Going camping in a conversion van is one of the best ways to take advantage of your vehicle’s interior space. You can bring along a tent and set it up outside, using the interior of your van to bring people and camping supplies. Or you can remove some of the seats from inside your van and turn it into your tent, perfect for one or two people.

To make the most of your van camping, you need to pack it correctly, including bringing along the proper supplies and making sure they are accessible.

My family hadn’t visited relatives down south in over two years. Back then, we had rented a far-too-small minivan, drove all night and arrived in Hilton Head exhausted. This time would be different.
Early Saturday morning, in front of our Kansas City home, my wife and I loaded luggage into our new RAM Sherry Conversion Van. Our oldest son, nearly six-foot tall at age 15, took a seat in the back, where he stretched his legs and promptly nodded off. Our younger two, Lisa and Eric, bickered over entertainment before focusing their sibling rivalry into a competitive round of Mario Kart displayed on the 36” HDTV.
“That beats coloring books and magnetic checkers for road-trip entertainment,” my wife commented as I pulled onto I-70.
“No kidding! With the kids occupied and plenty of leg [...]
