Great conversion! Why did you choose to do this rather than buy and customise an existing camper/california ?

I forgot to ask, did you source the van new? It looks immaculate.

That's a lovely van, i'm thinking of making the leap to a T5 myself but the biggest thing worrying me is insurance, any advice?

Good evening both. Perhaps a silly question, but what tool did you use to "punch" the perfect holes in the carpet (where the panels clip in) or are your just wizards with scissors ?? I have tried a hole puncher, but that can not cut through the carpet…

Absolutely amazing, and inspiring! How much did the van cost, if you don't mind me asking? Also, what VW T5 model is it and where did you buy it from? πŸ™‚

Hi again. How did you fit the U-trim at the barn doors? Did you stick the carpet inside the 'U' and then glued the side of the trim to the door somehow?

Hi. What a FANTASTIC job you have done! A few questions if I may… 1) Where did you get the ply panels for the side (over the wheel arches from)? 2) What is the lovely floor you chose called? 3) What is the worktop on the EVO units called? Thanks for a very inspiring video!

Greetings from Jordan! Viewing your build is truly inspiring. Do you guys plan to add a pop top in the future? Also, where did you get the kit for the VW? Do they happen to sell kits for other VAN conversions?

Great conversion, best I've seen. Think the bespoke kits help to make it look like a professional job

Amazing job! I know you got the bed from eBay but do you mind giving the name of the seller?

Hi there, love this conversation. I like how you carpeted over the window cut to the outside of the van to give a nice look inside. Can I ask, did this not make the glass want to sit off the side of the van? Thanks
