A little bit about us
We’re a family run business proud of our reputation for great customer service and expertise in Volkswagen campervans.
We have owned campervans for most of our lives and to this day still enjoy getting away as much as possible, including taking time out in our 1966 VW Splitscreen which we have lovingly restored.
Our expertise and knowledge has grown from working with classic Volkswagens of the 1960s through to the latest high tech Bluemotion T6.1, providing high quality, practical, and affordable camper vans and conversions to our customers.
Based in a beautiful rural location on the border of Surrey and Hampshire we look forward to welcoming you.
The Volkswagen and Camping seeds were sown when as a young 17 year old, Rod, rebuilt his Beetle and took off to France with a caravan in tow. Returning back to the UK, the caravan was scrapped but the Beetle became a trusted daily driver.
An idea is born
Having enjoyed so many trips out in our 1970s VW Type 2 campervan, the idea of hiring out Classic Campers sprung up. So we started Retrocampervan Classic Hire and built up a fleet of 11 classic campers that have been enjoyed by hundreds of customers over the years.
Whilst hiring and restoring classic campers we kept getting asked if we could convert modern Volkswagen vans into campers, so work and focus started to shift to building great looking Modern VW Transporter Campers.
Having outgrown our old workshop we moved into a new purpose built building in a beautiful country location on the border of Surrey and Hampshire, where we convert modern VW Transporters into beautiful looking Campers and are now in our 10th year of trading.
I would like to say how extremely impressed I am with my Campervan conversion by Surrey Campervans. Professional and high quality finish to my VW T5.1 LWB. Rod was very helpful with his knowledge and kept me updated with stages of the conversion.
Buying a camper van is not easy as you get so many options/opinions! Having been on the hunt since November and visiting dealers, some were interested others not. Visited many websites who all offer varying specifications, decided to book an appointment with Surrey Campervans who actually had vans to look at. Met Rod who went through and explained what he could offer in a very passionate and calm way, nothing was too much bother and with the relaxed way he conducts business I would certainly recommend Rod to anyone thinking of buying a camper van
Rod was extremely helpful when we visited Surrey Campervans, he spent time explaining the vans, how things worked etc we were very impressed and bought a van. Everything went incredibly smoothly with handover and we are now the proud owners of a fabulous camper van and with the confidence that Rod is there should we have any queries. I would certainly recommend, without hesitation, Surrey Campervans to anyone thinking of buying a van.
We purchased a new van with complete conversion and are SO thrilled with no only the vehicle but the whole experience with Rod and his brilliant workshop. Clearly a Volkswagen enthusiast - Rod was not only passionate about his vehicles but it was reassuring as a first time buyer in new campervans. Highly recommend.
