OUR STORY

WHAT BEGAN AS A HOBBY BECAME A WAY OF LIFE FOR US HERE AT SHERWOOD CAMPERS. BASED IN BOUGHTON, NOTTINGHAMSHIRE, GEZ MEEHAN BEGAN CONVERTING VW VANS ALONG WITH HIS WIFE DEBRA AND SON JONATHAN OVER 5 YEARS AGO.

Fanatical about the VW Transporter and providing the best quality service and materials; Sherwood Campers was originally borne out of frustration following a bad experience purchasing a poorly converted camper. On the face of it, the van looked good. However, it soon became apparent the quality of work wasn’t up to scratch.

So we set about completely gutting our LWB VW T5 Transporter to fully convert it ourselves. After months of research, and as qualified plumbing and gas engineers, we knew we had the skills and imagination to convert it to the top quality finish we wanted.

Chuffed with the results, it spiralled from there! Van after van, initially as a hobby in our spare time. With demand growing for our conversions and with a range of top brands and suppliers on board. We were determined to only kit out each custom job with the best materials and equipment following our first experience. We checked out the competition and then took the plunge setting up GP T5 conversions

A few years of hard graft, many a conversion and cups of tea went by in a flash! Before we knew it, we had to move to bigger premises and we set up shop as Sherwood Campers in our current location.

We never imagined that a bad buying experience would be the catalyst to such great things and a business our whole family love being a part of.

Sherwood Campers has grown at a rapid rate. We believe due to our eye for detail, craftsmanship and always listening to our customers so they can have the camper conversion they have always wanted. Our skilled team continually search the market for the best materials, equipment and freshest ideas so you don’t have to.

The result – VW conversions that are second to none.
