Homesmith Campers provides bespoke conversions designed specifically for your own personal adventure with a focus on electric, gas free, off-grid capabilities.

We are a family business which evolved from many years of travelling, in particular, a year-long adventure travelling across Canada and America in our converted van. We learnt pretty quickly what works (and what doesn’t!) when living full time on the road as a family of four. Experienced travellers and van lifers, we are able to offer practical advice whilst working with you to help tailor your van to your needs.

With years of experience in property development and a passion for small scale off-grid living, Homesmith Campers offers a complete service,  allowing you the opportunity to own a campervan that is as individual as you are.

As a retired RAF Officer of 16 years,  James has adventure at the heart of everything he does.   Now a qualified carpenter and electrical installer, he ensures attention to detail and craftsmanship at every level.  Having navigated the world from a suitcase for 14 years as British Airways  Longhaul Cabin Crew, Sarah is passionate about travel and excellent customer service. She knows how important it is to meticulously create small spaces of comfort for every journey and understands the specifications required to live comfortably and work effectively on a small scale. We pride ourselves on utilising these skills along with our passion for van travel to offer unique solutions to clients’ needs.  Travelling in our van enables us to not only offer practical advice but also to remain in the forefront of the ever changing face of adventuring overland.  

∗∗∗∗∗  “…..You were both an absolute delight to work with. Nothing was too hard or too much trouble…..Your lived experience exploring the world in a van was invaluable in helping guide us through the build and getting us ready to hit the road. We loved that you were just as excited as we were about our van and our upcoming adventures. This is clearly a passion for you both and it translates into your work and how you run Homesmith Campers….Yukon is our dream van. The quality and craftsmanship of the build (and the fixtures and fittings you sourced for us) is exceptional. We’ve had countless people knock on our door to complement our ‘good-looking’ van and ask for a tour…..”- Kasia & Scott


∗∗∗∗∗“…..James and Sarah’s personal experience of van dwelling and general adventuring, along with obvious expertise and a passion for what they do – not to mention friendliness – were immediately clear…..The build quality and attention to detail that James has achieved is extraordinary.…..We’re still discovering little points of detail that we marvel over, but more generally are just delighted with the experience of working with James and Sarah, and to now own such a functional, technically accomplished and beautiful van.  If you’re searching for a campervan conversion company owned by people with integrity and passion, producing work of the highest quality, then look no further than Homesmith”- Tommy & Rachael


∗∗∗∗∗  “…….If you’re planning your dream camper then I can recommend Homesmith without reservation. James has been a total pleasure to work with from start to finish which has made the entire experience massively fulfilling, stress free and great fun……The result – everything delivered with meticulous planning, clear scheduling and transparent costs. What a total joy.  My finished van is utterly wonderful, beautifully lit interiors, thoughtful attention to detail, practical application, lovely craftsmanship and everything in its place.”  – Rachel and Pete.


∗∗∗∗∗“….The end result is better than we had imagined……We had meetings with a number of converters and the stand out qualities that helped us decide on Homesmith Campers were the very personal involvement of James & Sarah, from the beginning they understood that the conversion was very personal to us and they also made it personal to them… is most definitely great value for money and we are delighted with our decision to work with James & Sarah…..”- Alan & Claire


∗∗∗∗∗“…..James’s enthusiasm, knowledge and “can-do” attitude shone through and we knew we’d got the right man for our project…..The workmanship is outstanding. We would thoroughly recommend James and Sarah to anyone who wants a campervan that is individual as well as stylish……Homesmith have been a joy to work with.”- Rod & Di


∗∗∗∗∗ “…….after meeting James and Sarah, seeing the passion they have for their work, took the plunge. And we are so very glad we did…..they very quickly worked their magic and produced a wonderful ‘home from home’….. From start to finish he was a truly fantastic professional…..It was a true ‘partnership’  We are so glad we took Sandy to James and Sarah, it’s been a truly exciting journey….” – Julie & Chris.


∗∗∗∗∗   …..We are so pleased with the final result. James hit every part of our brief and his suggestions for changes or alterations have all turned out to be correct. Overall we could not recommend the service, communication or final build highly enough….- Micheala & George
