Choosing the Perfect Camper

There are hundreds of different base vans for you to choose from. Our experts have selected the best of these to be used in our workshops at Sussex Campervans. This is done through a complex and indepth process designed to select base vans based upon a number of vital factors. Each of our different van models offers something different and unqiue. We have put together a short video showing you the best base vehicles for campervan conversions.

Both have different advantages and disadvantages! It depends on how you plan to use your camper and where you plan to take it. We have a really useful video and article all about barn doors and tailgates.

We converted one of the first automatic Renault Trafic vehicles into a camper and now provide this as an option, meaning that the whole Sussex Campervans range is available with a choice of automatic or manual gearboxes. Take a look at our video that explores the pros and cons of automatic camper vans.

Each of our campervan models provides something different. See a full breakdown of the different campervan model conversions we offer.

While we don’t convert vans you may already own, we can offer you something better. Take a look at the following article that explores Converting Your Van.

Due to such high demand for bespoke conversions, we are unable to accommodate partial conversion work and providing parts for van conversions.

The sky is the limit. At Sussex Campervans we pride ourselves in providing built to order campervan conversions. You can choose from plenty of colours, fabrics and wood finishes to completely customise your campervan.
