We're a campervan conversion business based in Bristol.


Where are you headed?

That's the real question. The next question is: how are you going to get there? Maybe you're going to walk there, maybe you're going to take the bus? Or maybe you're getting there in a Handkrafted Camper, bespoke built for your needs and desires - but you already know that, because that's why you're here right?

We started our journey when we converted a Mercedes bus to live and travel around Portugal. Living in Joy the bus taught us so much about what makes van life wonderful, the little touches, comforts and details that turn a van into a home.



Issey is passionate about reclaiming materials, "one woman's junk is another woman's treasure." She's always been a keen maker of many things. She's an advocate of the simple life and loves helping people create tiny and big homes on wheels. 



Shelly grew up in her dad's cabinet-making workshop and this is where her passion for carpentry began. She's got a keen eye for creating beautiful spaces and is happiest when she is in the workshop tinkering with tools and Handkrafting campervan conversions.



We were given Kika when we were away living in our big bus in Portugal. She was a lost puppy.

She is kinda the reason we thought building campervans might be a good idea!
