Since its launch in 2016 CJL Leisure Vehicles has quickly earned a reputation for the highest quality van conversions. Owner Cye Hayes was formerly Head of Design & Development at Bailey of Bristol, where his role was to bring engineering expertise used in other industries to the UK leisure vehicle sector. Transferring these skills to his own business, Cye now employs a range of mechanical, electrical and compliance engineers to ensure the CJL mark is consistent with nothing less than engineering excellence.
Highly functional and safe, a CJL van is engineered to Cye’s exacting standards and the CJL logo represents a mark of quality.
