Camper Remodel 01: Remodelling for travel (walkthrough)




Remodeling this 70’s camper for long-term traveling – follow the process as we turn it into an awesome 1 room micro apartment.

The camper is an oldie, and it’s both leaking and rusty, so it’s going to be a big project. It cost us around $800, and hopefully everything will work out just fine, so we end up with a nice custom designed camper – ready for long-term adventures!

We intend on using it to travel Europe. We live in Denmark at the moment, which is where we will work on the camper. We will put up a series of videos, so you can follow every step of the process. It’s a 1975 vintage camper, and the last few years it hasn’t been out camping, so we had to change a tire, as it was completely done.

This first video shows the initial state of the camper on the inside, and as you can see it’s all dark and old wooden panels and lots of drawers an cabins everywhere. We are going to take everything out, and put in a new floor, as well as a new kitchen and a custom-made bed with storage.

    Uhmmm girl, your cute but use your brainiac! People like and want original, not some doctored up thrown together modification of a half cocked idea. You're better off keeping it as is.

    You could put a composting toilet in the bathroom.

    I'm all for open floor plans… but in these campers all of that cabinet space is there for more than just storage. its there for structural support. when you gut one you destroy the structural integrity of the entire camper

    I've ALWAYS wondered why RV manufacturers put a sink in the bathroom, especially when there is one within 4 steps away in the kitchen 🙂 I loved your tour. Your wetroom sink is quite something !!
