    Loved the 101 RV day jointly delivered by Pia & Oli and Richard from iMotorhome. We learned so much from very experienced RV experts. If I ever need someone to do some work on our RV we will not hesitate to take it to Southern Spirit Campervans.

    As a new motorhome owner “Rookie day” on 12 March 20016 at Southern Spirit was perfect. Learnt so much in one day, now feel more confident to manage and look after my “home away from home”.

    Thankyou to my motorhome family Pia and Oli for a great day and BBQ.

    In 2014 I acquired a new VW Transporter T5 with the aim of converting it in to a quality campervan. I found Southern Spirit Campervans by chance after I had spoken to a couple of other conversion companies.
    Oli and Pia are master craftsmen and their work is impeccable. It is scary having the roof cut from your brand new vehicle but they have done a marvelous job fitting a European style tilt roof which provides an incredible stand-up height over the kitchen and living areas. There are screened windows on each side which are safe to leave open at night as they are high off the ground and they provide ample ventilation. It is so easy to erect and pull down, much easier than a standard pop-top roof.
    I had a 3 month trip to north-west Queensland and the Gulf of Carpentaria striking a few 38 deg days at Lawn Hill NP and the inside of the van was still quite comfortable to sit in during that heat. The sliding door is also screened. I travelled on kilometers of dirt roads and the furniture did not move.
    Any problems that occur or any extra requirements are sorted out in a friendly and professional manner. Pia has many useful suggestions to help you decide on the things that you might not know about. They have been very helpful to me and I am extremely happy with my campervan.

    We bought our commercial van soon to be our little RV just before Christmas and were rather hoping to enjoy some RV time over the break. On the off chance I could get a awning I gave Southern Spirit a call and Pia had the awning delivered and fitted, including fabricating special brackets. All very professional indeed, I was doing the internal fit out and Pia came up with all the bits and bobs that take hours of online searching. So helpful and the workmanship prompt and professional. Thank you Southern Spirit 🙂 one happy camper

    I had some zip door fly screens made up for toyota hitop van. As I was ordering from Adelaide, and Southern Spirit are in Brisbane, it was important to have good customer assistance. Pia was really responsive to all my queries, helped get the measurements right, and got the product to me in good time. We also managed to have a few laughs over the phone (she can explain…) We were on a timeline, and had to get them urgently, and they arrived pretty much next day after she let me know the screens were made. The product was easy to fit, and are proving effective. Thanks Southern Spirit!

    Hello, we are very happy owners of a iload camper done by Pia and Olli at Southern Spirt Campervans. We needed someone in Queensland to do the conversion and gave Pia a call. The iload is a mid size van so you do not have any extra room to play with but after some basic ideas and a trip down south we left our basic van with them.
    They then put a pop up roof on and did a wonderful convsersion, now we just throw some beer and food in her and we are off, its amazing by just having a pop up roof how much extra room you get and the fridge, microwave and spirt burner make it easy.
    In the future we want a 4×4 camper and will se what Pia can come up with.
    Thanks Again, love it.
    Recommend Souhern Spirt to anyone.

    Thank You
    Graham & Deb

    We had the unfortunate experience of having our campervan inundated with water during the pre Christmas heavy downpours and with all the wood work being MDF, the bedding framework and the entire floor just swelled up and would not dry out. We were very fortunate to discover the Southern Spirit website and were convinced after speaking to Pia that they were the best equipped repairer to fix the problems. As her recommendation was to use a lighter weight ply to replace all the floor and bedding we were happy that we would not experience another similar occurrence should we ever have the same water problems in the future.
    Pia also made some recommendations regarding colours for the fabric and flooring which turned out to be more suitable than our original choices so in the end we were happy to leave it all to her and are very happy with the result overall. Ollie also made some recommendations to other parts of the van that required attention, most of which I was not aware, so am grateful for his suggestions.
    We are very happy to recommend Pia and Ollie to any campervan enthusiast who may need any work done to their van.

    Ive upgraded from my old 4×4 express to a transporter and am just starting to deck it out myself bit by bit. With a short trip coming up before my big endless travel around aus I came across pia and olis handy work.
    They made some beautiful custom bits for my new van and their service around the clock was absolutely outstanding especially considering our interstate distance. Their help, understanding and ideas were wonderful and I had my shipment delivered pronto.
    10/10 product and service.
    I will definetly be calling back to help get my van finished!!!!
    Thanks for all your help guys!

