Here’s some of the testimonials we’ve received.
If you’d like to send pictures of your Drifta we can put them up too.
Our van arrived back in Queensland a couple of days ago, and we just wanted to tell you how happy we are with the work you guys have done on it. All the fittings and cupboards are strong and professionally finished, and exactly what we wanted.
Many thanks to you for all the good advice and ideas you gave us, and also big thanks to those who did all the great work.
We can’t wait to get away in it once we get the hang of everything.
The whole experience of dealing with the Drifta team has been brilliant!
Sue and Paul
Well, we received our Hiace back into Brisbane 2 weeks ago.
We have managed to squeeze in a 5 day shake down/familiarization getaway and are pleased to report everything worked really well. The draw systems are really spacious and we are able to fit everything in with room to spare. We especially love the custom wall storage unit you made. The 12v electrics worked very well and the install was neat and professional. We love the 125ah lithium battery it was definitely a smart decision and a big step up from previous AGM batteries we have used.
Just for your info, we have purchased insect screens & sun shields from Top Gear 2 Go, we noticed that you were using their insect screens in your hire van last year. Their service & products are also very good.
Please pass onto all your staff involved in our fit out, how happy we are with the end result.
Kevin & Judy
MARK: Many thanks for the feedback – glad its all as you need. Yes Doug makes a good product with the insect screens…I send a few customers his way.
If you have a couple of photo’s of your van in use that would be good – I’ll add this to our testimonials page.
We hope that everyone is safe and well down your way????As promised, here are a few photos from our 2nd shakedown trip. Tin Can Bay this time, we are so fortunate here in Qld.
No problems at all with the Drifta setup, it’s just so easy to tour and camp now, I can’t go back to the tent????, just too spoilt now.
Once again, thankyou to you and your skilled team.
Kevin & Judy
Just a quick note to thank you and the team for a job well done under trying circumstances!
We have loaded up the van and everything fits perfectly. although bluesfest was cancelled, we spent a couple of days in the van and it’s very comfortable. all works as expected, and the quality of the build is outstanding. so pleased with everything, we will definitely recommend a Drifta build to anyone. thanks again,
We wanted to say thank you for all the help you gave us whilst planning to fit out our VW Transporter as a camper. Your expertise in the field and wise suggestions put into action have provided us with an excellent camper, well designed with plenty of storage. We are so happy with it.
We have enjoyed camping in it. It works so well for a small camper. COVID certainly stopped us for a while, but the few weekends away since restriction have eased have been fantastic.
The photos were taken whilst at Copeland Dam near Inverell.
It has been a pleasure to work with you. You were always contactable during all phases of planning and fitout and there to help with any queries.
Geoff & Cheryl
The fit out is first class (you knew that,didn’t you?) and is attracting favourable comments from all who see it. Mick did a good and thorough handover. We met Jimmy and Benny at the retail store.Drifta should keep and clone Benny, he’s a natural salesman and Jimmy’s work on the fit out is impeccable.
The van now wears “DRIFTA EQUIPD” and “RESPECT THE BUSH” stickers and I’m wearing a DRIFTA cap. I guess we’re both converted!
Thank you Mark, thank you Drifta.
Geoff and Chris.
Hi Mark, John and the Drifta team,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for converting my Ford transit van into a camper. I meant to thank you earlier but I’ve been enjoying it too much.
I really appreciated your professional service and Mark you listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered. I am very impressed and all my expectations have been surpassed.
The end result is a sturdy, functional and beautiful van fit out. Great job!
I just wanted to send you a few pictures of our finished project. Really love the outcome and would like to say thank you for a neat and stylish finish. Now we can carry two sea kayaks on the roof and two bikes in the cab! When the bikes aren’t in that cavity is excellent for storage.
To all staff at Drifta
From start to finish it has been a pleasurable experience to deal with Drifta and I am stoked with the fit out on my Hyundai iload.
