The van is thoroughly ventilated and insulated, with no corners cut. The makers have balanced their artisan mastery with practicality to ensure a trip away in Silurian is a pleasure for the senses wherever you venture.
Conversion Story: ‘Silurian was purchased in 2018 by two friends wanting to test their creativity and produce something special. Led by a professional carpenter/joiner with the support from a novice apprentice, the pursuit of a perfect finish required painstaking precision and dedication. Silurian is a one-off conversion that was both a joy and a rewarding learning curve. We really hope you enjoy it.
