Fiat Ducato Live-in Motorhome Conversion

For years Rus & Cal thought about making the life changing move out of their house and into a van…

Rus & Cal had big plans to buy a van and travel around Europe with their two dogs, Cookie & Hooch. We were so happy to be able to help them towards this goal and work with them to build a cosy rustic home-on-wheels.

They wanted their van to:

  • Be homey and rustic with solid timber furniture
  • Provide a safe and comfy home for their two dogs
  • Enable them to be self-sufficient when travelling in the UK & abroad, providing ample power, water and giving them their own cooking facilities and toilet/washroom
  • Have plenty of built in storage for all their belongings as the van would be their full-time home