Mark just wanted to say thank you
Draws arrived today . Great service and product mate . It’s been a pleasure dealing with you and the team
I Will be back to do the other side of the wagon
Cheers Mark. Thanks again for the fit out! Best thing I ever did. !
Mark, just a quick note to say thanks for the drawers. Arrived last month and I have now had the time to fit them. They look great and fit the Vw Caddy prefectly.
Thanks to all the drifta team.
Ken and Donelda
Amanda and I just wanted to say thanks so much for the work you and the team did on our Toyota Hiace Commuter.
We are just so happy with everything and want to leave a review for Drifta and the team.
Do you know where we should post our review? I’ll paste it below so you can have a read too.
We are so glad we found the guys at Drifta Gloucester.
Bit of a drive from Sydney (about 4.5 hours) but well worth it.
We liked that the price was completely itemised with optional upgrades and extras, plus all the videos showing how functional it all it is.
From the beginning we were really impressed, Mark took in our crude drawings and listened to what we wanted and wasn’t afraid to make suggestions to improve our ideas.
We got the drifta slide system for our kitchen to make it self supporting on Mark’s recommendation and we are so glad we did!
In fact all of their recommendations were spot on.
They also did all the wiring, fitting of solar panels, installation of battery. They really made it so easy for us.
We have just done a couple of weeks in our van and are super comfortable and more confident embarking on our trip around Australia.
All of the cabinetry is of such good quality and the drawers really do slide so easily.
The kitchen is really impressive, we get a lot of comments from people as they walk by.
These guys really know their stuff and were friendly, genuine and professional throughout.
Josh and Amanda
Toyota Hiace Commuter.
Just want to pass on my thanks to Mark, Cameron and the rest team for what is just a product and making me feel so welcome through the fit put process. I couldn’t be happier.
Our drawers arrived in Brendale and fitted perfectly, I think the boys at Brendale thought they wouldn’t fit in a Volkswagen caddy but they fit with a few millimetres to spare!
Everything moves perfectly we will be off on a trip soon will send you a few photos. Your drawer set turns a car into a camper perfectly.
Drifta service and products couldn’t be better.
Thanks Ray and Lyn.
Hi Mark, we hope you enjoyed your little break during our van alterations? We are now in Darwin and after travelling some 26 days since and through all sorts of heat, bugs, flies etc, we can now say, what an excellent job you and the boys have done! We now have ample drawer and cupboard space along with the tunnel.
We would also like to say thanks for referring us to Doug, at “Top Gear 2 Go”, those curtains are the ducks guts and have kept all manner of beasties out. The referrals between you both needs to keep going for both of you?
We cannot thank you enough either for slotting us into your busy schedule when we heard how busy you all were and you have now made our trip a memorable one which we will both treasure.
Thank you Mark.
Kevin and Carmel (WA)
Subject: Cheers to Drifta
Been meaning to let you guys know just how happy we are with our VW Transporter fit-out. From the moment we saw it we were over the moon – the workmanship, design, finish and customer service is second to none. The height of the bed has given us deeper drawers which means there is nothing cluttering up the inside of the van with ample storage space. The kitchen is awesome, so we’ll thought out. The battery set up is perfect and the insulated side walls are great. We enjoyed the whole experience with Drifta and continue to promote the company every chance we get.
Thanks again for everything.
Love your work
Chris and Neil
I thought you might like to know that Narelle and I are really enjoying the use of Amy (Ducato fitout) on our travels. Whilst long trips are not allowed for the moment we have been as far north as Kyogle and south as far as Batemans Bay and have probably been away for at least a week each mth since we picked her up.
Everything is working well with both Relle and Amy. Here are a couple of pictures of the two of them together.
Thx again for helping us get out and about.
I just wanted to say that the work Drifta did for us on 10 May installing drawers was excellent. Please convey to all concerned a job well done. I would rate it 5 out of 5. I will recommend Drifta to all interested. You were efficient, timely, organized, customer friendly and effective.
