The Perfect Match

I constantly work to improve and enhance what we do, so that we can provide a tailor-made campervan that’s ideal for you. We will take the time to find out about you, the adventures you are planning and how you will use your campervan, so we can create a perfect match.

You may find a stock vehicle that suits you, or you might choose one of our layouts and ask us to customise the upholstery, furniture and accessories to build your bespoke campervan. Either way, my team and I will work with you to get everything right, down to the last detail. When you’re happy, let’s do the paperwork. To secure your order we’ll ask for half the final price as a booking fee. This enables us to buy the base van for you and reserve the workshop time needed for the conversion. From that moment on, we can swing into action and manage the whole process in-house. 


Experts in our field

Take a tour of our workshops and meet our expert upholsterers who make beautiful seating in wonderful colours and finishes to suit your taste. Say hello to our talented cabinetmakers who hand-craft our furniture in strong, sleek finishes. Meet our bodyshop manager and integration workshop manager, who will convert the panel van into your beautiful well insulated pop-top campervan. Take a look at our unique bed systems, which are fully approved and guaranteed to give you a great night’s sleep.

after-care service

When we’ve built your campervan, we’ll ask for the balance a couple of days before you collect it. On the day you come to collect your van, we’ll be as excited as you are! Our thorough handover will ensure you know exactly how everything works, from putting up the pop-top roof, to converting the seats to a bed and putting the kettle on. You will leave our workshops full of confidence.

When you join the family of owners of Sussex Campervans we will be just a phone call away and happy to give you advice.

We offer:

  • A helpline
  • 12-month warranty on the vehicle (if not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty)
  • 36-month conversion warranty on everything we have built
  • Annual habitation servicing
