When the guys at Supertramped Co. are given the design brief “earthy and organic” you just know they’re going to design something out of this world. And they did not disappoint with Rumi.
Every inch of this campervan – from the rustic wood counters to the vine-covered skylight and vintage wall lamps – looks like it belongs in Middle Earth. And the incredibly intricate tree mural painted on the outside would blend right into the Forest of Fangorn. Before even stepping inside the van, the forest design and tree of life mural on the exterior of the van makes this conversion unique. As well as the amazing stained-glass door that looks like it belongs in an old-world church rather than on a campervan.
Stepping inside the van doesn’t disappoint either. Ashley and the crew behind Supertramped Co. are known for their attention to detail, which is clear inside this van. The rope curtain ties, vintage tiles, and touches of rustic brass throughout add to the fantasy world you feel like you’re stepping into when you board the van.
However, don’t let the rustic charm fool you, this van conversion comes with all the modern amenities you could need for a road trip to the Shire. The fitted kitchen has a farm-style sink, brass tap, 3-ring hob plus an oven, grill, and a built-in fridge freezer. And, of course, the Hobbit stove (what else?) ties in beautifully with the van’s aesthetic. This deceptively large van also includes a pull-out double bed situated right under the metre wide Velux skylight. What could be more magical than laying in bed under the stars on a warm night? In the day, the bed folds away revealing a decent-sized dining table and seating for those much-needed snack breaks and cozy meals under the stars.
If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a full shower finished with green and white tiles. Not only does it tie in perfectly with the dreamy interior but it’s the perfect retreat after a long day of hiking in the hills. That is if you ever manage to pull yourself away from this cosy campervan long enough to go exploring. It’s impressive how much functionality has been added while keeping design at the heart of this conversion.
There’s enough hidden storage for long road trips, and the underslung water and gas tanks make it a balanced campervan and a smooth ride. And it’s not just the beautifully-designed interior that makes us envy this conversion. This van was built for adventures. With a 175w solar panel, LPG boiler, and Ring Inverter (and so many other well-planned hidden features), you can easily go off-grid for days in this van and explore the wilderness in style and comfort. Anyone else feel the need to ditch everything and run off to join the Fellowship?
So much hard work and creativity have gone into designing Rumi, and the proud new owners have got themselves a truly special mini home to go get lost in.
