VW Transporter Conversions - Full Campervan Conversion

VW Transporter Conversions can be a great investment. If you are someone who tends to go camping quite often, then we highly recommend looking at full campervan conversions. You can convert a van or a kombi, it doesn’t matter which one you have. This is because you will be able to travel wherever you like in the UK, without having to pay an accommodation fee and you will be able to go off grid. Some of our customers have added solar panels to their campervan conversion so they can go and do that.

Another great benefit you will receive with a campervan, is that you won't have to worry about sleeping on the uncomfortable ground in a tent. You will also find that Transporters have a very van-like drive. This means that you will be able to use it for leisure, as well as everyday use. It’s a win win really, I mean it can’t go wrong can it! They are also perfect for those of you who are looking to get outdoors as much as possible, as well as meeting and socialising with new people. 

Why convert VW Transporters?

There are loads of different types of vans that are available on the market for you to convert. However, why choose a VW Transporter instead? Well, there are loads of different reasons to answer that question. Firstly, VW Transporters are insanely reliable and high quality. It has won numerous nominations, and holds its value extremely well.

VW Transporters are also great vans to convert, especially for those of you who really care about the cosmetic side of things. You really cannot go wrong with a VW Transporter!

There are loads of other base vehicles available. Check out our full write up of Campervan Conversion Base Vehicles here.

Which Transporter is best for converting, the T5 or the T6?

This is a really common question that a lot of people can sometimes find it difficult to find the answer too. Both the VW T5 and VW T6 are vans that are converted quite a lot, however what is the difference between them? The VW T5 and T6 both look the same from the outside, meaning that the differences between them are quite difficult to spot.

The first difference is that the VW T6’s engine is a lot more environmentally friendly than the T5. This is great news for those of you who really care about the environment! The VW T6 has also been modified to reduce engine noise during travel. However, the only downside to these new improvements, is that the VW T6 is more expensive than the VW T5.

So if you are someone who is on a tight budget, then maybe sticking to the VW T5 is the best option for you. 

VW Transporter Alloy wheels

Alloy wheels. Wow! What a great way to really boost the appearance of your VW Transporter. The fact that an alloy of both aluminium and magnesium can be formed in order to improve the appearance of your van, is insane! However, it isn’t just cosmetic advantages that alloy wheels provide. In addition to that, alloy wheels also bring amazing practical advantages such as the ability to stop your VW Transporter faster.

They are able to dissipate heat faster, meaning that the braking performance is so much better. Alloy wheels are also better for fuel efficiency, due to them being a lot more lighter than steel wheels. They also are less likely to corrode or rust, and lengthen the tyre life. As you can see, alloy wheels are definitely a must when it comes to VW Transporters!

VW Transporter Sidebars

What better way to improve the appearance of your VW Transporter and enhance its practicality, than to add sidebars? Sidebars provide instant and easy access into your van, which is very useful for those of you who may struggle to get in and out of your VW Transporter. You can also go a step further, and add non-slip pads to your sidebars, so that your access is even safer, especially in poor weather conditions. Sidebars also act as a sort of barrier to the outside of your VW Transporter, as they shield the van from being scratched from any road debris which may hit the sides. So, for those of you who are after both a contemporary look and practical advantages for your VW Transporter, side bars are definitely the accessory to go for! 

VW Transporter Pop Top Roof Conversion

Pop top roofs are the perfect accessory for VW Transporter campervans. They are absolutely perfect for those of you who will be taking your van away with you for a long period of time, and really improve the comfortability by a lot. Not only do they provide extra height for your van, but they are great for cooking and also sleeping. However, when it comes to pop top roofs, you want one that can withstand any sort of harsh weather condition. So when you are looking at what pop top roof to get for your VW Transporter, be sure to keep that in mind. You may also want to look at how much it protrudes from the roof of your van too. 

VW Transporter Conversions and Accessories from Wildworx


Most people, if not all, believe that the bodywork of their van is one of the most important things when it comes to van conversion. Everyone has different ideas in mind when it comes to the bodywork of their van, and here at Wildworx we are more than happy to create any of these unique designs you want. However, you will need to do a few things yourself first. We highly suggest that you get any scratches or dents that there may be on your van fixed first, before you have any bodywork done.

This is because you really want your VW Transporter in mint condition before you have any work done to it, as there would be no point in having anything done, and could potentially be a waste of money. Yes, this may seem quite expensive at first, but surprisingly this is actually 10x cheaper than what you think. After you have done that, it is time to get started on doing the bodywork for your VW Transporter. We have an in house paint shop here at Wildworx, where we will complete your designs for you. 

Roof Bars

Roof bars are a great accessory to invest in, if you are someone who is going to be taking large items on your journey in your  VW Transporter. The collection of bars, which are attached to the roof of your VW Transporter, can be used to hold large objects such as kayaks. This means that you will no longer have to worry about not being able to take some stuff for your action packed adventure away! Another way you can improve your roof bars is by adding a wind deflector, in order to reduce wind noise on your travels, making your journey a lot more peaceful. When you go to purchase your roof bars, be sure to keep in mind what you want them to carry, so that you do not exceed the weight limit and then damage them.
