Jerba Campervans to start converting VW Crafter

Scottish converter Jerba Campervans has announced it is starting to convert the Volkswagen Crafter, the biggest commercial vehicle VW produce.

The campervan is between 6 and 7.4 metres, and is able to bear a load volume of as much as 18.4 cubic metres.

So far, the campervan converter has finished one VW Crafter, with Jerba now working on a second. The announcement follows the news that the company has received planning permission to extend its workshop, which will see the company’s production capacity increased. There will also be new equipment and a bespoke spray booth, as part of a £210,000 investment.

The Scottish company, which is based in North Berwick, is recognised as a Motorhome Qualified Converter by Volkswagen, and has been employee-owned since January 2018.

Simon Poole, Jerba Campervans’ co-founder, said: “The transformation of our first Crafter van marked a big step for us here at Jerba.”

“It’s the perfect-sized van and is extremely versatile. It has a particularly comfortable cab, which means you can take it on even longer journeys and is more economical than most vans of its size.”
