Just a couple of months a

Just a couple of months ago this van was sat in the back yard at my workplace. Off the road and ready for the scrap yard. A week later after asking whether we could buy the van it went up for auction and we won. It may be a little battered and bruised but this van has made it over 2700 miles on our Italian road trip going as far as Rome. With it's previous reputation of always breaking down and needing repairs we're so pleased it's made the journey with only one hiccup and saved this van from being scrapped! #Vw #vwt4 #t4 #projectvanlife #campervan #vanlifeexplorers #vanliving #vandwelling #vanlife #vanlifers #lifeonwheels #homeiswhereyouparkit #adventuremobile #homeonwheels #camperconversion #vanconversion #selfbuildvan #diyvan #vanlifeideas #vanlifediaries #vanlifemovement #vanlifemagazine #nomadstays #vwt4camper #projectvanlife #exploremore #funontheroad #vandwellinglife #adventure #travel

I can definitely recommend visit in this place called "Pakasaivo - lapland hell". No one has ever reached this lake bottom, even with diving equipment, the journey ends always at 90 meter. So beautiful and awe-inspiring place! #Caravan #finlandtour #finnishtour #finland #suomi100 #finland100 #tour #campervan #sofun #beautiful #place #aweinspiring #pakasaivo #lapinhelvetti #helloflapland #beauty #Muonio #lake #Suomi #belgianshepherd #belgianpaimenkoira #tervueren #groenendael #belggareidenhiekkalaatikko #ilovemybelgianshepherd

It is super hot today. We went to the local market this morning to stock up on fruit and veggies and are now enjoying them and a banana smoothie in our slightly cooler than outside van. We have a solar panel on the roof and use a sine wave inverter to convert our energy to use the 240v appliances we have with us (including the blender). When it's sunny we also run our fridge off the inverter but if it's slightly over cast and over night we run it from 12v. Although our panel is 250w and we have two leasure batteries we find our fridge uses an insane amount of power and our batteries drain really really fast when the sun isn't fully out. At first we thought this was a battery fault but by process of elimination we've had to put it down to the fridge and don't really know how to rectify the problem without buying a new one. #solar #solarpanel #smoothie #freshfruit #eatclean #vanlife #vanlifers #camperlifestyle #project #projectvan #projectvanlife #nomadstays #nomad #ontheroad #europetravels #mk2 #fordtransit #camper #vanconversion #homeiswhereyouparkit #ontheroad #campervan #travel #interior #vaninterior #showusyourvan #vancrush #vanlifestyle #selfbuild #diy

Perfect little camp spot

Perfect little camp spot right next to a waterhole filled with frogs ! The eucalyptus tree we are parked beneath has such a nice smell! They are beautiful trees with many uses. Unfortunately, the tree also uses a lot of water draining the soil around it, making it impossible for other plants to survive ... Eucalyptus trees are invasive in Portugal, they come from Australia, and are not good for biodiversity in this country. So eventhough I love them, I rather not see them around #eucalyptustree #Portugal #t4 #volkswagencamper #westfalia #campervan #roadtrip #digitalnomad #femaletraveler #campingwithdogs #podencosofig #instapodenco #hikingdog #vanlifedogs #vanlife #vandweller #mydogismy #ilovemyadventuredog #vanlifediaries #homeiswhereyouparkit #projectvanlife #hikingdog #hikingwithdogs #adoptdontshop #wanderlust #vanlifers #eqdog #t4california #homeiswherethedogis #poptop

An extract on #campervan

The term motorhome is sometimes used interchangeably with campervan, but the former can also be a larger vehicle than a campervan and intended to be more comfortable, whilst the latter is more concerned with ease of movement and lower cost. For example, some campervans lack built-in toilets and showers, or a divide between the living compartment and the cab. The United States term "recreational vehicle" (RV) is more analogous to motorhome than campervan.

Campervans may be equipped either with a "pop-up" roof which is raised during camping or a fixed roof, either shared with the commercial van that forms the basis of the vehicle (commonly a "high-top" model), or as part of a custom coachbuilt body. Campervans usually have a small kitchen with a refrigerator (which is often powerable by a choice of gas, battery, or mains electricity) and a two-burner gas hob and grill. They generally have dual-voltage lighting which can work from either a dedicated battery (other than the van battery) known as a deep-cycle or leisure battery, or from AC power, supplied at a campsite via a hook-up cable. Larger models may include a water heater, space heating and air conditioning, a portable toilet and even an internal shower. Smaller models often carry a "porta-potty" portable toilet, and sometimes an external shower which operates within the privacy of an awning. The term "Dormobile" is sometimes used generically in the United Kingdom thanks to a once highly popular conversion brand, and "Kombi" is used in Australia and other countries. The popularity of this type expanded in the 1950s after Volkswagen commissioned the Westfalia company to use the Kombi version of their Type 2 transporter as the basis for a campervan.

Often called a 4WD camper or 4x4 camper, these vehicles are perfect for going off the beaten track and exploring unsealed roads. Some models include expandable tents mounted on the roof while others have pop-up roofs for additional sleeping space and storage. Pop-up roof variants share certain design elements with roof tents as sometimes fitted to more robust four wheel drive off-road vehicles intended for expeditions rather than relaxed camping. A compromise between these two worlds is sometimes reached by basing the conversion on an off-road vehicle. Sometimes the conversion is demountable from the back of a pick-up truck body.

There are several types of campervan all manufactured by Volkswagen but depending on their age they are colloquially referred to as either a splitty (split windscreen) a bay (bay framed windscreen) or a bricky ("brick" shaped van). Although less popular, Mercedes also manufactured a similar-sized light van and conversions were reasonably common in the 1960s and '70s. Of a similar size and vintage is the British Commer Spacevan conversion. In Europe the Citron H-Van has also been used a base for many campervan conversions, and is popular amongst Dutch and Belgian users in particular. Ex-factory, it had several height and length configurations, and in all versions it had a low floor and high ceiling, a legacy of one of its original uses as a mobile shop. It does not usually need a pop-top to accommodate its users. Modern mid-sized Japanese vans such as the Toyota Hiace are sometimes converted to have the appearance of a classic Volkswagen.
