Our 3D renderings

3D renderings are one way to go about planning your van lay-out. A good doodle on a piece of paper works just as well obviously but we wanted to really visualize our van as much as possible.

I initially had the intention to use Sketchup and be a grown-up but I also didn’t want to pay for it. So I tried their free version and I don’t think I am very good at it. I felt it was not as user-friendly as I had hoped for. So I ended up doing a mock-up on Planner 5D. It’s not the greatest online software known to men, the options are very limited and the furniture/doors/wall you can use are not enough. But it totally did the work for what we wanted and I can now present you with our 3D renderings !

The objective is to build the following elements inside the van :

  • 1 window
  • 1 fan
  • 1 queen size bed
  • 1 50L fridge (under the seating area)
  • 2 long cabinets + inside dividers
  • 1 seating area + 1 table
  • 1 hammock chair you can’t see here
  • 1 kitchen area with a sink and counter space
  • 2 x 100 watts solar panel – 1 x 200 ampH battery – 1 x 1000w inverter and 1 MPPT Charge Controller

This list will probably extend as time passes by but that’s where we stand today.

Hopefully the 3D plan will give you a better idea of where we are going :). Coming next week are the detailed articles about the window, the roof vent and the flooring.

Love, Coco

  1. My Irish friend Patrick, and his family, are doing a van conversion. He loves his music, so they have put in speakers, new headliner, and lots of sound/weather proofing, too.

    Good luck with your project!
