With these inspiring van conversions, their owners have made their dreams come true. We'll show you the top conversions of our Facebook contest and why they are so convincing.

1. Mobile home with feel-good character.

In this lovingly decorated Mercedes-Benz 508 D you can really feel at home. The cozy motorhome with its colorful accessories and many cushions convinced us with its irresistible charm. Kyle and Shannon have everything you need for a simple life: a small gas cooker on the built-in kitchenette, a sink, enough storage space for food and clothes. In addition, the bed integrated into the living room can also be used as a sofa. Kyle and Shannon quit their jobs to dive into an adventure. Together they are traveling through southern Africa and want to live their new life as minimally as possible. They document their journey on their blog.

You can see the inside of the van with a view of the kitchenette and many small furnishing details.

2. Creative van with artistic details.

With high-quality wood finish and creative design eye-catchers, Joe and Emilie have created a special kind of van conversion. The wood paneling in the interior of the vehicle creates a rustic and cozy ambience. In addition, the lights mounted on the ceiling radiate warmth. The illustration engraved into the wood is particularly creative, giving the interior of the van an artistic touch.

The kitchen system is so well designed that the stove can be placed on a fold-out table outside the van.

3. Cottage to-go.

Benedict calls his masterpiece “Fuchsbau”. As an architect, he has built a well-planned tiny wooden house. It is perfectly adapted to the dimensions of the Mercedes-Benz 308 D, but can also be used alone. In the cleverly furnished 8 m2 interior, there is enough space for two people who can live in it for a longer period of time without any problems. Up to six people can sit at the generous table. If required, the seating area can even be transformed into a guest bed so that up to four people can sleep in it. As a specialist for energy-efficient houses, he took special care with his conversion project to use materials that minimize energy loss. It also uses solar energy to supply the campervan with electricity. All in all, a practical, well thought-out project!

4. Retro charm with multi-functional table.

Paco Arenas from Málaga, Spain has managed to transform his Mercedes-Benz N 1300 into a multifunctional campervan with retro charm by simple means. The table can be easily converted into a bed in just a few easy steps. The van is perfect for a relaxing trip by the sea. On the beach, Paco can sunbathe, enjoy the sea breeze and fall asleep in the evening in his cozy van to the sound of the sea.

5. Create lots of storage with little space.

In just 10 days Phil has made the perfect camper for traveling. Despite the limited room in the Vito, he used the space efficiently and built his own wooden shelves. We particularly liked the creative idea for the wardrobe. For this he stretched bungee cords, which he only has to push to the side to get to his clothes. However, they don’t fall off the shelf while driving.

A creative idea for a wardrobe: Phil has simply put bungee cords in front of the shelf so that the clothes are stowed away and don't fall out while driving.

6. Rustic and cozy.

Jeremy’s van conversion is particularly pleasing with the interior paneling made of light wood. The comfortably converted Sprinter radiates warmth and coziness. The musical instruments on the walls are not only well positioned but they also give the van a personal touch. We also liked the skateboard decks, which are used as artwork on the wall.  At the age of 21, Jeremy decided to buy a Sprinter and build a life without paying rent.

In sunny weather, Jeremy prefers to spend time outdoors.

The best place to live is directly by the sea. Jeremy can park his van anywhere, so he doesn't have to live in the same place all the time.

Regardless of what job you have to tackle – the Sprinter will make your day-to-day tasks easier. And even if those tasks are weighty ones, together, you’ll move mountains. Thanks to a host of different variants and over 600 optional features, the Sprinter can meet a wide variety of requirements.
