The Dorchester is the ultimate Toyota Alphard conversion - elegant yet practical, chic but classic


The Alphard sits proudly within our highly acclaimed range of campervan conversions. Offering unbeatable luxury and convenience within its compact external dimensions, it is the ideal first choice for those downsizing from larger motorhomes. It is also aimed at those who simply want the best balance of attributes in a package that can be used as daily transport 365 days a year and also as a quick get away vehicle for a weekend break or touring holiday. This, along with our acclaimed Purbeck conversion, is the ultimate Toyota Alphard motorhome.


We have chosen for our Dorchester conversion the security of crash tested rock & roll seating complete with two 3 point seat belts and integral head rests which quickly and easily folds down to form a perfectly flat luxurious double bed. Neither comfort when lounging and sleeping nor safety and security on the road have to be compromised in the Dorchester.

As you would expect on any modern luxury vehicle, all Toyota Alphards are fitted with a host of safety features such as airbags, ABS braking systems, parking sensors and some even with lane assist systems.


The elegant high gloss units and practical worktops are complemented by the gleaming stainless steel hob and sink especially chosen for their practical size, something often overlooked in more compact campervans. The flush smoked-glass lids supplement the worktop, while a thoughtfully positioned ‘fridge enclosure and removable table extends even further the useable surface areas.

Kitchen facilities are completed by vinyl flooring, an on board 10L fresh water tank with electric pump, removable for easy filling, a sizeable 48 litre Waeco compressor refrigerator complete with full width 5 litre freezer compartment, and capacious cupboards with sleek tambour doors, making access possible even at night. A leisure battery provides on site power for the refrigerator, lights and other 12 volt accessories when there is no mains hook up. Both 12v and 240v power is managed by a control unit with LED display and, safety once again, an RCD and trips. The gas bottle is
accessed through the drivers side sliding door, allowing easy swap-overs - luxuries that would not disgrace a far larger campervan.


Front seats, swivelling on the passenger side, are re-upholstered to match perfectly the two-tone leather rock and roll rear double seat while further storage is to be found beneath and behind the rear seat. Two 3-point inertia seat belts mean rear passenger safety hasn’t been forgotten. 240V blown air heating keeps you snug and no fewer than six touch sensitive LED lights set the atmosphere for the evening once the sun has gone down.

Simply fold down the seat to form a perfectly flat double bed. Even with the bed end pullout extended there is room for a Porta-Potti - everything for a perfect nights sleep. Opt for the gas-assisted rising roof for extra headroom and children can be accommodated too. Optional tailor made silver window screens add privacy and security.
