FAQs

DO LOVE CAMPERS RENT VANS?

No, we used to do rentals but we don’t anymore. Sorry!
We carry out many Micro Camper and Small Van Conversions which make a great vehicle for weekend trips and holidays.

WHICH VAN SHOULD I BUY FOR A BASE VEHICLE?

Buying a secondhand campervan in the UK can be a confusing business and lots of people get in touch with us for advice as we have so much knowledge on this subject.

We don’t sell used campervans, but we have written a blog post to help you out with this process – What to Look for When Buying a Second-Hand Camper Van. The blog post contains top tips for choosing your used van, and the most important things to look out for in terms of determining the state of the base vehicle. 

When it comes to sourcing a new or nearly new base vehicle for your camper conversion, we can do all the hard work for you. Some of the base vehicles we recommend include the VW Caddy Maxi, VW Transporter, VW Crafter, Mercedes Sprinter, Nissan NV200, Citroen Relay and Fiat Ducato.

SHOULD I GO FOR A SMALL, MEDIUM OR LARGE CAMPER?

It’s important to think about what you’ll be using your campervan for. Ask yourself these questions before buying a van:

  • How many people will it need to sleep?
  • How many belted seats will it need?
  • Where will I be parking my campervan and how much space is available?
  • How much will the running cost of my van be?
  • What will I be using my campervan for – shorter frequent weekend breaks, longer holidays or something more long term?

A car-derived van, or micro campervan, is an excellent option for those that want to have lots of short breaks away in their vans. If you go for a micro camper, be sure to check out our Love Camper designs which work well for a micro camper: these include the Mandalay, Islay or Atlantis.

Still unsure of which van? We found this article from Free Solo Campers useful: Choosing the right van size.

Or get in touch with us and we can help you choose the right van. 

DO YOU HAVE FULLY CONVERTED VANS FOR A QUICK PURCHASE?

Yes we often have off-the-shelf campervans for sale. Check out our campervan sales page. 

CAN YOU HELP ME SOURCE A VAN?

Yes we can. If you would like to join our build queue we can help you to source your base van. Let us know by emailing us at hello@lovecampers.co.uk

We will need to organise a call with you to understand your budget and needs. 

CAN YOU FIT A VAN WITH A BESPOKE DESIGN?

Love Campers build campervans to our own specific tried and trusted designs. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our Love Campers design range. Our designs make the best use of the space available for maximum functionality. 

There is scope to add specified extras into your van to make it perfect for you, for example you may wish to add solar panels or extra windows. You also get the chance to customise the campervan interior with your chosen fabric, colour-scheme and wood finish options via our official Love Campers suppliers. 

Throughout the customer journey, we share our designs in more detail with you and make recommendations on what we feel would suit your needs best. 

We tend not to describe our conversions as fully “bespoke”, and if you have a very specific design in mind you may prefer to use a different conversion company or try building your own van from scratch! 

HOW LONG IS YOUR WAIT LIST?

As a small and highly experienced team our van-build queue gets booked up well in advance. Our build queue can be up to 5 months long. It’s worth getting in touch because sometimes things change and we can squeeze you in much sooner! 

Don’t forget that we often have vans available for sale that are ready to drive away, so we may already have something that fits the bill for you!

CAN I SEE YOUR VANS IN PERSON?

We love to invite potential customers to see our campervan conversions in person. 

We also frequently arrange video calls where we can show you the vans in the workshop and introduce you to the team.

We are always open for incoming enquiries via phone and email.

CAN YOU FIT A POP-TOP ROOF?

Yes. We are experienced fitters of pop-top roofs for a variety of campervans, including VW Caddy Campers, VW Transporters and Ford Transit Customs. However, we usually cannot fit pop-top roofs into a van which is already converted.

We fit a variety of roofs and are one of the few workshops in the UK who can supply and fit Reimo pop-top roofs. 

Find out more on our Services page.

CAN YOU FIT SOLAR PANELS?

Yes. We regularly fit solar systems into people’s campervans, and are recommended by Bimble Solar. As recommended fitters we know that the panels we fit to your van will be fit for your purpose whether you are looking for serious off grid time or just the occasional back up!

Find out more on our Services page. 

CAN YOU FIT EXTRA WINDOWS?

Yes. If you choose to have a full van conversion by us we can fit additional windows, including porthole windows. 

CAN YOU FIT A BED?

Yes. We can fit a Rock & Roll bed into your campervan. Our beds make the most of the space available and often fold away.
