This Father Turned Dirty Old Prison Van Into Awesome Family Camper.

Alex Saunders bought an old prison van on Ebay for £3000 (US $ 5,034 ). It originally had six holding cells, lockable cell doors, and peep holes for the security guards. He spent 18 months and another £4000 (US $6,700 ) fixing it up. Alex installed everything himself including bunk beds, kitchen, and the heating and water system.

Alex plans on doing lots of traveling with his wife and two children.

It even has a flat screen television so the family can have all the same comforts of home.

Alex said, “It was pretty grim when I first went in there, it smelled like a mixture of blood and old soup which had been spilled everywhere.”  He gutted the van of the cells and starting measuring first.

The van had great insulation. Most prison vans have better insulation than homes.

He seems very proud and rightfully so, that’s some very impressive handyman work there. That family will have lots of great memories camping. Traveling the country sounds like a good plan!
