The Greenline Difference
Our mission is to build highly practical and stylish vans to the highest standards, utilising efficient production techniques to keep prices very competitive and minimise the environmental impact of our vans.
By listening to our customers and using our experience not just as van converters but as long standing campervan users, we build our vans full of the practical touches you’ll appreciate when camping. From major things such as maximising the storage space within our layouts, through placing switches and controls where they are at hand, and on to little touches such as providing a hanging rail for the tea towel to dry when travelling!
We select our cabinet finishes carefully to give our interiors a light, bright and airy feel, this is complimented by our standard upholstery. Although the customer is free to choose their own upholstery and we can offer a choice of cabinet finishes. We offer a range of popular options such as awnings, heaters and solar charging, within our layouts to help you get the van you want, we can also fit microwaves, cycle racks, and additional insulation, trim, and double glazed windows for prolonged winter camping.
The Difference is in the Detail
Our curtains are made from a heavy gauge material or lined to keep the sunrise out on those early summer mornings. Press studs ensure they are a good and reliable fit to the window surround!
Typical of our practical little touches - we provide a convenient place to hang your damp tea towels to dry! Note also the tie backs to hold your curtains out of the way during the day!
For your comfort, footrests for the swivelling cab seats are fitted as standard, however, you can choose to delete these if you need extra floor space for the dog’s basket!
Map storage pockets are included if you opt to have the cab-seats re-upholstered by us.
Upholstery is treated with Scotchgard™ protector as standard.
We can provide handy grab handles to ease your access to our vans.
We hope you’ll never need to use it, but we fit the latest generation of non-asphyxiating, no residue fire extinguisher.
Firetool - fitted as standard.
Also note, storage space in the footrests
Where some van converters get carried away with the latest laminates and sleek domestic style equipment and fittings, we never put style before substance. Not that there’s anything wrong with style of course, it’s just that it shouldn’t be at the expense of practicality!
Take, for instance the Smev glass topped hob and sink often used in conjunction with the separate Smev grill, this set up is commonplace in campervans but is very wasteful of space when compared to the compact hob and grill unit we favour, plus it’s made in Britain and is available with an equally compact oven. In all our designs, the fridge door can be opened with the bed set up! We are guided by some simple principles: firstly, identify as much space as possible for storage: secondly, make the lockers and storage areas as large as possible; and thirdly Make the storage as flexible as possible by providing adjustable and removable shelves and large doors.
If you specify the optional Webasto heater, you’ll be pleased to find it’s control is within arms reach of the duvet on chilly mornings! We also incorporate a change over switch so the heater, which is normally run from the leisure battery can be run from the vehicle battery in an emergency. Also the power supply to the fridge automatically switches from the leisure to vehicle battery when the engine is running.
Our vans feature high quality and fully specified 240v AC and 12v DC electrical systems. We use the Sargent charging and distribution system as found in many British built motorhomes. We favour the more efficient Vitrifrigo compressor fridges, although we can fit an absorption type if you intend to spend long periods off grid. We’ve also devised a way of connecting the compressor fridge to the 12v system that improves the charging rate of the leisure battery when driving. All our interior lighting is by low energy and super bright LEDs to give exceptionally good lighting. To further increase interior space we can offer under floor mounting of the leisure battery on certain base vehicles. Solar charging systems are available across our entire range of vans.
In some of our designs we can offer a gas locker large enough to take a small Calor gas bottle, these are less expensive to refill and hold more gas than the Campingas alternative. Better still, on some base vehicles we can fit an under floor bulk LPG tank, not only does this free up valuable storage space inside the van, but buying gas from the LPG station (these are quite common) costs less than a third of the price of bottled gas!
All of our layouts feature inboard fresh water tanks of a good size for a compact van, in the Slide-out and Rear Galley layouts in particular these are sited unobtrusively out of the way so little storage space is lost. A waste tank with an electrically operated drain valve can be specified so you can empty the tank by simply driving over the campsite drain point and flicking a switch without leaving the driving seat!
