New for 2023 is the CJL Adventure Coast – an exciting new camper layout featuring a full width bed and an integrated and robust rear storage drawer on runners.
This conversion has been thoughtfully engineered to ensure maximum sleeping space in the main body of the van along with a huge amount of storage. It has the same functionality as a traditional camper in a stunning new layout.
The Coast is a super flexible layout and can be ordered with or without twin gas hobs and sink.
Buy a new unregistered van from us and not only will you get a great deal on the price of the van, the van will be registered as a motorcaravan from first registration. Choose from our range of stock vans or spec your own from factory from one of our reserved build slots. New unregistered base van builds are European whole vehicle type approved, NCC approved and the warranty period matches the base vehicle (3 years). CJL Leisure are one of only 5 VW Motorhome Qualified Converters.
Please note CJL layout plans show only a single seat up front. A double seat (twin bench) is available for each layout, meaning that the ‘Adventure Coast’ can travel up to 5 adults.
We are also able to drop an additional rail into the floor so that an extra single Caravelle seat can be fitted if required.
The Adventure Coast layout can travel 5 passengers and has 4 berths. It offers a super-compact kitchenette packed with the usual features of a twin gas hob, sink, fridge, and drawer storage. This layout allows for the ability to switch easily and comfortably between travel, socializing, dining and sleeping.

Yes – you can bring us a van to convert or buy a base vehicle from us. If you buy a VW from us you will benefit from a 3-year conversion warranty to match the 3-year mechanical warranty on the base vehicle. On a customer-supplied vehicle the warranty is 2 years. A panel van is the most cost-effective base van if you are looking for a full camper conversion.
If you want to change the spec of the base vehicles we supply, we simply update the build spec on the next CJL van due to be built at factory. This means that unless there are VW factory production issues with a certain model or part, we are normally able to have your van built and delivered to us very quickly. Popular spec changes would be to a 4Motion vehicle, addition of a second sliding door to a twin slider (great for bike vans and European travel) and occasionally a SWB van.
Yes – we can change a double bench to a single Cpt’s seat and vice versa – a single seat to a double if required.

Yes – there are 5 companies in the UK who are VW qualified motorhome converters including CJL Leisure. Many companies claim to be VW-qualified or approved when they are not.

Your vehicle will be ‘type approved’ so will be registered as a motorhome / camper from first registration. This means taxation class is less expensive than for commercial vehicles and speed limits are as per a car, provding the van is under 3.5T.
