The wet area panel i used is called (High Pressure Melamine) - www.bunnings.com.au/wall-art-...

I started off by using string line from side to side to build the front wall, which divides the front cab from the back living area. Once I completed this I had a reference to go off to construct all the shower walls. I used a shower base and built my walls around that, allowing enough space for the internal bathroom sheets.

I used SikaFlex Pro as my adhesive to glue the wet area sheets to the timber framing, or marine ply. I also used Selleys Pro Wet Area silicone for all my edge seals. I chose 35mm x 70mm pine timber as it has a decent sized cavity for insulation + plumbing and electrical. Yes it is heavier than metal framing although I don’t think it adds too much weight given the amount I used.

I chose 65mm batten screws because they countersink into timber easily and at this length i can screw into the subfloor without going through the van metal floor. The wet area panels are 3mm “High Pressure Melamine Boards”, which are made for wet areas and showers.

They come in (1200mm x 2400mm) and (900mm x 1800mm) sheets, the larger sheet costs AUD$198 and the smaller AUD$139. I used 2 x large sheets and 2 x small sheets which increased the price quickly! I purchased them from Bunnings.

I used 4mm bracing ply to use as templates as I would rather make a mistake on a sheet that costs $26 as opposed to $198.

I don’t currently have an extraction fan installed in the shower although I will allow cables for this if I ever put one in later. I will be building the door in a future episode.

  • I like the build of your van, but I think you can also make it lighter. Some parts are a little oversized 😉

  • Could you not have cut abit out of the edge of shower tray so that the waste bucket could slide out

  • What great break down 😊 So many great tips.

  • If you bought a radar key off Ebay you would have access to the disabled toilet 24/7 😎

  • 🌅🌅🌅🏘🏘🏘🏘🏘🏘👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧‍👦😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍💃✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️

  • 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  • Would love to have watched this but couldn’t cope with the crap repetitive noise in the background. Sorry.

  • Should have made the toilet door open the other direction. That way wind will blow across it while driving in keeping it close.

  • That cubicle will leak !!!

  • Job well done. I've only just started on a bus conversion and like you have found time and costs are both higher than expected!

  • Bro. Wear shoes at least while you’re doing stuff like this.

  • 4:41 That is one powerful body position. Very intimidated and unyielding. Alpha AF. Thank you for lifting the build body language energy in our community. Please do a silhouette of that body position and make a logo with it for your channel. 7:59 was also a titillating surprise. That casual little glance up to the camera with zero qualms and playful quiet joy, was very Heath Ledger-esque. Very well played. I don’t know what’s more hearty. How you precisely measured and cut the sika flex or how you did this all in thongs as a sicker flex of your building skills. Unfathomable mate. Nice build bro. Thank you for sharing. Would you do this shower build for someone else? If so, what would your fee be?

  • why oh why with the goofy music!

  • A video worth watching...love the way u designed ur van

  • Good attention to detail. I hope your van is still serving you well!

  • You're a skilled worker and works with your hand expertly. I can see myself in you in beach sandals doing my projects in my car or in my house. Good job and thanks for pointers that I can put in use.


  • The level of details in these videos is amazing! Keep up the great work!

  • Thanks

  • hi thanks for videos , I wonder where grey water from shower fan goes? thanks

  • Like it! Good job too! I was told it wasn’t possible to fit a shower and toilet in a medium size van, you have proved them wrong and done an excellent job in the process! Well done! Enjoy watching your videos too!

  • Where did you buy your shower tray and what size is it please. Enjoying your build

  • Maravilhoso ! Parabéns 👏👏👏👏 Que material branco ė esse que você usou nas paredes do banheiro ?

  • Muito bom amigo muito detalhista com quesito banheiro ,só faltou colocar altura interna da van e tipo de revestimento que vc colocou contra o valor é frio

  • Ich wünsche Ihnen Kindern Glückwünsche Ich wünsche Ihnen, dass Sie immer geliebt werden und Ihr Van immer voller Lächeln ist

  • you and your girlfriend are crazy s** about camping stuff similar to orientals

  • No stupid music needed

  • top stuff mate, thanks 🙏

  • Hello ! Thanks for the video. What is the material you used in the bathroom for the wall?

  • You are verry handy mate! Looks good well done 👌

  • Great video mate, could you please stop putting musics in between. I have to put volume up and down every single break to hear you propely. I gonna start fitting out a sprinter very soon. I have no clue with build anything, like carpenter skill or eletrician. I have subscried couple more guys doing a great job. Following you man, you nailed. Thanks.

  • What did you use for a shower tray

  • Amazing, this is exactly the info video i need for my project. You opted for screws in the framing rather than nails?

  • Inspiring video and superb craftsmanship mate. Thank-you.

  • Sometimes less is more. That timber must weight a ton. Great video otherwise

  • Great finished product

  • People who have time to complete mods like this don’t work 9 to 5 days!

  • Awesome mate

  • Great video but I was getting worried about the weight that you are putting on the van. Maybe a sheet of ply a little thinner . Just my opinion

    • Thanks still underweight see van specs on website

  • 👍🚐👍✨

  • Wow could you have picked worse music for this?? Eee. Eee. Eee.

    • I think the music is okay. The problem is that the music is much louder than the voice, and after I turn the music down to an acceptable level, I can hardly hear Jaz. Mixing the music too loud is a common mistake many posters make.

