At Van Life Creations, we combine years of experience in the design industry with a passion for creating high quality adventure vans. Our owners, Chris and Heather, started to create campervans for themselves during lockdown as a bit of a fun project. Coming from an industrial design background, Chris previously worked designing high spec exhibition vans, mobile showrooms and bars, and had always dreamed of using his expertise to make himself a camper.
We try to stay away from “Rustic” and focus more on creating light and airy spaces, with that signature “Van Life” aesthetic. All of our vans are manufactured to last. We primarily use plywood in the construction of cabinets due to its structural integrity and ability to cope with varying conditions in moving vehicles, and we have access to CNC machinery to create designs and builds that will blow you away. Our skills in CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Manufacture) set us apart from the crowd, making sure our builds are sound and precise even before they are manufactured.
We have only fairly recently set up as a professional conversion business and only take on one van at a time so we can give it our full attention for the duration of the build slot. We have experience in creating vans to suit an active life style, focusing on being hard wearing, capable of holding lots of sports kit (including fully kitted out bike storage lockers), creating a sociable space, and, of course, nailing the aesthetic.
We offer van conversions using your base vehicle, although we can help you source a vehicle if you’d like. Our full conversions start at around £17,000, and go up to around £35,000 depending on the vehicle size and specification (e.g. heating/hot water, electrical systems) although we are happy to discuss a conversion to suit any budget. Feel free to get in touch and we’ll talk you through designs and what we can offer you!
