Looking out through Campervan Gwithian's kitchen out to a lighthouse and the sea

Gwithian

Gwithian is a cosy, comfy home from home, with room for two to sleep, three to travel and at least six to sit around the table.

His cheery décor makes every day feel full of sunshine, and specialist insulation will keep you warm, too.

He has a full kitchen with a fridge, reclaimed gas hob, grill and oven, and it’s stocked with herbs, spices, oils - even recipe books.

And when it's time to sleep (or to cuddle up and watch the stars), the table converts into a luxurious king size memory foam bed.

Conversion Story

Gwithian was an extremely well looked after double glazing delivery van working out of Plymouth, found after much searching and given a new lease of life as a campervan. This is our first conversion and as such has all the benefits of research and months of discussion about the best way to do everything, from insulation to windows to lighting to power to cooking! We love this van and would happily take off for 12 months in him if work allowed!
