About us

Southlands Motor Company is a family run business dedicated to our passion, converting and selling VW Campervans

We also specialise in quality privately sourced used cars which are handpicked for general sale, not from auctions, all having full service history, great specification, low owners and presented to the highest standard possible. In a market where there are thousands of car dealers all claiming to be the best, we excel in the condition of each of our vehicles, and our constant support throughout your ownership, which is backed up with the 12 months warranty we provide with every car we sell!

Our true passion lies in the Campervan side of our business, which we started in 2011. We initially started importing MPV vehicles from Japan and having them converted into Campervans, which eventually lead to us entering into the VW market in early 2012, and since then as they say the rest is history!

Southlands Motor Company

Our camper specialists Lee and Paul have spent the last 8 years tweaking and redesigning the vans to adapt to change in current market needs, with company Director Darren working tirelessly to source the perfect vans to convert directly from his main dealer contacts. The improvements and modifications during the last 8 years are plain to see, the campervan you see today really leaves no box or option left unticked in terms of comfort and specification.

We use 2 conversion companies, completing a minimum of 2 to 3 vans a week, which are often secured before they hit the showroom, such is the demand for a #teamsouthlands van, however, we will happily source a base van and convert it to your own unique specification even allowing you to pick all of the colour options and specification inside including leather, body kit options sidebars, tent colours and alloy wheels, meaning you really can make all your camper dreams come true!

We will also happily help sourcing accessories for any van purchased from us including multi rails, awnings and cosmetic parts, along with performance upgrades too, meaning we really are a one-stop shop!

Please contact the team regardless of where you are in the camper buying cycle, some customers are ready to buy immediately, others are looking to the future, but regardless we are always happy to answer any questions or queries, and also show you around our vans!
