The S+S Conversion

The S+S Conversion

The False Floor, when coupled with our Drop-down Carbon Bunk is where the S+S journey started five years ago. Five years later, the concept hasn't changed. Refinement hasn't stopped either. The 2022 versions of our Stitches + Steel Conversion bring exciting new advancements and developments from half a decade of use.

The S+S System is a concept that came from a harsh reality. The reality; that less than 1% of time is truly spent camping in these modern workhorses with the remaining 99% of the time as a daily driver. Why the heavy emphasis on cooking, luxury and excess?

As these Vehicles have progressed and evolved the way we're using them has too. They aren't Campervans anymore, they're contemporary spaces that move, they can move very well now too. They move so well that we're ditching our cars for these one-vehicle solutions.

A light van is a good van. It’s an entirely different experience to driving a fully laden one. With weight saving high on the agenda, we set about sourcing materials more often associated with the ocean and sailing. Where strength, weight saving, longevity and smart storage are essential. Built to withstand whatever you can throw at them, from sustainable materials perfectly suited to life on the road.

We interrogated the best sail loft in the world. We borrowed, modified-for-purpose and built the same tried and tested systems that are associated with getting somewhere fast, on terrain that moved. If it excelled on a boat, it was fit for our purposes on the road.

The full S+S Conversion is made up of three main components, all with a heavy focus on lightweight functionality. Our Van Lining Kits, Carbon Fibre Drop Down Bunk and False Floor Modules can be fitted in any combination, to any variant of Volkswagen Transporter.

False Floor Modules

We digitised the spaces of all variants of Transporter, then nested the elaborate network of shapes that make up the false floors. The outcome is a modular, multifunctional unit that looks like it should have been there all along. S+S utilises OEM fastenings and apertures in the chassis preventing permanent alterations to your van, and allowing swift and easy removal should the need arise. Following the form of the OEM contours of the vehicle maximises the useful space, using it in the right way to assure a light weight, bright and airy feel. Infinite stowage systems equal less rattles, more storage and more fun behind the wheel.


All of our False Floor Modules are multifunctional, versatile and specable to suit your needs, whether that be hauling bikes, heavy work gear or everything you need for a weekend escape.

Van Lining Kits

Our Lining Kits replace the dark OEM cardboard panels with our bright and durable alternatives. They are made from recyclable plastic with a bubble core that means that they are easy to keep clean and lightweight but, crucially, what we like to call ‘handlebar proof’. With enough room behind for our 100% recycled slimline insulation, they fit to your van in the standard panel holes with the included S+S push clips. No need to go crazy with the self-tappers.


Not comfortable with wasting any space in the van, the panels incorporate our signature plus logo to create a handy storage solution for the things you need the most. Toothbrush, phone charger, pants... All within easy reach. The full kit includes our Store Door, using up more of the unused space in the sliding door cavity.

Carbon Fibre Bunk

The biggest bed in the industry. Lightest too. The Drop-Down Carbon Bunk is the ultimate, less-is-more campervan solution. The Traditional Pop top adds too much weight, too much compromise. Our solution does away with the invasive surgery, and the excess culminating in a product that's 20x lighter, discrete and a whole lot less.


More boat than van, the Drop-Down Bunk combines the best pulleys and rigging in the industry with lightweight carbon fibre and stainless steel components to create a unique solution to sleeping in your van. The Drop-Down Bunk is a standard double bed, making it one of the best nights of sleep you’ll ever have in a van. It is practically hidden when you don’t need it, taking a matter of seconds to pull up into the roof.
