Ducky started life as a factory standard VW Transporter Shuttle with twin sliding doors & tailgate. The brief from our clients was to tweak things to offer them more flexibility as a weekend camper – as well as bringing some of our signature features to alter the appearance & feel.
Once the factory internals were all stripped, we got started by adding sound deadening to the rear area & cab, before insulating and sealing up with a vapour barrier. The double bench seat was replaced with a swiveling single to give the classic captains chairs layout.
Once the engineered oak flooring had been laid, we installed our signature floating timber strips ceiling to compliment. The RIB Altair full width Rock ‘n’ Roll bed followed – with custom built Birch Plywood storage underneath with USB Quick Charge outlets.
A custom built riser step between the rear & cab was added, along with a storage cubby between the driver & passenger seats. This also offers USB Quick Charge outlets – as well as housing the controls for the Victron Energy powered electrical system and Eberspacher D2 diesel heater.
The cargo area of the van was given custom built storage boxes over the wheel arches to house the electrical system and upgraded Alpine 6×9 Speakers – with a further 12v cigar style outlet to run the all important coolbox.
The final touch was to add our favourite Stiches + Steel Multi Rail for our clients to be able to attach their awesome Bell Tent style awning for those fun-packed family adventures!
Overall we were delighted with how Ducky turned out, striking the right balance between day to day family use – to weekend camper – all the while maintaining a premium & unique look & feel inside…
