This incredible camper van whose compact size belies her spacious interior has a fabulous kitchen with an upcycled French jam pot made into a sink, split copper pipe splashback and totally unique copper pipe lights which can be rotated to give mood lighting. There is storage galore in Wanda - inside for clothes, kitchen stuff, food, bedding and at the back of the van are large pull out drawers perfect for wet and muddy gear from wet suits, muddy boots, waterproofs, rock climbing gear. A portable loo and an outside shower can be added as extras. Wanda is a light and roomy birch lined van for four seasons, fully insulated with gas heating, solar panels to keep the leisure battery charged and a 240V mains hook up. This gives you total flexibility - perhaps wild camp watching the full moon rise out of the sea or hook up to the mains electric at a campsite.

Conversion Story:Wanda started life as a carpet fitter's van in Essex. Up for re-homing, a couple from Birmingham bought her and set about making their dream Quirky Van for travel and adventure. The highly skilled folks at SnailVans in Leicestershire created Wanda - a comfy, unique, beautiful and practical van. She was insulated and panelled in birch and her unique LED lighting was fashioned from copper pipes which can be rotated to give directional or diffuse lighting.
The flooring was made from recycled pallet wood. Her cupboards were made from birch, finished in a turquoise blue complimented by colourful water gate values as handles..
The kitchen sink is a recylced French brass jam pan and the splash back was made from straightened split copper pipes joined together with copper nails.
My own life course took a sudden turn and I had the good fortune to come across Wanda. I fell in love with her and she has travelled across the country back to her Eastern roots.
