How To Convert A Van To An Off-The-Grid Camper

A Guide To Converting A Van To An Off-The-Grid Camper In Just 17 Days


Converting an old van to a camper can be a very economical way to enjoy a more simplified, off-the-grid (OTG) lifestyle.

The meaning of the phrase “off-the-grid” can vary, depending on who you ask, but generally speaking it’s a lifestyle that allows people to live without a dependence on infrastructure.

A true off grid house or structure has the ability to operate completely independent of all of the traditionally use public utility services.

Public Utility Services include:

  • Electrical Power
  • Water Supply
  • Sewer
  • Natural Gas

Off-the-grid independence can be achieved by using alternative resources like solar power for electricity, and collecting rainwater for a water supply.
