New Addition To The Dales Campers Hire Fleet

In News by Dales Campers

The latest new addition to the Dales Campers hire fleet has just arrived!

It might not look much like a camper van at the moment.  But, trust us, in just a few short weeks this plain old VW Transporter will be transformed into a perfect little house on wheels.

Before work has begun on conversion.

We thought you might be interested to follow the process.  Here’s how it came to us. A used but still nearly new commercial vehicle, fresh from its duties as a working van.

We carry out the conversion ourselves at our sister company Thistle Rose Leisure.  This has the advantage that we’re in control of the process from start to finish.  Most importantly this means we can make sure that the conversion quality meets the high standards that we expect for our hire customers.


Our first job is to strip out the interior board lining, before it heads off for a new paint job.  The paint job takes about  5 days, so it will be a while before we get to see our chosen colour scheme in the flesh.   Watch this space to see what we chose!

When it comes back to us work begins properly.  We’ll start by cutting the body shell to put in new windows for the living space.  And we’ll also cut out the top of the van to put in the elevating roof.  These are some of the most dramatic changes so check back to see the pictures as we complete this stage.

Eventually we stop cutting and start adding! Fitting all the kit in to make it a perfect home from home.

Available To Hire Soon!

We’re aiming to have this van ready to go out for its very first hire at Easter. If you’d like to be the first customers to take our new van out, book your Easter holiday now for your chance.  We can’t guarantee it as we allocate vans according to availability, but let us know if this is your preferred van and we’ll do our best to help.
