Conversion StoryIndie started life as a panel van used to transport light goods and over the period of two months was converted into the camper she is today. Designed by their owners and built by a boat builder, wood was the primary theme. To get the log cabin effect they white washed the walls and used a black stain on the floor. The wooden log burner was safely installed with protective surrounds. Rusted Aluminium surrounds the fire completing the rustic feel to the van. We scoured ebay and found a three point seat belt ambulance seat for the extra seat in the back.
