We had always dreamed of owning a campervan & in the summer of 2021 along came Fergus! We have managed to take Fergus around almost all of the UK on a 3 month road trip & we couldn’t of asked for a better van, loads of room, cosy living & still feels brand new having only been converted in the summer of 2021. Unfortunately due to work we are moving away and selling our dream van, we wish that we could keep him but hope that we can give him to a lovely new owner instead. Fergus is a very comfortable, cosy campervan conversion that feels more like a home on wheels. All furniture has been hand crafted, with a mixture of both varnished & painted wood. The countertop also features a raw bark edge.

The van can be completely off-grid thanks to its massive 330W solar panel and split charging ability. Although on the occasion you want to give the 180 amph leisure battery a charge via mains power, you can do this through the Neco genius smart charger in our electrical cupboard. Simply plug the external hook up in & power up the smart charger using one of the two 24V mains sockets. Also in the electrical cupboard is a 12V to 24V inverter which allows you to charge laptops and other devices whilst using solar power.

To keep warm on winter nights Fergus also has a Propex Gas Heater (HS2000). You can operate this using the control panel beside the electrical interface, which moderates power levels. This heats the van up unbelievably quickly for a super cosy home.

In the kitchen area there is a lovely black glass 2 burner Thetford hob, specifically designed for campervan’s. Next to it our very large sink, which has a copper tap that operates with our foot pump system. Water is pumped directly from a 25L fresh water container under the sink & waste goes into a 15L grey water container below. Both are manually filled & emptied. For extra time off grid there is another 25L fresh water container in the garage (boot) area. Also stored in the cupboards under the sink is the 12V cooler box fridge, which you can unplug and take your picnic food with you. There is also a fire extinguisher stored under the sink for safety. Both end cupboards in the kitchen unit are free to fill with food, pots, pans, anything you fancy. Above the kitchen is a fan which can extract air to improve ventilation or can also blow air in which on hot days/nights can cool the van right down!

Above the kitchen area is a very spacious overhead cupboard, we managed to fit our laundry basket, loads of fleeces, hoodies, blankets & also a few kitchen bits too. On the inside of the cupboard doors is a magnetic knife strip to hang any metal utensils & a mirror. Simpli Safe alarm system in pictures is not included in sale, if you wanted to fit your own it is very easy & we can show how it to fit it. We have found it really helpful and has provided the extra piece of mind.

Next to the kitchen are 2 cube seats, which also acts as great storage spaces We used one for all our electrical including laptops, go pro, speaker & all the cables possible. Then the other we used for toiletries, games & lots of other items. There is 2 white blackout roller blinds covering the kitchen window & the opening into the cab, then we have a foil covering for the sliding door window.

Just above one of the seat cubes you can find our 4 x USB ports, 1 x 12V port, 2 x 24V sockets, light switch for the 4 x LED spot lights, power indicator & heater controls.

The fixed extendable bed works amazingly well, allowing even those over 6ft to get a good nights sleep in the van. Above the bed there are also 2 cabinets for clothes & 4 hanging baskets for any extra storage you might need.

In the garage (boot) you will find our solar controller, mains switch board, 180 amph leisure battery & Propex gas heater. The battery & heater have both been boxed in to meet habitation safety requirements. The 4.5kg butane gas bottle is also stored in the garage in a lockable steel box with floor ventilation to meet safety protocols. The garage has to be one of our favourite places in the van just because of all the storage, for our 3 month trip round the UK we managed to fit: 29 inch mountain bike, blow up kayak & oars, body boards, 25L water container, solar shower, levelling ramps, tool box, 2 x camping chairs, wetsuits & much more!

Fergus also has a smoke alarm in the garage & a carbon monoxide alarm in the living space. All gas & electric has been certified, we also had the annual Habitation safety certification done in August 2021.
