Designed for all possible activities and adventures. Luck of windows on the sides makes it convenient city apartment but primary it was designed for traveling and adventure lifestyle. It has a huge amount of storage for your gear (it can even fit a full-size bicycle on the back in the trunk). You can be autonomous for several weeks (or till your next grocery shopping).
3 persons can travel/sleep in the van.
It’s basically a mini studio apartment where you have a 140 cm large bed. Second bed is the sofa which is about 63cm wide.
50cmx110cm openable desk and huge cooking area.
Van is designed for an option of making a passage to the front seats (in case they will be changed). It can be easily modified to carry surfboards inside of the van, so you don’t have any expensive gear exposed outside.
It took us around 2 months to complete this project and we can definitely say that it was a great experience for us.
IMPORTANT: We are not teaching how to do things, but only sharing what we’ve done.
Freshwater: 60 Liters under the sink (2x30L tanks with quick release connection). There is enough storage space to double up your water capacity.
Grey water: 60 Liters tank is installed under the van with easy discharge handle.
Hot water: the system is not installed on this model of the van.
Shower: integrated into the furniture on the entrance with 100% waterproof epoxy pain. Same space is used also for the toilet. By integrating shower and toilet you have a lot of free space in the van and it feels much bigger and more spacious. You can also use the shower hose straight outside of the van to wash your feet or rinse your gear from salt or dirt.
Heating: Eberspacher Airtronic D2 heater is installed onboard along with complete isolation of the van prior to build. Consuming from 100 to 280 ml of Diesel per hour.
Solar Panels: 2 x140W NDS solar panels with a digital manager with a possibility to charge up to 20AH.
Batteries: 2x100aH NDS Gel batteries
Battery management: You can fully control your batteries from NDS iManager onboard.
220V: 600 W inverter is onboard so you can charge all your gadgets and computers.
Fridge: 29 Liters Mobicool fridge which runs from 12V.
Water pump: Fiamma aqua 8
Kitchen stove and tap from Dometic MO 9722L and TAP AC 539
Trunk size: 140cm large x 200cm x 130 cm high approximately. The trunk is heated from the heating system.
Lights: 2 LED stripes and 5 led lamps to create a strong daylight (great for cooking or for work).
Safe box: attached to the van with 4 metal screws which are only removable from inside of the safe box. Gives you a piece of mind when you leave your van with your valuables.

Shoe cupboard: can fit up to 12 pairs of shoes.
Windows: only on the ceiling of the van. 1x 40x40cm with ventilator and 1 x 50x50cm above the bed.
WEIGHT: 3130 kg with 90 liters of water, full fuel tank and everything inside.
Car Model: Citroen Jumper L3H3 which is 599 cm long and about 225 cm high inside of the van. Why this model? Because Fiat Ducato, Citroen Jumper, and Peugeot Boxer are identical models and they are the largest vehicles compare to other brands, so you can place a bed the same as we did! Also, the interior is longer with same overall length, which means that you can fit more things!
