Jon is a graphic designer with a history of interesting mechanically oriented projects, including building a close replica of a 1953 MG TF (from a Triumph Herald base vehicle).

He’s now on his third van conversion, a Vauxhall Vivaro purchased as an unfinished project.   ‘Sylvester’ the van is now complete, and was recently featured in Campervan magazine.

Jon talks about making a medium size van feel spacious, adding upcycled vintage details to the conversion and his recent experiences renting out his van. 

Tune in for creative conversion ideas with copper tubing, the charming awning his partner made and mounting solar panels on a pop-top roof.
