“The purchase of our EcoWagon marked a dream coming true. If you are lucky enough to own a Volkswagen camper van, then you’ll know what I am talking about. It took my wife and I eight years to finally buy, and it wasn’t just the saving up that stalled us.
If you buy a converted van from any old conversion garage, it’s pretty likely that they’ll see your money first, sooner than care about what you really need. Before buying the van I love from Kenny, I had sat in and test driven countless. Many rattled, were underpowered, scratched, rusted, seats ripped, radios ripped out. And if I was bold enough to comment, invariably they replied, “it’s old mate, what do you expect?” What I always expected, was that if I was going to spend all the money I had in the world, I expected the van at least to be cleaned, and the garage to see more than just my wallet, but to actually care about what it was I needed.
Kenny cares about what you need. Not only does he care, any van you buy from EcoWagon will be immaculately presented. My van is 15 years old, and after the custom paint, it looks like it just rolled off the production line. I’m not interested in heads turning when I drive, I’m interested in enjoying the journey, but heads do turn.
I had test driven a van a week before. In the dash, a builder had scratched a phone number he needed to remember. I asked the seller what could be done. He just suggested I get something to cover the scratch. Apart from anything else, the idea of buying anything from anyone who doesn’t care about what they’ve made, should result in a ban from selling anything ever again.
Our van was fully serviced by VW connections as part of the sale, coupled with any repairs you’d expect need to be made on a 15 year old T4. Kenny wanted to make us feel comfortable and happy throughout. A T4 is a lifestyle choice, breaking down on a motorway is not.
If you are getting your van converted or buying a converted van, and it’s not from EcoWagon, you’re only buying a van. I bought that, and some, and trust. Beat that.”
