Most classic Campervans have been restored at some stage and it’s normally the roof canvas that either gets forgotten or neglected and a badly worn or canvas can let down an otherwise great camper.
Using traditional methods we can safely remove your old canvas and replace it with new version to suit your budget and style.
We work with canvas manufacturers and suppliers to help you achieve the best results.
In December 2018 we were asked by Heriatge parts centre to fit the final ‘prototype’ of their new VW T3 Westfalia canvas before it goes on general sale.

A good solid wood floor is very important when converting a van. It provides a good smooth surface to install your chosen interior, and also to apply your chosen floor covering.
It is recommended that a 9mm or 12mm Birch ply is used due to its strength and resistance to water retention. This can either be cut to fit in house, or we can have CNC Cut floors supplied.
We prefer to use ‘ALTRO Contrax’ or ‘ALTRO Walkway’ flooring surfaces as we have used this on many vans to great effect. It comes in many colours and styles and

Carpet lining is used to cover interior metal surfaces and provide a uniform finish in a campervan conversion. It can be used on the walls, roof and door panels and is applied using a high temperature resistant adhesive to ensure it does not peel off on a hot day.
Lining carpet comes in different colours and textures. We have different examples in stock for you to look at as well as other products to help you decide which colour combination to choose from.

Used in campervan conversions to provide a smooth interior surface, plywood lining can be used on the walls, roof and door panels of a van. The lining can then be covered in a specialist carpet or any other material you wish to create your ideal van interior.
Lining panels can be either custom made on site or supplied by companies using CNC cutting machines to ensure a uniform finish every time.
Sound deadening and insulation
Whether you currently own a campervan, or you wish to have a campervan built, having good sound deadening and insulation in the walls, doors and floors is vital.
Every van is built primarily as a commercial vehicle, meaning that when built they were fitted with little in the way of luxury.
Older campervan conversions, despite being built by professionals, were fitted with insulation that was meant for your home. Over the years, this becomes wet through condensation or leaky windows, and setlles in the bottom of the panels. This in turn leads to rusty panels, and no heat retention.
Technological improvements have meant that sound deadening and insulation is not only more effective at keeping heat in but does not soak up water.
We work with specialist suppliers to provide the right materials for your application and budget.
