Base Van

How do I choose between a SWB and LWB?

The obvious benefits of going bigger means more space, lots of our customers prefer to go SWB due to driving everyday. The best answer is to come and have a look at what each model has to offer and decide from there! 

Should I be looking for a T5, T6 or T6.1?

If budget permitts, the newer the van, the newer the technology of course. We do full workshop and background checks on ALL vans that we convert, so mechanically everything will be great! 

Does Mileage matter?

On the basis that the original purpose of the ‘commercial’ vehicle is to cover large distances we personally don’t see it being a problem at all. We offer a comprehensive warranty on anything that we choose to build and only purchase vehicle with a comprehensive history. Maintenance is key to longevity! 

What size engines do the vehicles have?

All engines are predominantly 2.0 diesel, we can source petrol if required however they are few and far between! 

Are all the vans diesel?

Yes mainly, however we can source alternate if required. 

What is the length of the Camper?

SWB = 4.8 metres

LWB = 5.2metres

How tall is the Camper complete (Roof Down)?

 2.1 metres

The depends on your personal circumstances or what would work best, each model serves a specific purpose and it will become very apparent when you have had chance to view and experience them first hand. 

Do the camper vans come with a habitation certificate and what does this entail?

Absolutely – a habitation is essentially an ‘MOT’ and comprehensive inspection for your conversion this includes Gas, Electrical and Fire safety.

What does your rolling conversion warranty cover?

Its important to note that your rolling lifetime warranty is valid provided the habitation checks are kept up to speed annually, this will cover all conversion components except for wear and tear and consumable items. 

Camping

Do the vans have a water supply?

Yes – the vans will come with a 20litre cold water tank built into the conversion, very simple to use and very reliable.  

Are the Pop-Tops waterproof?

Yes – However like all canvas and tents treatments need to be done annually to ensure effectiveness. Canvas do have a saturation point so in adverse weather please be sensible! 

How long does the leisure battery last?

There are many factors contributing to this question, such as temperature, useage etc. We would typically expect to between 15-20 hours.
