When is a Ford Transit Not a Ford Transit?
When it’s a Ford Transit Conversion from Outside Van, of course. Usually specialising in Mercedes Sprinter conversions, this US based company has done something very beautiful with the bog-standard Ford Transit, transforming it into a spacious and luxurious home away from home.
The campervan boasts a rooftop tent for a room with a view, and comes with a lightbar so you can quickly highlight any wild animals that you might hear rustling about in the undergrowth and catch a glimpse of those elusive badgers or curious foxes. A pop out awning gives you the perfect place to enjoy al fresco meals and sundowners, while everything packs away neatly so your vehicle profile is barely noticeable as belonging to a motor home.
VW T6 Conversion will Convert You!
VW are known as the manufacturers of campervans and crossover vehicles and this campervan is the pinnacle of all VW’s expertise blended with a conversion undertaken with a deep understanding of what people want from their motorhomes.
The Trakkadu 450 S is a Volkswagen T6 conversion, performed by the talented engineers at Trakka in Australia. It is speedy and powerful enough to please your inner speed and power demons, and unfolds, when stationary to allow for generous headroom in the compact, but exquisitely pristine interior, which looks rather like the executive lounge in a New York skyscraper.
Mercedes Sprinter Leads the Pack
The Mercedes Sprinter is a sleek and stylish van, and this conversion, once again from Outside Van, makes it into a sleek and stylish campervan, oozing with elegance and comfort. Built for serious adventurers – preferably those with plenty of disposable income and a hankering to explore well outside the beaten track – this conversion has a small bicycle garage below the sleeping platform.
Despite this, there is still plenty of living space in the campervan for those times when you want to stay in and relax – in between adventures, so to speak.
The Renault Trafic Stopping Traffic
Something of a class clown of van conversions, the Renault Trafic gets something of a bad press, but this conversion is set to change a few minds about that. Komapanja, a German company, have taken the humble Trafic and converted it into a personal home theatre thanks to the portable projector that casts your chosen film onto any nearby suitable surface for some wide screen relaxation while on holiday.
This campervan is modular, so you can change it according to your needs, depending on whether you are doing the school run or heading off to the mountains for some mental and physical rejuvenation.
The Jubel Explorer conversion, by This Moving House, is something of a jewel when it comes to campervan conversions. The campervan sleeps four, with the children in their own tiny ‘rooms’ small, self-contained pods that can be separated from the living room area to allow them to get to sleep on time, while the adults sit up and chat, happy in the knowledge that they are not disturbing their little ones’ much-needed downtime.
Hopefully, you now have some ideas about what you want from your self-build campervan. Do bear in mind that all your hard work is at risk the moment you start working on the conversion, which can be a lengthy process.
