Reasons to Choose
Hoppy Campers

We have lots of ideas that we love to share but love nothing more than turning your camper ideas into reality.

  • Small Family run business

  • Utilising traditional & modern coach building practises

  • One off bespoke hand crafted conversions

Always Moving Forward

We constantly follow movement and progression within the industry adapting and striving to push boundaries and improve our products.

Make it yours

We have a good range of trusted suppliers providing us with 100’s of finishes of furniture board, flooring & fabrics allowing you to sculpt your van making it truly yours.


With original CAD drawings from the large van manufactures and a large continuous investment in state of the art equipment we have created well thought out conversions with focus on functionality, design and practicality.

Focusing on the finish

As a small volume builder it allows us to focus on the individual finishes that make up our conversions such as bespoke lighting design & hand upholstering trim, something that would not be achievable in mass production processes.

We could not be more delighted to have chosen Hoppy Campers to complete the conversion on our VW transporter T6.1. From our first meeting with Tom we knew we were in safe hands. His knowledge and expertise is very evident and the whole set up is very impressive. Tom listened to what we wanted and then delivered on time and over and above our wildest expectations. Nothing was too much trouble and he even sent photos so we could keep up with the progress of the build. If you want exceptional quality delivered by an absolute perfectionist look no further than Tom Hopkins at Hoppy Campers.Susie & Steve

Hoppy Campers carried out a full conversion on our Ford transit custom panel van in 2022. Tom was very professional throughout and the quality of the conversion and unique finishes are commented on frequently by others. We are delighted with our van and cannot wait to make more adventures with our children in the years to come.

The workmanship and attention to detail is superb. We couldn't believe how much storage we have, even down to a compartment for our walking boots and dogs stuff. it was tailored to our needs, following discussions every step of the way regarding lighting, flooring, cabinetry etc.We now have a bespoke van that we can really enjoy, travelling around the UK this year.Thank you so much Tom
