Our Toyota Alphard conversion is based on a hand-picked Japanese import people carrier from 2002 to 2008 and is slightly smaller than a VW Transporter in size making it ideal for use as a daily driver.

Various models are available, including low-emission zone friendly 160PS 2.4-litre petrol and 220PS 3.0-litre V6 engines and they can be sourced with either four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive. All models have a quiet car-like drive and come with smooth-shifting automatic gearboxes and luxurious specifications. Typical features include powerful air-conditioning, electric windows and mirrors, parking sensors and all manner of electric gadgets (extras subject to models)

Our standard conversion includes a UK-made elevating roof (with a roof boards optional) or a high top version is also available. As well as a passenger swivel seat and a rear travel seats and a useful flip-up rear bed section that allows taller items to be stored in the boot.

The side conversion uses a neat curved section at the front edge with a tambour door revealing ample storage. A two-burner glass-topped hob and sink unit sits flush in the worktop near the top-loading compressor fridge. Full 12V and 240V electrics are fitted as standard and linked to a leisure battery, while LED lighting is used throughout. On board fresh and waste water tanks are also specified. A 2kw blown air heating system and solar panel is included. Prices start from a remarkable £18,000 with a brand-new conversion.
