For those living in the UK, one of the very best campervan converters is Chelmsford-based Vanpuravida. One of their latest builds is "Henry," a bespoke camper conversion with an unusual layout that enhances comfort and functionality. It has been crafted for a couple and their two dogs and comes with some unique features tailored to their specific needs.
Built using the company's signature Himalayas layout, this van conversion includes a front bathroom with full-size shower, a beautiful mid kitchen, and a rear fixed bed built on a raised platform that creates a large garage underneath for storing bikes and adventure gear.
The spectacular interior design is characterized by earthy and natural tones with beautiful woodworking details that give it a tinge of rustic style. To create a warm, inviting ambiance, the designers used a color code of gray, brown, and natural wood for the furniture pieces, while the walls and ceilings are immaculate white to keep the interior bright.
As you walk in, there is a small cabinet for shoe storage, which is very convenient when you return from outdoor exploration with muddy shoes.
Right next to it is the stunningly designed bathroom, which can be considered fairly spacious for a van. It includes a full-size shower with wall panels with 3D tile effect and a composting toilet, enough to meet the owners' needs in terms of personal hygiene.
For a good night's sleep after a long day of adventure, the rear sleeping space is fitted with a queen-size bed with a premium mattress and reading lights. In an attempt to create defined spaces, the team added a dividing wall made of narrow wood slats between the kitchen and the bedroom area.
A couple of cabinets above the feet area offer clothes storage, but other than that, this space is only dedicated to sleep and relaxation. With the van's back door open, the owners can enjoy the surrounding views, birdwatch, or stargaze at night.
At the back of the van, you will find the spare tire and a ladder that provides access to a large rooftop rack. Henry can also be used for off-the-grid living, as it is equipped with two solar panels for a total of 320 Watts, a Victron inverter, a 30-liter underslung LPG tank, a Whale Heat air heater with touch control panel, and an electric 240V water heater. For the owners' water needs, there is a 90-liter fresh water tank with external filing point and a 45-liter waste water tank.
The Himalayas conversion layout can be built on LWB Sprinter Mercedes or Crafter Volkswagen L3H2 chassis and starts at £39,990 (which is approx. $49,860) without the cost of the van base. With its unique layout that combines comfort, practicality, and functionality, this custom van conversion can serve as inspiration for those who are starting on the journey of building their own dream adventure rig.
