Van Tour: Converting a '94 Campervan

Transforming our Toyota HiAce into a home-on-wheels

The concept

In 2019 we set about converting an old Toyota van into a home, office and overlanding adventure vehicle. It seemed only right that we capture the crazy conversion journey on film.

The process

Broaden created this video across a 12 month period:

  • Van build: The majority of this video was filmed incidentally. With camera phone in hand, we captured the crazy moments cutting, building and problem-solving along the way.
  • Van tour: After completing the van, we parked up in France and filmed a full van tour, explaining each of the design details and lessons learned along the way.
  • Edit: The footage is woven together with a soundtrack and motion graphics which pull out important facts and figures.
The outcome

Since sharing the Van Build Tour video to YouTube, it has amassed over 14,000 views and served as the inspiration for other keen van builders. The finished result is a 20 minute video which covers every aspect of the vehicle: from engine to cab, solar system to built-in furniture.

“Really fascinating and really beautifully put together. Such an interesting ergonomic challenge and you guys did an amazing job of making it wildly functional.”
