It seems there is a new emerging market on the caravan and camping scene….home built van conversions; providing you with the freedom to explore at an affordable price!
Over the years there have been more and more companies appearing on the internet who can provide a bespoke van conversion service. However, with all things, they don’t come cheap….
For those looking for a (usually) smaller motorhome, as opposed to the coachbuilt style, at an affordable price, then a van conversion might just be for you! One of our colleagues has recently decided to take the plunge and embark on their own conversion. They will write a blog of their self build van conversion journey, offering detailed information of the products used (which will be added to our website, if not already on there), the realistic costs and everything else you might want to know when thinking of embarking upon your own conversion. This will hopefully result in a purpose built van to suit your needs, all shiny new inside with considerable savings based on a factory or specialist converted van.
We’re led to believe (from reading on line) that anyone can do it if you are partial to a bit of DIY, happy to do lots of research (watch lots of youtube clips) and have the free time to spend on it. However, don’t feel that you have to stick to any particular style or layout; go as crazy as you like, or stick to a sensible family layout. The choice is yours…..
