Do you love natural wood and beautiful prints? We thought so.

Morris is the ideal van for a couple, or a couple with one child. He has a stunning wooden interior executed by a master carpenter, which is beautifully complimented by the William Morris print tiles and curtains and quirky nautical features. Total comfort is provided by the pocket sprung mattress and Eberspacher heater, plus the blackout blinds which mean you'll sleep like a baby.

The kitchen is well equipped and spacious, not to mention simply beautiful, and can easily accommodate two people cooking side by side. In fact you could probably squeeze a couple of Morris dancers in while you're at it!

Morris is built with sustainable and locally sourced materials, he is a true celebration of British materials and craftsmanship

    Conversion Story

    Morris was converted by the amazing Joe Clarke (Campervan Craftsman). It used to be a white delivery van, and is a stealth campervan as it is inconspicuous on the outside so it can be parked up overnight without drawing attention. It has two solar panels and two leisure batteries, and can be used off-grid, as well as having electric hook up. Inside, it is beautifully fitted out with a wood interior and lovely features. Morris is a family and friends van project that took around 4 months in 2017. Joe did all the design, beautiful woodwork and fitting. Phil chose the Eberspacher heater with air con for summer, and added nautical touches like the gimbaled oil lamp and barometer. Justin loves cooking and kitted out the kitchen. Neil is a sound engineer and installed the superb sound system with Alpine speakers so that even us lot can work it. Georgia is an artist and she helped choose the fabric, and her lovely gold leaf and flower painting hangs in the van. Helen took care of the folding mattress and tiles. We all use the van regularly and keep adding to it and improving things.

    Each step of the way with Joe we have tried to source things locally and from sustainable sources. The ash and oak are both sourced from a local timber mill near Shepton Mallet, both are sustainably grown in the UK. The insulation is a mix of 75% sheep’s wool and 25% natural recycled fibres. It is a compressed form for travel, and reduces transport impact by more than 50% compared to other natural insulation and makes. The curtain fabric needed to be a high polyester content to avoid mildew spotting so we chose a heavyweight ecocanvas made with 45% recycled content.

    Morris is built for comfort. We used to hire vans for festivals, and realised we always ended up leaving the bed down, so a comfortable bed and a removable adjustable table with stools seemed a good solution. Morris has a Super King Size Pocket Sprung mattress, and a freshly laundered mattress cover and fitted sheet is provided each time it is hired. There is an Eberspacher heater that runs off the diesel, and provides easily adjustable warmth in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. There are black out blinds / curtains on all windows, ensuring a good night's sleep. There is a fridge, cooker, sink, and removable table, so you can travel in comfort.
