Why use Timber for your Campervan Project

One of the first steps you need to accomplish when renovating your very own camper van, is to insulate and panel the interior. At this point it is a good time to wire all the electrics so they can be hidden behind the panelling.

For the panelling it is recommended that you use a plywood with is cut to the size and width that suits your project. You can both buy large sheets of plywood and cut it down yourself or you can order timber that is specifically cut to your desired width.

Once you have insulated and panelled your interior, you may choose to add an additional layer of timber to the interiors of the van for aesthetic purposes.

There are many choices of timber you could choose from for this interior timber cladding, including but not limited to:

  • Oak *
  • Maple
  • Cherry
  • Walnut

The above timbers are very aesthetic types of timber and will create a high end and stunning interior for your camper. If you are working with a lower budget there are many look-a-like versions of the above types of wood that you could switch in.
