How does it work?

When you choose a do-it-yourself package from de Vantast, you will receive hundreds of individual parts that have been produced by Computerized Numerical Control (CNC). All accurately cut to the millimeter and provided with its own code. Every screw hole is pre-drilled. With this package you can build, sand and paint the furniture yourself in a colour of your choosing, right from your own house or shed. And because you do most of the work, the costs stay low.

 
 

 

 

Getting help at every step

Building your own camper takes a lot to consider. That’s why de Vantast – in addition to the wooden kit – also provides advice and manuals in the field of windows & solar panels, insulation, electricity, installation of equipment, upholstery and finishing. With our help you can go through these steps yourself or choose to outsource part of it to external parties. Look here for an overview of all steps.

 
 

 

 

500 days of experience as a full-time van lifer

de Vantast

De Vantast has lived, worked and travelled in a self-built campervan for over a year and a half. This experience has formed the inspiration for the development of self-built interiors. Due to his background as an architect, de Vantast translates interior designs with 3D software into an efficient and well-arranged building package with clear manuals, which everyone can use.

Start-up

The Vantast is still in the start-up phase. Our first DIY kit0 with which you can convert a van into a camper is the Vagebond and has already been successfully installed by many DIY builders. An interior specially developed for the Mercedes Sprinter / Volkswagen Crafter type L2H2. De Vantast has also developed an interior for the Fiat Ducato / Peugeot Boxer / Citroen Jumper type L3H2. This is the Flierefluiter, an interior with a fixed bed. This package has now also been successfully installed by the first guinea pigs.

A Vagebond package for the Fiat Ducato/Peugeot Boxer/Citroen Jumper type L3H2 is currently in development. After this, other types and formats will follow. So, follow us for any updates.

Vanlife

Many people dream of traveling in a campervan for a longer period of time, but a standard mobile home often does not meet their requirements, or it is simply too expensive. Converting a van into a campervan yourself is a good alternative, but not for everyone. Because how do you know that it will look good, everything functions properly, remains affordable and that the construction process will not take forever? That’s what de Vantast is for. We take these concerns away and leave the easy, fun work to you.
