VW Campers and the Volkswagen Transporter T5

Did you know that most VW campervan converters are actually British (albeit a number of the component parts are likely to have been sourced from Germany)? They use a standard panel van and convert it into a fully working campervan that is tailored to your individual interior furnishings, equipment and layout needs.

It is over 60 years since the first Volkswagen Transporter went into full production, with the latest incarnation, the Volkswagen Transporter T6, being launched in 2015.

Numerous campervan converters specialising in bespoke “elevating roof van conversions” using the VW T6 as the base vehicle e.g. Danbury, Devon Conversions, Hillside Leisure, Jerba Campervans, Leisuredrive plus of course Bilbo’s, who have been building Volkswagen campers for over 35 years! (One notable exception is Wellhouse Leisure, with their Hyundai i800 and Ford Terrier camper conversions).

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles do actual produce their own camper van, the Volkswagen California (and California Beach) model range – a stylish campervan (with a price tag to match), that has a pop up roof and can comfortably sleep up to four adults.

With “fixed roof campers” and “high top van conversions” you are more likely to see a larger base vehicle e.g. the Fiat Ducato, Ford Transit, Peugeot Boxer, Mercedes Sprinter or Renault Master being used by campervan manufacturers such as Adria, Autocruise, Auto-Sleepers, Murvi, Timberland, Tribute and Wildax Conversions to name just a few. The long wheel base van offering more diversity in terms of the kitchen, lounge and bed layout.
