More and more we are seeing Campervans especially Transporter where the DIY conversions have not been built to a satisfactory standard. Generally its the Gas installation and the Electrics that have been fitted by someone who lacks the knowledge for a safe installation.
If you are buying a Campervan that as been converted by a DIY Convertor at home who as no insurance or liability insurance my concern would be HOW SAFE IS IT?. I would personally have it checked by a reputable conversion company, for the sake of an hour or so it could save your life and your friends and family who also travel in your vehicle
The VW T5 Transporter featured needed to be re-fitted for Gas and 12v electrics to make it safe, the conversion looks great aesthetically and to the untrained eye everything may look good but when you take a closer look you can see the lack of knowledge when installing gas and electrics, not good.
