Embarking on the open road, exploring hidden gems, and camping beneath the stars – the allure of camper van living is undeniable. While the idea of owning a brand-new camper van might seem tempting, the cost-effective alternative of converting your existing van into a camper offers a plethora of benefits. In this blog, we’ll delve into the reasons why turning your trusty van into a home on wheels not only saves you money but also adds a personal touch to your nomadic lifestyle.
Let’s start with the most obvious advantage – the cost. Purchasing a new camper van can burn a significant hole in your pocket, with prices ranging from £40,000 to well over £100,000. On the other hand, converting your van into a camper allows you to tailor the project to your budget and add in your own unique touches. Get Stowed can offer you a range of affordable products that enable you to customise your camper van without breaking the bank.
Converting your van provides the opportunity to create a space that suits your unique needs and preferences. Whether you’re a solo traveller, a couple seeking a romantic getaway, or a family with adventurous kids, a DIY camper van conversion allows you to design the layout, choose the furnishings, and add personal touches that reflect your lifestyle. Have a dog? We can even ensure you have the space for your furry friends too.
Easy Maintenance and Repairs
Owning a converted camper van means that you are already familiar with your vehicle’s ins and outs. This familiarity makes maintenance and repairs more manageable, potentially saving you on garage bills in the long run. Get Stowed offers robust and durable storage solutions to keep your camping gear organised, making maintenance a breeze. Whilst we don’t do full campervan conversion (e.g. plumbing and electrics), we can do the woodworking elements and work with you on your design.
