New SWB T6.1 Custom Conversion
Peter and Sara from Wrexham brought their brand new VW Transporter T6.1 to VW Worx for a full custom conversion. Take a look at all of the features in the video below.
Deciding what to include in your new camper conversion is often a challenge as there are so many options to choose from. From features to finishes, Peter and Sara knew what they wanted included, so the VW Worx team got to work transforming their van into their dream camper.
The van was stripped out ready for it's big transformation with holes being cut for the new pop-top roof and the side windows. The panels were soundproofed and insulated and the seats were removed for re-upholstering.
The inside was lined with 3 way grey stretch carpet and new custom panels were made and lined with cushioned suede to match the new headlining, including an embossed pattern and VW logo.
The camper was fitted with a Planar diesel heater, pop-top roof and full glass down both sides. The front grille was painted in gloss black.
A new set of diamond cut alloy wheels were fitted along with a set of side running bars and a black awning rail.
The pop-top roof was finished in matching grey paint and a grey canvas with 2 side vents and a front window.
The seats were re-finished in soft, two tone grey leather with headrests embossed with the VW logo. Behind the passenger seat is an adjustable occasional table.
The 3/4 Tested Original 'Rusty Lee' rock'n'roll bed was finished in the same leather and units were built from gloss zebrano and light grey lightweight ply.
The bed board in the roof was also trimmed in cushioned suede with an embossed pattern and VW logo. 4 'touch' LED lights were mounted into the board.
Cabinets had plenty of storage built in with LED lights in the plinth and under the counter top. Colour change LED lighting strips illuminated the counter tops and over the side door.
As well as a low voltage fridge, the kitchen also has a stainless sink and double gas hob. In the unit under the sink are slim-line fresh and waste water containers.
The electronic power system charges the leisure battery which, in turn, powers the lights, appliances and USB sockets. There are also 240v power outlets and reading lamps.
The rear and side windows were all fitted with blackout blinds.
Peter and Sara were over the moon with their new camper and took it straight to the beach after they collected it, saying they were "Absolutely overwhelmed with the job Craig did on our conversion....you've given us the dream van...We wouldn't have gone anywhere else"
We wish Peter and Sara many happy adventures in their new camper and look forward to hearing about all of the places they have visited in it.
