VW Camper Conversions

VW T5 camper conversion


When Keith was starting his bodywork and accident repair business over 45 years ago his previous employer, the Managing Director of Rolls-Royce Shrewsbury, asked him to work on his Commer Auto Sleeper camper van. Keith extended it in to a long wheel base camper and fitted a toilet and innovative pumped shower and seriously toyed with the idea of continuing with that line of business. Fortunately, or unfortunately, a growing and successful accident repair business took up most of the time so the idea was left as just that.

45 years later and with the increased popularity of VW camper vans, we have found ourselves increasingly being asked by local owners to repair, customise and convert their beloved VW vans so it seems to have come full circle. With our experience in the vehicle repair business it’s a natural progression to diversify into converting camper vans and we pride ourselves in taking a¬†practical, innovative and cost effective approach to the work.

All our conversions are made to our customer’s requirements but we can do as little or as much as you like, from day-vans to full camper conversions.¬†With our in-house bodyshop we can offer full vans re-sprays, camper van accident repairs, spoiler and bumper valance fitting, roof and window fitting, running light and side tube installations and complete interior conversions. All conversions are custom specification but a typical interior conversion would consist of:

  • Ply lining, insulation and carpeting
  • Vinyl flooring
  • Full set of cabinets, wardrobe and table
  • 12v and 240v electrics with LED lighting
  • Smev hob and sink with tap
  • 12v Waeco fridge
  • Fully upholstered crash tested bed with seat belts
  • Complete set of van curtains

If you would like to discuss your options for a camper van conversion then please feel free to give us a call on 01939 233243 or pop in to our workshop to discuss your ideas!
