The better camping sites are often located at places which are not easily accessible by normal vehicles. Thus a campervan with off-road capability is an attractive proposition, it provide the comfort of home and the mobility to explore the great outdoor. Ideally, the base vehicle should be medium size van with 4wd chassis. There are no shortage of 4wd vehicles in Malaysia, but most are of the wagon body type, which do not have the internal space required for cameprvan conversion.
|A fine example of VW T3 Syncro camper conversion|
Around the world, the VW T3 Syncro has been a popular base for such conversion due to its combination internal space and off-road capabilities. However the scarcity of T3 Syncro in Malaysia make it diificult for such concept to be realised here. The van that is closest to such criteria here is the Mitsubishi L300 4wd variant, besides being more common in Malaysia, it is also somewhat cheaper to maintain than the VW T3 Syncro. Below is an example of how the L300 4WD van can be turned into a campervan with some simple interior modification. The diagrams are self-explanatory.
