At VisionTech, we’re constantly working to deliver the drive-away dream, where our clients know that we’ve taken their preferences, lifestyle dreams, and creative ideas, and turned them into the kind of campervan that they can call their own – even if, and it happens more often than you might think, the brief isn’t always clearcut.

In this campervan conversion guide, we’re sharing some of the most important areas to consider as a customer, so that we can bring to life the vacation dreams that are driving around your head.

Budgeting

Nobody likes to think about money first when it comes to breathing life into their dreams – but let’s be practical for a moment. Campervan conversions cost money – although not as much as buying a brand new campervan from a retailer! And that’s not the only benefit.

When you opt for a campervan conversion over a brand new market model, you get to tailor parts of the build that you might otherwise have no say in, whether it’s the colour of the seats or the way that the beds and storage areas are accessed.

What kind of vibe are you going for?

When customers know they want a tailormade space but aren’t set on any of the finishes or details, this is the question we fall back on.

Knowing the kind of vibe that you want to create within your campervan can help with everything from layout to decorative accessories and everything in between. Between knowing how the campervan is intended to be used, where and how often you plan on using it, and what kind of experiences you hope to live from the comfort of your campervan, we can build up a pretty good picture of what will work for you. Trust us, we’ve been doing this a long time!

What are the priorities in terms of details and features?

This is a question best answered by those who are going to be using the campervan – after all, every client is different, and we all have our own priorities and little luxuries when it comes to what makes the perfect vacation.

Because of this, we are always interested in learning more about what your priorities are as a customer – what are non-negotiables, and which areas of the brief are more flexible. For instance, if the ability to see the stars from inside your campervan is an absolutely must, then our low profile elevating roof will be a priority feature. If you want a base camp from which you can indulge in local adventures across the UK and beyond, comfort and accessibility will be key. If you’re planning on using your campervan for long stints on the road, storage is important, whereas for those travelling in winter, heating solutions shouldn’t be overlooked.

There’s a lot to think about when designing your perfect campervan, and the more you can communicate with us the easier the process.
