van conversions

Hi Blondel,
Good to hear from you today, thanks for the reply.
Our company specializes in bespoke vehicles of all types, shapes and sizes. The build is determined by the customer, who we would work very close with.
The chassis can be supplied by the customer or that can be left to us.
So if it is a van conversion, A.class, C. class or lorry chassis we can accomadate all.
We can deliver, the vehicle if neccessary.

All parts of the build process take place all on site.
This gives us the edge to be very competitive.
We are based in Northern Ireland.
The company name is Tomlin Leisure Vehicles.
We have been trading for 4+ years.

I look forward to hearing from you again.

Safe travels and blue skies

Kind Regards

Thanks for the info but Northern Ireland is a long way from Newcastle upon Tyne.

If you are looking for a purpose built disabled van to your specifications you might also like to know of a firm caled Event homes who build individual vans from the chassis up. We sold our Kontiki and had one made for us to suit my husbands needs for both the electric wheelchair and night time cpap machine. The van doesn't come that cheap, although it is no dearer than buying new off the shelf and then adapting. It has been designed brilliantly and accomodates all our needs and is an absolute joy to travel and sleep in. It is very well built, and to a high standard.

For adaptions to a new or second hand vehicle try speaking to David Vooght of GM Coachwork, Trusham, Newton Abbot. They specialise in vehicles for the disabled and will 'have a go' at most things.

Certainly recommend Roy Wood Transits for special builds, also NVC motorhomes (Nu venture) who do bespoke builds.

Most importantly DO NOT GIVE UP. Striving to continue enjoying motorhomes after having a disabling illness or accident is another reason to live. If you think you can then all things are possible. Most things that need to be done can be done one way or another and if you ever get stuck then ask any of us other motorhomers and we are sure to help.
Lose your temper with the thing by all means on the odd occasion but never give up on it.

Nil Carborundum etc.
