Conversion Description

We’d like to share with you our beautiful new Mercedes Sprinter LWB conversion, The Captains Rest, a light & airy space that really feels like a tiny home on wheels.

The Captains rest has a Scandinavian feel to her, though equally you feel like you’re in a beachy surf retreat or hinterland cabin. Everything has been made by hand and the internal walls (with the option of a curtain) really gives the illusion of having two separate living spaces.

As you come through the side door of the van you enter the kitchen/ bathroom area, straight in front of you is a big corrugated shower with rustic copper taps and herringbone style, saloon doors.
Inside the shower is a Thetford porta-loo so you can use the toilet in privacy. There’s a water heater on board so you have the option of hot water too.

The Kitchen is made up of light weight ply cupboards with thick reclaimed countertops; there’s a lot of space to cook on, a two burner gas hob, fridge and a big copper sink. We’ve divided the cupboards with draws and shelves and there is a big shelf on top of the cab accessible through the back of the van for extra storage. By hiding a lot of the facilities, these cupboards are mostly empty, for example the LPG tank is stored under the van and refillable by hooking up in garages (its super cheap too) and we have a dial inside the van which shows you how much gas is left in the tank, the waste water is under the van too.

All the electrics are stored under the passenger seat and accessible through a false back in a cupboard, the 12v system has an inverter which allows you to plug in 240v appliances. The leisure battery is charged through a voltage sensitive relay (when the engine is running) & a 100Watt Solar panel on the roof. All fuses and access points are easily accessible and lab led should a fuse blow.

This area of the van also has a opening side window and extractor fan/ skylight for plenty of ventilation when cooking or taking a shower. This fan can also bring cool air into the van. The Van is heated by a diesel heater controlled by a thermostat and has a remote switch.

The bedroom and living area is fresh and cosy, with lots of seating and different options of how to arrange the bed. Theres a great swivel table thats detachable & the linen curtain create a perfect bedroom sanctuary.

Throughout the van you’ll notice we’ve placed copper lights & rails, hung wooden blinds which allow lots of light in but along with the tinted windows give you some privacy. There are six spotlights which can be dimmed and two different USB charging points. We’ve chosen a beautiful array of wood and upholstered the cushions, dyed in a stoney lilac colour. There are plenty of shelves and places for you to store and decorate the space too.

We are welcoming visits and test drives, if you have any questions please feel free to call us on 07523988477. You can also get in touch with us to request more videos (please watch the youtube links) of the space and If you provide me with your email I can forward all photographs, there are lots more.

The bedroom and living area is fresh and cosy, with 6ft long sofas on each side for plenty of seating. By creating a fold away bed we’ve really utilised the amount of space which is essential when living in a van, its amazing to have a walk way and be able to access through both doors. Under one half of the bed there’s a huge cupboard and in the other half there is a 100Litre water tank and some more storage.
We’ve designed the bed so that you can create a really large bed (big enough for atleast three adults) with the whole space or there’s the option to pull a 4ft length of the bed out to create a double and still have a seating area remaining. The swivel table in the van can be taken apart and used as a base to create the final section of the bed. This gives the further option of leaving the bed up permanently, should you wish.
