Variety is the Spice of Life!

We produce numerous designs to our customer's desires and take pride in our friendly pre-sales advice.
We believe that a good camper is a safe camper.

We are professional camper van converters based in North Yorkshire with over 100 years of amassed experience in special vehicle conversions. We apply this 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, seating, 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 for cover with most UK insurers.
The VW Transporter remains the most popular choice for campervan conversions. Thistle Rose construct lots of different layouts on the SWB and LWB vans.
Transit Custom
The Transit Custom is a real alternative to the VW T6, available in short and long wheelbase as well as with a hi-top factory roof, this van makes an excellent practical campervan.
Nissan NV200
An exceptionally compact fun vehicle that can make a full camper for 2+2 with a full length bed and side kitchen squeezed into a vehicle that is no larger than a compact hatchback car.
Ducato, Boxer, Relay
The large Sevel vans make exceptional campervans. With their near vertical side walls, they are ideal to convert into a living space. We have various designs for this vehicle including bed-over-garage and rear dinette designs.
Other Builds
As qualified automotive designers and professionals in rapid prototype and development, we are uniquely placed to look at bespoke design and build projects
Our Range of Conversions
- but maybe not as long as you would think -

Our conversions are usually tailored precisely to your needs and we schedule in a build date based on lead times for items and available slots.  

Bling isn't really our thing - we don't dress up tired old vans with fresh paintjobs, chipped engines, LED rope lights and low quality sparkly alloy wheels to sell vans - we build quality bespoke conversions to vehicles we procure from the franchised dealer networks or from base vans supplied by our customers.

We do excel at solving the problems other manufacturers can't - maybe a bespoke electrical configuration or a specific item of equipment that has to be stored securely in your van.  We have the advantage of designing and manufacturing all our furniture in-house which means we can alter configurations to suit our customer's needs.

We have over 200 different designs of cabinets and over 10,000 build permutations of seats, cupboards, kitchens etc.  Rather than buy a campervan that someone wants to sell, why not talk to us about the camper van you want to buy.

Care and Dedication is our Ethos

We don't mass produce.  We build campers for our customers and take care and pride in building the campervan they want.  Everything we build we're happy to put our name against - most of our customers now come from referrals from existing customers - and we want to keep it that way.
