The Albions' Early T5 Camper Conversion

The Albions' early T5.1. This van came to us having had the elevating roof fitted over 2 years ago, then unsure what to do next it was left unconverted until Heather and Pete found us and asked us to complete the conversion.

Boris The T25 - Where It All Began

'Boris' the T25 Pop-Top came to us in a bit of a mess, but with bags of character. The first thing in need of attention was his ailing 1.5 diesel engine, which had been in there - largely unattended to - from new, and was drastically low on power. We sourced a willing donor engine - a 1.9 diesel unit from a VW Polo - and set about the transplant.
