Minty is your very own time machine. Step into this cool, modern VW T5 and get transported straight into a 70s diner! Her retro orange and green interior will take you right back. Every last detail has been thought of, from the glorious floral 70s kettle to original 70s handles and coordinating fabrics throughout.

Minty has 5 belted seats and thanks to her pop-top, can sleep 2 adults and 2 children. All this comes in a compact package; anyone who has driven a T5 will tell you it’s not too different to driving a car.

So why not chuck your beach towels in the back, slip into her luxuriously upholstered seats and drive off to another place and time.

    Conversion Story

    When I was little girl we had a much loved VW camper, in the true seventies style- green and orange. My memories of this van inspired Minty's interior design. She is modern and cool on the outside and retro and fun on the inside. Her units are painted in the exact same colour (with an added handful of sparkle) as Herbie the most famous VW. I also included original 60's and 70's VW grab handles and the classic VW tail badge on the top of the internal units. The door handles are imported from the states, it was the only place I could find exactly what I was looking for. My house is full of white my van is full of COLOUR! She is my little retro diner who creates conversation where ever I go...
