Dan worked as a car technician for Honda both in the UK and abroad. He then went on to a specialist division of a UK Car Dealership network where he gained various skills in custom audio and Multi Media installations, working on and modifying and converting new Range Rovers, Mercedes and BMW’s.
VisionTech Automotive started trading in 2000, specializing in Vehicle installations of Audio Visual Systems and vehicle interior trimming and modifications. Soon building a strong network of Mercedes and Range Rover Dealership customers in the South of England.
VisionTech Automotive started converting T5 Vans back in 2009.
Debuting their first Demo van at the VolksWorld Show at Sandown Park. The aftermath of this led to many customers placing orders for Dan and his team to convert their vans, which very soon became a full time job in itself.
Over the past five years Dan has focused very much on product quality. Two main focuses have been our GRP, light weight pods and our electric M1 pull tested Rock n Roll Bed.
Dan has always been a VW enthusiast, and has owned T5’s since they first made an appearance in the UK in 2003. He has also owned a 1957 Beetle ‘Polly’ from his early 20’s. Polly made her first appearance down the drag strip this year after having a Porsche engine & air ride fitted.

We are also the only independent UK VW Campervan builder to be International. The opening of VisionTech Australia, is something we are very proud and exited about.
The team and I continue to invest into the design & productivity of our bespoke conversions. We believe the Construction, design & layout of our conversions, offer more storage space and are up to 75% lighter than a typical conversion. This great improves both drivability and fuel consumption, all helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
Design and technology is ever evolving and an on going aspect of our company.
We have also taken pride in our electric Rock ‘n’ Roll bed which are “In chassis” M1 pull tested, easy to use, efficient and a comfortable way to spend many a night in your camper. At the click of a button your rear seat forms a perfect bed, no fuss required. After a lot of investment and engineering, we now have a world leading product to be proud of. It is also designed to work in conjunction with the “Hilo” Elevating Roof System with a lower seating position than any other Bed. Allowing Maximum headroom in the vehicle, with the roof closed.
Our Lithium Battery Systems, are also constructed “in house” and when coupled with our Solar Systems, almost eliminate the need to hook vans up to 240v when camping.
