VW Crafter LWB
‘Galivant’ is a fully off-grid luxury conversion, with high-spec, brand new appliances and bespoke fittings and finishes.
The van has two solar panels for maximum power capability, USB ports, heating, as well as gas safe water heating for the kitchen and shower. The shower includes metro tile style shower panelling and a black eco shower head fitting with filtration stones for a luxurious shower experience, as well as a brand new and unused Thetford toilet.
Everything has been designed with attention to detail and finish, including soft close cupboards with leather handles, bespoke upholstery, a padded fabric ceiling and headboard, port hole and shelving similar to a luxury yacht.
There is fitted kitchen that features a Thetford oven and hob, a 3-way fridge for off-grid adaptability and secure jars that can be unscrewed from the shelves to store tea and coffee.
There is extensive storage in the van, with every space utilised, including press-open top cupboards with gas struts and soft close. There is also step extension storage for dirty shoes and cupboards for books and towels.
There is an extendable bench seat, and rotatable double passenger seats which create an additional potential sleeping area or social area to eat and drink. There is a removable table for dining or work. More storage is hidden within the bench seating, including storage for dirty clothes.
A super comfortable kingsize width bed has easy access to light switches and movable spot lights, along with options to change the colour of LED lighting under the top cupboards, USB ports and shelving.
There is a switch panel at the front of the van, which lights up to show available power and an easy access cupboard to reach the inverter and main power switch.
The back of the van is covered by a removable insulated black out curtain with flap for a porthole which can be opened or used as a viewing window whilst relaxing in bed.
The garage area includes access to a 57 litre water tank, diesel heater (vented into the van under kitchen units for warm feet), water pumps and filter and storage.
The camper has a brand new MOT and 6 months tax and the cam belt was replaced at 100,000 miles (VW Crafters run to around 500,000 miles – a replacement cam belt is recommended after around 150,000, so the van has been looked after).
There is an underslung gas tank and grey water tank with tap. The leisure gas system has an external hatch, allowing gas to be topped up at petrol stations and means there is no need to replace or remove heavy tanks.
Finally the van features a gorgeous sun roof deck (on a Van Guard roof rack accessed by a Rhino ladder), which enables you to soak up the rays whilst adventuring.

It has been designed with attention to detail, comfort and finish. The van has two solar panels for maximum power to go off-grid.
The van just requires an awning and a decal to meet DOT standards. As graphics are so personal, the van has been left as a blank canvas for the new owner. Everything else meets DOT standards.
