Converting VW Caddy Maxi for LESS THAN £300! - Micro Caddy Camper Self Build!



Here is a video of my VW Caddy Maxi van conversion. In this video I go through the stages of insulating the van, ply lining the van and building a pull out bed. I bought a 2015 ex British gas VW caddy maxi and converted it into a weekend get away camper. I spent a while researching the best methods for the conversion and thought I'd share my process to help others. If you want to convert a van on a budget then this is the video for you. In total I only spent around £300 for the conversion.


This video is a combination of 3 separate videos all combined together.


I didn't film the whole conversion so this video only shows sections of our build.


0:00 - Intro.

0:12 - Insulation and Cleaning.

1:57 - Insulating the ceiling.

3:00 - Cab curtain and interior extras.

4:00 - Flooring.

4:47 - Fitting the ply lining.

7:30 - Slide out double bed build.
