Kia ora! My wife (Leanne) and I are the owner-operators of Quirky Campers NZ but I am also a van converter… namely CamperDan.
Having upgraded pre-converted vans and built another two from scratch, I turned my hobby into a business back in 2021, taking on client commissions… and it was full-on! Examples of my work are shown in the pics. Back from a well-earned break, I’ve now decided to step away from doing whole van conversions but focus on smaller jobs that I can fit around running Quirky.
So if you want help with the “scary” jobs (like cutting holes into a perfectly good van to fit a window or roof vent) or getting the plumbing or electrics sorted, give me a call. I understand what is needed to obtain certification (self-containment, gas safety, electrical etc.) and have a good network of people to sign-off work and source equipment and parts at good rates.
Seeing a bespoke bach-on-wheels come to life has become a passion (addiction?) and allows me to problem solve and be creative and crafty while using my previous tradie experience. I particularly enjoy working with timber and finding quirky ways to add personality to campervans that reflect the owners style if you want some of that too!
