Box Van Conversion
#1
Does anyone have a box van conversion ? I am in the process of working on one and would like to ask questions about how yours went.

I don't have a box van now, but I lived in one for6 years when I first started living in vans. Mine was 8 x 12 and had an amazing out of room!

Do you have plans for yours yet?

I did a 16’ box van conversion on my 379 Peterbilt. Full construction pictures are on the link below. Best of luck with your project!

I bought a 10' box van on Ebay January of 2014, made it liveable and have been living and traveling in it since the spring of that year. Love it. Ask away.

Will a box van limit back-road ability?

I bought a '97 E450 16' Grumman box van with an attic

I'm gathering insulation now. There are deals on Craigslist. Since most of
The sheets need to be cut it doesn't matter if a corner is gone or there's a crack.

I'm going to use two 2" layers for the ceiling and 2" or maybe at a 1" too fornthe walls. 1" foil covered for the floors

A box van sure is going to be more limited than a pair of good hiking boots are an ATV. Understand the clearance and traction issues and you'll be fine

I'd say no less limited than a pickup and camper unless the pickup is 4WD. The box on mine is just an inch wider than the widest part of the cab and about 9' high including the cover over the Fantastic fan.
