Who Are We?.. Happy Campers!

“It’s amazing to see those happy camper faces – we’re changing people’s lives and we love that,” Lol Harmer.

Base Campers was started by two friends – a product designer from Cornwall and an engineer and flooring specialist from London – who have spent 20 years travelling and living in converted vans.

We don’t just build and sell campers, we use them, so we know what works – and only the best will do.

Everything is custom-made and done in-house with a meticulous (almost obsessive) attention to detail. Sub-standard pre-fab packs and MDF are banned from our workshop, but high-end materials are standard, like Superva (lightweight furniture board), and VW Rusty Lee Rock and Roll beds.

Every retrofit is different, so the first question we ask you is: “What are you going to use it for?” Then we can make sure the design suits your needs.

After many years of part building my own campers and using conversion companies for the hard bits.., Base Campers is by far the best conversion company I've experienced. They truly understood the camper design I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them!

James Peterson, VW T5

It was really fun getting to know the boys during the project. They were all helpful in answering my questions and made me feel at ease. The conversion ended up being twice as good as I could've envisioned!

Jeff Gnockly, VW T4

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Thanks for your good work!
