Conversion Story: After knowing each other for about 2 months Marc and Alice hired a quirky campervan, they loved it so much they hired another for their honeymoon 4 years later, and started dreaming about owning their own van, and now the dream is reality! Deirdre is a 2014 Ford Transit, relatively new and easy to drive for a large vehicle. The conversion was done by "Barrel of Monkeys". Marc was familar with Barrel of Monkey´s skilled carpentry and was excited to hear he was branching out into van conversion . Not only is he a very skilled craftsman he was easy to work with, willing to try new ideas and enthusiastic about the conversion. We sourced what we could locally, got mum on hand to make the curtains and used a co-operative to do the upholstery. We really enjoyed doing the decorative touches, like painting, oiling and adding beautiful things we came across, like our bakset and oil bottle from a holiday in Italy, and the door knobs and curtain material we found in our lovely Frome, it was really exciting seeing it all come together.
