Fun and Practical Add-Ons to Consider When Setting Up Your Van


Traveling in a van has become increasingly popular over the last few years. More people than ever are after that sense of freedom that having a van can give you, and there are so many people converting their vans themselves. This can be difficult, but gives you the choice to create whatever you like in your van space. Once the essentials are dealt with, here are some extras that can be incredibly helpful and fun for you to consider. 


This simple addition to a van can take your setup from basic to luxurious. This will give you some outdoor space that offers not only sun protection but also cover from the rain. With your limited living space inside the van, having the option to create more usable space outside will be much appreciated. 

Solar Panels

These can be expensive to install and you’ll need to have a good battery storage system to make the most of them, but these efforts will be worth it for the outcome. Solar panels on the roof will allow you to live off-grid much more easily, and you won’t have to worry about finding electrical outlets when parking up. 

Wood Burner

Another one that can be a little tricky and expensive to install, but well worth the investment. If you are doing it yourself, always make sure to carefully follow the requirements needed to install a fire. This charming addition to your van will help you keep warm in cold weather, and can also be used to cook meals on.
