Campervan Conversion Build Tools
If you're looking to begin a camper conversion, here's a list of all the build tools you will need.
If you already have access to a wide range of tool, then great! But if you don't own any, then here's a list of what you realistically need.
It's not always necessary to own a complete range of tools, especially as many might only be used for one or two jobs. Other tools, like a jigsaw or power drill, can be used for 90% of the work you need to do.
For complete help on how to build a campervan, check out The Van Conversion Guide which has thorough step-by-step guides on each stage of the build.
