This part is about my adventures in Taormina city and renting my campervan from Indie Campers.
Van conversion tour of Fiat Ducato i rent from Indie Campers during my Sicily (Italy) trip. Smart way to fit 4 people in a small simple van with shower, wc & kitchen. I like the layout and functionality of this build.
All rent & van rates and offers you could find on http://indiecampers.com
I'm not working on or related with Indie Campers company and only could answer some questions related to this particular van i use for 5 days.
This part is about my adventures on Etna volcano. Also includes famous Catania city fishmarket.
Don't miss next part, when i finally get my campervan
In December 2017 i decide to have some vacation and go to trip to Sicily island (Italy). I rent a campervan from indiecampers there and have some amazing week driving around Sicily watching interesting things.
This part dedicated to my Catania city browsing. I arrive 14 Dec, but my campervan booked from 16 Dec so i rent a car for this 2 days (for crazy 5 euro price).
Next part will be about my adventures on Etna volcano, and after that i finally will get my campervan and going to even more interesting places. Next video will be ready very soon!

I was very upset with metal walls in my van - they looks terrible. Scratches and random holes all around. But then i found out you can cover this panels with some glue end eco-leather material for cheap and easy!
This is NOT the instruction how to do this job good. It's only my way to do it for super cheap and fast. Use this knowledge carefully for your projects. For sure this work could be done better.
