Are campervans a good investment?

You may be surprised to find out that camper vans are one of the slowest depreciating modern vehicles, even when bought from new, with the Volkswagen California holding its value better than its competition.

Is it cheaper to buy a campervan or convert one?

It depends on how much you’re planning to convert it is the simple answer. If what you’re looking for in a camper is already configured and available, it’s going to be cheaper to buy the one that’s already been done, but if what you want is completely custom you’ll need to involve a conversion company anyway.
