There are a lot of day vans out there built on the Volkswagen T5, which is an excellent base vehicle, but it's a pricey starting point.
The Vivaro is also an excellent vehicle, and this clean example presented an option to create a day van that wouldn't break the bank!
We're not hung up on the accepted "norm" in terms of layout and/or equipment levels, not everyone need an expensive fridge or hob when a cool box & camping stove will suffice, indeed, not everyone wants these things. We will build what you want.
So, a van which has what's needed, and the oportuniity to add more at a leter date as need and / or budget allows.......
This project turned out a great little van, warm, dry and comfortable with scope to add some of the more expensive items at a later date, .... IF they're required. Better to use it first and see what works.
