We are skilled at maximising the limited space in caravan / camper installations with innovative solutions and are happy to work on both vintage caravans and modern vans.

If you have a vintage / retro caravans and are looking to outsource part or all of your restoration project we can help with any of the following components:

Wall / ceiling panels

Vintage caravan internal panels generally suffer from moisture over the years, and replacement can really transform the look and feel of the interior. We can use a range of specialist caravan trim panels to re-line your van following the original methods with resilient coatings built to last.


Electrical work


Caravans can have 240v or 12v electrical systems or a combination of both. We are experts at both troubleshooting existing problems or designing modern electrics. This includes fully off-grid solar systems, or hybrid systems with supply or charging from 240v, solar or a towing vehicle. We can also rewire vintage caravans as-is if you want to retain the full vintage feel but with modern cabling.




Caravan floors generally don’t age well, and visually a new floor can have a dramatic effect on the interior. We offer a range of flooring solutions from floating wood / laminate finishes, to vinyl layers for a slightly softer feel. Below the surface caravan floors are generally either plywood or foam-sandwich construction which can both develop issues over the years.




Vintage caravans tend to have a lot of smaller windows with many rivets, seals and winding mechanisms to fail. As caravans weaken with age the flexing of the body can cause glass windows to crack. We can replace and or fix window parts (including fabrication of aluminium parts) and also replace glass panes with modern acrylic and new seals.


Interior Furniture


Wood effect cupboards can look good, but too often they contribute to an unattractive dated look. We have full woodworking capabilities to replace furniture components that have deteriorated beyond use, and can also re-coat laminate furniture with specialist restoration finishes to give a new bright look to your furniture.   We are also experienced at maximizing the usability of small spaces and can work with you to design folding tables / beds and other innovative features.



Similarly to electrical systems, plumbing can either be via town water with a hose connector on the caravan, or off-grid with a water tank mounted under the floor (or a combination of both). We can work with you to design the right plumbing solution appropriate to your needs, with matching pump and taps. We can also install additional outlets if you want to use a gas-heated outdoor shower.


Upholstery rarely looks good after 10 years, and the choice of replacement material (retro or modern) can be a key factor in the overall look of your van. We can sew replacement covers (with zips for removal / cleaning) in your chosen material for bedding and seating.


Please call / email us to discuss your needs – we are happy to visit you to look at your van and provide free, no obligation quotes.
