Conversion Description

We are a couple who have now converted 3 vans, our Instagram @Vanderingaround shows the whole process of the build and previous builds, please have a look.
This stunning Toyota Townace camper-van is truly one of a kind. It is a Japanese import and only a few made it to the UK, so if your looking for a fun, unique camper like no other then this one is for you! We purchased the van back in 2018 and completely stripped it back, repaired and updated the whole van fixing any current or potential issues, so it is now in tip top shape, ready for adventuring. Hundreds of hours have been spent getting it to how it looks now and it really is a fantastic vehicle/home.
The van is a diesel with the option of 4 wheel drive with the push of a button, this makes it so much more versatile than your regular VW camper, we have taken it through boggy fields with ease. It is a fun and reliable vehicle to drive, we have driven it to France and back with no problems but turned plenty of heads on the way.
The inside had been designed and built by ourselves, we have replaced the out-dated 80’s plastic interior and have gone for a lovely wooden, slightly rustic look with modern hints. We have left the build basic so you can add your own touch.

240v mains hook up
