Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Vehicle To Convert to a Motorhome

When it comes to converting vehicles into motorhomes, the possibilities are vast and diverse, offering a range of options to suit different preferences and requirements.

One of the most popular choices is the van conversion, which includes various types of vans such as cargo vans, panel vans, and camper vans. These vehicles are favoured for their compact size, making them easy to manoeuvre on the road while still providing enough space for comfortable living quarters.

There is the option of purchasing a fully converted motorhome that requires very little effort or commitment, however you are limited to the design and features that come as a standard package.

On the flipside customised van conversions offers flexibility in layout and design, allowing owners to customise the interior to their specific needs, whether it’s adding a kitchenette, bathroom, sleeping area, study, lounge, off-grid system, or a large myriad of storage solutions.

For those seeking more spacious accommodations, buses, and trucks present excellent opportunities for conversion. School buses in particular, have gained popularity in recent years for their roomy interiors and sturdy construction.

Converting a bus allows for expansive living spaces, with the potential to include amenities such as multiple bedrooms, a full kitchen, large bathrooms, and even a living room area or a spa. Similarly, trucks offer ample space for customization, making them ideal for adventurers who prioritise functionality and versatility in their motorhome design.

In addition to conventional vehicles, specialty vehicles like ambulances, box trucks, and even trailers can be transformed into unique motorhomes. Ambulance conversions, for example, often feature built-in cabinets and storage compartments, as well as existing electrical systems that can be repurposed for RV use.

Box trucks provide a blank canvas for creativity, with their wide, open interiors allowing for endless possibilities in layout and design. Trailers, on the other hand, offer the advantage of being detachable, allowing owners to use their vehicle separately from their living quarters.

Overall layout and inclusions is a critical factor in choosing a vehicle for conversion to motorhome. Toilets and showers generally require a larger vehicle particularly if they are required internally to the vehicle.
