VW T5 and T6 Campervans

Its been over 10 years since we started seriously converting VW's into campervans. Right from the word go, quality was vital. Our first conversions used a RIB seat and Reimo roof. Many of our conversions have a genuine VW California sliding seat and an SCA roof. But we still fit Reimo and RIB when requested. 

In addition to top end products and components, its probably the attention to detail that give us a superior build quality to most of our competitors. We take great care and pride, not just in the details that you do see...but what you dont see is just as important. 

Being a conversion business the size we are, we can certainly produce exceptional work, but in small enough numbers that mean we have a direct connection to our customers and carry that communication and contact throughout the build process. Many of our customers we class as friends and enjoy a catch up and chat at the shows we attend.

Our T5 / T6 conversion has one furniture layout. Its the side conversion style that has been so popular with VW vans since the 60's. It works so well, why try to fix it...but certainly lets make the most of it.

Our conversion is built around a curved tambour unit which was designed primarily to allow the full rotation of the drives seat without catching your knees on the unit. It also needed to allow a tall driver to recline the seat for driving comfort. All our services (Gas, water and battery) are located under the wardrobe and at the back of the van, allowing the main cupboard space to be used for your camping requirements.

There are so many variable in a full conversion that an individual quote will always be required, however we have listed the basics and a few of our popular extras.

You can certainly get a cheaper conversion elsewhere, using a cheaper roof and bed system. Possibly some bought in furniture. But if you are making decisions on price alone, we are probably not for you.

A full conversion with roof and RIB seat is very unlikely to work out less than £17000, and many of our conversions are nearer £25000 with a lot of additions.

T5 / T6 conversions currently unavailable.

Unfortunately due to a consistent lack of quality with elevating roofs, we have decided that it is better for us to withdraw this conversion service and to concentrate on the bigger van conversions ie Crafter , MAN, Boxer and Ducato.

This is not something we have taken lightly, but the increasing number of issues outside of our control does not fit with our business model.

We will still be taking on occasional lining work, but we do have a rather long lead time sorry.
