Bayside Camper

The Bayside Camper Conversion from Van Creations

The Bayside Camper Conversion is a 2 or 4 Berth camper that meets the demands of the most adventurous.

This camper conversion is a simple yet practical conversion that is full of useful features.

Included is a RIB Bed seat in the rear with the "Traditional design" furniture incorporating a front loading Waeco Fridge and SMEV 9222 Twin hob and sink combo.

Available in 2 or 4 Berth.

The 4 berth version includes an Elevating "Pop Top" Roof from Westdubs. These roof use high quality laser cut stainless steel scissor hinges and vacuum moulded shell.

All versions of roofs that we fit provide extra height at the rear by utilising gas struts and scissor hinge designs.


Rear Seats & Beds

The RIB Bed seat in the back is comfortable for long journeys and the pull tested safety design eliminates any doubts of the seats rigidity. The RIB Bed easily transforms into a double bed for easy night time solution.

All RIB Seats fitted by us include the full fitting kit used underneath the floor attached to the chassis. It's a little more expensive than some other installation methods but safety is paramount to us and we will not fit a RIB Seat without this.

In the Bayside Conversion we install a RIB Seat is a 112cm width finished in a choice of VW fabrics. This seat can then match up to your existing front seats to keep a uniform finish.

Other choices of fabric are available at time of order but lead times can change as these are made to order. If you have a specific colour you require please talk to us about it at the time of order.

Leather Upgrade is also available for the RIB seat or we can re-trim your complete van.

(4 berth only) - The “pop top” Elevating Roofs are a fantastic solution for extra sleeping room as well as providing comfortable living space. With the roof up this gives plenty of standing room height and makes the camper extremely spacious. Come night time the bed section is lowered to provide comfortable accommodation above in the form of a double bed, A great solution to extra sleeping space.


Kitchen & Rear Furniture

The Bayside camper uses high quality lightweight furniture built to the highest of standards for a perfect finish every time.

The design on this conversion includes a SMEV 9222 Twin hob & sink combo and a 49 litre front loading fridge giving plenty of worktop space. With the larger 49l front loading fridge it allows for plenty of refrigeration capacity and is extremely efficient.





The SMEV 9222 Twin hob cooker and sink combo is the ideal setup in this camper giving plenty of room for cooking with two pans and also a decent sized sink. With the hob/sink combo's split glass lid you can also use it as worktop space and simply open one lid or the other for either sink or hob use.



Our camper conversions come complete with 230v Electric hookup. Included is the Victron Energy Smart Battery Charger for use at camp sites with mains hook up facilities or at home. This gives you full 230v mains power to the on board sockets (when on hook up) to use at home or away and will maintain your leisure battery at its optimum with the latest Victron Energy Smart Battery charger.

The Victron Energy Smart Battery Charger is Bluetooth enabled allowing you to connect your smartphone to the unit to control the functions and monitor your charger. A fantastic device for you to monitor charging easily via the app.

Also included in the Bayside is a 110ah heavy duty leisure battery for the camper to become self contained with its own 12v supply, ready for your adventures into furthest parts of the countryside. Installed in the rear is two USB sockets (1.5a & 2.1a) and a 12v outlet.

The 12v system powers the USB outlets, Water Pump and all LED Lighting. Installed is 5 x Recessed LED Touch lights, individually controlled by touch and also controlled via a pillar mounted switch by the side door. Installed over the Hob Sink area is an LED Light shelf. This offers practical storage for smaller items and containers whilst also offering a fully dimmable LED Strip light.

The leisure battery is charged via a DC to DC Victron Charger when on the move. These offer the most efficient way of charging a leisure battery and will keep the 12v battery at its optimum.



Included in the Bayside Conversion is the addition of the rear speaker install.

We use Oxygen Free Cable for your speaker wires to give the ultimate clarity to your sounds. The speakers are installed in the overhead rear locker above the RIB Bed Seat and add that extra volume in the back for rear passengers or for when your stationary in the camper.

We currently install the Alpine Type G Coaxial Speakers. Built to handle high power, The new Type-G Series of component and coaxial speakers are designed and built to handle high power levels. This speaker also delivers good sound quality, due to a soft dome tweeter, square voice coil wire with Kapton bobbin and an audio tuned capacitor.

Rear speaker upgrades are also available. Talk to us about this option or let us know if you have a particular speaker you would like us to install.



The van is fully insulated with Thermo Acoustic insulation and carpet lined in 4 way stretch carpet offered in a choice of colours (Anthracite, Smoke, Silver, Dark Blue, Pacific Blue).

A new 12mm WBP Plywood floor built on 9mm battens is also included, this is insulated and topped with an Altro non slip flooring vinyl. We will run through colour options and samples before we start.

The roof lining is removed and the roof is insulated in 7mm Closed Cell Thermal Acoustic insulation. The roof lining is then trimmed to your preference.

"Black Out" Curtains are included for both side windows and on the rear tailgate or barn doors and really give a nice warm finish to the van and add the required privacy.

Also included in the Bayside conversion is 5 x Recessed LED Lights. These brighten up the night and are a low power consumption solution. Controlled from a main switch located on the pillar by the sliding door.

Also included is the LED Lighting bar above the sink and cooker to give plenty of lighting when cooking or washing up.
