Campervan Conversion: Choosing a Company

Looking to find a Campervan Conversion Company?

Whether you're looking for a full Campervan Conversion or just a basic Van Conversion, it can be really tricky to know where to start. When looking at Campervan dealers it's hard to sift through the rubbish. Check out our guide on what to look for. 

Campervan Conversion

There are loads of fantastic companies that convert vans, it's hard to differentiate between them all. 

Choosing a Campervan or Van Conversion Company 

The key things to take into account are: 

  • Budget
  • Location 
  • What do they specialise in
  • Safety 
  • What van do they specialise in 
  • Reputation
  • What manufacturers do they use

What Base Vehicle 

Most campervan conversion companies will specialise in a particular base vehicle that they convert into. For example Wildworx specialises in the Volkswagen range. Including the VW Caddy, VW transporter and VW Crafter. You will find other companies who specialise in the Ford Transits and the list goes on. 

It's important to find someone who specialises as there are many elements of the build that change from vehicle to vehicle. It's important your furniture fits millimetre perfectly. To do this the van conversion company need to know the van inside and out. 

Manufacturers 

Different converters will specialise in different manufactures. For example for the pop top roofs. There are so many different suppliers out there, most converters will have a favourite roof supplier. For example we like: 

  • Skyline 
  • WestDubs
  • Storm

Reputation 

It's important to check out the reputation of different converters. We would suggest checking their online reviews and check out different threads on forums. We like the VW T6 Forum. For good, impartial advice.

You can always ask the converter for contact details of previous customers. This is a big purchase and it might be useful to talk to someone who has already used them for converting their campervan.  

Budget for your van conversion

The cost of a custom van conversion or campervan conversion is such an important aspect for a lot of people. We suggest that you have some sort of budget in your mind so you have a rough idea of how much it is you wish to spend before you approach different companies.

The overall cost of a custom van conversion will depend on what it is you want exactly. For example a full Campervan Conversion will probably cost you in the region of £10,000 to £50,000 for a full Conversion. 

Different companies will tend to specialise in a particular area of the market. For example high end, mid range and budget campervan and van conversions. 

Before you get a full personalised quotation from a company, we would suggest asking them to confirm what range their conversions fall into. For example Wildworx Campervan Conversions generally cost around £25,000.

Basic van conversion

If you are tight on budget, you can always opt for one of the cheaper options and get a basic van conversion. You will still have all the necessary amenities that you need, but all the added extras such as roof bars and side bars will not be required. You can still go for a basic van conversion even if you are not on a tight budget, but you may find it easier to purchase some accessories just to make your trip run more smoothly.
