Self built campervans
The container van is considered a subcategory of campervans and are considered as a true trendsetter. The base vehicle is a delivery van or pickup van, which has been converted into a mobile home together with its chassis, engine and body. It is larger and longer than a campervan and often contains a full-sized bathroom. Popular models are the Fiat Ducato, the Citroën Jumper, the Peugeot Boxter, the Mercedes Sprinter or, more recently, the VW Crafter.

The history of the campervan
The campervan is considered the archetype of the caravan and has developed into a cult vehicle since the 50s with its famous representative, the VW Bulli. From 1967 onwards, especially the VW T2 and VW T3 stood for adventure and independence and served sportsmen, hippies or families for long journeys over generations. The VW bus even experienced several film appearances like in Mythbusters or Little Miss Sunshine. These models were designed as small buses, container vans or platform trucks.
Meanwhile, the competition grew, including the Caravano from Hymer, and from the 1980s onwards, more and more container vans were developed for residential purposes. These offered more driving comfort and were more economical in consumption than motorhomes. In the meantime, modern campervans usually have a fixed high roof or a pop-up roof. This makes it possible to stand in the vehicle or to add two more sleeping spots.
