Cargo Van Conversion Options

The various conversion options for a (cargo) van are greatly dependent on its planned use, the owners’ skills and financial resources. A very basic version can be put together by anyone that can handle a hammer and screwdriver and won’t set you back more than a couple of hundred dollars. On the opposite end, a fully equipped, handmade interior with most of the conveniences of home, a hi-top roof and a totally self-sufficient solar installation, easily tops $10,000.00.

Personal Choices

There is no cookie cutter solution and many options are a personal choice. The hi-top is a wonderful solution to create standing height in the van, but most people would loose their ability to park the van inside their 7′ garage. If you want to make a complete move to van dwelling, choose the first option, for part-time use you may opt for the latter.

Download The RV Electrical System Sizing Spreadsheet

Sizing solar always starts with establishing demand. This is partly an exact science (add amps from appliances), partly guesswork (how often do you use lights, heater, etc.). This spreadsheet includes a calculation of the number of solar panels and batteries for your RV.
