VW T5 LWB Factory High Top Conversion

Posted by James Swann on

That's our first LWB factory hightop, what an awesome van...

Lined out in our usual style with anthracite 4-way stretch cloth for the walls and a smoke coloured ceiling - complete with black Altro floor for a tough, non-slip finish.

A Smartbeds rock and roll bed has gone in to take care of sleeping duties, while walnut and puntinella Evomotion units with tambour sliding doors and custom built overhead lockers makes sure there's loads of storage. A Weaco 12v fridge and Can FL hob/sink unit take care of the kitchen appliances, meaning that this high top LWB is ready for any adventure it can be thrown at (or driven towards!).

A heavy duty split charge and leisure battery has gone in under the swivel-based 'captain's' passenger chair, connected up to a Sargent 12v electrics unit with 240v hook up.  USB charge points and LED lights finish the electrical duties and offer some future proof charging options.

To keep warm in the chilly months (that's most of them then!) an Mv Airo2 blown air diesel heater with digital 24hr timer has been installed.

We think a long wheel base high top van is a great option for a home away from home - there's just so much space! We can't wait to hear back from the owners once it's been out on some adventures.
