Conversion Description

Zinnie is a recently converted VW T5 ready to be driven away on an adventure. Perfect for off grid living or campsite touring for a solo traveller, couple or (as we are) a family of 3. This van has been professionally handcrafted (by a quirky camper listed provider), with great attention to detail. The three of us drove Zinnie from Somerset to Sagres and back, and we all fell in love with him.

Insulation – All panels have 9mm foil backed self adhesive neoprene applied and all voids packed with recycled plastic insulating wool.

All doors and drawers have press button handles/locks for security while travelling. The worktop is a 22mm solid hardwood kitchen surface.
