Looking good! I’m planning to do something similar with the back of mine, allthough I’m going to keep one side clear for bikes.

Keen to see what you come up with

Just in case anyone was wondering the plywood is only as a base materiel I am planning to cover it with carpet or timber later on in the build

Nice work! Love a good conversion! It’s a longer term project for me, but great to see people tackle it. Countertop idea looks spot on!

Installed the countertop and hob sink unit now working on the sides of the unit. Photos to follow. Very pleased with the countertop in cherry and elm

Installed the rear door inside handle. For some reason they sent me 3 pull bars and no bolts. Major push on with it tomorrow

wow, that's lovely. I wish I was handy with woodwork and stuff.

My caddy is the window van version. It also has a wheelchair adaption ramp, half of which has been taken out. So a lot of extra space, for a conversion to camper - but no spare tyre carrier!
