Quote from the Builder

We love helping facilitate this way of life for everyone, including families, this van can sleep up to 5 if required! There is a lot to squeeze in, and safety elements to consider, but with a little compromise it can be done! Even better, our partners Vanny Campers commissioned this build for their prize draw competition and a family won it for less than 7 pounds! That truly was the icing on the cake for this special build!
