How does the Simple camper van conversion module work?

Converting your Citroen Berlingo, Fiat Doblo, Peugeot Partner, Peugeot Rifter, Renault Kangoo or Vauxhall Combo Life into a functional camper van is faster than reading these instructions!

Supplied fully assembled & ready to use.

All Simple camper conversion modules are supplied fully assembled. No vehicle modifications or permanent fixings are required and installation takes less than 5 minutes. Simply lift the module out of the packaging and straight into the boot of your vehicle and you’re ready to go! For everyday use you can continue to use your Citroen Berlingo, Fiat Doblo, Peugeot Partner, Peugeot Rifter, Renault Kangoo or Vauxhall Combo Life with all the seats in place and the module neatly folded into the boot.

We recommend reading the full instructions here prior to using your module in order to ensure correct installation. When driving, the module must be folded and stored in the boot of the vehicle. If you have any questions just get in touch. We’re here to help!

Instructions.

Prior to installation of the module in your vehicle, you will need to spend a few minutes configuring the front and rear seats to maximise internal space to allow the module to unfold. Once you’ve completed the process a few times, you will be able to configure your vehicle in a matter of seconds!

Start by lifting the front head restraints up (2-3cm is enough) so that the struts are exposed. Next, slide the front seats as far forward as possible on the runners – if the seats are difficult to slide, sit on each seat in turn and use your body weight to loosen the slide mechanism by moving the seat backwards and forwards a few times. Finally, tilt the back rest on each front seat to a position just off vertical so that each seat leans towards the front of the vehicle, by using the circular winder (or lever) on the side of the seat. The front seats are now configured.

To configure the rear seats, just fold the back rests forward so that they rest on the seat base. For Citroen Berlingo, Fiat Doblo and Peugeot Partner vehicles only, lift the rear head restraints up – this lowers the position of the folded seat backs, allowing the module to sit flat when unfolded.

For Citroen Berlingo MK3, Peugeot Rifter, Renault Kangoo MK2 and Vauxhall Combo Life vehicles only, with the Magic Flat system, just fold the rear seats into the floor.

That’s it. You are now ready to install your module!

We recommend removing the table prior to installing the module into your vehicle. This lightens the module and avoids the table sliding out and sustaining damage during lifting. Please ensure that when the table is re-installed, the plastic stop on the underside of the table is pointing towards the front of the vehicle – this stops the table sliding underneath the hinge.

Carefully lift the module into the boot of your vehicle, noting the orientation as shown in the image here (the hinges should face towards the front of the vehicle). Ensure that the module is positioned near the boot entrance, rather than pushed forward into the vehicle.

Note: Citroen Berlingo Mk1 owners with the Modubox shopping trolley option fitted in the boot will need to remove the trolley and brackets prior to installing and using the camper conversion module. This procedure only takes a few minutes – call us if you need help.

Ensure the module is sitting horizontally central within the vehicle boot. Carefully unfold the module so that it rests on top of the folded rear seats, taking care not to catch the module panels on the rear seat brackets as it unfolds.

Unfold the module further and rest the support leg against the front head restraint struts. Ensure that each front seat is positioned in exactly the same position so that the module support leg is supported evenly across both front seats.

Lift up the table and insert the table leg into the conic connectors. The table can be rotated to gain access into the vehicle.

The angle of the module back rest can be adjusted by tilting the vehicle front seats further backwards or forwards using the winder mechanism or lever on the vehicle seat.

Fold the module flat by resting the support leg on the floor behind the front seats. You can create a completely flat sleeping platform by changing the angle of the support leg and/or sliding the module forwards or backwards slightly within the vehicle.

You may also need to remove any floor mats from behind the front seats. The height of the support leg has been carefully designed to provide a completely flat sleeping platform without floor mats or other items artificially increasing the height of the vehicle floor.

We recommend sleeping with your feet facing the front of the vehicle. This allows the module to better support your weight and also allows much easier entry and exit from the side doors of the vehicle. Additionally, taller users can stretch out by placing their feet between the front seats of the vehicle when lying down.

You’re done. Go and have some fun.
