A brief history of Camper King

We two kings – Camper King was created by two directors of their own companies in different fields in 2003

One of the directors builds and supplies fully converted VW campers to the motor home dealers and motor trade in the UK and Europe. He has been considered an industry leader for over 15 years. And is known to everyone as the best converter in the business, which is why the dealers ask him to build VW campers for them.

The other previously managed the leading Volkswagen dealer in the UK as well as BMW and Audi dealers and has an eye for premium brand products and services. A keen adventure sports enthusiast he has owned many VW campers and travelled globally in pursuit of his sports and hobbies.

Together they have formed a business and their own brand “ Camper King” designed to provide a more complete product and bring a factory built solution with warranties and an emphasis on high quality ,into a market where there have previously been great inconsistencies and very limited options.

We aim to deliver a brand that people trust and recognise as being the bench mark for VW camper conversions, after all if you are spending premium brand money then you should get a premium brand product and experience to go with it.

Our directors run the business from the front and are more than happy to deal with customer enquiries and questions directly, when you contact us please ask for either Spencer or Adrian if you would like to find out more.

What we do

To build a good VW camper you first have to start with a good vehicle.

We take great care in selecting the right donor vehicles before we begin. A lot of commercial vehicles are not suitable and it is not possible to turn a bad van into a good campervan, and why would you?

We select the best VW T5 stock available in the UK and avoid many of the pitfalls by dealing regularly with the VW main dealers. We have set criteria to ensure that the vans meet our provenance checks and ultimately give us the best possible platform to begin our camper conversions.

All the vehicles must have a credible and proven service history, HPI clearance to ensure the vehicle is free from any finance, insurance company or police interest. A full and renewed MOT certificate prior to build, and all the required registration documents from the DVLA.

We ensure these aspects are all in place because we invest in this VW camper product before our customers do.

All of our Camper conversions are eligible for change of category by the DVLA to motorcaravans, which can be beneficial when your trying to get insurance.

How we do it

Phase one

The vehicle has a mechanical inspection to meet our required standards , this includes where necessary, new MOT’s, servicing etc. if it is not a new vehicle

Phase two

The vehicle is cosmetically prepared with colour coding, wheels and tyres, and other exterior fitments put into place

Phase three

Then comes the process of turning the inside of the van into a camper:

  • We remove, brace and reinforce the roof structure and fit our customised elevating roof
  • The windows are fitted and privacy tinting is applied
  • The bespoke furniture units are inserted using tailored fitments to avoid movement and creaking when travelling
  • All the fixtures are put into place for the utilities supply, water works, gas lines and connections and power supplies for 240v and the 12v leisure battery system
  • Finally the interior seating and upholstery is fitted along with additional finishing fixtures such as the curtains and trimmings

Phase four

Commissioning of the vehicle when completed includes the testing of all fitments, (inc gas systems and electrics ) and the issuing of the habitation certificate . Then a final road test, prior to sale.

Testing the product

All of our fitted items are the best on the market because cheap alternatives will not last, and you only find out something’s insufficient or broken when you are a long way from home. So we work only with products that are market leaders renowned for innovation and quality such as SMEV to maximise the quality of our vehicle, and your experience.

But we don’t just stop there, unlike any other conversion companies our product has been through a testing program to make sure it works in the more challenging conditions it may face, It is easy to take a camper to the beach and claim it does its job, but what if you’re caught in colder or even freezing weather conditions, visibility on left hand drive roads, wind noise and high speed cruising? After all “life is not always a beach!!”

We run winter testing sessions on our conversions so that we can confidently claim that it is fit to tackle most things it encounters, from Sweden in December, through to Denmark and Poland reaching minus 27 degrees Celsius, or The Autobahns of Germany at high speed exceeding 100 MPH where allowed. Soundproofing and cabin creak tests on Mountain passes in the Alps. You name it our conversion has had to endure it.

The result of this is that we are able to give a full guarantee on all of the converted items on a Camper King conversion, we have confidence in our product and so can you.
