JAL MPV Import

Motorhome Conversions

mushroom roof with roof rack

Bongo Motorhome conversions are proving very popular, in the main due to Bongos arriving in the Uk when at top levels having outstanding body condition, sometimes it is hard to believe the age they are.

With Japan using low or non levels of salt we have seen 15-19 year old Bongos that are in the same condition as uk cars of 2-3 years of age.

Please note this applies mainly to the few importers at top level.

Coupled with outstanding body condition even underneath on uk entrance and Japanese reliability buying a Japanese import is quite different from buying a uk vehicle, this is why people invest in them for conversions.

JAL have been producing high quality conversions since 2006, and supply to the public and trade. We have several production lines, which cater for conversions and roofs for imports, and also general bespoke builds.

Vohringer is a key product for us, as the assured quality and recognised product allows us to build with confidence and we are still buying back and reselling our very first conversions in incredible condition.

We do have an alternative wood with an enormous range of colours and it holds a comparable quality and value to Vohringer, but broadens the colour base, we still advise Vohringer as number one, but it is there as a great option.

For the mighty Bongo we produce 17 different conversion options, the Elgrand 2-4, Alphard 3-6, Regius 3, and a full bespoke build for all ranges.

You are welcome to bring a photograph or drawing of a design and we can quote and build for you.

Speed is sometimes key, and the 3rd production line we have is built for this, so if you’re in need of  a conversion either standard or bespoke, for a little extra it can be completed.

Two versions available:

  1. Spaceship 2 with no Rear Cupboard so allows extra Light, ie great for artists and book-reading in natural daylight.
  2. Spaceship 3 with Rear Cupboard, the most popular.

ALL our conversions are built using VOHRINGER woods which is a tough water resistant material. This is the industry standard material at top level and helps with re-sale values as it does not mark easily and more importantly will not “fluff” if it gets soaked with water, which cheaper boards do. Please note that some top conversion companies have changed from VOHRINGER in an effort to reduce build costs, some boards are made to look similar and cost approx a 5th of the cost. It’s an important point, so look out for the Vohringer mark and if someone says they are installing Vohringer for you always ask for the quote in writing that Vohringer is being supplied.

Each Spaceship 2 and 3 version comprises of the following:

  • Fridge-large luxury under-bed Fridge, 12v powered.
  • Sink and Hob-Twin Smev unit with Stainless steel sink, and Twin Hob with a luxury Dark Glass protective lid.
  • Top Locker storage.
  • Zig Cf9-split charger and 240v to 12v inversion, secondary split charger relay so can charge both on the move and via hook up at home or on site.

  • Electric hook-up point, with external plug in point built into side of the van, with built in RCD protector.
  • 240v plug points installed in conversion units.
  • Storage can be in slim-medium sized side cabinets, with good storage under the rock n roll bed. Hatches at rear can be open, small doors or large door, you can choose. Should serious storage be required, tow bar bak rak systems can be fitted.

Why Vohringer ?

The woods used in your camper conversion are very important and Vohringer is the benchmark of high standards and indeed the industry base mark.

We see many converters start with Vohringer then move to cheaper woods that look the same in an effort to save money.

Vohringer is super light weight and very strong but most of all it has a very strong water resistance, unlike cheaper boards that soak up water.

More importantly Vohringer will stand the test of time and not delaminate quickly like some.

In 2016 we bought back for resale a conversion we completed 10 years ago and the wood was in the same beautiful condition we supplied. Cheaper boards we have seen with our competitors flake in 2-3 years.

We have now expanded the range we do and have included 16 Vohringer colours as well as our enormous choice of floors and upholstery.

If you have conversion completed elsewhere please ask the conversion company to state in writing they are indeed installing genuine Vohringer woods.

Thank You