Cheers, Tony and Pat
Some feedback from Matt from Kakadu campers in the US/Canada – Matt imports all our drawer systems and can get whatever fit out you need for any vehicle, 4wd or van. The self built camper vans in the US/Canada seem to be taking off lately…anyone over there that’s interested in fitting out a van should get in contact with Matt as he’s able to get you sorted. Thanks Matt… regards, Beechy.
We installed that VW Synchro system this week. A couple of pics attached. The lady was super stoked. She’s gonna send me some better pics next week from the road. These were late night photos taken at 2am when we finally finished it up (she arrrived at 5pm- long story). Everything fit almost perfectly as if the van was in Gloucester for measure up . I was very relieved. Thanks for your guys and girls hard work. Matt B.
We have been busy christening the fitout. Well at least me… Relle is strictly on the wagon.
Many thx to Drifta team (especially Mark) for the patience and great workmanship.
We are STOKED (showing my age and number of beers) with the outcome. You are all a pleasure to deal with.
Thx, Greg and Narelle
Thought I’d send a quick message to say the Drifta fit out is working great 2 years of full time farrier use lugging shoes and tools, here it is today. Thanks again for the personalised work!
Erin the farrier!
Just wanted to let you know that all seems to be working with the Dash Cam, it puts itself straight into parking mode now when I turn off the ignition.
So THANK YOU! I am so impressed with the finish of the van, it is truly awesome. And thanks for the follow up as well.
The missus approves! She loves the bench you guys made for her too. I had to do some reshuffling, but I was still able to fit everything in even with the lost space where the new battery and inverter are.
I’m going to see how the van goes down in tassie for 3 weeks. I’ll be thinking of any last possible upgrades before I start work on the wheels and suspension…
The aim is to have the Van perfect for a trip around Australia in 2020
Anyway, super happy with your work as always, thanks very much for working with me on this project over the last two years!
Good morning Beechie,
Picking up my van on Saturday went with out a hitch.
On my walk from the station, I saw a Drifta van …looking for me no doubt. Luke’s Dad offering country hospitality…. can’t have these city folk walking. So pass on my thanks.
The fit out looks fantastic. The finish is brilliant. You and the team did a great job. I can’t wait to give it a run through on the long weekend.
I love the concept/ design of the bed add-on as this works for me especially removing it when not in use. The middle spacing really works well.
Thank you again.
Hey Mark thanks heaps for the draws bud they look and work awesome. Great job buddy
Thanks Julie picked up my draws from brendale on friday and installed them today, absolutely love them can’t believe how well they fit. Please pass on my thanks to all involved.
Just a short note to advise you of our complete satisfaction with the job done by “Beechy” and his crew. We have just arrived home from a 3,500 trip and the fit-out was fantastic. The bed situation and draws were excellent and the storage boxes under the bed were so efficient in respect to whatever we required to store. The fridge worked a treat.
Everywhere we went, when people commented how great our fit-out was, we told them Drifta from Gloucester did it, so hopefully you will be getting lots of orders.
Thanks again for everything – it worked a treat.
Best wishes to all
Kevin and Rhonda
Hi Brad, Mark, Julie & Jason
Just wanted to say a big thank you for our van fit-out on Tuesday.
I’m thrilled with the job you’ve done – definitely worth the wait!
My family and friends can’t believe the ingenuity of the design and the quality of the build.
I can’t wait to hit the road and put it to good use.
I really love what you guys are doing and you can be sure I’ll be singing the praises of Drifta up and down the east coast.
Just letting you know my order 29203 arrived on Monday. I am currently fitting them they look great. Pass on my thanks to Beechy and his team.
Thank you for sending through the link.
(See video of van fit out here…. https://youtu.be/7Tu3K1rhYcw )
Ryan and I would like to personally extend our compliments to everyone at Drifta and especially yourself for the quality van fit out and the entire process. We are beyond thrilled with our new home.
Thanks for that, I’m really really happy with the product and service you guys have a great team of people up there and I’ll be highly recommending your products to others.
The draws are fantastic. Couldn’t be happier with the end result.
