(craigslist email appears to be broken) Do you need a Tiny Camper? A few years ago I set out to build the perfect tiny camper van for those that live in the city. I wanted everything I needed in a package that would fit in a city parking spot. Based on a 4wd Honda Element - and with a full double bed, shower, fridge, power, and everything you could possible want. Whilst still fitting in standard parking space. It's kind of like a modern Syncro Vanagon - or a mini Sprinter. It's modern mechanically, super reliable, gets great MPG, and fun to drive. Doesn't need chains when you go to Tahoe (4wd). It even has a leather steering wheel. Oh and a kettle. Very important that. I pretty much built everything I could think of, from 120 volt outlets, to a fridge freezer. It quite literally has the kitchen sink, and is the best thing I've ever built.

The Details

  • Chassis - Honda Element 4WD Chosen because of their bullet proof K series engines - (they go forever regularly 300 - 400k)
  • Upgraded suspension with Sumo Springs
  • Memory foam double bed with reading lights and shelves in a Magollina hard top fiber glass pop top.
  • 5 gallon Road Shower - solar heated pressurized aluminium tanked shower with hose and shower head
  • Thule Load Bar racks with Thule pads to take a long board / surf board underneath the Maggollina
  • Bomber Products Extruded Aluminium mounts
  • Eight Speaker audio with a Android Head unit - runs Spotify / Pandora whatever android apps you'd like
  • Always on hardwired front and rear dashcam - records 160' in-front and behind car (even when parked)
  • Digital rearview mirror with nightvision - see in the dark, much better visibility than a standard mirror
  • LED bulbs throughout
  • Upgraded fog / projector lights
  • 150 AH leisure battery to power inverter and fridge - charges from alternator and has a over-ride to start the car should the main car battery run flat
  • Dometic fridge / freezer
  • runs off of leisure battery (no need to run engine).
  • Stainless Steel Sink, running water etc
  • Aluminium Cook Partners custom gas stove

I set out to build the ultimate camper van. There are so many extras and I worked hard to use only the best components, has been very very well kept mechanically. She has so many fans, and now she's on the market. She can be yours! Price is firm, I don't need to sell and I'm happy to keep her.

Bad Stuff

The clear coat on the hood has some bubbles (small) pretty minor. Also has some minor scratches from living in a city.

Interested ?

I'm planning on showing her Sunday May 19th. Email if you'd like to come take a look. She has quite a few fans so I'm not expecting her to be on the market long. Thank you!
