Hi our names are simon and sue from Eastern England
We recently converted our NV into a campervan based on the standard VW T5 layout. Have posted a few pictures for you to see.
Hope you like them ;)

Hi Simon & Sue, Nice to see this......... where are the pics? Am I being stoopid?

Have you been out many times in it yet? and how does it work as a camper any afterthought which are a 'must have' any thing you would change?

Hi Mudflap,
I'm a bit new to all this so I put the pictures in the photo gallery. Have been to north wales for a week and Brighton for a long weekend so far but the conversion was only finished about 8 weeks ago so haven't had much time . It works well as a compact campervan and probably the must have item is the awning we brought for it. Gives you much more room to store stuff when camped. Can't think of anything I would change as yet but like I said we've only been out a couple of times so far

Cool, just found it, I really like it.

Can you give me a rough price breakdown for the conversion?

Was this work done by yourself or a converter?

The roof and windows were supplied and fitted for £2,700. The seat/bed is M1 crash tested and was supplied and fitted for £840. The fridge, smev 9222 sink/cooker, leisure battery and split charge relay/mains hook up, power management system and all fittings were £1,100. The ply, table, gas bottle, lights flooring and all the bits and bobs came to about £800 so in total just under £5,500. Apart from the roof and bed all the work was carried out by myself at the weekends and took about 6 weeks to complete

Did you purchase the conversion as a kit except for the seat and roof? I really like the conversion to your camper. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Hi, I am having my NV200 converted to a campervan and would like to buy a drive away awning for it but have asked several suppliers who said that the sliding door would catch on the awning. Where did you buy your awning please and does it work ok for you?

Hi really interested in your conversion as I am having my van done at the moment. I need a drive away awning to fit to it. Do you know of any that will fit these vans please? Also do you have a porta loo in your van?

We have just bought the ready made Lunar conversion (vacanza). Only had it for a month so far but seems generally ok. One anoyance is that Lunar chose to make the gas locker only fit the campingaz R904 (1.8Kg) bottle so we are confined to butane and expensive gas. We cannot use our dumpy calor propane (3.9Kg) alas.

It came with an awning that attaches to the back with magnets and inflates with an onboard electric pump which also serves to inflate the bed.

The first thing I noted driving over December is that there doesn't seem to be an external temperature indication to warn of ice which has been standard on every car I've had for the last 20 years. Is that an NV200 issue?

Yes Sir, thats one of the funny features of the NV200: No outside temperature indicated.
