Here at Platinum Wave Campers we have a fantastic step by step process for you to build your dream Volkswagen Camper van with us.
Our Workshop
Behind The Craft - Wheels
STEP 1 - Select Your Base VW Van

We are passionate about helping you design and build your dream custom build camper van. 

The first step in the process is to decide whether you would like us to convert your own Volkswagen Transporter or have our expert team source your dream custom VW Transporter. We understand that this is an important decision, and that is why we take great care in helping you choose the perfect base vehicle for your build. 

Our team of experienced professionals are dedicated to providing you with a high level of service and expertise, ensuring that you receive the best possible advice and support throughout the process.

When selecting your base vehicle, you will decide important vehicle elements such as colour, mileage, gearbox, short wheelbase, or long wheelbase. We take your budget and personal preferences into account to ensure that we are able to support your decision and find the best options available for you. 

Our team will then go out of their way to find the perfect base vehicle for your conversion, so that you can have peace of mind that you are getting the best possible starting point for your custom build camper van.

When we have your vehicle sourced, we’re ready to move onto STEP 2.

STEP 2 - Design Your Camper Van Interior

Once you have selected the ideal base vehicle, the next step in our custom build process is to choose the perfect layout for your custom build camper van. 

You can choose from two configurations - Canterbury and Windermere - both available in SWB and LWB options, with a wide range of surfaces, finishes, and accessories to complete your build.

At Platinum Wave Campers, we offer an almost unlimited set of configurations, with a wide range of options for upholstery, units, workboards, flooring, insulated blinds, wheels, interior finishing, and more. 

We understand that every detail matters, and we want to ensure that your custom build camper van is unique to your style and preferences.

We offer carpets and blinds in a wide range of colours that will complement your custom van design. All of our carpets and blinds are made of durable materials, making them perfect for your camper van interior.

In addition, we offer a range of laminated lightweight worktops that coordinate perfectly with your custom camper van specification and colourways. 

You can choose from a stocked range or fast delivery of a wider collection (please contact our Sales team to find out latest stock availability). All our units and worktops are made of lightweight plywood and are heat and moisture resistant, making them perfect for your campervan kitchen.

We are proud to offer the comprehensive range of Valencia coated fabrics for your new luxury camper van. Valencia delivers durability, water resistance, cold crack, and UV-resistance. You can choose from a fantastic range of colours to create a unique and stylish interior.

We also offer a wide choice of hard-wearing 2mm safety flooring. The range boasts a large selection of colour choices and benefits from Altro Easyclean, superior cleanability, and stain resistance. 

At Platinum Wave Campers, we offer comprehensive custom build options with the very best materials, helping you create a unique and comfortable custom build camper van.

Congratulations, your custom build camper van is about to become a reality! 

At this stage in the conversion process, we have all the details we need to start building your dream camper van from scratch. 

After confirming your specification with our expert team, all that's left to do is to secure your build slot by leaving a holding deposit of £1000. 

We'll then source your dream Transporter and send it to our workshop to be completely transformed. Our team will follow all of your personalisation and design specifications, ensuring that every detail is just as you envisioned.

We are committed to providing you with the very best custom build service anywhere, and we take pride in our workmanship and attention to detail. We will keep you updated throughout the conversion process, and you are welcome to visit our workshop to see your camper van taking shape.
