What is a conversion van?

What exactly is a conversion van?

A conversion van is a normal passenger van that is customised with a number of extra features to refit the van for a new purpose. The changes are usually made by a third party manufacturer, who can make a number of changes to the vans structure, interior, design and facilities. A number of common conversions for vans include travel features to accommodate disabled passengers.

Are there any benefits to conversion vans?

A major benefit of owning a conversion van instead of a motor home is that whilst you make better use of space available to yourself by increasing a number of design elements, the exterior of your vehicle will stay the same size as a regular passenger van. This is a huge advantage for drivers who don’t hold a license for larger vehicles yet they still want the big vehicle experience. Some drivers need the extra space in their vehicle, yet they don’t like the idea of an oversized vehicle: this is where a conversion van is perfect.

Conversions vans have a number of benefits…

Just what can you add to a conversion van? There are a number of add-ons you can select for your personalised conversion van experience. Some vans have a customised roof that not only looks aesthetically amazing, but it allows gives the benefit of extra storage space as it increases the vertical capacity of the van. Common features of conversion fans are:

  • Entertainment systems
  • Seatings
  • Beds
  • Dining area
  • Speaker systems

Besides having a number of travel benefits, conversion vans can be designed to meet the requirements of disabled passengers and drivers. A number of changes can be made, all to aid the owner in their requirements. Electric lifts can be fitted also in order for disabled passengers to both easily enter and exit the vehicle.

A number of modifications can be added to your conversion van, whether it be a whole redesign of the vans interior or a simple change, the van can be redesigned to suit nearly all needs of its owners. Lighting, entertainment systems, beds, consoles, DVD players and other accessories can all be fitted.
