This beautiful handmade conversion has everything you could need for any adventure. It was converted in 2020 and we documented our conversion journey on Instagram @rosierelay.
There is space for bikes in the garage space and a dog in the main living area, as well as a full double bed which is fixed so no faffing when you want to go to bed or have a nap!
It is fully off grid, in excellent condition and perfect for long or short trips away, having been specifically designed for long term off-grid living. It would suit someone looking for complete functionality as well as comfort and reliability.
There are further adaptations that could be made to the van if the new owner so wished, such as decals and ability to convert the seats into a single bed.
New MOT until April 2022
Vehicle comes with original service booklet stamped. Last full service was in June 2020. Four new matching tyres, that have covered 1200 miles. New cooling fan and engine mount fitted as recommended by the MOT.
No mechanical issues and has always run well for us. All mechanical fluids regularly checked and topped up.

The van is fully insulated using 50mm Celotex on the floor, roof and sides. DODO sound deadening was also fitted to each panel before insulating.
The kitchen has been fitted out with a solid oak worktop that has been treated with Danish oil for waterproofness. The sink is a large black under mounted domestic sink so makes washing up a breeze! There is a matching black tap suppling cold water via the shurflo water pump. There is also a two burner black gas hob. The kitchen has 5 large drawers and a spacious cupboard providing access to the under-sink area. In the centre of the kitchen is the fridge with ice box.
The seating area is large enough for four people to sit. The table is made from solid oak and can be left in position whilst travelling or stowed away when not eating. The seat closest to the sliding door has a large storage area under it and also contains the electronic safe which is large enough for a 15-inch laptop. The seat on the opposing side contains the electrical system. Above the cab is also an open storage area.
You will see from the pictures that under the bed in the main living area is a dog bed. We needed this space for our dog to join us on adventures however this space could easily be converted into drawers and is adequate space for a portable toilet also.
Both windows in the living area are fitted with curtains and the sliding door has a shelf on it (perfect for a cup of tea when it is raining!)
The bed is a fixed full-size double bed and contains a sprung double mattress, so no need to pack away your bed every morning.
The garage space is accessed from the back of the van. This is lined with heavy duty carpet. On the right is the 70L water tank, 6kg gas locker, Gas shower unit and the plumbing for all the appliances. The shower head fits neatly onto the back door. There is also the mains electrical consumer unit mounted in the back with a shore line plug in also wired in, should it be required. We have never needed to use this as our solar power has always been sufficient (see large electrical system below).
Our extensive electrical system means this van is truly off-grid and this was an important part of the build for us, and we spared no cost in ensuring this was a top class system, see details below.
