[Parking in the car]The longing for van life! ~DIY "Bongo Brawny Van" into a car travel style~(Part 2)

Storage space under the bed

A commercially available wooden storage box, which is the same as the chair, is used under the bed, and it is used as a storage space.

There are conditioning utensils, tableware, toilet utensils, etc.

The two boxes are connected by a beam, so that the two boxes can be pulled out at the same time without wasting the innermost space.

Because the storage box will slide out when the vehicle is traveling, a cross bar is made at the foot of the bed to prevent the box from sliding.

It can be easily disassembled by simply picking up the crossbar.

Afterwards, the case can be pulled out without hindrance, which is satisfactory in terms of usability and appearance.

With the trunk door open, things can be stowed under the bed from the rear.

Items stored here must be opened and closed in the rear compartment door before they can be taken out or put in. It mainly stores folding tables, chairs, cassette gas stoves and refrigerators that will be used outdoors.

Install curtains in four places

In order to block sunlight and protect privacy, curtains are set in four places.

Install rails on the rear door and rear door, and clamp the curtains with clips.

The picture above shows the space between the front and rear seats in the car. Here, lock hardware on both sides of the ceiling, pull hemp rope, and install curtains.

At first, I wanted to install curtain rails and/or retractable rods, but after careful observation of the ceiling, I found that it is curved, and it is not easy to install the rails. In addition, the telescopic rods are easy to fall, and no suitable products were found. Later, I decided to use hemp. rope.

Using hemp rope not only matches the interior of the car, but also creates a natural style.

Create a rest space just behind the passenger seat where you can lay a cushion and sit down

The space directly behind the passenger seat is covered with a simple cushion. The seat cushion is made by cutting a commercially available cushion and wrapping it with cloth. You can sit here when you are tired.

As long as the folding table stored under the bed is taken out, one person can sit in the area with the seat cushions, and the other person can sit in the area with the benches and eat together.

The inside of the tailgate is also decorated with wood panels

Because it is a medieval car, when I started this car, there were already many scars on the inside. So here it is decorated with wooden boards.

This also brings a sense of naturalness, which is also a feature that car owners love.

"Holiday van life" that enriches the holidays

After the interior of the DIY station wagon is made into a car travel style, the number of holiday trips has also increased. Even if the departure time is late or you are going to a distant place, you will not be too worried.

Now I feel that "I can go out more easily and casually" and "I have a more fulfilling holiday" than before. In addition, the most important thing is to be able to meet many camping enthusiasts and car travel enthusiasts, and the number of partners has gradually increased.

In the future, I will also do some DIY slowly. I also hope that the opportunity to enjoy leisure time "workcation" while working will increase!

I hope this article can help people who want to try DIY, start car travel life, and camp.
