Whats a good van to buy for converting into perfect surfing/

Postby baskinglark » Fri Jun 16, 2017 8:09 pm

/ camper van? Hi I'm new and relatively new to surfing but I think I'd like to go on cheap surfing holidays in a converted van to sleep in after a days surf. Whats a god van to buy for this that isn't too expensive and thats reliable? Needs to be big enough to stand in preferably and for a table and a bed 8) . Not bothered too much about a sink or a cooker.

Ex ice cream vans are perfect for this and once you've finished surfing you can crack the cones out !

Merc Spinter or VW Crafter,the crafter doesn't hold the price like the T4/T5

Go for an Astro Van. I lived in one for 4 months. Loved that thing.
