VW Registered Converter and NCC Approved
VW Registered Body Builder
Jerba Campervans is one of a very small number of UK campervan converters who are officially registered as a Vehicle Body Builder for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. This registration process can only be achieved by invitation of Volkswagen and requires strict compliance with a wide range of key areas – from full Type Approval safety testing to ISO9001 quality systems certification.
This official registration means we have a direct contractual agreement with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – the supply of our new VW T6 vans is undertaken by the VW Edinburgh Van Centre.
Jerba Campervans is also a full member of the NCC (National Caravan Council) and we have vehicle approval certification for our five T6 conversion layout – the Tiree, Cromarty, Taransay, Sanna & Jura.
NCC vehicle certification approval assesses if a campervan or motorhome is safe place in which to live and sleep. The assessment for the approval requires a very detailed examination of each individual conversion layout which is completed against around eight different British Standard and European regulations – these cover everything from gas and electrical installations to ventilation and fire prevention.
Very few UK campervan converters have passed this approval certification, however, it is a very important mark of quality and demonstrates a converter’s commitment to customer safety.
It’s important to remember that NCC vehicle certification does not examine if a vehicle is safe to drive on the road, that separate assessment is known as Type Approval and is coordinated by the VCA (Vehicle Certification Agency) from within the government Department for Transport.
