Bespoke Van Conversions

Jack Richens of This Moving House, first started his business by transforming a second-hand 2012 Mercedes Sprinter, where he and his family of four can comfortably sleep, dine and unwind during adventurous holidays on the road. The cool camper uses space-saving boat design techniques to maximise its limited living space, such as the stacked beds that provide room for all four to sleep rather comfortably, and a porthole at the top bed keeps things open. The kitchen area is compact package, with a long, narrow sink, a two-burner stovetop, and just the right amount of counter space, whilst the dining area features the original captain-style chairs that swivel around. The interior of this impressive conversion feels spacious, with the curvaceous detailing making it feel very much like you´re onboard a ship of some kind. The cool camper cost about $10,000, with equipment and materials costing $8,500. You can read more about the construction process on This Moving House’s blog, and Richens has also started taking commissions to convert other vehicles into comfortable homes away from home.

BENTLEY BARNATO ROADSTER

The Bentley Barnato Roadster is a concept designed by Ben Knapp Voith while attending an 8-month design internship at Bentley. It is a modern interpretation of what the Bentley Boys (elite and adventurous British gentlemen racers who drove Bentley sports cars in the 1920s) would drive today. Ben´s tribute was inspired by Bentley´s early cars but also the gracious curves of the R-Type Continental. The end result is a stylish contemporary car with self-evident attenti...

Vagabund BMW R80RT

One of our favorite custom motorbikes ever, is the spectacular BMW R100R by Vagabond Moto.
