The design of our Taransay furniture at the rear of the T5 has a full height counter that gives a real home kitchen feel. We don’t simply assemble premade furniture kits, we scribe, cut and edge band in house and treat every camper van as an individual project.
A high quality finish on your cupboards and lockers is often what makes your campervan stand out. Our Taransay T5 conversion furniture is scribed and hand cut by our own finishing carpenters to fit perfectly to the shape of the campervan – you won’t find gaps down the back of our counter tops where you could lose your cutlery, pens and worst of all spilt food and drinks.
We don’t simply assemble premade furniture kits, we have invested in machinery and training to allow you to make changes to your furniture layout – a service that virtually no other UK VW campervan conversion company can offer.
Where possible we also finish all our furniture with PVC edge banding, applied on our own in house machinery. Harder and far more durable than DIY style soft rubber trims, PVC edging gives a highly professional finish that is more familiar to kitchens at home. It will be as good after 5 years as it did after 5 days.
All our furniture material is lightweight poplar ply which is produced specifically for the motorhome and campervan market. We only use designs that are fully laminated on both sides, giving you the maximum in hard wearing finish both inside and outside your cupboards – it won’t easily dent, cut and chip like many paper and vinyl covered products will.
A fully adjustable table is fitted behind the front passenger seat use for when the seat is rotated – not only will this give a handy place at meal times or simply to put down your book or newspaper, but it can also be rotated to be outside of the sliding door for a table in the sun!
For the swivelled driver’s seat and the single rear passenger RIB on the driver’s side we provide a table with a removable leg that clips onto the side wall – it simply stows against that wall during travel. As standard we also provide a folding tripod foot for the table so you can also use it free standing outside!
- Fridge, Hob and Sink for Taransay
The Taransay is designed with the same worktop height as a standard domestic kitchen, ample counter space, a three burner SMEV gas hob with sink alongside and a 51 litre fridge that is raised up for easy access.
For the hob and sink unit we always fit Italian designed and manufactured SMEV products. With smoke glass lids they look stylish and provide vital counter top space when not in use. The Taransay comes standard with a combined sink and three burner hob unit – with a split glass lid you can easily increase your counter space. The counter height is also only a fraction lower than a standard domestic kitchen, making it easier on your back and giving loads of storage space beneath. The Taransay design also gives you a vast amount of free counter space for preparation.
For the Taransay fridge we fit a 51 litre model made by Italian company Vitrifrigo, running solely from the 12v leisure battery it also includes a 4 litre freezer compartment. Located opposite the hob and sink we raise the fridge up away from the floor for easy access. With a very low power usage the fridge will on average take no more than 1.5 amps per hour. With 150amp hrs of leisure battery this will give you around 4 to 5 days of independence from mains power or driving the vehicle to recharge the leisure battery.
To give almost complete summer time independence a serious option to consider is a roof mounted flush fitting solar panel. We fit a UK manufactured 100watt panel that has sufficient capacity to both run your fridge and your regular 12v appliances, as well as recharging your leisure battery. Be green and independent all in one!
- Gas & Electrics
A fully sealed steel gas box, top grade electrical parts and individually tested certification from qualified gas and electrical engineers are standard in our Taransay T5 conversion.
Gas – all our conversions are fitted with a fully welded and sealed steel locker designed specifically to fit either two Camping Gaz 907 butane cylinders or two Calor 3.9kg propane cylinders – keeping a full cylinder safely stored at the rear of the locker will mean you should never run out.
As an added safety feature, we place the locker in the boot so it’s impossible to close the vehicle tailgate without having first shut and secured the gas locker door – whenever you’re in the vehicle you’ll know the locker is safely sealed tight.
It’s also simple to access to change the cylinder over. You don’t have to reach down into the depths of a cupboard, with a 1.5m hose you can simply place the cylinder on the ground by the tailgate.
Giving you the option of fitting either propane or butane cylinders covers every eventuality. In sub zero temperatures, butane will burn poorly so propane is a better option. If you’re travelling to Europe then Camping Gaz butane cylinders are easy to find whilst the Calor propane are not – we stock a simple adapter that enables to quickly switch from one type of cylinder to the other.
- Seats and Beds
Belted seating for 4, fully tested to all European regulations, converting with swivelled front seats into either 2 single beds each measuring 60cm x 185cm, or an option of one double bed measuring 120cm x 200cm.
Our Taransay T5 conversion is fitted as standard with European manufactured rear seats specifically shaped for travelling, whilst also folding easily into completely flat beds – guaranteeing you a comfortable night’s sleep free of lumps and bumps!
