In 1990s:

  • Full and Part conversions - Specialists in Bespoke Designs

We became specialists in bespoke designs. We started our company doing both full and part campervan conversions,  gaining an immense amount of experience building bespoke van conversions since we began in 1991. We launched our own range of vehicle conversions based on the knowledge gained from that experience. Our range of vehicle conversions reflected the best features of the many varied designs we built and each model design was optimised to suit each particular vehicle. To offer the best choice,  customers also took advantage of our popular bespoke vehicle building service where conversions were uniquely customised to suit customers own specifications and needs.

  • Furniture and DIY kits

We handcrafted and built furniture using high quality lightweight laminated or veneered plyboard in a varied range of colours and finishes and with wood or plastic trims. We also built cabinets by the more traditional methods using real wood veneers and hardwood frames which were ideal for the executive motorhome. Furniture kits came ready assembled in the style of customers' choice ready for them to fit as part of their own DIY conversion.
