Vehicle Description

Very sadly it’s time for me to say goodbye to my beloved Quincy.

I worked for over a year to build my dream camper van and I hope you can see in the finish that it was worth it. Quincy has been described as a stylish boutique Scandinavian cottage on wheels. Due to my obsession with beautiful finishes and the finer details, everything in this conversion is bespoke. From the cupboard handles, to the hand built speakers, to the wine glass holder. All have been lovingly, carefully crafted to provide a truly special space to be in.

Above looking great and being a proper home when on the road, the Quincy feels great to be in. Despite being a MWB van with a generous kitchen, loads of storage and a double bed, Quincy feels spacious. Especially as you can walk all the way through the van.

Don’t just take my word for it however. Take a look at the reviews on Quirky Campers:

You too could rent out Quincy and take home £12k a year. It’s all setup and ready to go.

Conversion Description

Kitchen

Quincy’s kitchen is a delight to cook in. With a three ring dometic hob, a circular sink, a brilliant 50 litre compressor fridge and loads of worktop space, you can cook up a feast in comfort and style. Worktops are of course hand made out of solid ash. The cutlery drawer has solid walnut front and there is a cupboard with bespoke shelves for every bowl, pan and mug etc. There are two brass LED downlights build in to the underside of the high shelf providing a well lit cooking area and lovely mood lighting. The proudest piece in the kitchen is the bespoke wine glass holder made from wine bottle corks. It pivots open to let you slide out your wine glasses and closes to keep them snug whilst driving.

Stereo

As a music lover I went to town on Quincy’s stereo, even build solid ash fronted speakers to house the fantastic drivers. There are two pairs of Focal component speakers with crossovers in the van. One in the cab replacing the old factory setup and two build in to the bespoke speakers boxes in the rear. Both are power by a high power In-Phase stereo amplified and controlled by the Pioneer head unit in the cab. It’s such a treat to let some crisp sounding music flow through the van whilst in a beautiful spot.

Cladding & Lining

Quincy’s walls are clad with beautiful tongue in groove (t&g) cedar cladding. It’s super lightweight, gives a stylish cosy aesthetic and is also provides another effective insulation layer due to it’s high resin content. The ceiling is painted mdf with ash trim and the floor is t&g engineered oak.

Storage

There’s loads of storage throughout the van. A big over-cab cupboard (ideal for bedding) at the front, kitchen storage for food and cleaning bits. Then in the rear there’s smaller high cupboards on either side then really big storage areas underneath both benches which form the bed.

Bed

High density foam cushions makes for super comfortable seating and bed in the rear of the van. It is often described as “more comfortable than my bed at home” by renters and I am inclined to agree. The bed is made by pulling out the large bench across the walkway. It takes about 60 seconds to make the bed and lay the cushions flat. It is 182cm long x 123 wide. There is also the smaller bench which adds a return to the bed so people well over 6ft can sleep diagonally.

Gas & heater

There is a 25 litre underslung gas tank which provides the hobs and the heater. All professionally installed by Propex in Ringwood. It’s a really efficient system. The gas gets refilled around 2 – 3 times a year when in consistent use and a tank from empty is costs roughly £14. The 2Kw heater very quickly heats up the van and unless Really cold, doesn’t need to be left running for long periods. The system has been having annual Landlords Gas Safe test and certificate to ensure it’s all safe and working well.

Hidden bits – Insulation

Quincy is thoroughly insulated using Celotex insulation board and wool in the tricky nooks and crannies. 50Mm thick in ceiling, 25mm in the floor, a variety in the walls and a comprehensive vapour barrier keeps the van nice and snug and also helps keep the heat off in the summer.

Electrics

2 x 260W solar panels provide the 2 x 115 Ah batteries with a super quick recharging capability. The electrics system was built to be able to provide plenty of power for all electrical appliances for weeks at a time off-grid. Having been running for four years the system has never failed to provide enough power to the 12v system. There is a smart alternator charger that also charges the leisure batteries (new last year) whilst driving. There’s also a 360w inverter for laptop charging.

Running off the 12v system are:

– Main spot lights
– Kitchen down lights
– 2 x brass swivel reading lights
– Dometic CRX50 comrpessor fridge with freezer compartment
– Switch tap and submersible pump
– Twin USB port
– Powerful stereo amplifier
– Underslung LPG tank
– Propex HS2000 heater

Please note the photos shown were taken soon after the conversion was completed. They still represent the van very accurately but there is some wear on the inside of the van since these photos were taken.

This six speed manual MWB Mercedes Sprinter has been immaculately maintained.

Quincy the Sprinter was a Fed-Ex van before I bought it in March 2018. As a fleet vehicle it was regularly serviced and well maintained. Since I have owned Quincy I have been servicing it every year regardless of miles driven. This includes oil and filter change which is especially important in Sprinters for their ongoing good running.

The MOT runs until May 2023 and there is full service, MOT and maintenance history available since my ownership.

The bodywork is in fantastic condition as I had the van fully resprayed in April. This includes a super tough black chip coat from the bumpers down giving a really slick aesthetic. The van has a reversing camera and is limited to 80mph.
