Stage 1 - Stripping my van to turn it into a camper.

Hi everybody! Im new to the forum and really keen to transform my van into a camper. Ok, I know its a transit but it was in really good nick and they have a bit more room in the back than the Windsurfing t4's. Anyway, I have now just got the van and have started to remove all the plywood from the roof and the walls in a bid to insulate behind these panels with Kingspan reflective insulation. Should keep me warm in the winter months and cooler in the summer (well thats the theory) After I get this done I plan to wire it for both shorepower and install 12v leisure batteries with a spilt charging system. I am going to include a freshwater system prob manual to save on batteries and a few lights possible led's. As far as gas goes I am not sure. Maybe just stick to using the camping gaz stoves as I don't wanna blow the thing up.But that could change. If I can afford it really want a eberspacher for those cold days windsurfing. :-) I'll stick more photos up once I get the insulation done. Great Site by the way!

Hi welcome to forum, I

Hi welcome to forum, I strongly recomend that you sit down and plan what you want first, plan you cubbourd arrangements and accessories, and what you want installed electric wise, I have helped and wired in many campers and this helps other wise things do not always goe to plan and sometimes you have to start again,where are you to doing this.

Wiring???

Why get an inverter and go from there.
Frame the back and then insulate using better
materials then you're thinking.
