2 things which will make this plan a difficult task:

a) the Schengen rule, i.e. you can only stay 90 days inside any period of 180 days inside the Schengen countries.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen_Agreement

b) without a residence in Germany you cannot register a car or van in Germany.

But it's not impossible. Read e.g. this thread