  • saludos y admirable tu conocimiento y astucia al crear el baño y parte de ello es su aplicación en nuestros proyectos, he buscado un modelo de inodoro como el que muestras pero no lo hallo, me brindarías el modelo y donde comprarlo así como la puerta exterior, desde ya éxitos en tus proyectos.

  • Why not just have the toilet cassette access from the inside wall so you dont have to cut a hole in the van?

  • It’s kinda funny how he’s wearing chanclas to build all this

  • Love it

  • I am also traveling by remodeling a Hiace van.‼(*´ω`)

  • First off, watching you work sends me back about 35 years or so when I first started building and remodeling. You really put some effort into it. If I may suggest, next time, put a little more faith in your 3/4 plywood, or even 1/2". If you screw and glue it, you don't have to use nearly that much lumber for support. But, like anything, we live and we learn....and I watched the whole thing and enjoyed every minute of it.

    • Thanks very much I appreciate you watching it all and real glad you enjoyed it

  • Thanks for sharing this wondeful video

  • Hi, can you tell me the brand or product name of the hatch frame you used for the door? many thanks and amazing work WTB!

  • Please, give me the link to Buy toilet online, thank you very much 👍

  • Dont lie thats a glory hole...

  • www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293768860201 Perfect door for a campervan shower conversation

  • That’s a beautiful build, but can you comfortably use that toilet??

    • @Jaz n Lori I can’t believe I didn’t see that! That’s BA dude.

    • Yeah easily, it's a swivel toilet

  • We also built our inside shower in our newly converted Ram Promaster. Using carbon core fiberglass and a steel dog crate pan :) cs-tv.org/tv/video-AVaOxG28UUE.html

  • Excellent explanation,thank you very much.

  • Amei esse cara! Casa comigo? rs Please

  • Adorei


  • Excellent job but music annoying

    • Thanks Keith appreciate you watching mate

  • nice. inspired

  • Great 👍👍👍👍

  • Awesome job Jaz, I’m building a centre shower in my Hiace commuter and you helped me heaps, keep up the good work. 👍

  • The only thing I would add on this bathroom it is a little fan on the ceiling so the steamer can get out! But I read that you are going to install one later on, so we’ll done buddy, Good job 👍! You taught us a lot, congratulations and many thanks!

  • Best shower /toilet installation I have seen so far. thanks

  • using the hole cut out as a washer for the template is genius

  • 35x70mm studs - thank you. I'm building a wall separating the rear from the front so that the back doors open into a workshop that also contains the "workings" - batteries, slide-in toilet etc. I also want it to contain a punch-out panel for emergency exits. The other side of the wall is also my shower/bathroom so this video has been added to my saved list. Of course the downside is that I have to build it after I've picked up the long stuff from the lumber yard!

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-Wcb0uzjfVtU.html

  • Very good job, you did a nice job,


  • The best,excellent prodution Muito bom o seu trabalho Mui bueno motorhome

  • really needed to watch this video but THAT MUSIC! 🤯🤬🤬 Totally had to quit after only 2 minutes 👎 shame...

  • lacked the breather for the bathroom?

  • Couldn't watch any more. Music up music down music up music down .FFS!

  • The next door neighbor is loving the sounds of his construction tools...

    • he lended me 2 or 3 power tools so i think he was fine with it (Y)

  • crap music at recording level where has to be loud to hear you speak. Not worth it, watch muted or not at all

    • yeah i mucked that up but learned from it

  • I really like the way you can empty the potty from the outside , you have done a wonderful job, be proud,

  • Great job. Love it.

  • Hi, amazing work, would you mind me asking where you got a Shower tray ?

    • i got from caravans plus in aus but its not listed there anymore sorry

  • good Job Jaz, a camper without a proper shower/toilet is not a home.

  • Perfect guide and perfect nissan GR Y61 😍😍😍

  • The music though! This might be a good video, but I'll never know because I don't have enough Tylenol.

    • yeah wish i could turn the music down after it was posted

  • cs-tv.org/tv/video-MGM0Y3u-8ts.html Very good~~~

  • Awesome 👏🏻 had to subscribed really like your work. I’m thinking of building one.

  • Super helpful, thank you

  • What time do you use un this project?

  • The man has skills lol no pocket hole jig but same principle used top job

  • Just found your channel and I’m thrilled to find another Aussie build ! I’m going to go watch all your vids to catch-up! . Just subscribed! I’m at the beginning of my dream to travel in and enjoy van life ( still not sure what van is best to buy ). Videos like this allow people like me to make a dream a reality. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into making these videos !

    • Awesome! Thank you! I wish you the best on your journey!

  • A toilet where you can empty without cutting hole in van would be easier. Great stuff though

    • johno 1978 then you have to take it out and carry it inside the van to empty it.

  • Old vid but, I have 13,000k saved and don't want to live in an apartment anymore, do you think that would be enough to get a used van then make all the necessary changes???

    • i think you could get a basic van for that easy

  • 13:27 What is the name of the panel ? Thanks

    • @Janus just added a link the pinned comment and also in the description

    • @Jaz n Lori Ah ? Ok Thanks !

    • melamine panel, 3mm

  • Can I adopt you? What great workmanship a truly wonderful young man.

  • Screwing into end-grain with you have access to pocket holes?? Idk bout that...

  • Even 2.5 years later still one of the very best van build series on you tube WD Jaz

    • I think you should be traveling in most African countries like Kenya so that you should teach people like us to make it

  • Fantastic video. Very clear of what to do

  • Hi Bro, Nice to see your job. Can you Tell me wich material are made those panels that did you used in the toilet walls?
