Hi there,

I've been researching campers for some time now and have decided (ish... I've been "researching" for a long time...) that getting one converted for me makes sense. I want a reasonably new (couple of years) poptop RHD camper. Poptop due to parking restrictions. RHD because it seems safer to drive but folks on the forum seem to be easy either way.

Anyway, I've found a couple of places that do conversions in Ireland and was wondering if people have some addresses or numbers of people they are aware of. There are loads in the UK but thats kinda pricey right now.

I've found

www.cosyclassics.ie
http://caratechconversions.tripod.com/

What else is out there?

Base vehicle isn't really important but LWB suits me for storing surf boards.

I don't really have the time or more importantly the experience to spend 1000's on a kit and fit it myself. I'm sure I'd figure it out but at that money I'd sooner have a pro do it and be sure its done right that spend months doing it myself and not quite be happy.

Feel free to point me at the appropriate thread if this question has already been asked.
