How We Got Started


Established since 1995, from our base in Bantham, South Devon, where we specialise in VW Camper vans.

It all started originally when by accident I needed a van to go windsurfing in, the fabulous versatility of the VW’s made it the perfect choice. Since then our business has grown from a reputation that’s founded on the experience and knowledge, acquired during this time of using VW’s on a daily basis for work and play.

We sell mainly Volkswagen van conversions with the odd Volkswagen coach built van. In August 2012 we decided that due to our usage of Volkswagen we wanted a superior more trendy looking van. It was then that we decided to build the Levante range on the T4 and T5 chassis. We feel that these vans fit with the different clientele than those who buy the vans who are built by the autosleepers of this world.

Since 2012 we have been refining the Levante range by our own personal usage, so we know the issues when going out camping especially abroad. The Levante has proved to be so popular this year and from 2015 we will be offering a more bespoke option with a specification upgrade list available enabling you to create the van you want.

We will also now be able to offer various accessories from the Vango range amongst others. These are quality accessories we have found “a must” on our travels, Air Beam awnings (easy to use), tables, chairs, plates and cutlery ( all essential while using these vans) further to the camping accessories we also know you want to make your van special to you. So also in 2015 we will be offering external extras, alloy wheels, awnings, bike racks, levelling blocks, hook-up leads and all the bits you know you want, even bespoke curtains for the girls!

Whilst we feel the basic Levante van is a great package, I appreciate our taste may not be for all  So if you wish you can choose colours of flooring, cabinets ,seats and now curtains, this is all possible.

We are very proud of our vans and use them ourselves for our own daily driver, weekender (both home and away) and especially our holidays so I know how precious the time away is and what to expect from the van. Our vans will come with a full MOT and can be warranted and finance s available. Feel free to call us to discuss your needs and requirements.

Hi Gavin just thought I’d take this moment to say thanks. Dealing with you has been a pleasure, the T5 is everything I could wish it to be. I found you to be a friendly and approachable, customer focused guy where nothing was too much trouble.

I purchased a T5 camper from you last year and have been over the moon with the vehicle. Its taken us the length and breath of the country a couple of times on holiday.

It is a great van and you are a honest and decent dealer and we have recommended you to a number of people who have asked about the van. You never know if we are ever in a position to upgrade we will certainly be in touch, however for now we are really enjoying our lovely van, regards.

I have purchased two 1995 VW campers from BUY A CAMPER both of which were in excellent running order, very well presented and both have been extremely reliable.The owner, Gavin Jones, was extremely courteous and friendly and is obviously very experienced in the Camper Van business. I have no hesitation in recommending him and the Company should you require a good and honest deal.

Robert Peters

The Buckleys
