How long does it take to build my kit and what tools do I need?
The record for assembling the woodwork is under 3 hours. Typically, it takes between 3-6 hours to build your first one. We provide everything you need to build it, including the two screwdrivers.
For the full kit (wiring, plumbing and upholstery etc.) we would leave a couple of days aside to do it. Take your time and enjoy your build!
Can anyone build the kit, or do I need existing woodwork skills?
Absolutely anyone can build this kit. All the holes are pre-drilled and the panels are pre-cut. All you need to do is follow the simple instructions and screw the panels together. The build is really enjoyable as you see your empty van transform into a camper!
How can I receive my kit?
We currently offer collection from our workshop in East Tamaki, Auckland. We can also ship to anywhere in NZ. Overseas shipping in not yet available.
Do I need to get my van Self-Contained?
You only need to be self contained if you plan on freedom camping. If you plan on staying in registered campsites every night, you do not need to be self contained.
Do I need a Leisure Battery?
If you want to charge anything (laptop, phones, cameras, speakers etc.) we suggest you run a leisure battery. Our wiring looms are designed to charge you leisure battery while your driving.
However, your leisure battery can never discharge your van battery, so you’ll always be able to drive off!
We can also size and provide a 230v inverter for charging laptops, running TVs , games consoles etc. This makes the van a real home away from home.
I have a van which you don’t list, can you do a kit for me?
Yup! We can 3D scan and design up a kit for you. We would need access to the van for an hour at our workshop in East Tamaki. You can contact us to organise.
Can I see a van before I buy?
No worries, our van ‘Stevie’ is converted as a show van. Your welcome to come over and have a look around to make sure the layout fits your plans!
How easily can I remove the kit?
The kit has no permanent fixings to your van chassis. This means you can drop it in and remove it for a weekend. It is perfect for anyone wanting to use a their existing van for camping trips!
Can you guys install?
Yup! No worries, we can install for an additional cost.
