3D Camper Van Models

When you’re starting out on your Sprinter camper van design, it’s very useful to get an idea of what your camper van interior layout will be like in real-life. You can model it using a scale model or full-scale cardboard/plywood mockup, or another option is to create a 3D camper van model. A 3D camper model can help you visualize how cluttered the design feels, where there might need to be windows or more storage, and if scaled properly, might show you potential problems with how you’re laying out the space.

Here’s some examples of 3D camper van models (from the SketchUp 3D Warehouse) to illustrate the possibilities. Just click on a model, give it a few seconds for the 3D engine to rev up, and you can rotate the model to view it from any angle, and zoom in and out. Any of these could be built on a Mercedes Sprinter van. Enjoy!
