Here are some of our favorite campervan garage setups. Everyone’s needs will vary but these are all great starting points.
Far Out Ride did a great job with their garage. Utilizing slide-out drawers makes gaining access to everything easy.
Our full-time van life friends at Drifter Journey also utilized slide-outs for both bikes and gear. They pack an amazing amount of gear in this well organized van garage.
Another really clean design with a bike slideout. This one is Fitz Roy from Freedom Vans.
Notice the shower/water connections on the right. Having an outside shower is an easy option and an absolute must in my opinion.
This was version 1.0 of our Transit van garage. In this design we opted for a bed that was high enough that we didn’t need to take our wheels off the bikes. In addition, the bed flipped up allowing you to walk through.
Jill threw up that world map which was a nice touch.
If you don’t need a ton of garage space I really like these lower bed designs. They make the van feel more welcoming and open. If you don’t mind keeping the bikes on a rack these lower beds are great.
This build utilized a flip down tailgate which I thought was an awesome idea. Gives you a little extra space when your sliding things out from your van garage.
If you’re willing to set up your bed each night it really opens up some design options. These benches fit a lot of people and make for a comfortable hang out spot.
Finding The Van Garage That’s Right For You
Well I hope these campervan builds inspired some ideas for your van. Utilizing slide-out drawers is a great way to make use of all that space. I’ll be posting up an affordable DIY sliding drawer that I built for our van soon.
