I would like to start with there is no right and wrong with choosing your base vehicle to convert, that’s be honest we have all seen everything from a Citroen Berlingo to a school bus modified to accommodate, eating, sleeping, traveling.
As a company we have to design to specific platforms as all our pre works are completed in CAD models handed over to us from Volkswagen Germany as we are listed as a body building with Volkswagen. Below is our preferred models to work on, this is what we order from factory time and time again.
Volkswagaen Transporter T28/T30 (I find the T32 suspension very uncomfortable)
Short wheel base chassis (We love the overall appeal ,style, drivability and compact look of the SWB model)
Highline option package (providing you all the car like features)
Colour (you can probably tell from our base vehicle we love the vibrant colours you dont see everyday)
Tailgate rear door (providing extra shelter and a more styling look from the rear)
Single passenger seat (sourcing one of these to retro fit can be extremely difficult and will costa around £1200)
DSG (Huge fans of the Automatic here a NWCC, making those long trips so much easier on the road)
150BHP (Yes the 199 will give you more power but the 150 performs perfectly and delivers excellent MPG)
All our prices are based on the T6.1/6/5 Kombi vans if you have purchased a panel van the packages will increase slightly due to no buy back on rear seats and glass will need to be built in to the quotation.
If you would like to take advantage of our Factory discounts then please contact us and we will be happy to place you in contact with our sales reprehensive who will do his upmost to source your required base vehicle.
The extras I tick on the order forms are Factory navigation, heated front seats, Multifunction steering wheel, power latch slide and tailgate doors, glazed tailgate with wash wipe, but again this is only our personal opinion we understand every client is individual and has different budget constraints to design to.
