    Just about to acquire a nearly new T32 LWB and am looking for suggestions/recommendations for conversion companies to speak to up north...I’m in West Yorkshire but happy to travel to get the right supplier if need be.

    Vehicle already has external upgrades (wheels, splitters, sides etc) and a HiLo roof so just looking for the interior and associated tech. I am looking for an absolutely premium finish, the best on the market!

    I had Merseyspeed do me a full lining insulation\soundproofing, diesel heater, rear windows, rear speakers, leisure electrics, flooring, halo roof etc. I am really impressed with the work they carried out and would defiantly use them again.

    Check out 8 ball campers in East Riding, they mostly do their standard configs but can do anything. I’ve just had mine converted (standard) and very pleased with the result

    If I lived where you do and I had money to burn I'd use Status 1, without a doubt. Their work is incredible, albeit very pricey. I really wanted them to do my conversion, or buy one of their converted vans.

    They do look nice and have cupboards above the sink and across the back as standard something I found to be a little unusual for converters standard spec builds. This was one of the reasons I went with 8ball.

    The exclusive spec seems to fit the bill when it comes to price ;)

    I think if I was going for a no holds barred conversion I would look out for the truly bespoke converters. This was not what we looked at at all as wanted to get all the basics done first then if we wanted we could upgrade or adapt from that base (and we couldn’t afford it!:D We couldn’t afford it anyway tbh:rofl: )

    Status 1 quoted me 25k just for a conversion! :laugh: to think I bought a 2 year old fully converted van for not much more :whistle:

    My budget was blown from the very start after I spent 10k more on the base van:whistle:

    Thanks everyone.

    During my shirt but intense research period and whilst looking for ideas, these guys’ work looked excellent, exactly the kind of style I am looking for...
    VW Transporter T6 T6.1 LWB Dreamaker camper van conversion
    Typically, they are located in one of the furthest places away from me that I could find!!

    Campervandals in Wakefield

    If I had all of the monies though i would be taking it to new wave conversion! Not north by any means (they are north of Cardiff if that counts?) but there stuff is off the chain!

    Mine is currently with AJC Glossop. Andy who runs it is very helpful and goes through everything with you.

    He will build the van to your spec, so you can have it as bespoke as you like....

    Would definitely recommend.

    I had a lot of dealings with AJC prior to giving in and going with a company more local. Every communication I had with them was brilliant, friendly but professional and incredibly knowledgable. Seem to love what he does as well.
