Can you tell me how to turn my car into a camper?

I’ve been seeing a lot of Youtubers living out of their cars lately. How do I turn my car into a camper to live in it as I travel?

That sounds like so much fun. It’s important to remember that you can make any vehicle cozy, so try to imagine what you can do with the space you have.
Next, it’s time to make some modifications. Your modifications may be as simple as installing roof racks or small storage bins on the top of your vehicle, or something larger like a platform bed. This is where you can get creative with the size of the space you have.
If you have a van, you may be able to turn your van into a full-sized camper or install RV-like features.
Once you have a solid layout idea, it’s time to fill your vehicle up with everything you will need to live comfortably. Don’t forget basic items like:
  • Blankets
  • Battery-operated heater
  • Food and water containers
  • Trash bags
  • Ice chest
If you plan on traveling for an extended period, you may also want to bring some things that remind you of home. Your favorite blanket, pictures of your family, and other personal items can make solo traveling a lot less lonely.
And, if you want to make sure your vehicle is protected while you’re on the road, make sure you have the right car insurance policy! Converting your van or car to a camper can change the type of insurance you need. For help, download the Jerry app and call or text Jerry’s licensed agents.
