Camper Box Manufacturer

Postby RussG » Sat Dec 17, 2016 8:54 am

Well I blame you lot for this :evil:

We're loving the Sprinter but........size matters.

So I'm now pondering a small (ish) truck build. I'm thinking along the lines of:
Iveco Daily truck cab.
Sprinter truck cab. To give you an idea of size, one of these http://www.bimobil.com/en/modell/bimobil-ex-366/
Man 8.136 or 150. See my other post, I like the size of these but are they are bit long in the tooth, too slow, too thirsty?
Unimogs. I like the compact size but not the price and complexity.
Man 10.185. This is the absolute max in size for us.

So to the question.
Any suggestions on a manufacturer for the camper body? I'd just want the basic box built, I would finish the interior. UK based preferably but if not Europe.

Failing that I like the MB Vario. Now that I've done a panel van (the Sprinter) this is probably the easiest way to go for me.

Cheers.

Hi Russ

Good luck, exciting times

I dont know of any box manufacturers on the UK to recomend

However, a small trip across ghe water will take you to these guys , who are friends of the forum.

Some good friends of ours are just in the final stages of a truck build with them and they are very pleased.

Stefan on this forum has had some great work done there and really rates them

And to top it off they are just really nice people who will accomodate you and guide you through the process.
