Kenneth The Kangoo Camper
Following the unfortunate incident where the original Kangoo Camper got written off (an old lady smashed into the side of it on a dual carriageway. Nobody was hurt but the van was destroyed) I was left with nothing more than a smashed up van and an insurance claim. The Kangoo had been sold and was due to be collected that week. Needless to say, this was a rather upsetting month, especially having just done over 5000 epic miles around Portugal!
On the bright side though, I located a shiney new Kangoo in Scotland with only 30k Miles on the clock and the lady who was having the original van was more than happy for me to build her a new, better version!
Affectionately named Kenneth, after the gentleman who had owned this van from new, the build commenced.
Here’s what I created from an empty Kangoo van…
Kenneth is a 2007 Kangoo dCi 70 in metallic silver. I fitted a Kangoo car window in the side door.
Kenneth’s interior looked stunning…
Fitted with Gaslow refillable LPG. Filler connector on the outside of the van.
Below the sofa, slides out the cassette toilet.
Fitted to the back door is the LPG instant hot shower. Shower head is positioned outside using a suction mount shower head holder.
Below the floor, hides a 12V cooler compartment.
Hand made curtains, stunning LED lighting and amazingly comfy seats.
The awesome little kitchen. Tiled to give a homely feel. Two burner Smev hob and running water sink.
Fully closing cab curtains providing complete privacy and allowing the cab area to increase the living space.
A comfortable and smart little home from home…
The comfy sofa extends width wise to sleep two people. The length of the bed when made up is just over six feet.
150 Watt solar panel on the roof.
