DETAILED REVIEW

Campervan converters, Rolling Homes, celebrate their tenth year in business this year and have marked the occasion with the build of this brilliant but totally bonkers campervan.

Costing over £100,000 (they stopped counting at this point!), it’s their most expensive-ever Volkswagen camper.

Known as the Edition 10, it’s a one-off conversion that was unveiled to the public at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show, held at the Birmingham NEC earlier this year.

The Edition 10 is based on a Volkswagen T6 Kombi with a 204PS diesel engine and DSG automatic gearbox. The body paint is finished in a subtle duo-tone paint scheme with a black top half and a deep red metallic lower half.

This ultimate Rolling Homes camper has a bespoke bodykit featuring completely new front and rear bumpers, too.

This unique styling alone costs £6,000 before painting and fitting, while the alloy wheels add another £7,000 and the lowered suspension comes in at £1,600.

Inside, the vehicle is described as having leather “everywhere you can physically fit it”, as well as beautifully handcrafted walnut furniture with curved cupboard doors that really make the Edition 10 stand out from the crowd, where you go.

In the roof there are so many LED lights that it's like looking up at a starry night sky!

There’s also an Alpine audio system, lithium ion batteries, flyscreens throughout, a 150W solar panel, the latest SCA elevating roof and a special exhaust system.

Company boss, Mark Cooper, says of this very special VW, “Everything that I can throw at it tastefully has been done.” He has built the campervan for himself but intends to sell it if the right buyer comes along... That said, it’s rumoured that he turned down an offer of £110k for it on the first day of the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show…

Rolling Homes report having built a record 70 campervans in 2018 and are planning to increase production to 80 units this year, but there will only ever be one of these ultimate anniversary editions.

While you may not be able to get your hands on it, Rolling Homes do offer a great selection of alternative vans that you can buy, instead.

In fact, their Volkswagen Transporter-based Columbus camper was awarded third place in the ‘Campervans over £45k’ category of the Caravan and Motorhome Design Awards 2019.

The Rolling Homes lowdown

Shropshire-based Rolling Homes have been in business for a decade now and they pride themselves on the fact that every campervan conversion they undertake is unique and bespoke - hence the Edition 10!

They’re renowned for their VW T6-sized campers although they also offer conversions built on Ford and Mercedes, and there’s a style and layout to suit everyone – including wheelchair-friendly camper conversions.

Alternatively, if you already have a van of your own, Rolling Homes can convert it for you to meet your own specific requirements.
