I’ve always loved camping and wanted to convert a van so we can enjoy travelling together as a family. Here’s how I got back on the open road…
Where do you start converting a van into a campervan from scratch? Jason got stuck in and transformed an 18-plate Volkswagen into a fully functioning campervan with bespoke specs in just three months.
We were pretty impressed to say the least as Jason told us how he completed the conversion.
I did everything myself, from cutting out the windows and insulating the floor and walls to doing all the electrics. I even fitted hot running water and a fresh water tank under the van.
We’ve got all the mod cons to make it a really efficient, enjoyable space. We’ve got a fridge, a gas hob in the kitchen, a double bed with a garage underneath to fit the mountain bikes and walking kit… we’ve basically got everything we need to go completely off grid.
Not only does the campervan have substance, but it’s also got plenty of style too. It’s kitted out in bespoke Chesterfield sofas to make sure Jason’s family can enjoy the cosiest of camping trips!
A bespoke project needed bespoke funding
Jason needed to buy a reliable, good quality van but he also needed to find extra cash to help him complete the conversion. That meant car finance was out of the question, as he needed full flexibility on modifications.
A Novuna Personal Finance loan was the perfect solution. Easy to fill out and complete an application, with a simple fixed-rate monthly payment plan in place to make spreading the cost of a big project much easier.
With the money he needed ready to go, Jason could crack on with his project hassle free. He even found out that the completed campervan is now worth more than he invested in the conversion, meaning he could make a profit on the project. For now, though, we’re sure Jason’s far too busy enjoying his travels to think about selling his precious family campervan!
Trips to the Lakes, Scotland and Wales are already ticked off… so the next stop’s Europe. We hope Jason and his family enjoy making a lifetime of memories in their fab new vehicle.
