My name is Andy, I began this website in 2019 after completing my first VW camper conversion called Roly.
A 2007 Long Wheel Base T5 Transporter with a brand new conversion kit just hitting the market to develop a whopping 30% extra space in a VW camper. I’ve only ever come across the mega-bucks Double Back conversion to match this sort of space.
In 2022 the opportunity came to actually buy the conversion business itself and begin selling these DIY Conversion kits – full details here.
The genius design came from Stuart Mills from MEV in 2017 as a super-cool way to get lots of extra space in an already-tight VW van but having a double bed that literally rolls out the back, a roof that pushes up, and tightly-packed kitchen units and storage to save every square inch of space.
Full credit as well to Steve, who first took on the conversion kit with his own SWB T5 conversion here with the complete kit.
Also, a tribute to my dad Philip. Unfortunately, he is no longer alive to see Camper Escapes in full fruition. He loved cars and inventing new things which have inspired and taught me over the years, including George as a fun machine for the local village carnival in Derbyshire over the decades.
