to be self-sufficient ‘off grid’ if required, we spent over 3 weeks traveling to Norway in 2019 covering nearly 4,000 miles. It never let us down; we wild camped for 90% of the trip operating on solar, gas and diesel. We had hot water, heating, bathroom and cooking facilities and hot showers every day – what more can you ask for in a mobile small space? Many vans do not offer all of this.
The full build and adventures are documented on our Instagram @beyondthehighway – every stage of the build, the process of fabricating, crafting and designing all shown through hundreds of photos and followed by 6,000+ other enthusiasts – this makes us very proud.
As shown within the build photos on Instagram, the van is fully insulated including the floor using a combination of vapour barrier, Celotex and Earth Wool. Walls and ceiling are covered in bespoke TG&V European Cedar cladding to give the van a warm, natural and cosy atmosphere.

—On-board Water facilities—
CAK Tanks 75L fresh water tank mounted under vehicle within chassis rails – external filler cap in rear RH quarter panel. Drain tap behind rear RHS wheel.
CAK Tanks 50L grey water tank mounted under vehicle floor on RHS. Drain tap behind driver’s door for easy alignment at drain points
Shurflo pressurized pump and filter
Fiamma A20 accumulator for steady water pressure
Propex Malaga 5/5E Storage water heater- operating on either Gas or 240V
2 sinks with hot and cold mixer taps (bathroom and kitchen)
6Kg (12.5L) ‘Gas-it’ LPG tank. Fitted inside a bespoke aluminium housing in the rear loadspace area with an external filler in the rear quarter. This is a very simple and effective setup, very cheap to fill (approx £7) with zero maintenance. The bottle provides gas via correctly fitted and tested copper lines to a valved manifold distributing gas to the oven, hob and Malaga hot water heater – all circuits can be isolated separately.
Note: this system has been correctly tested using pressure testing equipment available and used by me at my place of work – however there isn’t a certificate provided.
Planar 2D Diesel 2Kw air heater, fitted under the second row seating with direction valve to distribute hot air to either the main living space or the bathroom (very useful for drying wet clothing).
The diesel heater is standalone it has its own bespoke 1 gallon aluminium tank under the vehicle floor with easy access filler. Unlike other setups this does not use the gas required for cooking and hot water, nor does it take from the vehicle main fuel tank. Keeping it as a separate system made sense to us and works very well. A digital controller can be found in the centre of the van.
Functional and attractive kitchen area that extends past the sliding door opening. The solid wood worktop has a large stainless sink with rotating feature hot/cold mixer tap, all fitted with waste pipes and traps. Multiple cupboards and slide out end boxes provide plenty of storage options.
Twin gas hob fitted at one end, near the door and sliding window opening to allow ventilation – easy to keep clean
Thetford Duplex 700 Oven/Grill, correctly mounted and vented under the kitchen worktop.
Dometic Coolfreeze CFX 35W compressor cooler fridge – Probably the purchase we are most impressed with. It takes no time to get to temperature, it’s almost silent and uses less than 7amps. We fitted this on a sliding platform in the walkway. It can also be disconnected and taken outside for a picnic if required – it’s brilliant.
In our opinion a bathroom is essential and we would never be without this in a van. The flexibility it provides and freedom to get on with your adventures and route is unquestionable.
This van is fitted with a small, but perfectly manageable bathroom with Aqua Board walls and a bespoke aluminium shower tray. With a sliding curtain this space essentially becomes a wet room.
Inside is a Thetford 345 Porta Potti with a capacity of 12L, a small corner sink with a hot & cold mixer tap. On the back wall is a shower mixer unit and detachable shower head unit.
Additionally the bathroom has its own blown air inlet from the Planar heater, this means you can heat the bathroom before use or use this room as a drying room for wet clothes or gear.
—Dining area and seating—
The driver and passenger seats are replaced with more comfortable and fully adjustable seats from a BMW 3 Series – these are mounted on swivel bases.
When rotated to face rearwards the front seats become part of a dining area with the twin second row seats. A table stored behind the second row seats locates into a sliding rail below the window and is secured by a floor mount.
The rear of the van has a huge loading area, the RHS is mainly taken up with the aluminium Gas box that also has the vehicle tools, jack and safety triangle – there’s also plenty of space for other items.
The centre has a large pull out draw and fold down cupboard for easy access camping items, hook up cable and cleaning products for example.
The LHS is the main storage, this area is 4ft deep and swallows up outside seating, tables, pushchairs and windbreaks. The entire rear loadspace has LED strip lighting for those night time searches.
—Exterior and Roof—
The vehicle roof has two opening vents including a ‘Fantastic fan’ above the kitchen area that can be set on a thermostat to push or pull air in and out the living space. This is especially useful during cooking and also days and nights in hot climates.
The outside of the van has a Fiamma F45S awning (approx. 3m in length). There is some slight damage to one of the aluminium braces, but it operates perfectly fine.
There is also a custom built aluminium ladder to access the roof for cleaning or general view admiring.
Above the rear door there’s a rear view camera linked to a screen at the front, this helps greatly when manoeuvring and towing.
The van is also fitted with a Towsure tow bar and electrics kit. Note: this van is rated to tow a braked load of 2800Kgs.