When folded down and combined with the fully swivelled front seats, each single bed measures 60cm wide and 185cm long – there is also an optional extra on the seat design that with a small gap in between the front seats, enables them to be slid together over the centre aisle to create a 120cm wide double bed that is also 200cm long – that’s 6ft 5inches!
Both seats are fitted with integrated 3 point seat belts and the seat installation has been safety tested by Jerba Campervans to European Whole Vehicle Type Approval regulations – the highest level of European safety testing. Simulating an actual accident these regulations physically test the methods we use to secure the rear seats into our Sanna camper conversion.
With the seat frame remaining fixed and just the cushion section moving, the slide system will also allow you to slide either seat forward by 20cm for both travel or leisure – with children sat behind the front seats this option allows you to move them closer to you for picking up those dropped toys without too far to reach! Please note though that it’s not possible to slide the two rear single seats together for travelling.
- Insulation & Flooring
We don’t scrimp on insulation and aim to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Our high quality commercial grade flooring is non slip and looks great!
All our T5 campervan conversions are fully insulated behind all side cavity panels with a non allergenic, non irritant insulation that is comprised of 85% recycled plastic bottles and is an excellent and environmentally friendly insulation. UK manufactured by YBS Insulation it carries the brand name Non Itch, it has excellent Thermal Resistance and it is totally free from floating fibres or dust so avoids skin irritation and respiratory problems often associated with other forms of insulation. Being a plastic based product Non Itch will also never absorb any moisture or water and it also rates highly for sound deadening properties.
Beneath our birch plywood floor we aim also to maximise the insulation and sound deadening properties of the campervan. We never secure our birch plywood floor by simply drilling screws through the factory steel van floor, we always bond down battens and then screw our floor into these – it gives a very secure hold that keeps your steel van floor totally intact and free from any possible water ingress. On the underside of the plywood floor we also bond a layer of foil bubble insulation that maximises the insulating and sound deadening properties.
All the rear interior sides are fully trimmed in a specialised automobile carpet lining. This keeps you warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer and avoids condensation forming on the vehicle’s interior metal bodywork. We don’t simply clip on plastic panels or avoid trimming difficult areas.
For the floor we find that most customers are looking for a practical easy cleaning solution which is hard wearing and most importantly non slip, so we fit a commercial grade vinyl that you’d normally find in locations such as sports centres. Available in a range of colours and finishes, wet shoes will always find a grip and with a super tough material you certainly won’t find the floor ripping, chipping and tearing.
- Elevating or High Top Roof
Top quality German made elevating roof with a maximum closed height of 2 metres. Solid high top roof option also available.
As standard our Taransay T5 conversion is fitted with a top quality German made elevating roof that when closed gives the campervan a maximum height of 2 metres – taking you under most car park height barriers. Midge proof (not just mosquito!) mesh on both zipped opening side windows is standard and a front opening clear window lets daylight flood in. With breathable natural cotton sides you’ll never suffer from condensation on the inside – a problem that non breathing plastic material elevating roofs experience on almost a nightly basis.
We also offer a solid fixed high top roof option on the Taransay. This includes two opening high level side windows, a roof vent skylight and extra high level storage cupboards which aren’t possible within an elevating roof.
- Awning Rails, Awnings and Sunshades
To attach any awning to the side of your T5 then you’ll first need an awning rail. The rail we use blends in to match the van and we stock a small range of high quality free standing awnings and sunshades.Read more
- Bike Rack
An easy fold down bike rack system that can carry up to four bikes with no need t remove the rack when it’s not in use. It’s secured with steel clamps, so is far more secure than the more familiar webbing straps.Read more
- Cassette Toilet
Simple to use and lightweight to handle, we design all our conversions so that the toilet is very easy to access and can always be simply stored out of sight.Read more
- Flat Glass Plate Diesel Fuelled Hob
No gas in your van and a flat glass wipe down surface – just two of the benefits of a diesel fired hob. Using the van’s own diesel tank for the fuel supply, you’ll never have to be concerned about running out of gas.Read more
- Grills and Warming Oven
If you can’t be without your toast or crispy bacon then a grill may be a must for you – but remember that it will be a the cost of cupboard storage space.Read more
- Hot Air Heating and Cool Blowing Fan

- Safe Box
With 3mm solid steel sides and a high quality 3 barrel lock, our safe boxes are always securely located fully out of sight. Easily big enough for an ipad and other essentials to be hidden away.Read more
