Who’s Cooper the Van?

Cooper is a retrofitted Mercedes Sprinter 316. We initially purchased him as an empty cargo van and customised him over the course of six months. 

The Cockpit

On the entrance of the van is the cockpit. Moreover the motive force and passenger seats, we even have an intuitive dashboard system that tells us all the small print about Cooper. It additionally has CarPlay, so we are able to play our favorite highway journey tunes.

Hunter’s “Room”

Proper behind the cockpit is Hunter’s little space. We put in a baby’s seat and made positive there was ample house on the ground for her to play. We preserve her books and toys in containers that we are able to simply retailer after they’re not in use.

The Residing Room/Eating Room/Workplace

We knew we had restricted house to work with when constructing our van. That is why we added a swivel desk. It may be used as a eating room desk, or it may swivel round in direction of our bench for use as a desk. On prime of that, we are able to transfer it in direction of the kitchen if we’d like additional prep or counter house whereas cooking.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is considered one of our favourite areas within the van. We’ve got an extra-large sink, a 2-burner induction cooktop, and a mini fridge. The additional storage beneath the cooktop holds all our cookware. We additionally put in a slide-out pantry the place we are able to preserve spices and different little snacks!

The Bed room

An excellent night time’s sleep is essential, so we opted for a set mattress as an alternative of a convertible one. We additionally added a small child-size mattress for Hunter, which she will use when she’s sufficiently old to sleep with no crib. At night time, we grasp magnetized window shields to dam out gentle and provides us privateness.

Storage

Most of our clothes is saved above the kitchen and dwelling space. We additionally constructed a number of different storage cubbies above the mattress and cockpit to maintain different knick-knacks. Beneath the mattress (accessed within the again), we now have our “storage”. That is the place we retailer larger objects, electrical tools, and extra clothes.

The Toilet

We made the aware resolution to construct Cooper with no rest room. Nonetheless, we at all times journey to locations with public loos, so it has by no means been an issue! And if we have to bathe, we now have an outside bathe with each cold and hot water.