Just wanted to let you know that it was a pleasure dealing with Drifta. Everyone was nothing but friendly and professional.
Hi Drifta crew,
I just wanted to drop a quick message to express how happy I am with my van fitout. It is totally awesome! I’m sure it will serve me well and enable endless adventures. I dreamed of the perfect camper van and you guys made it a reality! I’m very impressed with the operation you guys run and the quality of the product you produce. I know my van was a bit difficult to work with but you were all over it.
Thank you so much,
Just letting you know that we couldn’t be happier with the conversion you guys did. We’ve had a few trips away and everything has been perfect!
The draws are better than I expected (Awesome). Please pass on our thanks to everyone that was involved in the ordering and installation.
The service was outstanding and the Drawers are awesome….
Ken and Kerri
My drawer system was delivered last Wednesday the 21st. I installed them on the weekend. Please pass on my thanks to all those involved in the build of the drawer system. I could not be happier. They fitted like a glove with zero issues and look fantastic. Even my wife who was sceptical about me buying them is HAPPY.
Order completed and could not be happier. Nathan was terrific and did the job very well, even though he started the day with bits that were not ready. He handled it superbly.
Julie in the office was terrific as well and I appreciated her moving me up the “food chain” so that I could get my fitout earlier than expected, which helps me with the forthcoming trip. John Sutton .. what a legend .. drove us into town, provided us with some water and a factory tour and generally chatted and looked after us while we awaited completion of the fitout.
And the many Drifta workers we met during the day.. all lovely people.
You have a good team there. My thanks to them all.
We had a terrific day at Drifta in Gloucester and could not recommend the product or the people highly enough.
John and Julie
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you guys and the team at drifta.
We had our first weekend away after having our van fitted last Monday, we had waited a while but so happy the wait was worth it.
Had an awesome time with Greg cooking up a storm with his new kitchen setup!
Have to say if we had a dollar for every time we had comments about our “great setup” and people asking where we had it done? how much ? we could be rich!
Just wanted to say thanks we are very happy and yes we pass on all your details so guess you will need another shed soon!!
Below is a pic of the happiest chef around!!
All the best Jane and Greg
Hi everyone at Drifta – thought I’d attach a photo of our new set – up in a Mercedes Valente.
We have used it this week, and it was wonderful!
Thanks again for making such a great product!
Just a quick one… order arrived yesterday, all in good order!
Thanks for shipping on time – appreciated.
Just doing the fit out at present.
Quality, service and communication – excellent.
Thanks again – Have a great Christmas and New Year.
Your company is very efficient, Information is fantastic, ideas inventive.
This order was successfully delivered yesterday
Having “watched” the expansion of Drifta from back when I first purchased a 4WD Action Magazine and saw a small little advert, to the size you are now, it was an absolute pleasure to support Australian Manufacturing.
Please pass on my thanks to Luke, Beechy and the Team for the excellent product, and probably the World’s Best Packing Skills I have ever seen!
Thanks Julie, Mark,
it was a smooth process getting this organised and done with Drifta and we are very happy with the fitout. Thanks to all who were involved.
Tim and Alison
I just want to say en enormous thank you to you and your team for the work you did on my van system. I came to you with a few rough ideas and you helped me work out exactly what I wanted, then built it perfectly. Everything was so easy from the first point of contact to the final steps.
My system has been specifically designed as the foundation to my camper conversion. Everything was reasonably priced, and the finish was exceptional. The drawers all slide so easy, and the pop-up storage fits nice and snug.
I’m happy to answer any questions anyone might have about this system and will send more photos as the rest of the build continues.
Well done mate.
Good Morning Mark,
I just wanted to let you know that my drawers have arrived. I wanted to quickly forward this email to yourself to say how impressed I was with all my dealings with Drifta.
From my initial emails to yourself, your friendly assistance with customising dimensions, all the way to the product quality and ease of installation. My experience has been excellent.
Unfortunately there are few Australian businesses like yourself that offer such customised, personal and professional service and deliver the products to match.
