    I have had the privilege of reading an advanced digital copy of The Campervan Conversion before it’s upcoming publication date in April 2021.

    The Campervan Conversion Bible met and exceeded my expectations.

    Neatly, logically and concisely presented. The book is accessible to all and easy to navigate. Broken up into Chapters that deliver on every aspect of a van build to van life experiences.

    Charlie and Dale have done all our hard work for us. They have researched every detail extensively and have produced spread sheets, diagrams and layouts. Everything aspect of a build is covered ~ the costs, time, shopping lists and comprehensive gas and electric installation advice. All the questions that you may have about van builds you will find at the flick of a page.

  2. Rhiannon H. (verified owner)

    Just wow! This is a really high quality book. This is becoming so useful as I start to build my own van.

    We have already converted a van and are planning for our second van. This book is so detailed and will help us make choices for the next van. The Van Conversion Bible really lives up to its name! It is well worth the money, a must have if you are going to build a van!

A real coffee table book reminiscent of the Haynes guides but done with a human touch in full colour with beautiful photography. Highly recommended 5*

  46. Andy (verified owner)

    It’s an ok book. All of the stuff in the book could be researched on line.I I was hoping for more. I was disappointed that there was not more step by step instructions on circuit diagrams and wiring. This is the main difficulties with a van build.

    It’s a well presented book but I guess I wanted more then all the other books I have but unfortunately for me I got nothing more from this purchase.

    Amazing book, with interesting content and beautiful pictures. I love it !

  58. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This is an inspiring and helpful book if you’re planning a campervan project, with great illustrations and examples. As a complete newbie to this I’m finding some instructions use jargon without providing a glossary and so need more knowledge than I’ve got, so I’m not using it as a stand alone manual. It’s giving me a good over all idea of how to approach my van conversion and am backing it up with YouTube videos. It does explain electrics very well, which I’ve never understood before!!

  59. Lukas (verified owner)

    Have the e-book and found it very useful, but not getting on with the double page pdf format. I will probably bay the hardback in consideration of the level of detail provided. Just scratching my head re the solar and electrics so also find you website extremely useful. Excellent body of reference

    I love this book. We have dreams of converting a van and this is packed full of great hints and tips as well as clear, step by step guidance for the tiniest detail of van conversion.

    Hmmm, cannot review the book as I didn’t buy it for myself… A friend from EU asked me to buy it and then send it over. You don’t even sell e-books to other countries even though it’s a digital product… When I had that book in my hand I saw that it was nicely published, good pictures but didn’t focus on the content (as I mentioned it was a gift for somebody else).

    • climbingvan (store manager)

      Hi Anna, unfortunately this is yet another horrible side effect of Brexit! We would love to be able to sell our ebook into Europe, and are currently setting up with a German fulfilment company so we can fulfil orders into the EU, but at the moment this is impossible for us because of new taxes due to Brexit 🙁 believe me, we are as upset about this as everyone else!

    The Van Conversion Bible brings all the advice needed for a van conversion into one place. it’s most important contribution is the clear steps to be taken and the order to take them in. Within the context of paying thousands of pounds for a van and equipment, £25 is good value.

    A very well written e-book, only one drawback the size of paper it is formatted to although this is ‘get roundable’ using the small program which was supplied to me by Climbing Van to print it out on A4. A formidable size which will require an extra large comb binder to hold all the pages, these are available at good stationary stores.

    When it is described as a “bible” they are not kidding! This has EVERYTHING you need! And just as it claims, even things you haven’t considered, such as shapes/sizes of screws. We originally bought another guide from an established van rental/sales company, but were disappointed with the generalisations. We should have come straight to the van conversion bible! We cannot emphasise enough how vital for any budding conversion-ist to have by their side!

    Ok, so I haven’t bought a van yet, but I feel so much more prepared for conversion after reading this – alongside watching YouTube videos.
    It’s inspirational, factual, informative and genuinely, a good read. Dale and Charlie have struck a great balance here.
    If you’re absolutely clueless (as I am), I believe, this book will be an asset and an ally, in supporting you to make the step into van life. However, I would also say that, to supplement the book, watching practical videos to see the build ‘in person’ is essential for success.

    Nice and handy book, lots of analyses and ideas. At the end, its up to you, how you decide, what suits you the best, how you design your own project and rebuild the van.

    I got this book for my girlfriend. We are planning on building our own campervan so she was super excited to receive this gift! The book is beautiful, with nice graphics and schematics. Everything is very detailed in a perfect way for the non-specialists. The packaging was more than appropriate and nothing was wrong with the shipping/delivery process. I am extremely satisfied with the overall experience!

    I was skeptical on the idea of converting a van until I bought this book. Now I’m 100% certain of getting my own van and converting it. Thank you to Charlie and Dale for writing this masterpiece.

    Book is great, which arrived very quickly. Just a note about the packaging though – the book had almost come out of the cardboard wrapping when it arrived, so you may wish to review this.

    Bought this book as a present for my partner to aid her inspirational ideas about her HiAce van. She was so taken with it that she wrote herself to ClimbingVan to compliment them on putting together such a great book. Also tells other van owners of it too!
    For an addicted sewing fanatic I know she must have really appreciated the gift as the sewing machine wasn’t touched for a couple of days!

    I’ve not started planning my conversion yet due to other life things taking my time up BUT, I am absorbing as much as I can from this book whilst reading at my leisure. I am confident that when I do start in ernest the exceptional detail and simplicity in the clear and easy to follow diagrams and text is going to make decision making and planning so much easier than ever before. This will be van 5. I can’t wait…

    Reading the book and coming back to it when needed is a total pleasure. I feel like it’s so reliable that I don’t need another source of truth. Gave me tons of confidence and benchmarks. My only suggestion to improve is to add more illustrations to certain parts (e.g. the tools: for non-native english speakers it would save a lot of googling!)

    Extremely useful and condenses 1000s hours worth of information into an easy to follow guide. I’ve done tons of van research over the last few years and still learnt plenty of useful things from this! Really impressed with this and the overall company. Staff I’ve dealt with (Adam) has been beyond helpful, would recommend to anyone.
