One of the latest trends that have been popping up around the world is the “glamper camper”. A beautifully designed and built campervan made into often times an old van or bus. Chucking a bed in a van has been around since at least the 60’s when surfers and hippies made the Volkswagen Kombi van as iconic as the Beatles, but these new designs have taken them to the next level. Here at PlacesYoullSee we decided to make a list of our favourite 7.
#1 Mercedes Sprinter by Daniel B
Decked out in white with a sideways bed and a little kitchen Daniel has made an absolute masterpiece. See more pictures on his instagram.
#2. More Bedroom Than Van
We loved how much this van looked like a bedroom compared to a van with a bed in it. The use of wood on the floor and ceiling gives this camper a touch of class that you rarely see. Little touches like a bookshelf show just how much planning went into the design and building on this campervan. Read about the conversion here.
#3 The Top And Bottom Split
This van takes a different approach to give you a lot more storage room. By splitting the van into 2 levels the entire bottom half of the van can be used for storing anything large (think mountain bikes, canoes etc). The upper level has a large bed and classy wooden roof.

#4 Wall To Wall Wood In A Ford Transit
The more wood the better! This beautiful design fits out a Ford Transit with a luxurious interior. To see some build photos, click here.
#5 Drop Down Table And Beds
This van made our list due to how well they have taken advantage of limited space. Much smaller than a lot of the other vans used here the use of fold down beds and a hanging table allows for a great use of available space.
#6. Simple And Stylish
This simple and elegant design has couches that can be converted into beds by removing the back cushions. To see the build click here.
#7 Window Addons To Enjoy The Great Views
This build has had window flaps cut into their Mercedes Sprinter so you can enjoy the amazing views you see as your travel. If you’d like to build something like this you can read all about it here.
