The perfect all-rounder

The 2 or 4-berth Drifter is our most popular conversion! It’s the perfect all-rounder because it includes almost everything you would need.

Its versatile design leads it to be able to accommodate a diverse customer group. This is due to the clever balance of space/storage and seating/sleeping capacity. This design is great if you are planning for both short and long-haul journeys. The downstairs bed width is 112cm (3.6 ft) and the bed length is 193cm (6ft4) and the upstairs (pop-top) bed size is 110cm in width and 6ft1 length with a payload of 250kg.

This is the ideal camper for families or those who want some extra space. With the additional sleeping option in the pop-top (which the children will love!) it makes camping comfortable and easy.

What's inside the Drifter?

This configuration is available to install into VW T5/T6/T6.1, Ford Transit Custom and TVP vans.

Pop top Down

We can and have fitted many different types of pop tops to many types of vans over the years meaning our knowledge is extensive across the ranges. We particularly like the West Dubs product as it offers great quality with many customisable and colour options including canvas, whilst maintaining an affordable price. Please get in touch for all options

Image

Seating

The normal width of a 3/4 is 112cm and 2 belted seats and 2 integrated headrests

With many different options for beds, we stick to 3 types to help make your decision easier. The number 1 most popular and industry favourite is RIB Altair offering a fully crash-tested frame combined with an M1-tested galvanised metal plate for the van underside. These offer a very versatile design with many great benefits. We can also offer Smart Beds and Streamline beds which can suit all budgets.

Switches, Lights & Electricals

With a 105ah AGM leisure battery safely secured under the driver seat connected to the main van battery via a Victron Orion Smart DC-DC charger (for Euro 6 engines) and a Victron Blue Smart IP22  BATTERY CHARGER for external hook up (240v to 12v) also charging the leisure battery this combination is hard to beat.

It doesn't end there - we also include a compact 50L 12v compressor fridge, multiple LED lights, USB charging port, battery monitor, 12v sockets and 240v sockets also with the add-on option of a 110watt Solar panel. We ensure that we have got all areas covered so you will not go short of power or charging points. We ensure all our 240v electrical equipment is tested and certificated to ensure we are meeting all current regulations.

Image

Flooring

Altro flooring is non-slip, hard industrial covering that is a must for any Campervan. With muddy boots/paws and wet wetsuit you want to make sure that the floor is as tough as it can be. 

Image

Insulation

We have found that the best combination is Thermoliner (made from cross-linked closed-cell polyethylene foam) applied onto all inside panels which provides excellent acoustic insulation as well as thermal insulation too. Then covered over the top of this is Dacron a non-absorbent, non-flammable insulation. We offer other options for this depending on requirements too, so worth discussing with us. 

Image

Hob & Sink

Twin burner hob and fresh cold water sink. With our in-house qualified gas engineer, this means we can ensure the gas system is installed correctly, certificated and safe. 2 main options for the gas system are the underslung LPG tank and the internal gas box system (please see extras). The water system is onboard fresh water 12-litre container which is easily accessible for refilling.

 Privacy tinted glass is the most popular choice for any van conversions and we work very hard to ensure we have an outstanding supplier relationship to ensure we only fit the highest quality possible.