    Our brand new Southern Spirit Hiace Camper is, quite simply, terrific. Organising the fit out of a new vehicle with us in NSW and Pia and Oli in Brisbane was a dream. All our design ideas were creatively incorporated into the fit out by the quality workmanship of Oli and his team. Attention to every detail is the hallmark of the work of Southern Spirit Campers, we could not have asked for better. All our silly and seemingly endless questions answered promptly and expertly.

    We do seem to spend a lot of time just sitting in our van even when it is in the garage, we love it.

    I recently had my 2nd hand motorhome serviced at Southern Spirit.
    Pia and Oli were kind enough to take time out to make sure I was familiar with all aspects of the fit out, even updating and printing me a manual.
    Olis workmanship is very professional and Pias product knowledge and willingness to help, had me back on the road in no time.
    I trusted their advice, I found their pricing fair, their efforts great, and I am definitely a return customer.

    Maintaining our 19 year-old Toyota Hiace campervan is a challenge. Replacement accessories are always hard to find and are often the expense on an old vehicle cannot be justified. On our recent trip to North Qld from home in Melbourne it became obvious the fridge needed replacement. After googling many campervan conversion businesses without success we came across Southern Spirit Campervans. No one could have been more helpful. We arranged to call in at Geebung on our way home.
    Pia and Olli suggested using a used Engel fridge they had in store from an earlier campervan upgrade. It was the latest model, only 4 years old and in good working order. On arrival at the factory Olli gave the job his immediate attention. Pia had ordered a Waeco fridge to be delivered the next day in case the Engel would not fit in the space available. Olli soon discovered the Engel was larger than the old one but came up with some adjustments to the cupboard, a perfect solution at half the cost.
    We were much impressed with their concern to solve our rather minor issues and their efforts to get us on the road again without delay. For them no job is too small or too large.
    Thank you very much Pia & Olli.
    Allan & Adelaide,

    I just wanted to pass on to other members from Brisbane who may be looking for some minor repairs to their motorhome that I would highly recommend The service we got from Oli and Pia from Southern Spirit Campervans at Gebung,
    I saw their ad in the last copy of The Wanderer and rang them to chat to get some ideas and spent 2 hours at their premises,
    They were helpful and came up with innovative ideas that actually saved me money and did not try to sell me anything.
    They deserve to succeed as their attention to the customer and meeting our needs was greatly appreciated by this novice.

    We took our 2008 Ford Transit Van to Pia and Oli for conversion just over two years ago. We were a little nervous a this was the first bigger and better van they had converted. However we were thrilled with the result. They were easy to work with and helped design what we wanted. They are innovative and the workmanship and materials of high quality. Two years on the follow up has been excellent when we needed gear checked and some additions.
    We highly recommend Sothern Spirit.

    I am on to my second camper van (Moby II) and this time I chose a 4×4 Mercedes Sprinter 4×4.

    I must admit, I was nervous about handing over a brand new vehicle to Southern Spirit but my fears quickly faded as work began. The level of innovation and skill was amazing and Pia and Oli seemed to be able to make any of my weird requests happen.

    The end result has far exceeded my expectations. I now have a real head turner that is also functional and the workmanship is amazing.

    Its not all about looks though, and I have since taken Moby II on a 4×4 training course to put it through its paces. There was not one noise or rattle and Moby II made it through still very much intact.

    I could go on raving all day about how happy I am with the end result. I can’t recommend Southern Spirit Campervans enough!

    Thanks Pia and Oli. I am one very happy camper!

    Olli & Pia converted a 2010 Toyota Hiace from an open shell commercial vehicle to a very comfortable and practical Campervan. We love it and the good quality workmanship. We use it every weekend and it has not let us down. We had some basic ideas for the layout and features and Olli & Pia were able to reproduce our ideas with some great enhancements from their many years of experience. We are very happy with Southern Spirit Campervans.

    Hi, Im the proud owner of the Hiace in the photos that Olli and Pia at Southern Spirit Campervans created for me.
    After loads of research into buying a campervan I decided it was more economical to buy a plain van and have a conversion. Thanks to the team at Southern Spirit my rough sketch of what I wanted became a reality, with the fit out better than I could ever have imagined.
    The design is very neat, in top grade materials and the workmanship first rate. Im 100% happy with my campervan and the care and effort the Southern Spirit team put in to turn a plain Hiace van into an amazing home on wheels.
    Happy Travels
