Convert Your Van Ltd - Layout Guide



Below is a brief guide to choosing / designing your camper van/motorhome layout, there are example layouts as well as hints and tips on how to decide what you want if there isn't a layout listed here that is right for you. There are example layouts for larger camper vans / motorhomes / race vans as well as some alternatives to the standard side layout and rock and roll bed for smaller vans such as the VW T4 and T5 and SWB Transits, etc.

When deciding on a layout it is good practice to look at what has been done before, go to motorhome shows or large dealers where you can have a browse round. Bare in mind that what might look great in a photo (or layout diagram), might not be ideal for everyone in practice, so to go and have a look inside and a walk round existing motorhomes can give you a better idea of what you can expect to fit in a given sized van.

The next thing to consider is that when it comes to a camper van interior, everything is always a compromise, the ideal would be a coach sized motorhome to fit everything in that you want, but that would fit in a car parking space at the local supermarket, and that obviously isn't possible! So it comes down to compromise. Decide what you need in your camper, what you'd like in your camper, and what you could do without. For example, how many secondhand motorhomes/camper vans/caravans do you see where the shower has never been used? Do you need one? Some people will, some people won't.

If you already have your van, once you have a layout in mind it is a good idea to try it in the van, this can be done by drawing it on the floor or marking it with tape, you can then get an idea of what space will be left, what gaps you'll have to walk through, etc. And don't forget the wheel arches! Arches can often get in the way of fridges, toilets, etc, so try to bare them in mind when planning your layout.

Below you will find some example layouts with approximate prices for furniture and cushions (prices are a guide and can vary either way depending on van model and finer details).
Please note, these are just some of the layouts that are possible, and it would be almost impossible to show every type of layout that you could have as the possibilities are almost endless. The diagrams are intended as a guide, you could possibly combine your favourite parts of more than one layout to come up with something that is right for you. If there is nothing that seems ideal, you can always email us with your own unique layout and we can give you a quote based on that, all we need is a detailed description or better still a diagram and we can give you an accurate quote.

The layouts are listed (roughly) in size order, starting with smaller vans such as the VW T4, Caravelle, T5, SWB Transit, Vivaro, etc, working through MWB and LWB vans such as the Citroen Relay, Fiat Ducato, Renault Master, Vauxhall Movano, etc and finishing with extra LWB vans like the Mercedes Sprinter, Volkswagen LT35/Crafter and Iveco Daily (which are often used for race van conversions).

Please note: Prices shown are intended as a guide and are for furniture and cushions only, they don't include any appliances, lining, windows, etc
(See Prices page for further details of all prices)



Smaller Vans (SWB)


The layout shown below is the most common in the smaller low roof van conversion and is often seen in SWB/LWB VW T4s and T5s, Mazda Bongos, etc. It is our standard side conversion with wardrobe and kitchen unit running down the side of the van with a rock and roll (pull out bed) bed at the rear. Small variations are available with this layout, eg mounting the bed further forward to give a boot area or adding a buddy seat / rear facing seat behind the front seats.

Fitted side conversion prices start at £1245 with flat pack kits starting at £995. See Prices page for further details









These next layouts are a little different for a SWB/LWB low roof van (eg Volkswagen Transporter, Mercedes Vito, Vauxhall Vivaro) and show either an L-shape seating area or side facing settee with a small rear wardrobe and a kitchen unit running down the opposite side of the van. The L-shape perhaps gives a more comfy setup, but the single side facing settee allows walk-through access to the front of the van if you have a single passenger seat.

Fitted Prices from £1795 for low roof van - See Prices page for further details
(please enquire for supply only flat pack prices)





Smaller Vans with High Roof
(eg Vauxhall Vivaro LWB High Roof, VW T5 High Roof)

The following layouts are based on a Vauxhall Vivaro LWB High Roof van, this size van tends to fit right inbetween the small vans and the larger motorhome type vans, so the layout can either be side conversion but with quite a lot of open space, or you can squeeze in a toilet cubicle and have a compact two berth motorhome type layout.

The side conversion with overhead cupboards starts at £1895 fitted or £1495 supply only. The L-Shape / Side facing settee layouts start at £2295 fitted.
See Prices page for further details.





Smaller Vans with High Roof - Compact 4 berth layout
(eg SWB / Med Roof Transit, SWB High Roof Vauxhall Movano/Renault Master)

The following layout is based on a SWB Medium Roof Transit, with the use of rear bunk beds this provides a very compact 4 berth motorhome / camper van that could quite easily be used as everyday transport, yet still provides practical space for holidays away with good sized toilet cubicle and lots of storage space. (please note that this model transit only provides around 5' 9" of standing height and not quite a full 6' bed across the van unless you remove some sections of the ply lining)


This conversion would be approx £2895 fitted or £1895 supply only. See Prices page for further details.

Also remember these are examples, if you have your own ideas or would like a combination of more than one layout we can build to individual specifications.
