When converting your VW T6 into a campervan, you are definitely going to want to know the best options that are available for you. We know that finding out what will suit you and your T6 can be quite difficult at times which is why we have provided you with what we believe are the best T6 campervan conversion ideas. But remember, these are only ideas and not things you have to do when converting your van.
What is a T6 transporter conversion?
Before you begin diving into what you want to add to your van conversion, you will need to know what a T6 conversion is exactly. To put it simply, a T6 is a VW van that can be converted into many different things for multiple reasons. Whether it is a day van conversion you are looking for or a campervan conversion, a T6 will definitely come in handy! When it comes to converting the van, there are numerous different things you can do to it. So if it is the cosmetic display you are looking to improve or if you want those amazing practical benefits, you should 100% start your journey in converting your very own VW T6.
Why should I convert my VW T6?
This is such a common question people tend to ask when it comes to T6 conversions. However, there is not one simple answer to this. What and why you will be using your van for is entirely up to you. But if you do not have some sort of answer as to why you would like to convert a T6, you are more than capable to do some extra research on different types of van conversions. If it is a campervan conversion you want, cost is a massive benefit. It will provide you with the ability to holiday anywhere you would like, without having to pay for things such as accommodation. As staycations are becoming insanely popular within the UK, wouldn’t it be awesome to have your very own van to take travelling? Whether you want to take your family or friends with you, you certainly will have an experience of a lifetime and it will be worth every minute! You can also convert your T6 into a day van to use for trips such as a day out fishing, or simply as a work van.
Alloy wheels are most certainly a must when it comes to any van. To put it simply, alloy wheels are wheels that are formed from an alloy of aluminium & magnesium. They come with various different advantages for your T6 such as quicker acceleration, or the ability to stop your van faster. However, it doesn’t stop there! Alloy wheels also provide great cosmetic benefits as they make your van much more visually appealing to allow it to stand out in the crowd and look fabulous. Size wise, we suggest that 18’ or 20’ are the most suitable for VW T6 conversions. We have a range of beautiful different alloy wheels.
Resprays & Bodywork
Everyone is different when it comes to choosing what they want the bodywork on their van to look like. So because of this, here at Wildworx we are more than happy to complete any unique designs you would like for your T6. However, before you make that decision, it is strongly recommended that you fix any dents or scratches that are on your van. No matter the size, there is no point in having your van modified if it is not in pristine condition! If you are worried about the cost, do not worry. The price to get your van looking as if it is still brand new is a lot less than you think. By doing this, you will then be in the position to start creating your own personal and perfect design! So if it is a half & half respray you want or simply one colour all over, choosing Wildworx to complete this for you will be totally worth it. Here at Wildworx we do have an in house paint shop, where we can complete most of your unique design ideas. You can check out the designs we have completed for our customers by taking a look at our website or social media accounts.
Pop top roofs?
Pop top roofs are definitely an awesome choice for campervan conversions. Not only are they extremely popular with our customers, but they also come with so many different possibilities such as an extra high raise for sleeping or cooking. They can also be colour coded so they match the beautiful design of your T6, rather than making it look a bit odd. If safety is something you really care about, you should definitely do a lot of research on different companies that produce pop top roofs. It is so important to look for a pop top roof campervan that has gone through meticulous crash testing to ensure that they are as safe as they can possibly be. We can assure you that all the pop top roofs we offer here at Wildworx, meet safety requirements and nothing is of a poor quality.
A roof bar consists of a collection of bars that are attached to the roof of your VW transporter. They are typically used to convey large items such as bikes, canoes or large luggage. Sometimes, people like to add roof bars simply to allow for more space in their van. However before you make the decision to purchase a roof bar, it is so helpful to create a list of what you will be carrying on your roof bar so you can reduce any potential damage that may occur as a result of exceeding the weight limit. You can also add different things to your roof bar such as a wind deflector to reduce wind noise when travelling, and make your journey run much smoother. Roof bars also increase the attractiveness of your T6 majorly, if that is something you are looking for. They aren’t necessary for your van, but they do make life so much easier. Wouldn’t you love to be able to go away in your T6 and not have to stress about how you will be able to fit all your belongings in the van?
One of the most common mistakes people tend to come across is not having that clear idea of what it is they want exactly. Not only can this make your van conversion journey unnecessarily stressful, but it can also lead to a mismatch in styles and accessories. Here at Wildworx, we always recommend that you do a little bit of your own homework before making any decision on a van conversion. This could be, for example, you writing down a list of reasons as to why you want the van conversion and what you will be using it for or maybe how often you will be using it. Whatever the outcome is, this will most certainly put you in a better position for when you come to choosing what it is you want to add to your T6 transporter.

As we have said previously, we highly recommend you do your own research to ensure you are satisfied with what it is you are purchasing for your VW T6. Whether it is the pop top roof you want to buy or just the roof bars, we strongly suggest you do your own research at home.
What about the cost?
When it comes to VW T6 conversions, there are no set prices as it entirely depends on what it is you want. As a result of this, we highly recommend you set aside a budget so you avoid any complications that you may potentially come across when converting your van. We also suggest that you question yourself as to why it is you want the van conversion and what it is exactly you will be using it for. By asking yourself these simple questions, you will eliminate any unwanted issues and put you in the position where you can reduce the time scale & make it a lot less stressful!
