People Carrier Camper (Surf Van) Conversions
People Carriers - not the obvious choice when it comes to chosing a vehicle for camper conversion. However, there are lots of benefits which make them ideal, and as long as you go for a model which has sliding rear doors, such as a Kia Sedonna or Chrysler Voyager, then there's not much difference between one of these and a VW caravelle or Mercedes V Class. The main difference is really in the interior height, which is a little lower than in the caravelle, etc, however, length and width really aren't that different, plus the low roof height makes it possible to park in standard height car parks. There are also lots of nice features already in place which make them easier to convert to a camper than a panel van. For example there are already windows all round, the rear is already lined and there are things such as electric windows and central locking that don't often come as standard on a van. Their size also makes for a camper which can be used as an everyday vehicle, so you can go to work in it during the week, then head off for a spot of camping at the weekend.
Our furniture can be purchased in two ways, the first being supply only, where the kit comes 'flat packed' ready for you to fit yourself, allowing you to build a professional looking self build camper van. The other option is for us to supply and fit the furniture. We can also supply a range of appliances such as glass lid sink / hob (cramer or smev), 12v fridge.
Although our standard conversion is the side layout, we are also happy to carry our more custom camper conversions to your own design and specification. We can also provide a rear conversion kitchen unit. For more information and a guide to choosing the right layout for you, please click on the Layout Guide link.
