Convert Your Van Ltd – Medium Van Layout Guide

Below is a brief guide to choosing/designing your campervan/motorhome layout, there are example layouts as well as hints and tips on how to decide what you want if there isn’t a layout listed here that is right for you. For example layouts for larger camper vans/motorhomes/race vans check the other layout guide pages on our site.

When deciding on a layout it is good practice to look at what has been done before, go to motorhome shows or large dealers where you can have a browse around. Bear in mind that what might look great in a photo (or layout diagram), might not be ideal for everyone in practice, so to go and have a look inside and a walk round existing motorhomes can give you a better idea of what you can expect to fit in a given sized van.

The next thing to consider is that when it comes to a camper van interior, everything is always a compromise, the ideal would be a coach sized motorhome to fit everything in that you want, but that would fit in a car parking space at the local supermarket, and that obviously isn’t possible! So it comes down to compromise. Decide what you need in your camper, what you’d like in your camper, and what you could do without. For example, how many secondhand motorhomes/campervans/caravans do you see where the shower has never been used? Do you need one? Some people will, some people won’t.

If you already have your van, once you have a layout in mind it is a good idea to try it in the van, this can be done by drawing it on the floor or marking it with tape, you can then get an idea of what space will be left, what gaps you’ll have to walk through, etc. And don’t forget the wheel arches! Arches can often get in the way of fridges, toilets, etc, so try to bare them in mind when planning your layout.

Below you will find some example layouts with approximate prices for furniture and cushions (prices are a guide and can vary either way depending on van model and finer details – please see prices page for more details). The diagrams are intended as a guide, you could possibly combine your favourite parts of more than one layout to come up with something that is right for you. If there is nothing that seems ideal, you can always email us with your own unique layout and we can give you a quote based on that, all we need is a detailed description or better still a diagram and we can give you an accurate quote.

Please note: Prices shown are intended as a guide and are for furniture and cushions only, they don’t include any appliances, lining, windows, etc

Medium Vans with High Roof
(eg Vauxhall Vivaro LWB High Roof, VW T5 High Roof)

The following layouts are based on a Vauxhall Vivaro LWB High Roof van, this size van tends to fit right in between the small vans and the larger motorhome type vans, so the layout can either be side conversion but with quite a lot of open space, or you can squeeze in a toilet cubicle and have a compact two berth motorhome type layout.

The side conversion with overhead cupboards starts at £1995 fitted or £1595 supply only. The L-Shape / Side facing settee layouts start at £2445 fitted. See Prices page for further details.

Smaller Vans with High Roof – Compact 4 berth layout
(eg SWB / Med Roof Transit, SWB High Roof Vauxhall Movano/Renault Master)

The following layout is based on an SWB Medium Roof Transit, with the use of rear bunk beds this provides a very compact 4 berth motorhome/camper van that could quite easily be used as everyday transport, yet still provides practical space for holidays away with good sized toilet cubicle and lots of storage space. (please note that this model transit only provides around 5′ 9″ of standing height and not quite a full 6′ bed across the van unless you remove some sections of the ply lining)

This conversion would be approx £3295 fitted or £2145 supply only. See Prices page for further details.
