Daisy The Split Screen Camper Van Electric Conversion

Part 2: Suspension and Off-Grid Camping

Off-Grid Electric Camping in classic style

Are you a fan of classic camper vans but also passionate about sustainable travel and modern technologies? If so, you'll be excited to learn about the latest project by eDub Conversions - the electric conversion of a VW Split Ccreen Camper named Daisy. In this blog article, we will delve into the details of this innovative conversion and explore the exciting features that eDub Conversions has incorporated into this iconic vehicle.

Initial Touch of Classic Beauty

Daisy arrived at our headquarters in North Yorkshire, UK, having already undergone a significant restoration, including a new front suspension, a fresh paint job, and beautiful new interiors. However, the original petrol-powered engine proved to be unreliable, prompting the owners to seek a more dependable and enjoyable driving experience. This is where eDub Conversions stepped in, aiming to enhance Daisy's performance with our electric propulsion system.

eDub Battery Pack and Custom Features

The conversion of Daisy involves the installation of electric propulsion, a 62 kWh battery pack, and custom features such as heating, air conditioning, and a digital throttle pedal. This not only enhances the vehicle's performance but also aligns with the owner's desire for a more reliable and eco-friendly driving experience.

One of the standout features of the conversion is the addition of a green number plate, signifying Daisy's status as an electric propulsion vehicle. This not only serves as a visual identifier but also plays a crucial role in safety, particularly in emergency situations. The green number plate acts as an immediate signal to emergency services, ensuring that Daisy is recognised as a unique vehicle with specific power requirements.

Off-Grid Camping Setup

Furthermore, eDub Conversions has equipped Daisy with an off-grid camping setup, powered by a 400-volt battery and an inverter system that can convert it from 400 volts DC into 240 volts AC power. This allows for the operation of traditional household power appliances, making Daisy a fully off-grid camping experience.

In addition to the electric conversion, eDub Conversions has also implemented an independent rear suspension (IRS) system, enhancing the vehicle's driving dynamics and overall performance. The IRS upgrade not only improves the driving experience but also aligns with eDub Conversions' commitment to creating a reliable and enjoyable driving experience for classic vehicle enthusiasts.

We are excited to share the progress of our VW Split Screen Electric Conversion and look forward to unveiling future updates. Stay tuned for more exciting projects from eDub Conversions as we continue to lead the way in the electrification of classic vehicles.
