Go Climbing in your Campervan

A customer came to us recently looking for a basic conversion of a van which she wanted to use primarily as a base for going rock climbing in Wales.

Here’s a few photos of what we did to a standard Vauxhall Vivaro to turn it into a small, but comfortable base from which to get around those Welsh crags.

This is the base vehicle, as you can see we haven’t done anything too special to the basic van apart from adding windows all around so that our customer can enjoy the view. We did offer to put a pop-top on, but the customer didn’t need it (as her plan wasn’t to spend lots of time in it).

Showing off the interior decor of the campervan, with plenty of room to relax and enjoy a cuppa after a hard climb.

The cooking facilities, with integrated running water means there’s no need for that long trek back to a motel just for a nice cuppa!

The all important rock and roll bed. Avoiding the epic of trying to drive home exhausted after a long day at the crag, in this van you can sleep at the crag ready to go again in the morning, or have a snooze in the back, during a break on the journey home.

What we actually do……

Good morning all, I thought I’d take today to share with you what it is we can do for you at Sussex Campervans.  There’s no denying that there are many campervan sales outlets and a lot that buy in campervan furniture to install into vans – but finding a company that takes a vehicle and turns it into your dream campervan, from scratch, in their on-site workshop is a little trickier – but we do exactly that.  We are fortunate enough with our workshop and our expert team that we can sit down with you, find out exactly what it is you want from your campervan and convert it to suit your needs. BUT, that’s not the only way to get your hands on a Sussex Campervan, below are the various ways in which you can become the proud owner of your perfect campervan…..


  • We have a small number of stock vehicles, ready for you to come, look around and take for a test drive.  We’d love for you to fall in love with one of our stock vehicles so much so that you simply can’t leave without it!
  • For those wanting a specific colour or layout, we have a few stock vans – ready for conversion.  Be it a VW T5 or Vauxhall Vivaro, If you see a vehicle here that fits your criteria, we can convert it to your spec within 4-6 weeks.
  • Alternatively, if you would like us to build you a full package – source a particular vehicle with a certain mileage – year of reg – colour – budget, then convert this to your hearts desire – we can do!
  • Lastly, if you already own a van that you want to have built into your ideal campervan – give us a call, we’re more than happy to put something together for you.
