Vehicle Description

This incredibly rare vehicle has spent all of its life indoors, and it really shows. It was owned and cared for by the Welsh Fire Service until 2018 when it was sold at auction. We decided to take this extremely capable vehicle and build a ‘go anywhere’ adventure campervan. A vehicle of this pedigree deserved the highest spec conversion possible. If you are looking for a vehicle that can comfortably take you to the wildest places – dry deserts, forgotten beaches, seriously muddy forest tracks and get you back out again – then this is the vehicle for you. This is not your average self conversion, this vehicle is built by experts to a extremely high level of design and craftsmanship. 

‘The red Mercedes Sprinter van has been with us for nearly two years. In that time we’ve had amazing journeys to Scotland, the New Forest, France and Spain. The van just keeps on rolling, not even done 30,000 miles yet and the ergonomics are beautiful. We really don’t want to sell it but as we’ve been building a house it has always been in the back of our minds that one day we might have to. Now is that time’. Lucy and Roger Thorp

PLEASE NOTE: this vehicle was purchased in 2021 and is therefore a private sale . This vehicle is not being sold by Onwards Adventure Vehicles Limited.
