Northern Conversions Ltd specialise in building bespoke, handcrafted campervan conversions. We’ve got a real passion for building campervans so every single build is given the love and attention it deserves. We also sell come of the products we use in our own campervans, including Solar, heaters, fridges etc – check out our website for the info.
We’re completely customer focused and believe that each camper should be unique to suit its owner – so every part of your campervan is fully customisable and you will receive regular progress pictures and communications to talk about the finer details throughout the journey.
We’re based in the north east of England, just north of Newcastle Upon Tyne, with our workshop set in a rural environment with a real rustic charm which helps to inspire our builds.
The team consists of 5 individuals, our master Campervan Craftsman (Marrick) comes from a background within the commercial motor trade, having years of experience repairing, restoring and maintaining various vehicles – from trailers and classic cars to welfare vans and HGV’s. He has the relevant qualifications to work on vehicles and their electrical systems as well as working with wood for years, building kitchens, decking, house renovations and of course building campervans! We’ve got 2 other full time campervan craftsmen, then there’s Laura, who focuses on the design and operations, along with running the show & chipping in with the builds when she’s free! and the part-time workshop dog, Charlie.
We currently build around 8-10 bespoke campervans each year, although only around half of these are full commissions. Our business was founded before Covid spiked interest in campers, so we’ve got a good foundation and knowledge of all aspects of campervan building – from hot water systems, to full bespoke carpentry, complete electrical systems and everything in between
A couple of our previous conversions are available to hire through Quirky Campers below:
Cordelia – The first Quirky van with 6 berths and a shower! *Now retired, replacement coming May 2023*
Tyson – The first Quirky van with a shower which is heated using the engines wasted energy.
Tiny Tim – An awesome little camper using mainly recclaimed wood, giving it a beautiful rustic feel *Now retired, replacement coming 2023*
We also offer one off consultations with customers to discuss smaller jobs or self-build projects. We complete partial conversions including installation of windows, heating, gas systems, water systems, electrics and finishing off self build campers which have had their conversions halted for whatever reason.
Every full camper conversion will come with a full landlord gas safety certificate, weigh bridge ticket and is “Quirky approved” from standard, which also gives the ability to rent the camper out through Quirky campers!
