Our most popular campervan conversion is our Pioneer Plus model. That’s because it has everything you need to utilise as a campervan, with also some subtle exterior styling options that

Yes, so long as it is built by a reputibale company. Buying a campervan is investing in your future holidays for the next 3/4/5 years (however long you intend to keep the camper.) They can be used for days out, weekend breaks and full weeks touring country after country - and the value to you is only limited to how often you go out in it. Then when you come to sell it, the cash value can be released. Our customers find when they want to upgrade to a newer model, or when their circumstances change and want to sell the campervan, the depreciation of their campervan can be as little as £1000 per year, yet they've had one brilliant trip after another with it. So really that investment in future holidays has cost next to nothing.

There are many vehicle finance providers availble that can all quote for finance options for purchasing one of our campervans. You aren't restricted to just one provider linked to ourselves, you can shop around for the best deal.

All our camper_versions Pioneer conversions come with a 3 year warranty as standard, which covers everything within the conversion, inlcuding appliances. The vehicle will also be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty of up to 3 years, depending on when the vehicle was first registered. For example, a VW T6 Transporter registered on the 1st of Jan 2019, will have 2 years warranty remaining on the 1st Jan 2020.

In 2019 the DVLA stopped all vehicles being re-registered as campervans, if they had been converted from a panel van. They also increased the cost for the initial road fund licence for motorhomes from £240 up to £2,135! There is also another tax of £320 per year, on top of the annual road tax for the first 5 years, if the list price of the vehicle is over £40,000. In short, no it won’t be registered as a campervan, but nor would you want it to. Even if it was possible, there will be an increase in road tax, planned for re-registered vehicles very soon. This doesn’t affect using it, or the insurance covering it. When the DVLA stopped re-registering, all major campervan insurance companies changed their policies, to fully cover converted campervans to their true value, providing that the conversion was carried out by a professional, reputable company. So, it matters more than ever that you purchase from a professional campervan conversion company like camper_versions®, otherwise you may end up with something that you are unable to obtain insurance cover for.

Yes, it can. Its load bearing is 200kg, which is over 30 stones. Generally it would be used for children, as the additional poptop roof slopes down, so it does get narrower towards the rear of the campervan.

The T5, T5.1, T6 and T6.1 are all models of the VW Transporter, and they are related to the age of the vehicle.

T5.1 was from 2010 to 2015 and the T5 was released from 2004 to 2009.

The VW Transporter has been built as a commercial vehicle, designed to last hundreds of thousands of miles transporting goods up and down every country in the world!

One reason why your fridge seems to be on but isn't getting cold could be because your leisure battery doesn’t have enough power to turn it on. If you can't here the compressor powering up this is more than likely the case. If the compressor is powering, then its a sign that the fridge needs to be re-gassed.
