Conversion Description

Combining a professional-standard conversion, with beautiful hand-crafted features like hardwood counter tops and copper pipework/brass tap….. every aspect of this conversion has been creatively and carefully thought out.

From the bespoke roof rack & winch system for a sailing kayak, to the outside shower (capable of holding up to 50 litres!) this conversion has been thoughtfully engineered and lovingly crafted every step of the way, to utilise the space and practical nature of the vehicle, whilst creating a beautiful, cosy environment to enjoy on our travels.

Designed with the capacity (battery, gas & water storage) to live in off-grid.

On a pre-covid inaugural road-trip adventure through France & Spain with our dog Charlie, Ethel has proven herself with flying colours!
The high quality of insulation kept her toasty warm through the snowy Alps, and nice and cool on the beaches of Southern France.

**Edit – Sailing kayak has now been sold** The sale can include the fabulous Hobie Tandem Island sailing kayak for an additional £4k (or make us an offer!). This will include mirage drives, lumbar supporting seats, sail, custom made trolley etc

This is a very reluctant sale ☹
With a move overseas in the pipeline, we are unable to bring her with us and give Ethel the life and adventures she deserves…..

• Multiple under bed/seat storage units (including the very important wine rack!)

• Unique table made from recycled floorboards from our old house! (doubles as part of the bed base)
• Folding toilet in discreet under-seat housing
• Stylish vinyl flooring
• Stainless steel sink
• Copper piped brass shut off tap with ‘Whale – Tip Toe’ water pump
• ‘Voyager 4500’ gas cooker – oven/grill/2x hobs

We’d be very happy to discuss any tweaks to Ethel that might make her your prefect acquisition – just ask!
