Promaster campervan conversion !!

Sony a9 + Metabones IV T 0.57 + Canon 100-400ii

More campervan progress :)

We’re up and running with two trips in the campervan under our belts but the mods continue. This time we put some time into our cabinet. The temporary bungie system worked but now we have sliding doors and a hinged door to contain food items, plates, cups and the coffee machine. The next step for the cabinet is the ‘desk’ where you see the laptops; at the rear of the desk we plan to build a system of cubbies that extend left to right. These cubbies will contain various items…
