Coniston

Off Grid Campervan (SOLD)

We are delighted to introduce Coniston she is our 4th campervan build, she was previously an ATS van and has been very well maintained.

The interior design is based on our own campervan which we live in full-time. We know how important it is that we maximise the use of space with plenty of easy to use storage and equipment, whilst maintaining a space that feels open and easy to move around in without squeezing past each other or making up beds everyday.

A stylish build perfect for mini breaks to full-time vanlife adventures in far off places. She would also make a perfect campervan for hiring out too.

Laura also works for Quirky Campers helping on board new rental vans onto the platform so has a massive amount of experience in this regard. She has also hired out 2 of her own vans in the past. We know our vans would make great rental vans if you also wanted to earn some extra money when not enjoying the van yourself.

Coniston is SOLD

Please call or email on 07790174118 or laura@brownbirdandcompany.co.uk

We are based in the North East of England if you would like to view the campervan.

ABOUT US

We are professional campervan converters who also live full time in a campervan! We have over 6 years combined experience of living full time time in a campervan so know exactly what you need to have a cosy home on wheels. We keep things simple and highly functional which are built to last whilst also tapping into our previous design jobs to create beautiful campervans.
Collectively we have spent over 4 years travelling around Europe off grid without the need for a campsite for power. All our vans are built with the same spec of equipment as the one we live in so you know you will have a van built for ultimate off grid adventures.

Kitchen

Full size working kitchen with beautiful live edge Pippy Oak worktop and flip up matching kitchen extension. This is the same size kitchen as the van we live in and has 2.5m of useable worktop, we make full on roast dinners, cakes, bread etc in our camper with lots of room for chopping and baking using the Omnia oven on the hob. We have also handmade a slide out larder cupboard which gives lots of extra storage for spices and bottles.
