Hand crafted VW campervan conversions and T5 conversion kits
At Cambee our aim is to combine beautifully crafted retro VW interiors with the practicality of a reliable modern VW T5. We convert VW transporters to create campervans tailored to your lifestyle. From a simple two berth camper to seven seat Kombi leisure van built for work and pleasure.
Cambee conversions perfectly blend the romance of traditional VW campers with the reliability and functionality of a modern class leading van. Built on the latest in a long line of the classic Volkswagen Transporter range, in our T5 conversions you drive a vehicle designed for today's roads, with power steering, aircon and heating. A Cambee will take you further and faster, in car-like comfort and safety, where the traditional bay-window or split-screen never could.
Cambees are not all power steering, air-con and turbo diesel performance, we have carefully mixed in soft timber finishes classic retro colours and funky fabrics to remind us why we wanted a campervan conversion in the first place. Its the same as its always been since the earliest split screen campers and kombis to provide a little mobile luxury while escaping in the coolest way possible.
Safety comes as standard at Cambee. We only fit seat belts to the highest quality rock and roll beds and our own unique design has been pull tested at the UK's leading test centre. Our bed offers class leading headroom, through space for surfboards, a huge removable under-bed draw, maximum comfort for sitting and sleeping plus simple removal should you need to carry more than a double bed in the back of your camper.
A practical conversion makes the best use of its space. Need more seats? Just clip in a buddy, with up to eight belted seats including rotating Double passenger seat, Cambee offers greater flexibility. So from school run to office outing, or from family picnic to continental getaway more seats means more usability and your bus goes from simple campervan to people carrier with tea on tap.
There is also a flip side to our campervans and that's the Flex element of the conversion. Add a Flex module to change the interior into a people carrier, a racked out kombi, a mobile studio/office, or just a plain van. The modular interior can flex itself around your work and lifestyle.
More than just style and performance, at Cambee we are committed to the highest quality of finish and components, from the Dometic fridge to the SMEV appliances, and even where you can't see it. We use Tri- iso multi-foil insulation to give our campers the equivalent of 210-mm of mineral wool insulation, which one of our clients tested in alpine winter on a ski holiday.
Looking for something off the peg? We usually have a few T5's for sale, either ready to go or part converted, giving you the opportunity to add a few personal touches. Rock and roll bed fabric, classic camper curtains, or extra comforts like a Propex gas heater or captain seats. From a simple 2 berth day van to 5 berth 4motion go anywhere off roader, we'll put the perfect T5 camper together for you.
Although we definitely don’t believe in cookie-cutting our campers, it doesn’t hurt to have a few guidelines to bear in mind when you’re designing one from the ground up.
The right interior depends 100% on how - and how often - you'll use your camper. From month-long adventures, to casual weekend jaunts, we’ve designed 4 models that have you covered.
Right from the outset we have tried to make the best use of every available nook and cranny by using clever design that doesn’t compromise on style or most importantly safety.
Built from classic robust materials such as Birch ply and Formica our furniture is designed to last a lifetime, what is more, being real wood it can be simple refinished with few coats of varnish once a couple of generations have had their enjoyment.
