After visiting Newwave Customs and witnessing the impeccable quality of their work, workshop facilities and customer service from Mike and Linzi – it was a no brainer choosing them.
The priorities for us were to retain the van for every-day use, have decent boot space, allow access with both twin-sliding doors, plenty of storage options, an option to cook, plenty of power for festivals and rough camping, an upgraded sound system and finally, the rainbow stich. After an indecisive start on our part – Mike’s guidance saw us through. He made it clear that anything was possible, told us exactly what would and wouldn’t work – but at no point gave the hard sales pitch. His friendly, no-nonsense approach was a breath of fresh air and we can’t thank him enough.
We opted for a Multi-purpose conversion with a twist. The RIB seat is positioned 300m forward which solved the boot-space conundrum. This enabled us to swap the drawer fridge for a portable fridge that we can position in the boot or the van living space, which created more under seat storage. The team then designed a compact pod to position in the living space which houses a compact cooker and we opted for a solar panel which provides more than enough power.
A few extra’s topped it all off; Webasto heater for cold nights, Eton speakers which make a massive difference, alcantara roof surround, white wood roof liner and rainbow stitch on leather seats which is subtle but really distinctive. The team have created a versatile, functional, unique campervan that oozes quality throughout, tailored specifically to our needs and we’re absolutely chuffed with the end product. Perfect for our young family lifestyle.
Collecting the van was actually quite touching and we really felt a sense of pride from the whole team. Customer service at it’s best, real value for money with a mind blowing attention to detail.
Thanks to Mike, Linzi and the Team! Here’s to future memories……….
“We hope the Gallagher family have many happy years In their newly converted vehicle, Please don’t be strangers.”
