The SJ Campers Project Van

Happy new year!We are back after the Christmas break and straight onto finishing the SJ project van. This started life as an ex joiner's van and after a full set of rear windows, colour coded bumpers, set of new VW alloy wheels and some roof bars we have sorted the exterior.

A full set of blackout curtains have also gone in as well as...

Bob's VW T5 Camper Conversion

Bob's white T5 panel van came to us with standard black vinyl bumpers and so it was off to our paint shop to have them colour-coded to match the rest of the bodywork. Once the paintwork was out of the way it was on to fitting out the van with a new interior, so out came the old panel van materials and in went some new synthetic insulation, 4-way stretch liner carpet and ceiling panel, complete with all of the necessary electrical wiring, light fittings, sockets, power board and switches. We even added a very neat 12v/240v power hook up...

First job was to send it to our spray shop to have the bumpers colour-coded to match the paintwork. Once done (and looking very shiny and new) we tackled the van's interior by stripping out, insulating and lining it - after we had cut out and installed some tinted windows. We've recently taken to offering the ceiling carpet in a lighter shade of material in order to brighten up the interior and define the roof from the walls. The floor was covered in...

This Week At SJ Campers

We've been very busy this week adding some neat finishing touches to some ongoing camper van projects, both for our customers as well as our own vans. John removed his old standard (non crash-tested) rock n roll bed and instead installed a Smart Beds unit, complete with seat belts to offer some extra people-carrying capacity. We had a lovely looking silver T5 come through the doors for colour coding and tinted window installation. We colour-matched the bumpers and wing mirrors to the rest of the body as well as installing windows in the barn doors and in the side panels of the...
