Girl Traveling Full Time In Self Converted Renault Kangoo
by Marina Piro
Hi fellow mini camperists!
A couple of months ago I've decided to give up my job and my home in North of England to travel with my dog Odie.
I decided to purchase a small van for a couple of reasons:-less noticeable. As a girl traveling alone, I try my best to not be noticed especially in urban areas.
-Less material needed for the conversion.
-Easier to park (yes I'm a woman and I suck at parking).
Also, it can access parkings where height restrictions are in place. The conversion took 3/4 months to complete.
The van has:
-Insulation, ply lining and has been carpeted;
-A 110ah second battery connected by split charge relay system (DURITE);
-A set of IKEA LED Diorite lights (12v connected directly to the battery);
-A 400w inverter with plugs for AC current;
-A shelf over the driving compartment for extra storage;
-A 1.70cm long bed with storage underneath;
-2 gas hobs and kitchen storage;
-Curtains for privacy.
I have step by step guides on my blog on how to do the conversion (I'm still in the process of writing everything up!). I would love for women to feel like it's feasible to convert your own van without having someone else doing it for you.
I enjoy traveling in Pamthevan more that I can put it into words and cannot wait to share our upcoming adventures!
