Pick of the month August: The best DIY microcamper manual ever? Camping box + tent + mozzie nets…

| | | |

There’s a tasty treat in here for all you DIY enthusiasts out there! I’ve come across the best instruction manual for a DIY camping conversion I’ve seen so far. It’s for Renault Kangoo and Skoda Yeti, but it will only take a few adjustments to fit it into any MPV. If that wasn’t enough, I’ll throw in a very juicy Berlingo camping conversion too…

The best DIY microcamper manual ever!

It is called “Fat Berta” and you’ll love it. There are two versions:

How to sleep in Skoda Yeti?

There are videos, diagrams, drawings and plenty of pictures with detailed instructions – it really is the most detailed conversion I’ve seen so far (and I tried to be as detailed as possible in my Sharan camping conversion manual too…).

Big thanks to the author – “Dtextor“.

It doesn’t stop at a camping box/bed either – you’ll get more:

  • how to create a mosquito net for the tailgate from an old tent
  • + window mosquito nets
  • + thermal window screens
  • + privacy front screen
  • + back door (tailgate) spacer

No wonder it won so many competitions:

Berlingo 1 person camping conversion step by step

GB Camper Conversions will show you how to build a 1 person camper kit including a kitchen into your Berlingo.

What I like about the conversion:

  • simple enough for anyone with some DIY skills and standard tools to make
  • you can choose which bits you’ll use or leave out (not everyone needs a kitchen top – how about making it a 2 person bed instead)
