With our bespoke conversion service, we will work with you every step of the way to design and create your dream campervan – ensuring your van is the perfect fit. All you have to do is provide the base vehicle and we’ll help you to turn your dream of embracing the van life into a reality!
Can’t wait that long?
Have a look at our
ready-to-drive campervans section to see if we’ve got one ready and waiting for you to buy today!
We’ll have an initial chat over the phone and send you our campervan conversion form to fill in, which will give us a good overview of what you want from your bespoke van build. We also need to know what make/model your van is (or we can give you some tips on which one to buy) – this is the fact-finding phase!
Once we’ve got the basic facts on your requirements, we will provide you with a written estimate. To give you a very rough idea – for a small van (low roof VW Transporter, Mercedes Benz Vito or similar) our campervan conversion fees start from £15,000. For larger vans (VW Crafter, Mercedes Benz Sprinter or similar) our fees start from £18,500. Once we’ve sent you the estimate, we ask for £1000 non-refundable deposit to confirm the order and reserve your build slot.
Now comes the fun part. It’s time for us (and you) to get creative and design your dream van – bring all your ideas along or let us help to inspire you from scratch. This can be a face-to-face meeting at our Devon workshop, or we can do it over a video/phone call. We’ll listen to what you like and how you see van life working for you. We’re passionate about good design and our bespoke van build service means we can design your campervan to exactly meet your own needs. We value unique, high-quality finishes, which is why all our bespoke van conversions are custom-built and fitted with handmade cabinetry, beds and bathrooms. Our preference is for natural wood-finish where possible, but we are here to make your vision come to life, so just let us know if you would prefer something a little different. We understand the importance of durability and that’s why all Nomads campervan conversions are fitted out with the highest quality materials for the job, to give you both design style and peace of mind on the road.
Following the detailed design phase, we will finalise your estimate into a final fixed price, less the deposit you’ve already paid. Along with the final costs, you will receive 3D CAD designs of the interior layout for approval. Four weeks before the build begins, we require 40% of the total cost to prepare the raw materials in plenty of time ahead of the build start date. The balance will need to be paid in three equal instalments throughout the build.
Once we have the final design and specification agreed, we can start the build. We will be in contact regularly throughout the build phase to discuss finer details and for photo updates. The lead time for the bespoke build is usually about three months, and you are welcome to pop by our Devon workshop anytime to check on progress.
Collect your newly converted campervan from our workshop and head straight off on the road to van life! Included in the cost of all our campervan conversions is our one year warranty that gives you peace of mind if any converted component were to fail outside of normal wear and tear.
