At Thistle Rose Leisure, we are qualified, professional automotive engineers with a pedigree in design for many of Europe's main converters. Our staff have worked for household names such as Mercedes-Benz and Volvo in design, vehicle conversion, consultancy and compliance. Our owner, Peter Occardi has worked on European working groups as a national representative for vehicle safety standards in emergency vehicles, where lives depend on the quality of the engineering.
We bring this knowledge pool and mindset on safety and quality to our camper conversions.
Alongside our knowledge of engineering, design, compliance and vehicle conversion we also know what makes a camper van great.From build quality and layout to fittings and equipment, we understand the details that make camper vans part of the family and help us get the very best from our leisure time. As well as being professionals in the field of automotive design, we are also campers - and therefore experienced in fields of a completely different type (usually muddy!).
We believe that a good camper is a safe camper. We apply our nearly 100 years of accumulated knowledge and experience from major automotive manufacturers to ensure the same attention to safety and quality in everything we do.
A campervan is different from any other living accommodation. Our vehicle knowledge means that the electrical installation, heating installation and gas installations all meet safety regulations, ensuring that you can 'sleep easy' at night in your camper. You can also relax knowing that your vehicle safety has not been compromised in the unfortunate event of an accident, and that your camper van meets the requirements forcover with most UK insurers.
