Complete shopping list for your Camper van RV: buy camper parts cheap on AliExpress

Since I’ll be building my third camper van conversion out of a traditional van soon. I made a shopping list for aliexpress for all the parts that can be ordered there to save money. My first article about camper products can be found here: 11 products you need for your camper right now.

I found out there are a lot people that want to build their own tiny house on wheels. And there’s a lot more to it then eleven products. So I decided to share this part lists with everything I ordered (or considered ordering) to build my camper van. So you can build your own camper RV at relative low costs. I won’t be explaining to much in detail here. The main purpose is to provide a useful cheap shopping list for building your own camper van / RV. I’ll be updating it as I find new products.
