It is fairly common and also economical to remodel a campervan out of an ordinary van. You need a van that has enough space for beds, and the rest of the required facilities depend on personal taste and needs. VW Transporter is regarded the most popular van for campervan conversions, but there is plenty of room for other brands to target people who are getting into vanlife, or simply want a car that doubles as a recreational vehicle and as a transporter of people and cargo.
Opel has introduced a new van labeled as Vivaro Life that has been designed to be used both as an ordinary van and as a camper van. As the name implies, the campervan is based on the Vivaro van, and specifically its long wheelbase model L2H1. The concept is simple: two rows of seats at the back can be leveled into a double bed. The cargo compartment of the van turns into a 2-meter long bed, leaving storage space under the bed.
In Britain, the new camper van will be available as Vauxhall Vivaro Tourer Weekender according to Autoexpress.
Airconditioner also at the back.
2 USB ports at the back.
220V electricity at the back.

Autoevolution has information that the Opel campervan is scheduled to launch in early 2018. The starting price for the Vivaro Life in Germany is expected to be 45000 euros.
Since the base product itself is the same vehicle as the Renault Traffic, Fiat Talento and Nissan NV300, it is interesting to see if other brands (in addition to Opel and Vauxhall) launch a camper edition from the L2H1 van model.
