The van:

Small and compact converted vehicle. It measures around 5m in length but does not exceed 2m in height. It is therefore considered a Category 1 vehicle (like a normal car).

When you’re told about a converted van, you immediately think about a colorful and vintage T2 combi? Thinking about the feeling of freedom to be able to travel everywhere? Today, the little brothers of Combi T2 offer a real comfort. Both in terms of driving and daily life on board.

The van:

A model of a converted vehicle that is larger than a van (around 6 m in length). A converted van is a utility vehicle that has been designed to make it habitable. It therefore has more storage space than a van but it is also more cumbersome. You can usually stand in vans (it is more than 2m high). The main difference between a van and a converted van is that it has a toilet and a shower. It will be more comfortable than a converted van if you are going for a long time or if you are looking for more comfort.

It’s a recreational vehicle. The difference between a camper van and a converted van is that it is built from a utility chassis to which the living cell has been grafted. While for the vans, the utility body was kept by installing the interior. The motorhome is the largest and most imposing vehicle: it is about 7m long. It offers the most comfort. There are toilets and an indoor shower as well as more sleeping.
