Before making the move into converting vehicles Rob was a professional carpenter for 20 years. During that time he took on many different types of projects including the full fit-out of a 60ft x 12ft canal boat, the conversion of a lorry into a mobile sculpture gallery space , converting an old 60’s coach into a temporary home for a festival manager and several carpentry jobs in various different camper vans and boats. And it is on these firm foundation that the campervan conversion company Barrell of Monkeys is built.
Rob runs the company from a beautiful farm and workshop space in the Somerset countryside with the help of his partner Tarry and their two young boys Freddie and Jasper.
Oh and also the dog (May) helps out as best she can!
Barrel of Monkeys create tailor made vehicle conversions for people who are looking for something a bit different; A mobile living space that enables them to express their creativity and personality at the same time as fulfilling all of the practical needs that the individual project requires.
We love our work and truly hope we can help you to realise your dream and get those wheels rolling and heads turning! We’ve already had a few of our creations liston on Quirky Campers including Saul and Deirdre with a few more to follow soon:)
We’ve had great feedback from those who have worked with Rob and Tarry, they have enjoyed the process and the result. The campervans they have created have also been popular with customers. We love their back to basics rustic style and use of reclaimed materials.
