Conversion Description

About ‘Reggie’ –

I purchased the van to convert so that my partner and I could go off travelling around Europe, which is something we managed to do throughout the summer/autumn of 2020. We had such an amazing time, a proper bucket list item ticked! We would recommend it to anyone that is toying with the idea (and those that aren’t!) Traveling around, seeing the real side of countries, away from all the tourism. With the comfort of having everything you need right there in your little home on wheels.

The van was superb on our travels and we are so sad to be putting him up for sale (dreading the day he drives away from us) but we have some new plans now. We are going to be building more van conversions and we would love for someone new to be able to go out and enjoy life on the road as much as we did, and give Reggie many more adventures.


There has been a lot of work carried out on this van so I will list everything I can think of to keep reading easy. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Refit/refresh work
Due to us using the van for our travels it has picked up the general wear and tear so below is a list of work that we have done to get it back up to that fresh conversion finish.
Ceiling painted matt white.
New USB’s fitted in rear area, these are on flying leads for easier access.
Resealed parts of bathroom cubicle, no damage just to freshen up.
Sanded and re-stained all oak worktops and table.
Paint refreshed throughout van.
Fitted new door system to over bed clothes cupboard.
Full wash, polish, and wax to exterior.

The van does have some marks/chips/small dents on the outside in a few places, but overall it is good for its age. Mechanically this van has been faultless for us, it hasn’t missed a beat, and we covered over 6,000 miles around Europe tackling some pretty epic climbs and descents along the way. For peace of mind we are having the mechanical work, previously mentioned, carried out before sale.

The van is ready for you to pack up, hit the road and have some proper adventures!
