About Us

As a small business, we build meaningful relationships with each of our clients to execute their dreams with care.

We pride ourselves on the high quality of our custom campervan conversions. We are extremely passionate about what we do and have a ‘no corners cut’ approach.

Located in Torquay, right at the start of the famed Great Ocean Road, you’ll find us in the industrial estate behind Bunnings, in between Hilbilby Cultured Food (Fire Tonic) and Great Ocean Road Gin.  We love working with other like minded local businesses and feel proud to part of this wonderful Surf Coast community.
