Couldn’t have done a better job!

These guys couldn’t have done a better job. I’ve owned a few VW vans in the past and have spent many weekends away with my wife and two kids. This time I knew exactly spec I wanted, I shopped around the popular long established convertors but the problem was they are very expensive and the options were limited.

Incredible attention to detail

The guys at 8-Ball helped me find a van to convert and after a few meetings we agreed the spec and I got everything I wanted. I can’t fault the attention to detail. I also managed to save a couple of grand on the cost of the lifting roof, the finishing in my opinion is better that the SCA or Reimo ones.

Professional Quality

It’s been just over a month now since I picked up the van and although I have only managed one night in it so far, in a car park in Dundee, I have used it for many days out and I am more than impressed. The quality of fixtures and fittings and professional quality of the conversion is second to none that I have seen. Colin and Mike are both very friendly, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. The van was ready when they said it would be (in record time) and they kept me regularly updated on its progress.

8 Ball are the guys to see

Just to say, if anyone is looking to convert a VW, 8 ball are the guys to see. Sooooooooooo helpful its untrue. THANKS GUYS. Just to let you know we had our first trip to filey on friday, wow what a great time and the kids think the pop up roof is amazing

Sweet as a nut

Just a quick email to say we arrived back in Morzine no worries. The van ran sweet as a nut and we have to say we’re really chuffed with the van. She really is a cracker and it’s exactly what we were after.

So a big Thank You to yourself from me and Shona, and thats us starting to plan our first trips away.
Hope you have a great summer and give us a shout if you are out, and failing that I’ll see you out in Morzine next winter and we’ll get you sorted with your ski hire.

High Quality & Fully Customised

If you’re looking for a high quality and fully customised individual camper conversion then look no further than 8 Ball Campers in East Yorkshire. We fell in love with the idea of a small camper van this summer after introducing our 3 year old to camping and decided to buy a VW T5 for conversion.

We looked at dozens of conversion companies online, at shows and then went to visit four different builders to view their work and examples of conversions. 8 Ball stood out from the others mainly due to the all-round quality and attention to detail.

The hand built cabinets are beautifully put together and have a superb aluminium profiled edging where all others we viewed were rubber or laminate. The rest of the materials are superb and the choice of individual options is endless. The inclusion of a RIB seat/bed as part of the standard conversion is a must, as is the superbly functional Austop pop-up roof bed. Little things, like placing the fridge at the very end of the kitchen so you can still reach that chilled bottle of wine once you have the bed folded down!

We made some very specific demands on 8 ball for things such as a rear gas BBQ point, an onboard water tank, diesel heater and some rather quirky design options for our individual leather seats. All of this was taken onboard with relish by the team who seem to be every bit as excited by their projects as the customers and are keen to keep trying out new ideas.

We were involved with every decision throughout the build and kept up to speed with regular updates by phone, email and most importantly by Instagram with some excellent build photo’s and even a time-laps video of our Austop roof being installed.

We’re ecstatic with our new camper and even though it was delivered in winter, we are already using it for day trips to the moors, or the coast and the occasional night away. We have our diesel heater primed and ready for a December trip to visit relatives in France and an Alpine mountain biking holiday in the pipeline for 2016. Bring on the adventures!

Big thanks to Colin & Mike.

Comfortable Living

Hi to Colin, Mike and all at 8 ball camper van conversions. Thank you for doing a terrific job on our VW conversion. I used it for the first time this weekend and everything worked a treat. The comfortable living space and extra storage that your design gives us is incredible. We really look forward to using the vehicle to display our range of Outdoor Revolution awnings from at future trade shows and photo shoots. I would have no hesitation in recommending your conversions to the inevitable numbers of people who ask who did the conversion for us.

Keep up the good work.

8 Amazing Months

We just wanted to tell you that ‘Violet’ The van has been a reliable, comfortable, economical and all round wonderful member of the Verity family during our European tour.

We have visited France, Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Monte negro, Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and we are just about to leave Slovakia. Over the months we have become more and more daring with our camping off road in quiet and often spectacular out of the way places and she hasn’t let us down yet (better not tempt fate).

Thank you for the care and attention to detail you put into her- we often compliment the various design features as they make our lives slightly easier whilst we travel with two children under 8.

Once again Thank You

Prior to deciding to get 8 ball to convert our van, we travelled all over the country looking at different vans and converters and having used our van for over 6 months now, we have no regrets on our purchase, not one.

Every time we go away we have smiles on our faces, we are so pleased with the design and quality of the work that you put into the conversion.

Workmanship is superb

Colin, Mike, just a quick line to say thank you for the work carried out on my van yesterday. I know it wasn’t a massive issue but I suspect I have a touch of OCD when it comes to the van, my pride and joy, I like it to be ‘just so’.

The work was undertaken with the minimum of fuss and the workmanship is superb. Once again – thank you.

We are absolutely delighted

We are absolutely delighted with out 8BALL SWB2 conversion by Colin, Mike and the team at 8ball. Our conversion was ready in just 2 weeks and the attention to detail, customer care throughout and the explanation on how to use every aspect of the van was second to none. The conversion was a dream realised and I am so pleased we chose to go with 8Ball. Colin was so helpful from the beginning and took every effort to ensure we had discussed each aspect of the conversion. I thought I wanted several costly optional extras but when further discussed with Colin he had other ideas and options that meant I didn’t need as many extras as initially thought – they truly want what is best for you and your van rather than advertising optional extras that you don’t need.
