Hiace Commuter Converted Camper
to my misfortune I need sell the love my Life - my Van. I only got it 12 months ago and it took me 3 months of working on it every single weekend to convert it to the ultimate Surf / Photographer / Family Approved Adventure Wagon!
I am selling it because we are unexpectedly moving back to Germany. When we bought the van we wanted to get a van that we could use for several years, hence I invested in decent quality materials and detailed work that would cope with our longterm plans for it. Here are all main features:
116.700 KM → The Hiace petrol engines are known to run for 500-700 k km and Diesel 800 . That's why you see all tradies and government cars using this model. The car is no rsut whatsoever and is in fantastic conditions.
Hiace Commuter 2.7 December 2006
Scandinavian Cabin Design: I care a lot about the feeling of space and design and you will notice that there is a certain feeling of peace or simply comfort as soon as you enter this little cabin. In addition the van is insulated with two layers of reflectix foam → this is crucial in winter!
Close to Queensize Bed (143 * 203 cm) with Highend Memory Foam 15 cm thick made for frequent use. This size is perfect for a couple ( Baby) Covers were custom made and are fully removable and washable. The fabric is water resistant -> Ideal in case you want to put in surfboards in that still might have a couple of drops on them.
Work from Van: The bed has a little square which you can take out to sit comfortable and work on your laptop
Offgrid Solar System Electricity to power long trips: This part was where I invested infinte research and wanted to ensure an electrical system that would be powerfull enough to load all of my camera gear (which is a lot) 42 liter Fridge Lights Laptops Phones etc. Specifics: 200 Watt solar MTTP 40 amp 2 * 130 amp deep cycle batteries connected at 12v 350Watt Converter 3 USB Plug ins 5 High voltage Plug ins and wiring was done by a sparky! I didnt want to risk my 1yo boy to get electrocuted.
Kitchen: Electrical Waterpump with a 20 liter Tank, with easy swap compartment. Camping Cooker included in heavy duty drawer, that also functions as a pull out table. Fridge has a 41 Liter capacity - which is enough for 3 people for a week! Easy access Storage for Food and my favourite Item: A fruit Hammock
Family Features: The Backseat has a tether option to put in your babyseat - the bed is big enough for baby couple. The little sink was beyond essential for any trip with bubba. The Windows are tinted and absorb 95% of UV light
Shade: 2,5m Awnings
There is one big row of an overhead compartment that is massive but not to evasive in the design - perfect for cloths.
2 Heavy Duty Drawers (withstand 150kg) - Ideal for valuables and frequent access such as camera equipment or cooking.
Side Shelf: 3 compartments - of which one has the plugs for charging Phones & laptops
Under the Bed I keep a little rubber tub to throw in my wetsuit in addition it fits a camping table and 2 chairs.
You will notice that the van has a rhino rack and a long rhino basket - this is great if you want to go on long trips an still have the flexibility to use the bed anytime to chill or to throw a super tyred baby on it.
PRICE: I got the van for 23.5k from a dealership and invested 7k of materials 180 hours of labour. Therefore I am considering any offers arround 34k since I have no Idea how much I should charge for my 180 hours of work.
Rego Good until May 25 2019
The Van has AC but the gas needs to be replaced - I got a quote for 150$ for someone taht would repair it.
