Handcrafted Mercedes Sprinter build with re-claimed and ecological materials as possible.


We wanted to create a unique interior which maximised the available space in each living area, while making it feel comfortable and homely. The van is fully insulated using eco sheep’s wool insulation with vapour barrier. Using beautiful reclaimed solid pine floor in kitchen & oak vinyl flooring in rear, with Iroko worktops and Oak details set this off against the white walls and ceiling.

The raised floor at the rear of the campervan has been constructed using lightweight aluminium box section, which is strong but very light. It is supported along the centre ant there is no feel of bounce when walking on it. The raised floor has the water tank, pump, heater and battery all accessible by hatches.


Our campervan was designed and built in Cornwall to be a home on wheels, with everything you would need for either a long weekend away, or for longer tours exploring the great outdoors. Having just completed this conversion, we have decided to put the conversion up for sale due to moving to a new house. The raised floor at the rear of the campervan has been constructed using lightweight aluminium box section, which is strong but very light. It is supported along the centre ant there is no feel of bounce when walking on it. The raised floor has the water tank, pump, heater and battery all accessible by hatches.
