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.

Time for a Campervan Spring Clean….

Surely, by now, you’re starting to daydream about your upcoming Easter/Summer adventures in your campervan – the weather’s getting there! But before Spring hits us with a bang (we’re forever optimistic) it’s probably worth just taking half a day or so to get your campervan in tip-top shape with a Spring spruce-up and because we know you’re campervan is a precious baby – we’re not going to be using any nasties on it either!


Cleaning Upholstery

  • To clean stains from the ceiling, carpet and upholstery in your campervan, mix a paste of bicarb’ and hydrogen peroxide (available at most chemists). Put 1/2 cup of bicarb’ in a small dish and mix in hydrogen peroxide by the capful until you have made a thin paste. Dab the paste onto the stain and let it sit for 2 to 3 hours. Remove the dried paste with a soft bristle brush, then vacuum the rest of the paste off with a vacuum that has a soft bristle upholstery attachment. Repeat the process if the stain is still visible.

    To remove grease bunnies, dust bunnies, dirt and debris, use a vacuum with a soft bristle attachment. You can also use a tape-style lint brush. Lint rollers easily snag debris from the ceiling when you don’t feel like getting out the vacuum.

Cleaning Windows, Blinds and Vents

  • To clean the windows, blinds and air vents in your campervan, all you need is an old sock, a small paint brush and some all-purpose cleaner. Put the sock on your hand and mist it with all-purpose cleaner. Slide your sock-covered hand between each slat of the blinds to wipe them clean. Then, use the paint brush to brush between the slats in the air vent and down the track of the windows. To clean the glass on the windows, make your own glass cleaner by mixing 1/3 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup water in a 2 liter bottle. After adding the ingredients, add water until the bottle is filled. Pour some cleaner into an empty spray bottle, mist the windows and wipe clean with a paper towel.

Cleaning the Exterior

  • When it comes to cleaning the exterior of your campervan, use a pressure washer if possible. Oftentimes, spraying your campervan down with a pressure washer removes dirt, debris, bugs and grime on its own without the use of an actual cleaner. You can also add 1/3 cup vinegar to a 5 gallon bucket of water. Vinegar helps clean your campervan, leaving it shiny and spot free. If all else fails – get out the bucket and sponge!

Once you’ve finished, leave your campervan to air for as long as possible – windows and doors open, then stand back and admire your hard work!

Rain Rain Go Away – Or not!!

Today’s not so glorious weather has got us looking out of our window, rather grateful for not being caught in the middle of the downpour!  It’s fair to say everything is getting a good soaking, courtesy of the Great British Spring time weather. But if you put off heading out in your campervan due to this kind of British offering, have you ever considered the addition of an awning?


An awning can open up a whole new side to your campervan – quite literally, adding a new room, extra storage space especially for muddy boots or wet gear,a shelter from the rain or even the sun, however, choosing the perfect match for your needs can be a bewildering process; having the right information to hand can make this process a little easier, so we’ve put together a brief video to hopefully clarify any questions you might have about campervan awnings…..


If you have any other questions, or would like to get in touch with us about which awning might be best for you – you can always give us a call on 01403 336369 – we’d love to be able to help keep you a little drier this Spring.
