Steve came us with a toaster (yes, for toasting bread) and an old builders VW T5 van. Back to the toaster… Steve really liked the colour of the sage green toaster and wanted this colour featured on the inside of his VW T5 conversion. We suggested painting the bottom half of the van in the sage green as well. He wanted chrome handles and side bars but we encouraged him to tone all this down and the resulting van conversion is featured here.
Alan and Laura asked us to convert their VW T5 back in 2016 at the time when we had started design the Expo conversion. In fact we like to think of this as a pre-Expo because it has many of the features that we eventually designed into the Expo VW conversion camper van.
Take a look at their amazing pics:
VANLIFE is a must read blog for anyone who relishes and adventure and enjoys an amazing trip.
Paul and Miriam’s images are featured all over our website from their immense trip around the USA in an Ecowagon Expo VW T6 Highline conversion. The van was originally a panel van and we carried out a full and comprehensive conversion.
Alan (aka glovantastic), Tracy and Frank (the dog) look like they’re having a ball in their Ecowagon Expo VW conversion named Glo (GLO-van-tastic). We thought you would like to view their adventures; they are rather amazing.

As of 2018 we’ve been converting camper vans for around 10 years. For much longer our enthusiasm for VW campers has been deep rooted and passionate.
We genuinely know a thing or two about VW vans and have converted and refurbished Type 2, T4, T5 and T6 as well vans from other manufacturers.
Ecowagon was incorporated in 2012 and continues to create the most amazing VW Transporter conversions. Our customers constantly tell us that were are the best. Of course we don’t just want to be the best, we want to be the reference point for VW T5 and T6 conversions.
Our first proper conversion:
We love to hear from our customers and they do stay in touch. Here’s a great story from John and Jackie who have been touring Spain.
Dear Kenny and the boys.
We made it across biscay last Saturday without loosing my breakfast. We have legged it down south just arriving in Seville today. Weather has been improving by the day and it was lunch outside with the awning up when we arrived here. Still nothing major has fallen off I will wash the van and try for some more arty pictures for you.

Ecowagon has been converting VW vans to campervans at its Cornish base for some time but 2018 saw its exhibit at the Motorhome and Caravan Show for the first time. Print Editor Stuart Kidman of Caravan and Camping Club took a closer look at one of its latest models, the Expo Plus VW T6 conversion.
The price in the video review is advertised at £67,000.00 for the base van and conversion. Expo Plus conversions start at £34,995.00 and the Expo VW camper van conversion is from £17,995.00. You can see the prices of all our conversions here.
It was a privilege to hear Stuart sing our praises:
We sat in the Expo Plus and it’s utterly stunning… really, really excellent conversion.
Nick Harding took a look at the Ecowagon Switch bespoke Volkswagen campervan conversion boasting a plethora of luxury options which Club members Jeff and Nikki have been using to tour Africa. Read the full test report of this very special Ecowagon Switch VW conversion on pages 102-104 in the June 2018 issue of the Club Magazine (if you’re a subscriber).
Please note that the van is reported at a price of £80,000 but the conversion is from £24,995.00 (as of November 2018). Jeff and Nikki purchased a very high spec VW Transporter van for this conversion.
We were recently invited along with 12 of the countries top converters to take part in a Camper Showdown.
We came out very well and you can read all results when they are published in the camper mags mid November along with a video. Wish us luck. We have a few campers that went to the show for sale on our website, so take a peak and get it on the action! Can’t find a van you like? Click here to find out about pre-reg, new or pre-owned vans; we can help.
We are concentrating on getting our demo vans converted ready for camper jam at the moment watch this space for some exciting news soon.
George Eustice MP recently visited Ecowagon. Based near Redruth, Ecowagon takes used and brand new vans and converts them into luxury camper vans. Ecowagon recently won “What Motorhome” magazine’s Camper Van of the Year Award. This has inspired expansion of the business and the creation of new jobs.
Exciting news – we now have a full sized in-house precision CNC machine to help create great conversions all now from on site. Take a look at the machine in action on our Facebook page.
The Ecowagon team will be the West Point Arena Show – 26th, 27th and 28th January 2018. Come and see our camper van conversions and meet the team. See you there.
Dear Kenny and lads.
Just to let you know we have been off for a couple of days to Dartmoor to trial the van. Everything was fine and still nothing has dropped off. We are very pleased with the fit out work and the van is a delight to drive compared to the T4. Attached is a picture, not an inspiring dream shot but nubile maidens and endless palm fringed beaches were scarce in Lydford.

Our customers travel far and wide for an Ecowagon VW Transporter conversion. Dot and Tricia journeyed all the way from Dundee to Cornwall after spending a year of reasearch and many hours looking at other van conversions. Featured here is their stunning walnut and cream Expo Plus.
Thought you might want to see a of pic of our Westy camper conversion that we showcased at the Volksworld Show and a few pics on location in Cornwall.
From April 2016, MMM magazine look at some of the best T5 VW campervans on the market. We had some stiff competition here but we decided to present a van that definitely had character!
The Ecowagon Ultimate Explorer (no longer produced) is reviewed – a forerunner to the Expo and Expo Plus. Inspired by a Scottish colour palette with heather and moorland hues, this VW conversion interior is BRIGHT and BOLD in equal measures. Please note that this conversion does not have the bespoke Ecowagon blinds that we now fit to our T5 and T6 conversions. Many other advances have been made too including technology and flexibility. We constantly improve and innovate.
The Ecowagon review begins at 12 minutes and 23 seconds and ends at 15 minutes and 59 seconds.
