Campervan conversions explained

What is a campervan conversion?

When searching for a camper van for sale, it’s easy to get lost in all the specs and promises of the different manufacturers. But essentially, it’s simple: a camper conversion is the refit of a van (often a Volkswagen) that’s already in decent condition.

Whether you’re converting a nifty little van or a deluxe motorhome, the fundamentals are the same. The vehicle needs a bed, some kitchen equipment, some electrical wiring and, ideally, a shower facility to kit it out for its new role.

At Rev, we completely refit each of our Volkswagen vans before releasing it for sale. We remove all the interiors and redesign the van from top to bottom, with the same level of detail as if we were redesigning a room in our house.

Can I live in a campervan?

Yes, you can! Each camper van for sale in our range allows you to live in it. All three of our Volkswagen camper models come with a bed and kitchen area, and you can also install a shower point in the smaller models (it comes as standard in the larger ones).

In fact, the ability to ‘live on the road’ is one of the most powerful arguments used by camper van and motorhome sales firms. Many people now use their camper vehicle to live a nomadic lifestyle, travelling the world and taking their job with them (this is particularly appealing if you work freelance or your company allows remote working).

What are the best campervans to buy?

Well we’re a bit biased, but we don’t think you’ll find a better camper van for sale than Volkswagen. Its vehicle fleet is renowned for its durability and Volkswagen has been at the forefront of the  motor homes sales market for decades with its sleek, stylish and reliable van range.

Each camper van model has its own strengths and weaknesses, and there are plenty of other motor companies, including Fiat and Peugeot, that offer excellent motorhome options. But we genuinely think Volkswagen is the most attractive proposition out there.

What equipment do I get in a campervan?

Each camper is different, and will come with its own unique specification. However, a good van should include a bed and cooking area, and some essential washing facilities.

At Revolution, each camper van for sale in our range has a bed and a kitchen area, and even the smallest vehicle in our fleet has an optional shower space (this comes as standard in the bigger van models). We’d be delighted to chat with you about the features that you want in your vehicle at the outset of the sale process.

Can I design my own campervan?

With Revolution, you certainly can! Unlike a lot of camper van and motorhome companies, we ensure that every vehicle we release for sale is as unique as the person driving it.

In fact, each camper van for sale in our fleet can be customised to your exact specification. Using our design technology, you can alter the colour scheme and finish of your camper as well as adding extra features and accessories. It’s a key part of our sale process and one our customers seem to enjoy!

What are the advantages of a Campervan versus a Motorhome?

This is another of those questions we get asked all the time. In essence, the boundaries are pretty blurred: although a motorhome is usually built on the chassis of a bus rather than a van, and and the cab is separated from the living area, the two tend to overlap.

In general, those seeking a motorhome for sale will tend to want slightly more room, whereas camper fans will be seeking something a bit more dynamic and flexible, which can be used for more spontaneous excursions. 

Although there are plenty of good motorhomes for sale at the moment (at good prices too) if you’re part of the ‘jump and go’ generation, we’d definitely advise you to get a camper van — and a Volkswagen van is perfect.
