At South West Camper Conversions we specialise in Volkswagen T5 conversions, parts, and accessories. We have many years experience designing campers to meet the needs and demands of our customers, and offer a range of conversions to suit all tastes, balancing quality and style with budget. 5 Years ago, we moved our business into a custom built workshop in Bideford, North Devon. This has enabled us to keep costs down by increasing productivity, as well as raising the standards of work you would want to expect with a modern conversion. If you’re looking for inspiration, our gallery pages will help you get an idea of what is possible with our conversions. Have a look at the conversion costs and additions pages to see how we can fit your dream campervan to your budget.
Choosing your campervan is likely to be one of the biggest financial decisions you will ever make. There are lots of businesses offering camper conversions and the standards of safety and workmanship can vary massively. Making an informed decision is better for you and better for the whole campervan industry, and the only way to choose who you want to work on your pride and joy is to visit workshops and see for yourself how they work. That’s why we always encourage you to visit, poke around, ask questions and get a feel for the quality of work that will be undertaken. We don’t believe in the hard sell, we want our customers to be happy with the end result, and we feel the finish of our work does our selling. We are confident that if you come and visit our workshop, you will choose us to carry out your conversion.
Customising and professionally building a camper van to your own needs can often prove to be better value than buying a second-hand equivalent or off-the-shelf new converted van. We know that a T5 is more than just a camper van, it’s also a great everyday vehicle; reliable and efficient, and big on space and comfort. An ideal camper van conversion is one that will fit your lifestyle, whether you are off for a spontaneous night away or going on a long trip, commuting or running the kids to school. We recommend panel vans as being the best vehicle to use as the basis for a conversion, but we are more than happy to convert any transporter model, including kombi, multivan, shuttle, or caravelle. At South West Camper Conversions, we offer an award winning range of options for converting your van with anything from 4 to 7 seats. We also offer further additions allowing you to get the most out of your camper.
The team, lead by Colin Humphrey, has over 40 years’ combined experience in VW camper van conversions, cabinet making and upholstery, as well as a life long passion for campervans. Having spent most of our lives living, holidaying and travelling both in this country and abroad in campervans, we know what works and what doesn’t and how important it is to get each element right. We take the time to fully understand your personal needs and budget for a camper that will best suit your lifestyle. South West Camper Conversions is recognised by the insurance industry for all full conversions we complete. We understand Type Approval and meet the requirements for IVA with all staff qualified for gas and 12v/240v electrical installation. This can make a huge difference to re-registering your vehicle and the insurance costs you pay, as well as the number of insurers that will cover you for the true value of your converted camper van.
