Are you looking for the perfect place to pitch your tent for a camping trip you’ll never forget? Perhaps you’ll need supplies before you can venture off but you’re not sure where to find the right provisions? Or, perhaps, ‘camping’ to you does not mean pitching a tent but driving up in your fully decked-out campervan for a night under the stars?

No matter which way you view camping, these three companies are here to assist you with a holiday you won’t soon forget.

Crafty Otter Campers

Midweek Herald:

A family run business, based in Honiton, offering bespoke campervan conversions. We also have converted vans for sale. We will guide you through the whole process from design right up to the finished camper van, all tailored to your lifestyle. Or come and visit us and take a look at the vans we have for sale ready to drive away.

Small jobs: Don't have time to get those small jobs completed? We can book you in for one off jobs such as: diesel heater, extractor fans, pop tops, electric hook ups and much more.


Every van conversion we undertake is different to the last. We design and build your van to suit your lifestyle and budget. There are multiple layout options for any sized van, from the traditional to the very unique, it's all possible with our bespoke service.


Every aspect of our conversions is hand made from start to finish. Our timber furniture and units are all cut, prepared and finished by hand. As a result, our conversion style offers a more rustic and personal touch, without compromising quality or durability.
