It always amazes me how creative folks who like car camping are – so many ways one can turn a standard car into a camper and sleep in it! Here are some of the best conversions in my opinion, that fit our simple car camping criteria.

Turn your Van/Bus into a Camper featuring VW Touran

By Mechanical Rhino – who is quite handy with all kinds of random DIY challenges

What I like especially:

  • simple enough – take the seats out, bring the rack in, put a mattress on it – and you’re done
  • the rack requires a good bit of DIY skills, but it’s still pretty minimalistic
  • clever tricks like the boot door safety lock to keep it ajar 🙂
  • removable camper conversion – it keeps the car as it is – no hardcore irreversible conversion (where your car is only a camper, not a 5 seater anymore)

These might come in handy...

...and you'll help keep this website going too - thanks! 🙂

The best budget car tent you can find:
ARPENAZ BASE M tent

Confirmed to fit: Sharan, Touran, Berlingo, Caddy, Partner, Kangoo, Combo

pressure solar camping shower 10 litres 600x600 1 - Best DIY small cars to campers conversion videos - micro camper conversion kits: Dec 2020

Pressure solar camping shower (pumped) – 10l
£49.99

This camping shower is easy to transfer and doesn’t need to hang in the air – it has a built-in pump that lets you pressurise the chamber and shower or use it in the sink anywhere. It’s black, so the longer you leave it in the sun, the warmer the water will be (or just leave it in a hot closed car in the summer).

  • Lightweight: 870 g including the bag
  • 10 litre capacity | On/off button on the handle to prevent waste
PORTABLE CHEMICAL TOILETS FOR CAMPING - 20L

4.2/5 stars

Ford Galaxy DIY Campervan Conversion kit

by Will’s Whereabouts – who really puts the #microcamper to the test!

What I like especially:

  • simple enough – use of standard wooden crates for storage under a simple enough rack (not taking into account the additional wiring & battery, that’s more advanced, but not a requirement)
  • the racks doubles up as a sofa too!
  • clever tricks like the down to earth but multi-functional window curtains from linen mesh

And here’s my one! I don’t have a video though… Just this shameless plug-in 😀

WV Sharan (5 seater) reversible microcamper:

Don’t like fiddling around with poles? This inflatable car tent might be the right choice for you. The sheet + poles make joining it to your car even more flexible.

  • Weight 13kg
  • Easy installation: Rapid pitching thanks to its all-in-one inflatable structure (requires a separate pump though)
  • The fabric filters UV rays with a UPF of 50+, Waterproof, good quality – tested in long rain and strong winds, it holds up pretty well (relatively to the price)
Inflatable luxury for 6 people (3 bedrooms)
+ 170cm opening for any tailgate

Fits MPVs, SUVs, Bedrooms:140x210 cm | Stand-up living room:7,1 sqm with zipped basin groundsheet
