We bought this van 11 months ago and converted it into a beautiful home on-the-go, drawing lots of admirers from fellow campers as we traversed 20,000K through Australia. The van has been well maintained, both mechanically and in appearance, and is in good condition.

There is bright LED lighting throughout the van (low power usage) and solar lanterns (solar on the roof, on/off switch inside the van) so its very homely at night, a closable air vent on the roof to release warm air and stop condensation, insulated walls, a self-contained kitchen area, convertible bed/sofa, pop up side awning. the list goes on! Its a van you need to see in person to fully appreciate.

The modular design makes the most of the space available and you simply unscrew and slide out the storage unit behind the front seat to gain access to the engine.


*Convertible bed / sofa*
Perfect for day time use when its rainy or cold outside, or to escape the mosquitos. It takes just a few seconds to convert between the two and is very straightforward.

*Primus 18L 12V fridge/freezer that is capable of -18C*
A travel compressor fridge/freezer from a well-respected brand. Has a very low power draw and has saved us so much money by keeping food refrigerated and not having to buy messy ice. Its NOT like the cheap coolers which only chill and draw huge amounts of power from the battery. There is also the ability to run the fridge from the mains power.

*Pop up side awning*
This thing is a gem! Takes one minute to pop up, suctions onto the side of the van and all sides can be rolled up or rolled down. We use it for shade, privacy, warmth when its cold and also as a shower cubicle with the solar shower attached to the side of the van!

*Loads of storage space*
Long bedside cupboard for clothes/personal items, drawer for all cooking utensils, enormous under seating storage, various little cupboards youll have no issue keeping organised!

*Power points!*
12V USB plug socket that runs from the battery, so you can charge your electricals without mains power. There are also several plug sockets with two built in 2.4amp USB ports installed to quickly charge devices from mains power, via the outdoor caravan-style mains hook-up.
