Vehicle Description

The beast is an 03 plate SWB vivaro swamper with no expense spared on the kit. 1.9 engine with 2.5 inch cat back exhaust and phantom tuning stage 1 remap recently done so sounds meaty!
Since buying the van it has had, new injector seals, new rear springs, new track rods and ball joints, new front chassis rail supports, new (and relocated) washer fluid bottle, and much more (with receipts somewhere) plus a full 5 piece Vanolarm remote alarm and tracking system fitted (each door is individually alarmed with touch sensitive door handles).
Fitted with a rare 50mm lift kit front and rear with upgraded brand new rear shocks from a Renault Master so no topping them out or knocking. The arches are also cut back a further 50mm and fitted with flares so gives a really aggressive look and a lot of clearance.
Sitting on land rover discovery 2 black Gojo steel wheels hugging a beefy set of 245/75/R16 Insa Turbo Dakar mud terrain tyres that have covered less than 1000 miles since new. Rear door mounted matching spare included. I also have the original set of 17″ BMW alloys that came on the van with LR tyres in storage which will be included at no extra cost if wanted.
The hubs were also treated to 20mm spacing PCD adaptors and them spigot rings for perfect fitment without wobble bolts. All wheel wells have been fully undersealed.
Chopped front bumper, bull bar and purely cosmetic “sump guard”, side steps and bonnet protector installed.
Up top we have a roof deck (great for events or sunbathing) with side mounted access ladder, MaxxFan Deluxe and 120W solar panel as well as a full width super-bright light bar.

Beds Description

Full sized fixed single bed in rear, can sleep one or a small couple / adult and child. 2nd option is to sleep a second person across the front bench seat.

Conversion Description

Inside we have a solar charge controller, 2 x 110 amp hr leisure batteries and fuse box, 4 x dimmable led spot lights, side and rear windows (not opening ones) with black out curtains all around.
Full sized fixed single bed width-ways (I’m 5’9” and can just lay fully straight… not often anyone sleeps like that but nice to have the option) custom built cabinetry with high quality faux tiled dividing wall and upstand with storage baskets. 2000W diesel night heater, 2 burner gas hob, converted to take the small screw on style Coleman C500 gas bottles but easy to change to other types with a new regulator on the end of the line (4 full gas bottles included), large stainless steel undermounted sink with replaceable cut-out insert and drainage/strainer rack. 2 x 20L fresh water tanks and 12v pump system plumbed to the tap. 55L underslung grey water tanks with drain tap and extension hose.
No front swivel mount but quick release bolts fitted so that you can relatively easily flip the seat round anyway.

Fully insulated with vapour barrier and super-quilt insulation roll throughout which is frankly amazing stuff! 24” TV on swing mount installed.
Loads of storage under the bed area for camping, climbing or whatever gear you want to take with you!
6 x plastic storage boxes included which make great use of the under bed space.

The sliding door is unfinished on the inside, curtain is fitted but not been carpet lined or insulated yet, I have the carpet lining and adhesive ready for it though and will include.
I was going to have it raptor painted so have sanded it back to matte and done a few bits of filling and sanding on any minor dings so it is pretty much ready to be painted whatever colour you want – this van even be organised for you before collection for an additional cost and deposit.
