Keep it Simple.
Cardiff Campervan provides a personal experience with your build, complete with attention to detail, technical explanation, and advice that focuses on functionality to keep your build costs down while focusing on functionality and ROI. We are not the fanciest builder in the business for sure, we don't compete for instagram post or pinterest likes. We are in the business of building vans that are high quality functional builds. We build weekender campervans not tiny homes. Nothing wrong with that, its just not our thing. :) Our clients tend to get more for less because of this.
I am a car guy first, and a builder second; I love the outdoors and cars not because it’s a trend or to make a huge profit. I owned my first van when I was in high school – these vehicles have always been cool and functional to me, and more than 50 personal custom cars/trucks/vans later, I have been able to apply this expertise to my conversions for customers with over 150 builds since I starting doing this for others a few years ago.
My experience building custom cars and trucks since the age of 16 led me to re-build my first campervan in 2012 – a VW Eurovan with a pop top. I quickly realized after completing it the lack of space, unreliable performance, and lack of safety it had to offer. So I began my journey building personal vans that would address the shortcomings of older campervans while, at the same time, offering the utility of a truck, people carrier, and camper all in one van. I wanted to create a van that could replace your daily driver and make financial sense for the family at a reasonable cost.
After dealing with other builders and just not being happy with the service, quality of work or advice, I decided to help others who wanted something similar but doing it my way based on how I have used my vans camping and using my experience building classic custom cars. By focusing on simple functional builds, I help my clients design and/or build a campervan at a reasonable cost and provide practical advice based on real world experience without the pressure of trying to sell them everything, including the kitchen sink, literally.
My motto of keeping it simple is carried forward into every build I do. I have been able to help many customers build functional vans that are within their budget by making smart decisions to maximize their investment.
We may not be the biggest builder, but we are one of the few that focus on simple weekender style conversions, with a focus on functionality being done on time, on budget, and done right. We will do complete builds as well as smaller projects to help a DIY'er tackle the more complex parts of their builds.
