With the sun shining and summer 2017 upon us the Thomas family were extremely keen to have their VW T5 kombi converted into their ideal motorhome. Having visited a number of conversion companies the life long dream was to secure a build with a convertor that could bring their dreams to a reality; With Team NWCC booking into late 2017, it was looking unlikely that it was going to happen this year, however it did. As we have previously done in the past we offered the Thomas family the opportunity to leave their vehicle with us for 6-8 weeks instead of the normal 3-5 weeks, this allowed the project to be worked on as a ‘Hospital Job’ along side other builds scheduled in house.
Having had childhood experience of camping, Mrs Thomas wanted to offer her children the same free spirited outdoor lifestyle available to her growing up. Mr Thomas was of the same opinion however also wanted a big ‘Boys toy’ and took enjoyment customising the aesthetics of the vehicle. To allow the family enough room for their adventures and the space to accomodate the lifestyle, an SCA elevating roof has been installed for extra sleeping capacity and head height. This build demonstrates NWCC’s Traditional Lux camper conversion, inducing all the latest leisure industry product launched for 2017.
Each build that goes through the NWCC workshop is considered for change, this can be due to new product launches or new ideas being developed and all is considered to be included. This build now includes the double strip lights with dimmer switch, offering a cleaner brighter light source within the vehicle. One strip light is located within the underside of the nearside SCA roof pelmet and the other to the underside of the over worktop shelving unit.
Every client build is further customised with their choice of upholstery, audio additions and exterior accessories. To allow a larger ‘base’ for the family whilst enjoying their holidays the extension of the Fiamma F45s awning is a fantastic addition. The awning sits perfectly on the deep black body of the transporter. With any vehicle we recommend extreme care is taken to maintain the oem showroom exterior finish, having owned their vehicle for a few years the paintwork had light scratches and swirling within the body, the NWCC team now offer a full paint correction service which brought this vehicle back to new!
