The Pod Van Conversion

Our campervan Pods make the ultimate weekender or clip-in day van.

The Pod – Built for Life

We’ve traded the full cabinets of our GT and Classic models for a bigger bed and a selection of simple pod kitchenette units in the Pod, for a spacious camper that’s geared towards weekend excursions and spontaneous dashes down to the surf.

Proving that compact kitchens don’t have to mean limited options, we fit long and short wheelbase, fixed and removable Pod units in a spectrum of cabinet colours. Each allows us to install the Cambee full width Flex 156, our roomiest 5’ x 6’3” R & R bed, or the Cambee double Flex 118, leaving a handy through-space for bikes, baggage or just a little more legroom.

This setup is just the ticket for sporty types seeking a van to carry their kit but not wanting to sacrifice their creature comforts, like tea and a hot meal at the end of an action-packed day. There’s huge clear space beneath the bed for boards and kayaks up to 8’4”/ 2.54m (SWB) or 9’10”/ 3.0m (LWB) (or more with a single front seat), plus a lifting rear panel making room for 2 to 3 bikes in the boot. All in all, space enough for a small army of action men to store their gear.

For those more inclined to relaxing than relays, the removable Pod unit can be set up for feasts al fresco under an awning or on a starlit shore.

Ticking all kinds of boxes, the Pod also acts as an ideal family run-around, with up to 6 3-point seat belts all M1 safety tested.

Make It Yours


  • Panelling: Take your pick of our easy-clean faux suedes or classic pinhole fabrics to put a personal touch on the body of your panel van.
  • Tri-iso multifoil insulation: We fit this space-saving 10-ply foil throughout to provide maximum protection from the elements whilst leaving space for the voids to breath.
  • Flooring: Lay the groundwork with Altro Walkway in a bright or classic shade, or branch out into our non-stock options.
  • Rear curtains: in your choice of matching or contrasting fabric with blackout backing. We hang these on aluminium rails for smooth running and fit the lower seams with magnets to eliminate light cracks.


  • Removable M1-tested Cambee double Flex 118 or full width Flex 156  R & R bed. Our thoughtfully designed seat/beds with 75mm of foam and super lightweight frame. Settle on the double or full width Flex, then pick a favourite fabric from our pattern books (or source your own).
  • Cambee Folding Table. Locking neatly out of sight under the Cambee Flex bed, our specially designed table offers surface space as and when you need it.


  • AGM Long life leisure battery and intelligent split charge system
  • 12V control panel with battery meter and 3-way switching, along with a 12V socket for 12V DVD players et cetera.
  • 4 x master switched LED lights with a variety of settings, from bright beams to mood lighting.
  • Gas installation and certification

Pod Units

Compact Pod – Fixed or Removable

Our Compact Pod comes in fixed or removable forms, choose from 6 colours for the formica doors (powder blue, sea blue, red, pink, lime green or orange). The removable option gives you the possibility of cooking in the Great Outdoors, allowing you to take your double, gas-powered hob and fridge out under an awning or sunshade to reserve your van for lounging and sleeping. In place of a fixed 49L fridge, the removable Compact Pod combines with a 35L Dometic cool box, which can easily be wheeled down to the beach on its own for a few cold ones on a hot day.

With our fixed compact pod an optional underbody water tank can connect to a flexi tap or flip out cooker and sink.

Recommended Extras

Rear Overhead locker

While side lockers are off the menu in a Pod, our single rear lockers are just as popular for an additional cubby hole. The panels either side of the drawer are a natural platform for speakers, where they aren’t going to get muffled by bags and bedding.

Split underbed locker

Exclusive to the Pod’s Cambee full width Flex 156 bed, these let you remove the large drawer for boards and kayaks, but leave the smaller in place with your essentials.

Driver’s seat spinner

Open up the spacious Pod interior even more with our best-selling front seat spinners on both the driver and passenger sides.

Safari roof

Raise the roof on your T6 or T5 for a den-come-seating space that’s a huge hit with tiny travellers. Great for keeping a watchful eye on their activities while a removable Pod steams away outside.

All in all, the number of potential Pod combinations are endless. For a full list of our Pod upgrades and accessories contact us
