The brief was to transform the interior from a bare van to a van that would be comfortable for sleeping/living in whilst over in Portugal but Tom did not want a full campervan conversion just a simple basic conversion.We started off with the usual insulation, ply lining, carpeting and vinyl floor (in a rather nice wood effect).We then fitted a 3/4 width rock n roll bed with seat belts, headrests and memory foam cushions.
Before we started with the conversion we fully insulated, soundproofed, ply lined and carpeted the van and lined the floor with heavy duty waterproof Altro vinyl.
Next job was to fit a high quality rock n roll bed complete with seat belts. Andy chose to have them built with lightweight Vohringer plywood in Beech finish throughout.
We then fitted an opening window in privacy tint, installed a full width rock n roll bed with storage cupboards underneath (for his fishing equipment) a storage cupboard above the cab area.
We then made a custom seat with space for a Waeco 50 litre compressor fridge to go underneath and a small unit by the side window with space for a water storage container and tap and a removeable sliding rail table.
The conversion included full length units down the drivers side with a Smev 9222 combi burner with sink fitted, 240 and 12volt sockets provided by ourselves and a Zig unit and voltmeter with LED lights supplied by the customer.
The customer fitted his own custom rock n roll bed and all that was left was for us to make a kick panel with a door for extra storage underneath the bed.
The cabinets were then constructed using light weight Vohringer wood in Beech colour and space saving tambour doors were fitted which resulted in a campervan with a modern, comfy interior.

We think our conversion produced a vehicle to be proud of.
