Start Your Own VanLife Adventure

Beautifully hand-crafted campervan conversions
built just for you.


We understand how daunting it can be to navigate the van conversion world, find the right info and avoid costly mistakes.

That’s why we’re developing the Van Conversion Masterclass – an online training course that’s all about you and your dream campervan.

Bear Hug Campers


Freedom and adventure with zero travel planning.

Grab your keys and go.

Your “campervan-to-be” will be bright and airy with a clean finish and super high level of detail.

The interior design style we collaborate over make every van we build have that wow factor and a pleasure to spend time in.

We use quality materials and high-spec parts to design and build an expertly-crafted van conversion tailored to you.

We have a simplified, tried and tested process to get you on the road, starting your own adventure as smoothly and hassle-free as possible.

Based at the edge of the South Downs National Park between Hampshire and Surrey, we have a productive and welcoming workshop and studio which forms Bear Hug Campers HQ.

Send us a message or book a call to have a no-hassle chat.

Drop your van off at our workshop on the build start date.

Log in to your private online drive to view regular photo updates.

No Hidden Costs


We understand this is a big investement, so we have clear and simple pricing.

Agreed price is fixed throughout the project and once the spec, design and price is set, that’s what you’ll pay.

Payments are split up into manageable chunks and spread out across multiple months.

Designing Your Van


There are a thousand decisions and choices when starting a van conversion. We make it easy for you by taking care of everything behind the scenes and all the necessities that go into every build.

We present you with clear design and material options to take the stress out of the planning stage and stop the wave of overwhelming decisions.

We’ll draw up the layout and present you with design, material and colour choices so you can see how it’s going to look.

Not only is this super exciting to see, it gives an opportunity to make changes and decisions before the build starts.

Full Safety Certification


Knowing your conversion has been put together properly is essential.

When we hand over your van to you it comes with full safety certification. This includes gas and electrics safety certificates as well as a vehicle weight certificate.



When you’ve invested in the perfect adventure vehicle, you’ll want peace of mind.

We give you a one year warranty at no extra charge to cover our conversion from any potential problems, parts failures, defects and breakages.

Your Build Progress


Every Bear Hug Campers customer gets a link to a private online folder. On here you’ll see photos and videos of you van build that we’ll add to regularly.

You can view your design mood-board and layout and we’ll add any other documents here so you have everything in one place.
