The travelling Peaches AKA (Maria) contacted me May of 2021, looking for someone to make their dream come true.They had attempted to convert †heir van but found it just wasn't going to happen with lack of tools & experience.
Their passion is camping and travelling, and they were looking for something more comfortable, warm, dry and somewhere to make a tea and a hot dinner.
I don't think I've had a customer that was as excited as Maria, Matt & little Louis :)
On top of that they have big plans to have a fleet of campers which is very exciting!
Peach has a diesel blown air heater, solar, fridge freezer, lights, dimmable bedside, lights, sink, cooker, lots of storage large storage under the bed, freshwater tank, pull-out table seating three belted seats in the cab, a double bed two children’s beds (or a slim adult ) and a shower water supply at the back doors.
The van itself was built with mostly reclaimed wood. This is something the client wanted but also something that I specialise in. I use palettes, leftover wood from the neighboring farm, anything I can get my hands on and renew. Each piece has a story and I love the fact that I am recycling as much as possible.
Peach is currently for hire so if you'd like to give van life a go contact The Travelling Peaches @the_travelling_peaches
After looking through Quirky Campers and having a look at the van builds he had already completed it was an easy decision to make when we found Craig to build our dream campervan!
From the very first phone call it was clear to see that Craig knew what he was doing and that he was experienced on designing and building vans. We explained to him just what we wanted and he contributed a few of his own suggestions that meant our van was going to be a one of a kind, custom built van…and that is exactly what he built.
Throughout the build Craig stayed in contact to ensure that we were always happy with the decisions we had made and was more than accommodating when we made a few last minute changes.
Extremely resourceful and creative, Craig has used his knowledge to build our campervan to an extremely high specification and we couldn’t be happier with it if we tried!
We shall indeed be shipping our next van Craig’s way to build another beautiful campervan for us.
