Conversion Story: Eddie was the result of a long search for a van to convert so that his owners could travel to Triathlon events and holidays and short breaks, off grid or at campsites in the UK or accross europe. Our first outings were in a stipped back builders van with a blow up bed on the floor and surrounded by bikes and equipment.

It was important to us to be able to get cleaned up and to eat well, sleep well and have plenty of storage whether for bikes, SUPs, or just tables and chairs and somewhere to chuck wet clothes and this defined our layout with a hob and an oven, a big frdge and freezer, black out blinds and a shower.

Everything was done by Eddie's owners and the units are built from ply with solid worktops and masses of storage for food, clothes, equipment and wine. The themes are travel and beach which is where we love to be. Eddie can run off-grid thanks to his 24v 160amp (equal to 320amps at 12v) system that is 3-way charged while driving, from the 480 watt solar panels or plugged in to a hook up together with gas hob and the mixed power heater and hot water.
