The concept with Momo was to deliver the ‘Slow Road Campers version’ of the classic VW California layout & set up (in an imported Left Hand Drive VW T6!)
We set up to use the best appliances, install a top end off-grid capable electrical system, tweak the layout & storage options to the very max – then finish everything with our usual clean, crisp styling.
The layout utilises a 3/4 width Rock ‘n’ Roll Seat/Bed + full run of cabinetry on the driver’s side, with the addition of an awesome Storm Poptops roof bed + push up ceiling… It’s a great option for SWB Transporter vans – giving balance to the living area, an enhanced feeling of space, plenty of storage and a definite feeling of ‘everything in it’s proper place’!
We retained the double passenger seat and added a Kirvans swivel to give maximum flexibility when parked up. In drive mode, the van can happily travel 5 adults in comfort – as the RIB Altair Rock ‘n’ Roll bed has 3-point safety belts (and are extremely comfortable into the bargain!) When it’s time for bed, the van will easily accommodate 2 adults in the roof bed upstairs + 2 adults downstairs on the full length bed.
We’ve kept the kitchen deliberately simple, with a Dometic stainless steel sink & matching stainless steel tap. This is served by a 25L fresh water tank directly underneath via a Whale submersible pump, draining into a further 25L waste water tank. The worksurface next to the sink has been left open for your choice of either a gas or induction hob & to keep everything cool we’ve installed the superb little Alpicool 35L fridge unit under the RNR bed.
The worksurfaces are solid staved oak – along with the matching fold down table. We opted for a stand-alone table in this build to offer maximum flexibility. The table can be used inside & outside and is quick & easy to put up + adjust.
The storage options in this little van are vast! There are 4 generously sized drawers in the main kitchen area, all with Baltic Birch Plywood interiors & RV Labs pull catches in Stainless Steel. The tall side unit houses the electrics below 2 large shelves (accessed with 2 sleek pop-off panels) and an open top shelf, with the excellent Kiravans door store in the sliding door offering even more places to stash your gear. For your larger items there’s a further compartment under the RNR bed – as well as 2 huge storage cupboards in the rear of the van.
The interior styling is understated, using Farrow & Ball’s ‘Ammonite’ on all of the cabinetry & vertical surfaces. The engineered oak floor & solid staved oak worksurfaces & matching table give contrast to the beautiful ‘Deep Ocean Blue’ bodywork.
The exterior styling was giving the Slow Road treatment with the addition of 17″ VW Steel wheels in Matt Black with BF Goodrich K02 All-Terrain tyres for that rugged ‘Black Boots’ look that we love!
For driving comfort & safety we installed our Slow Road favourite – the Alpine F903D Halo unit, providing a huge 9″ touch screen for super-safe Sat Nav, Media and Phone use while driving. Then to enhance the audio experience we added the incredible Alpine SPC-108T6 Component Speaker package. Get ready to hear some next levels sounds from this pairing!
Other stand out features in Momo include the 2Kw Diesel Heater by MV Airo, the excellent Awning/Multirail by Vamoose – which when paired with the Tarp Awning by Stiches + Steel creates an awesome outdoor party space!
