Vehicle Description

Mechanically it is close to excellent and drives as good as a vehicle in its early years. This is due to a Renault specialist examining all mechanical aspects of the vehicle and changing worn parts with new ones and then carrying out a full service including all belts.

This work was extensive and all carried out in February 2022, before I started the conversion, and includes a reconditioned gearbox, brand new clutch kit, a new cambelt and auxilary belt, rear brake discs, calliper and pads, new brakes/calipers/pads, 4x new ball joints, starter motor, water pump, sump gasket and camshaft seals, EGR, new wheel hubs, plus removing the old air suspension system and replacing with a new manual suspension. After all of this work, it was given a new MOT and a FULL service including ALL filters and fluids. The engine is dry with no leaks and the mileage is almost irrelevant now it has had the works done to it, these G9U engines are very strong anyway and will do huge miles. I have also just put on three brand new chunky tyres and a wheel balancing, the fourth tyre is only 3 months old too. It is a much safer purchase for you buying a camper knowing all of the above has been sorted rather than something that’s described as ‘runs well’.

It has a 6-speed gearbox, will do mid-30s MPG and I just can’t see it needing anything on the mechanical/reliability side for a long time. I have the receipts for new parts. After the mechanical and servicing overhaul, it’s good to have peace of mind knowing it’s reliable and in good shape and it’s ready for a big Europe adventure.

Apart from the camper conversion, there’s also a few useful features left from when it used to be a NHS non-emergency ambulance, such as ambulance-grade tinted privacy windows an Eberspacher diesel heater in the rear and a brilliant reversing camera — add to this the two Captain’s chairs in the cab which open up the space, a skylight and the fact it is already registered on it’s V5 as a motorhome and you’re good to go.

There’s a button facia missing on the hazard light switch on dash but it still works, factory fitted radio all works okay. The bodywork is generally very good apart from the left side of the camper as the paintwork is faded in places on this side and there’s a long scratch on the near side rear quarter and a dent below side door — please look at the picture as you can see this. Apart from that left side, the rest of the bodywork is very good.

Beds Description

One double bed. Beech slats/Ikea foam mattress.
6ft long x 4ft 4in wide.

Conversion Description

A quick about me, so you’ve a picture who is selling this camper. I’ve been converting vehicles for five years learning my craft, two years professionally. I studied at Art School where I specialised in installation art, so building campers is a type of installation space, carefully considered to feel a certain way. I’ve travelled all over the world, around Europe twice in campers I’ve built, so I understand what’s important with camper converting (understanding the line between practicality and aesthetics) and that a beautiful camper is only beautiful if the thing’s reliable and serviced! I also pride myself on my integrity following the basic rules of karma so I’m selling this camper with a clear conscience knowing 100% that I’m handing it over in a mechanically excellent condition.

So the camper…
First and foremost, it’s a lovely space to be in. Lots of light, space and contrast going on so a great place to just hang out/easy to get in and out of the cab. Standing height 6ft 2in and three levels of insulation in the walls and ceiling (including covering over four of the six side windows) consisting of sound insulation, 25mm insulation board and finished with large sections of thermal wrap to prevent condensation. The floor has about 60mm of insulation so feels solid.

It’s a spacious camper being a longer wheel base and I have retained that spacious feel with the layout and colour scheme to create a social/relaxing space offering peripheral views whilst retaining privacy with the tinted windows. The kitchen area is painted white, the seating area grey, both from the Farrow and Ball paint range. The floor is also grey.

Kitchen: The kitchen area is to just to the right of the side door on entry and consists of a 2-ring glass domino hob, decent size sink and cold water supply. There’s an overhead locker and more storage inside the kitchen unit via drawers and cupboard space. The area feels clean and crisp with a view out of the window when preparing food. The fridge is close by under the bed and is a 50-litre, lockable 12v & 230v fridge, which is virtually silent when operating. I chose this location for the fridge rather than inside the kitchen unit due to the fridge being larger — however I have left a 230v plus socket behind the kitchen if the new buyer wanted a smaller fridge inside the kitchen and to free up space under the bed. The larger fridge is a bit juicer on the power, but runs fine all day off-grid through the solar barely impacting the battery – at night it will need to be turned down to the lowest setting of 1 to run off-grid, or you have an on-grid set up via the 230v hook up for campsites whereas you can just plug everything in the same as being in a house.

Sleeping: The main bed is a double foam mattress rested on beech slats . The mattress is roughly 4ft 4/6in in width so is standard double size, but has been trimmed at the length to fit and measures 6ft long. The bed is raised up to waist height and there is a step to the left of the fridge to climb up/or stand on the end of the bench seat. There is an overhead locker across the back of the camper/above bed offering storage/bookshelf, night-time gadgets. Underneath the bed is sectioned into three areas — the electrics/battery to the left, the fridge, portaloo and storage in the centre and lastly the water and spare tyre to the right.

Seating: There are two box seats divided by a removable table, set against a grey wall, Mole’s Breath is the name of the paint. It’s a very deliberate colour choice and contrasts well with the white paint and bare timber and the feeling of being inside the camper is enhanced somehow. The bench is free for storage as is the overhead locker. The Captain’s chairs in the cab swing around to open up a social space in this area supported by views outside, excellent heater or skylight above depending on the time of year.

Spec: The camper is either off-grid or campsite friendly being that it has both solar and electric hook up features. The spec summary as follows…

360w Monocrystalline Solar Panel — Premium Range with 19.19% Cell Efficiency — linked up to a Renology MPPT control module.
Split Charge Relay for charging battery when driving.
The Leisure battery is a Varta LFD140: vented with an escape vent in the floor
USB charge points / two individual LED lights for different areas of the camper plus a secret amber lighting strip under the window.
50litre 12v/230v Fridge with lockable door
Shurflo water pump / pressure switch connected to an onboard 25litre cold water supply
2-ring gas hob which runs off a 3.9kg gas bottle (I am not gas certified).
230v electric hook up system with two internal plus sockets and trip board.
Push up type skylight
High quality Eberspacher heater – controlled via switch on the dashboard with 4 different settings.
Excellent reversing camera

To clarify, there is no shower and no blinds or curtains, which allows the buyer to chose something they like — the privacy glass is very good though, even with lights on inside at night it is still not easy to see inside.

To clarify, this is a spacious (DVLA registered) campervan/motorhome with a modern design and flexible layout and has been mechanically overhauled and extensively serviced — it feels solid on the roads/bends and drives very well, a serious consideration if you’re planning a European adventure a need a reliable wagon. Delivery may be possible, please message for details.
