That's why we came up with out full electrical camper conversion kits. We've taken care of all of the boring bits, allowing you to get on with the exciting part of installing the wiring and finishing your van.

Next to some of the description below, you will see links to articles on how to help choose which item you will need. Also at the bottom are some additional resources.
A complete, expandable tailor made electrical conversion kit for your camper van. This system covers the solar charging side of things. In the "Add-ons" selection above, there is an optional plug in for the mains, off grid inverters and 12V wiring kits. Check out the how-to guide to decide what you might need.
Within this kit you will receive:
- 1 x Solar panel, either 115W, 175W or 215W rigid panels or a 150W flexible panel.
- Solar cabling kit (4mm cables) cut to length.
- Cable entry gland in white or black.
- panel mount kit, available in white or black, either 4 piece for 115W or 6 piece for 175W and 215W. (mount kits not supplied with flexible panels.
- 1 x pair of MC4 connectors.
- Solar charge controller (unless you have a CTEK battery to battery charger and a compatible panel). Charge controllers are paired to the panel, see details below.
Each kit is custom made to suit your individual conversion how we normally do this is by one of our layout forms (available in the attachments tab above). We have a blank one which you can fill out with your needs or we have some sample ones for more popular layouts. Either download the blank one fill it out and attach it to your order, or indicate the code for your sample layout. If you're unsure on what you need or where you'd like it to go. One of our team can give you a call, offer advise and run through the layout on the phone. Please note: if you're purchasing this with our core 12V electrical wiring kit (Item 1001) then one layout is fine across all of the full electrical camper conversion products).
Please be sure to leave an email address and a contact number when ordering in case we need to discuss your layout with you.
Cable routings. As we design the wiring looms, these looms will have ample cable to reach each components, allowing for sensible routing, we do take the shortest practical route, which we usually define as around the perimeter of the van at floor level and then up to components, with the exception of light looms which run up into the roof from the switch and then around the roof. If you have a specific cable routing in mind, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate this.
We won't plan to run cables under the floor, as we know this is often the first part you will do in the camper and don't want to be held up waiting for wiring to go under the floor.
With this kit, we aim to supply all of the hardware you will need for the solar panel installation, what isn't supplied that you will need would be a sealant to stick down the cable entry gland (such as Sikaflex) and any mechanical fixings, nuts' bolts, rivets etc for fixing the mounting kits to your roof.
An efficient, green and durable way to charge your batteries all day, especially when off grid.

Flexible solar panel
These panels are made from a thin flexible sheet, (only 3mm thick) so you can have a nice low profile panel which looks great on lower vehicles where the roof is closer to eye height. The panels are designed to be stuck down using a Sikaflex or similar adhesive (not supplied).
150W flexible solar panel. Dimensions 1460mm x 540mm x 3mm. Weight:3.2Kg Open circuit voltage 30.1V meaning this panel can only be used with Victron smartsolar and BlueSolar MPPT controllers, not the CTEK or PWM controllers.
Compatible solar charge controllers: Victron BlueSolar 75/15, Victron SmartSolar 75/15.
Solar charge controllers
Most of our solar panels have a choice of 3 or 4 controllers depending on your budget and requirements. See our how to choose your solar charge controller to see what type you need.
When you select, PWM, Victron BlueSolar or Victron SmartSolar above, we will provide you with the correct size controller for the panel you have selected.
Mounting kits and glands
Made from an ABS plastic and available in either white or black. These mount kits fit snugly to the frame of the rigid solar panels, and can be screwed, glued or both to the panel and the roof. They raise the panel slightly to allow the air to flow under the panel cooling it for maximum efficiency.
We provide a 4 piece mount kit for the 115W panel and a 6 piece for the 175W and 215W.
The cable entry gland provides two waterproof cable glands and a box to sit over the hole you cut for your wires to come through the roof. This should be bonded down.
