Fully Off Grid Camperan

Scafell was our first campervan conversion build. After travelling for two years in her we decided to sell her. She's fully off grid with 300 watts of solar power and automatic charging system. She had a full make over and new upgraded equipment prior to being sold. Painted white she feels spacious and classy with oodles of storage space.

Scafell was sold in March 2021 to a lovely English couple living in Germany who are having some great adventures in her. 


Full size working kitchen with beautiful live edge Pippin Oak worktop. We make full on roast dinners, cakes and bread etc with lots of room for food preparation and baking using an Omnia oven on the hob. 

Thetford 922 hob – 2 burner hob with electric ignition 

Omnia Oven 

Soft close drawers all have 9kg pull strength magnets to prevent them from opening when travelling and maintain a sleek kitchen finish.

Round stainless steel sink with boat style pump handle tap which we have adapted to be electric for ease of use.

2 x Copper shelves

Water 60 litres (we like to use 10 litre water containers which can be filled up anywhere including fountains, streams, fuel stations etc. Sometimes it can be tricky to fill up permanently fitted tanks if there isn’t a hose which is why we went for easily removable water containers). Also stops your water freezing in very cold temperatures! See our blog on full time van life for more info.
