  • Fair enough. Only cheaper if you aren't factoring in labour cost though.

    Have you seen these? kits https://www.cambee.co.uk/campervan-kits/­

    Seems like an effective way of running a conversion business if you can draw up a CAD file when you do a model of van and the reuse it.

    Given how much these go for and the cost of the sheet material and fittings there must be a decent margin. https://www.cambee.co.uk/shop/product/cl­assic-kit/

  • most laser cut/CNC ply designs leave me a bit cold tbh. Those Cambees are nicer than some though.

    I think my main gripe with them is that they all end up looking basically the same. They are meticulously designed in CAD (which obviously takes a looooong time) in order to reduce the construction time as much as possible. Its no surprise they only offer 1 van type with little customisation available aside from a few easy to change options.

    I really enjoy and want to concentrate more time on the carpentry/bespoke design side. Ideally every van will be totally different to the one that preceded it. Want a perfectly shaped space for a surfboard/bicycle/pet/canoe/hang-glider/­baby? sure thing

    (I'm aware these are the naive wishes of someone who hasnt actually made a viable business out of it yet...)
