VW Camper Van Conversions

VW Transporter Vans in Kendal

At SJ Campers we don't just offer van conversions; our approach is to help you find the right van and help you to decide on the best kit for it. From flooring to carpets, furniture, electricals, insulation, beds and more.

Whether you have your own van already or are looking to find a new or second-hand one we can help. And we don't just convert Volkswagen vans! Whether it's a Ford Transit, Renault Master, Vauxhall Vivaro or even a smaller conversion such as a VW Caddy or Nissan NV200, SJ Campers will convert it into a dream camper for you.

Types of Conversion

Because everyone is different and there are so many options to choose from, SJ Campers offers all levels of conversion. From simple wall lining, roof lining and insulation, to lighting, full electric installation, leisure battery, units, beds and more - the choice is entirely yours and we're always on hand to help you make a decision that suits your needs and budget. 

Furniture and Units

All of our units are made to order, meaning that you can have any design you want, whether you need a simple cupboard set up or want everything including the kitchen sink! We can incorporate shelves, drawers, sliding spice racks, roller shutters, wardrobe space and more.

Our units come in a range of finishes from wood-faced ply, such as oak and pine to coloured veneers. 

Classic Single-Height Sideboard
From: £885.00 inc VAT

If you're looking for a simple storage unit for your Vdub van then this sideboard is a great place to start from. We can configure the layout to suit your needs, whether you need a fridge aperture, sink unit or simple cupboards and stowage areas.

Premium Wardrobe with Sideboard
From: £1030.00 inc VAT

For an extremely 'tidy' finish our hard-wearing, double-faced furniture board units look fantastic. Made from lightweight plywood (great for fuel savings) these come in a multitude of colours and patterns, from graphite grey to cream, red...

Rock 'n' Roll Beds

Smart Beds Rock n Roll Bed VW

SJ Campers can supply and fit your Rock and Roll bed, as well as provide a range of extras, such as under-bed storage drawers, overhead cupboards and lighting.

We offer crash-test-approved seat/beds as well as non-tested equivalents based on your needs and intended use. 

Rock 'n' Roll beds come in a huge range of finishes and colours to match your existing front seats, or to match the rear cabin trim. We offer leather, cloth and vinyl finishes in almost any colour.

More details on sleeping solutions can be found on our Rock 'n' Roll Beds page. 

Kitchen Appliances and Fittings

We can supply and fit any kitchen units to your van, including:

  • Sink units
  • Taps and plumbing
  • Waste pipes
  • Fridges
  • Gas stoves and plumbing

We will build a unit to fit any specifications you have. Take a look at our prices and options for electrical appliances such as fridges and sinks on our dedicated page.

Lining and Insulation

From: £600.00


  • Wall and ceiling lining/carpet
  • Plywood panels
  • Synthetic insulation
  • Floor covering

If you're looking to transform a bare panel van up instantly and with minimal expense, then lining it out is a great option. We will strip out any existing, worn panels, clean and prepare the surfaces and install new insulation, panels and lining.

As with all of our conversion services we have a very wide choice of carpets to choose from in a range of colours.

We use either synthetic or lambswool insulation, depending on your needs and budget. 

Why Insulate Your Van?

It might sound like a silly question but insulating your camper van will:

  • Retain heat in cold weather
  • Maintain cool in hot weather
  • Prevent moisture build-up and rusting
  • Improve sound-deadening properties

Lambswool Insulation

The primary benefits of lambswool are that it is a natural, recyclable material, which requires far less energy to produce than synthetic fibres and so is better for the environment. It is also fire-retardant and maintains its thermal properties when wet. 

Synthetic Insulation

The primary benefit of synthetic insulation is that it is cheaper than lambswool. Some claim that it has better insulating properties too and dissipates moisture better - reducing the chances of rust developing. 

More information on pricing and options for lining and insulation can be viewed here.


From: £80.00

Our van flooring options offer heavy-duty, robust and reliable materials to ensure your van floor can take whatever you throw at it! We can supply and fit a range of materials in a wide variety of colours, including:

  • Rubberised flooring
  • Resin flooring
  • Laminate
  • Chequered

Our resin and rubberised floorings are:

  • Hardwearing and durable
  • Hygienic
  • Sound absorbent
  • Comfortable underfoot
  • Flexible and resilient
  • Easy to maintain
  • Retains shape 
  • Attractive finish

Electrics and Wiring

From a simple lighting installation to a complete van-wide leisure wiring with power management system, SJ Campers can supply and install all electricals and management systems to a very high standard. Whether you're looking for power sockets, light switches, fridge power, water pump, heating and thermostat or in car entertainment (ICE)...


Whether you're looking for a set of LED roof lights to help you load up the van in the dark, or need a full set of down lights and strip lights to brighten up the cabin, we can help. 

We can also supply and fit spot lights and entry lights to help you find your way in and out of the side or rear doors in the dark.

Captain's Seats

From a single, rotating Captain's chair, to a rotating twin front bench, we can supply and fit the necessary brackets and fittings to provide you with this much-coveted, must-have accessory! 


We can supply and fit three types of cupboard and wardrobe door for van units:

  1. Flush-fit doors.
    Flush-fit doors have square corners and offer maximum access to storage space.
  2. Cabin doors.
    Cabin doors have rounded corners and reduce the amount of material intruding into the cabin space.
  3. Tambour doors.
    These rolling shutter-like doors are a great way to avoid having doors sticking out into the cabin. They also look great!

For information on external doors and roof conversions please see our Bodywork page.

Other Van Conversions

We don't just convert Volkswagen Transporters. Whatever make or model of van you have we're happy to help. We have converted Renault Traffic vans (these are the same as the Nissan Primastar and Vauxhall Vivaro), Mercedes Vito vans, Renault Master and Toyota Hi Ace, as well as smaller box vans. Whatever your starting point we can help.
