Design Care Backpackers


Finally, we take the time to put that here! We had a great experience with Design Care Backpackers, and we have now been traveling with the van for 3 months.
We knew before arriving in NZ that we wanted to convert our van more than just buy one already made. The fact that we could buy the van AND have the help for converting it convinced us to choose to work with Esteban. And we don't regret it! It was so nice to have exactly what we wanted, where we wanted it, and Esteban had some good advice and ideas for us. It was also great to have the possibility to spend time by ourselves in the workshop so we could build more things. We had fun building our home! Thank you Esteban for all the help. Cheers!
The amazing Estoban working on my Mazda MPV conversion, managed to get it self contained for two.
Thanks Helen and Estoban, really enjoyed meeting you and had a great time helping out with my conversion. Super happy with the results and looking forward to starting my travels!
