Media mentions & Ecowagon VW conversions in the press.

Ecowagon are often featured in the press so here’s a few articles that may be of interest. Please note that the features are not in specific chronological order. Ecowagon no longer carry out T5 or T4 conversions (sorry). We only convert VW T6.1s or Volkswagen T6s as of 2018. Okay, so we might convert a T5 occassionally.
