Renault Master Camper Conversion

This long wheel base (LWB) high top Renault Master came to us recently for a 'full-fat adventure' installation.

First up was the job of installing the windows - we cut out and cleaned the apertures ready to bond the tinted windows in place. The eating area got a sliding window, with fixed windows installed above the kitchen area, loo and sliding door. 

Then it was on to the inside where we stripped out, insulated then lined the interior with four-way stretch carpet in order to achieve a sleek, black finish. A heavy duty Altro Flooring laminate was used underfoot to provide a very long-lasting and attractive finish.

As you can see from the gallery we've given it a 'new-retro' look with Egger's yellow cabinet doors and units finished in pine (Egger's Sand Zebrano). With the gas hob and sink installed we fitted a fold-down table to match the work surfaces.

We've also installed a full-height toilet and plumbing, together with a full electrical pack to manage lighting and power outlets. And possibly our favourite bit of any luxury van conversion is the addition of a garage in the back to store bikes and other outdoor toys!

This luxury item will be back in the workshop soon for some new seat upholstery as well as a few little jobs. 

If you like the look of this and are thinking of your own camper conversion please get in touch below.

Sofia's Ford Transit High Top Camper Conversion

We don't just do Volkswagen camper conversions you know? This mean, green Transit machine came to us with a wish list of must-have camper features from Sofia.

The challenge was to pack in a fully powered leisure electrical system consisting of fridge, kitchen units with sink and gas hob, diesel heater, lights and power charge points as well as lining out and insulating the van.

"It’s great. Thank you very much to Stuart and his team. We love it, especially the bike storage :-) Van life here we come!" — Sofia

On top of this Sofia wanted a large bed (always a wise decision, in our opinion) as well as plenty of storage and seating in the living space. But most importantly of all (and this is a certainty, not an opinion) was the need for bicycle storage - five of them, no less!  To solve this one we built a double bed high up in the roof space, allowing us to free up the space at the rear of the van to create a bike garage area, capable of housing up to four adult bikes (providing the front wheels are off).
