Design your van


At Thistle Rose Leisure we are automotive designers, so we can tailor the layout to your requirements.

We also have a range of modular furniture units that we can mix and match to produce standardised layouts that are already designed.  

It's also worth reading our page on 'Plan Your Van'- in particular 'What Do I need' and 'What Extras' are worth reading when considering layouts.
4 Berth - 5 Travelling Seats (Holidaymaker)

The most popular layout is with the kitchen and lockers along the right hand wall of the van with a three quarter seat that converts to a bed on the left hand side near the sliding door.
We normally glaze all round the van and if a rear upper locker or wardrobe is fitted we 'black out' behind the rear right hand window.
Exterior Paint
If using a stock van as the base vehicle for your conversion the exterior paint colour will already be fixed, however if you feel strongly about a particular paint colour you may wish to buy your own vehicle in your chosen hue, or ask us to source something from our trusted network.
Built to order using our own in house CNC robotic facilities - choose your finish to compliment your style.

We are vehicle designers and can even adapt the furniture to your specific design for a truly bespoke conversion (POA).  Come in and chat with us about what you need.

Interior Walls
Choose a colour to suit your mood - light and bright, warm and inviting or something darker and more mysterious.  We're happy to advise on the best interior colours to achieve the effect you're after and also help to choose co-ordinating furniture, flooring and upholstery combinations.
These are some of the more popular colours for van interiors however if you don't  see one you like please ask as we can source many more shades!

We can also finish the interior in suede, faux leather and perforated or textured linings.

Other Options:

Roof Options - choose from either a pop-up roof low level or standard profile - we are certified fitters for Drivelodge roofs - or a permanent extended 'hiline' roof.
Heating - a number of options are available for heating your van, depending on how you will use it.  Choose from electric heating which relies on drawing power from a campsite hook-up, diesel powered heating which will use the fuel from the vehicle tank (requiring no hook-up and conserving gas supplies), or gas heating which will draw from the same supply as that used for cooking.
Kitchen - the 2 ring gas hob fitted as standard can be complemented by the addition of a gas powered grill or oven.  Choose between a (electric powered fridge) or energy efficient cool box.
Electrical - all vans are fitted with a robust rechargeable 12V leisure battery.  240v hook-up with additional power sockets is a common addition to the majority of vans.
Outside - tow bars, awnings, luggage racks, bike racks and awning rails can be fitted as required.
