Today’s episode features an interview with Simon Newbury.  Simon is a designer who has been living in and creating gorgeous small spaces for over a generation.

Simon’s recent Mercedes Sprinter van conversion – the bed is nearly 7 feet long on one side!

Even though you are unlikely to know his name, if you have ever looked at campervan builds on Pinterest, you will have seen his beautiful self built Mercedes Vito campervan Finn.

This is the second of two ‘café conversations’ in the run up to the Camp Quirky handmade campervan festival. In this episode we talk making a van conversion budget stretch, heating systems and creating an effective campervan design.

Simon is generous and encouraging in the information he provides in this episode. I really hope you have a listen!

If you are tuning into this episode when it premieres, there is still a chance for tickets to see Simon and myself at the Camp Quirky handmade campervan festival.  He will be discussing heating systems and I’ll be doing a workshop on van conversion planning.
