Ford Transit Custom Conversions by Thistle Rose

For many years, Ford were unable to offer a midi-sized van that could compete with the Volkswagen Transporter in Europe - that is until the Transit Custom launched in 2013.

The Transit Custom in many ways is the ideal vehicle for a midi-sized camper van conversion.  It is slightly wider on the interior, slightly taller inside and with smaller wheelbox intrusions; it is a coachbuilder's delight to convert to a camper van and is really giving the T6 some serious competition in the camper market.

Used prices for the Transit are usually considerably lower than an equivalent VW T6 which allows you to buy newer or with a better specification for the same budget.  The downside of course is that the resale values of used Custom camper vans do not quite match those of a VW, so what you gain at the front end, you'll lose slightly at the back end.  The Transit Custom provides a near car-like driving experience whilst providing all the space necessary to travel and sleep with 4 occupants.  The SWB version is no longer than a large family estate car and is as easy to park and manoeuvre.  Fuel consumption from the efficient diesel engines can easily reach the mid-forties for MPG.

With numerous designs and configurations for the short wheelbase and long wheelbase variants - including the excellent L2H2 hi-top, Thistle Rose can tailor your Transit Custom camper van to meet your precise needs.

The most common layouts on a Transit Custom are:

Side Kitchen - 2 rear travelling seats, 2 or 4 berth
Side Kitchen - 3 rear travelling seats, 2 or 4 berth
Gangway rear kitchen, 2 or 4 berth
Gangway rear kitchen/toilet - LWB, 2 or 4 berth
U Shaped rear lounge - 2 or 4 berth

Thistle Rose are registered with Ford as bodybuilder converters on the Ford ETIS system. This means we have access to the Ford bodybuilder information.  We build to the Ford Body Equipment Mounting Manual - vitally important given the advanced electrical systems on the Transit Custom. This means that warranty cover of your Transit Custom van is not adversely affected by our conversion work.
