Meet The Team

Conversion Specialists

When your VW T6 arrives at Jerba Campervans we carefully strip the van interior at the back to create a bare shell. We then proceed to cut off the roof and install the strengthening frame. Once the new frame is in place we insulate and line with carpet and fit all internal wiring looms for speakers and lights. Our Jerba elevating roof is then put on. Your van will then move to the electric and plumbing technicians where the leisure battery, Wallas hob, Webasto heating, speakers are all fitted along with the underside water tank with sensors.

Vince

Your vans first stop will be with Vince our schedule supervisor. Your van will be stripped and the roof will be removed and refitted with our Jerba Elevating Roof. Vince’s previous experience in management for large food and drink brands has given him the patience to teach apprentice conversion fitters. This ensures that Jerba Campervans can continue to grow and still maintain its high level of quality. We predict that Vince will be the next Jerba employee with a campervan.

Gareth

Gareth is the newest member of the team here at Jerba. Having spent 9 years working as a chef he decided it was time to try something new and set his course for Jerba Campervans. Gareth is a Conversion Specialist and will be working along side supervisor Vince to learn the ropes and settle in to a his new role here at Jerba. 

John

Finishing Carpenters

After your VW T6 has been prepped by the conversion specialists it is then moved onto the finishing carpenters. This is where all the furniture is made and then fitted into the van by our experienced master craftsmen. Our finishing carpenters pride themselves on their excellent craftsmanship and their high quality finish.
