Sally and Brett have owned several caravans and a motorhome when their children were growing up. When they fly the nest the semi-retired couple decided to try the camper van experience.They viewed several conversions, some which had more than they needed and some less so they then took the decision to purchase a T5 and have it converted to get just what they wanted.
Sally said: “We met with several local conversion companies but weren’t really confident in the quality of the finished product or the advice on offer….then we met with Chilli Jam Vans and frankly haven’t looked back.
“From the very first meeting we were made to feel welcome and valued as customers. We were able to convey our ideas to Brett and Kat who used their vast knowledge and experience to guide us through the conversion process. Nothing was ever too much trouble.The range Chilli Jam offers is excellent and the quality of finish throughout is simply perfect – it reflects the care and attention to detail the team provide.
“I can honestly say that we couldn’t have wished for better with our finished van!”
Sally and Brett are off to explore the UK initially with a view to seeing more of Europe next year. Sally added: “Having our van will bring years of happy motoring and exploring as we approach retirement and beyond!”
