Vera is a Peugeot Boxer L3H2 and was one of my first big campervan builds. This project taught me a lot of valuable lessons along the way. When Vera first came into the shop as a standard panel van, there were only a few features the client was sure he wanted. But for most of the build, I pretty much had free reign.
The primary purpose of this conversion was, once complete, Vera would become a campervan people can hire for staycations. Together, we came up with the idea of a super simple space that would be easy to use. We also agreed that the van should be rustic, and have an earthy yet homely vibe.
The main features of Vera are the log burner from Salamander Stoves. This will keep all future occupants nice and toasty on those cold winter nights.
For sleeping arrangements, there is a fixed double bed and an additional single bed that folds away. Vera should have plenty of room to house a family when on an exciting campervan trip. There is also a beautiful copper sink and an outside shower.
This rolling home benefits from the ability to go entirely off-grid. The campervan features three power supply systems; solar, split charge and mains hook up. It also boasts a 150-litre water tank that pairs nicely with the room sealed Forcali boiler, providing occupant’s hot water on demand.

The idea was to make Vera feel like home no matter where you are. With a Smev oven and grill, two ring gas hob and a compressor fridge freezer you are certainly in for a comfortable stay!
When Vera was all done internally, we decided to go the extra mile and match the exterior to the earthy vibe on the inside. The stunning funky-forest artwork was completed by hand by the incredibly talented artist, who is also a good friend of mine, Aerosol Art.
