 Campervans are for days out or weeks away
For staycations or driving abroad, a Risby company have fashioned the perfect family getaway with their Retrofitted VW Campervans
How did the business start?
David Custance launched Retrofitted a few years back, inspired by a childhood of VW campervan holidays with his parents, crossed with his exceptional engineering talent in motorsport, it set us on a firm footing. Mikey Ennis later joined as creative director. Throw in a carpenter and an upholsterer into the mix, all with an eye for design and a will to create something truly unique, and that takes us to the product we deliver today.
How big is your team?
We are a small core team in effect, but the efficient use of many other small local businesses helps us with the finished product.
The pandemic has prompted interest in staycations allied to social distancing – I guess this is where a specially fitted Campervan has great appeal?
Absolutely - as a business we were fine pre-pandemic, but the fact that we live on a relatively small island, with great links to Europe, only bolsters what we do as an
amazing alternative to airports and hotels. Our product is everything you need, and in terms of cost, works out way more efficient for a family of four, whilst
the travel memories may well outweigh those of any sitting around an airport terminal. We take the view the journey is the destination!
Do you get business from far and wide – not just East Anglia?
Yes indeed, our brand and product is so unique, that when a customer finds us they seem only too happy to travel to Suffolk, we have now got a Retrofitted conversion on every corner of the UK.
What kind of fittings do you specialise in?
We design and install bespoke Campervan interiors, marrying functionality and flexibility with a
