FIRST VAN BUILD – KITCHEN
Maybe you’ve been following our journey since day one? If not perhaps we shall begin from the first van build kitchen we made in this video –
This kitchen was fully equiped with a sink, grey water tank, fresh water tank and a hand pump water system. We had a space for the ice box and some drawers for food. Was great! But it took up a lot of space within Vanhalen. We slept comfortably up in a Roof Top Tent however, when we spent 3 weeks in Langkawi, we slept inside our DIY tiny campervan instead. Have you seen the Langkawi Episode?
Langkawi was awesome, it taught us a lot about living in a tiny space and how to cope with Malaysian weather, surroundings, where to park safely at night, fears of break ins, where we can take our dogs to, it was great! Watch the video. We give a mini tour of our campervan set up too.
SECOND VAN BUILD – KITCHEN
After putting to test our first van build which we really didn’t like having to open and close our Roof Top Tent. We wanted to be able to move around quick and simple. Stealth in a car park overnight if we have to (which we did several times) SO we rebuilt Vanhalen to better suit our needs. This time, we did it ourselves.
We took our tiny campervan on the road soon after the second rebuild in order to test out our new layout!! This time, instead of staying within Malaysia – we ventured out into Thailand for a month!!
Thailand taught us a lot too!! Our interior worked for us well, it was very simple and fast to park, jump into the back and sleep with our Rock and Roll bed installation!! Have you watched that Rock and Roll bed Video?? Cheap and good solution you might want to follow 🙂
The only thing we lacked was proper ventilation for when we parked and slept inside our campervan. We will share that soon!! Our DIY ventilation fan is tried and tested and it works perfect at sucking out the hotair and pulling in exterior cool air!! 12 Volt low electricity draw – also a cheap and good solution!!
