Where it all started…

Danbury is still going strong since being established in 1964 – which makes us one of the longest running VW conversion companies out there. The company has seen big changes over the past 60 years but at its essence it still retains its core aim of building exceptional quality campervans at competitive prices. Although now based in Bridgwater, Somerset, it all began in the small town of Danbury in Essex.

From humble beginings…

Its founders started out converting and customising VW Beetle cars (the T1), before branching out to the T2, which more closely resembled the look of the vans we have today.

The T2, which became synonymous with the hippie movement, enjoyed huge success and although production ceased in Europe in 1979, Danbury saw there was still a huge demand for these classic campers and imported them from Brazil. The Transporter continued to be updated over the years to the T3, T4 and so on, with Danbury constantly evolving to keep up with the changing times and needs of its customers.

Danbury went from being a small family run venture to becoming a fully fledged modern business with a factory just outside Bristol. It branched out to converting Ford Transit Custom and Fiat Ducato chassis into campervans and in 2017 it was bought by French firm Pilote Group.

In 2020, Danbury was taken over by Vanworx Group, and the company has now gone full circle; run as a family business and returned to its VW roots. Danbury launched its all-new Fiat Ducato conversion – the Danbury Royale – at the beginning of 2024.
