Building a campervan yourself is hard. We make it a whole lot easier,
less stressful and more fun. Or we can build it for you.

It Has To Be Said ...

Building a campervan is hard.

If you’ve decided to do it yourself, then you’re in for a whirlwind of a ride.

If you’ve decided to get a professional to do the build for you then you’ve got a load of discussions and ideas sharing ahead.

Not to mention finding someone that you like and trust enough to take on such an involved project.

If you’re here, then chances are we share a similar love for the style of campervans and interiors that you see on this page.

Bright and airy with a clean finish and a super crispy level of detail, but without being overly modern.

You won’t see any grey carpet-clad interiors here, or multi-coloured LED strips.

Nor will you see wood-clad saunas or vacuum-formed mouldings.

Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those things – at all!

If you’re anything like us you’ll probably have a Pinterest board of Scandinavian open-plan cabins with cosy lighting and views out to the mountains.

Or colour combinations saved from one of the nice eco-friendly paint companies. (You know, the really nice ones).

But this is about you.

If you want a van conversion at all, then my heart goes out to you. 

The obsession has begun.

You may still be trying to decide if you are going to take it all on yourself or get a pro to do it.

Or maybe you can do ‘most’ of it yourself and get help with the bits you don’t like some of it.

Whatever you choose, we’ve worked in all of these ways with people just like you.

The outcome is always a one-of-a-kind campervan that is truly yours.

A tiny-home on wheels that is ready for full-time vanlife, or weekend wonderings.

It all starts by ‘choosing your own adventure’ below.

The rest will follow…
