Mo

With her clean lines and elegant styling, Mo’s skandi-style, fresh interior wouldn’t be out of place in a Copenhagen apartment. As it is, she is an ingeniously designed and masterfully executed campervan with room for up to five adults. The perfect marriage of functionality and style, featuring all mod cons including solar power, toilet and all-year-round insulation. She is ideal for families and groups of friends alike, or with the simple removal of the top bed, ideal for couples too.
Mo has an airy feeling of space and calm. So much love has gone into her details, from the vintage china teacups to the artwork on the walls to the brass piano hinges on cupboard doors.
You’ll love the clever design that creates space for masses of storage and includes zone lighting (so you can cook or read while others sleep) and handy fold-down shelves. Best of all, with both beds full width and 6 foot or more in length, even the tallest campers can sleep in comfort.
comfy, warm and loads of nice touches.

Conversion Story

After years of owning a dinky caravan that we loved but which had such a tiny bed that we couldn’t get a good night’s sleep, we wanted a fully functioning, off the grid, luxurious space that would comfortably accommodate tall people and be warm enough to use all year round. So we sadly said farewell to our beautiful caravan and got to work on realising our vision: Mo! Mostly Andrew was in charge of the research and building and I did the interior design, but everyone in the family helped - even the children Harry and Hetty, learning along the way! We had lots of laughs but some fall outs too, of course! Each weekend Andrew tirelessly worked on the van whatever the weather with no lists or drawings, as amazingly everything was in his head. First the van was fully insulated ("There will be no cold spots in this van!" Andrew preached!) then all the electrics - wires everywhere, incredibly confusing – and Andrew and Harry worked together to fit the solar panel and roof light. Electricity allowed us to work late in the dark winter months with a fan heater to keep us warm, although with all the insulation we could only use it in five-minute bursts before breaking into sweat! We taped the floor to create a map of lines where future furniture would be placed, and spent two days cladding the walls with tongue and groove. Soon the van was really starting to take shape: safety flooring down and furniture ready to be put into its rightful new home. The furniture was carefully crafted to our designs by a local joiner using marine plywood because we love its blonde look and clean lines. Hetty and I designed and made the soft furnishings and spent hours searching for the perfect accessories. We're absolutely thrilled at the end result. Mo has been truly hand lovingly made by ourselves from start to finish! Last but certainly not least, we named Mo after my late mother, who was a hippy at heart and loved to travel, encouraging all her four daughters to do the same. "Go travel the world," she'd say. Her vivacious love for life, fun, laughter and spirit will travel with the van wherever it may go.
~ Danielle, Andrew, Harry and Hetty