Again, I appreciate your time and the drawers you have built and I will definitely be passing on the Drifta name for recommendations as well as returning myself as a future customer.
Keep up the awesome work.
Thank you very much Julie and thank all the guys at Drifta for me! I love the drawers and your bags, everything is top quality and worth every cent I will slap on your sticker on my car as soon as this weather blows over!
Can’t say thank you enough,
Hi Mark, Thanks for the bits. Ideal. You and Drifta are a great lot of people. What a pity that there are not a lot more people like you all. The World would be a much better place….
Thank you for the invoice.. Dad and I just got back to the centre coast.
I was going to start heading down to Tassie tomorrow ?
Can you let the boys know I love what they have done to my van.
We’ve now had our first trip away in the van with the new Drifta setup and couldn’t be more delighted. I was apprehensive before it’s arrival as my husband is a real do it himself kind of guy and took some arm twisting to agree to ordering the unit from you…. It had to be good! And it seriously is. It arrived so well packed. And the unit itself is so well designed and constructed. He was pleased to be able to make the finishing touches in terms of the wing kit and said that your instructions and handy hints were clear and concise.
The whole experience has been so positive. We really enjoyed our first trip away and can’t wait to use it again. Congratulations to you and Luke and the team on a superb product and excellent customer service. It has been a pleasure doing business with you all.
Kate and Matt
Mark, just wanted to say thank you for building and installing the Drifta draw & kitchen. I’m very impressed with the end result and was awesome to see the site yesterday.
All the best,
Hi Mark and Luke
Just letting you know myself and my wife are extremely happy with the Toyota Hi Ace van fit out you did for us on Friday 17th May. Everything works great and it has been a pleasure dealing with Drifta, as work was done as promised. All staff that I dealt with were great making the whole fit out so easy. Thanks for a top job.
John and Jenny Elcoate
Hi Mark, the van set up is great, (sprinter) thanks for the good work and getting it done so efficiently, I was able to get to Byron the same day. The kitchen is great and the slide out drawers are a breeze. We had crappy camping weather but without the set up it would have been awful camping. As it was all the gear worked really well and we could pack up and get everything back in under cover quickly and get going if it threatened to rain.
I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how happy I am with the van. I spent a week living in it over at Crescent Head and was the best time I’ve had in a long time. There were lots of other van dwellers around and they were all pretty impressed with the job you had done.
Some pictures of the fitted out van for Mark and Luke.
They don’t look as I had hoped – but at the moment it’s either bright sunlight – or too dark.
If there is anything else in particular they would like just let me know and I’ll make an attempt.
I hope to have them posted with my feedback on the www.vwwatercooled.com.au forum I use, over the weekend.
Please pass on my thanks again to all including Andrew.
I am very happy with the quality result and glad I made the trip.
Regards – Steve
Had a chance to try out the new drawer at Seal Rocks last weekend- worked a treat and the table is so easy to set up. We are happy with it. Just to the right of the drawer is our little plastic foldup box we put in there for shoes – comes in handy when it’s wet.
Might catch up one day for a run when you are over.
Just a quick line to say thanks for building the kitchen (Drifta Van Back ) for my kombi. Attached are some photos from Seal Rocks and Jervis Bay.
It has made camp cooking a pleasure and received many admiring comments.
All the best for continuing success in your business.
This has been long coming. Unfortunately work got really busy so I did not have time to fit the drawers properly. Only over last couple of weeks have I done the proper fit for the drawers. They are mounted on the existing VW rail system, no holes had to be drilled in the van. It has come up very nicely!
The seat ‘folds over’ really well to make a double bed. I have put some photo’s up on the VW forum as well. Next week we will be it’s first trip. We are heading ‘your’ way, a two week road trip to Wollemi and other places, fitting as much mountain biking in as possible..
Thanks again, Rients

Drifta Camping Kitchens (Gloucester NSW)
Well I finally did it. Made the trip from Melbourne to Gloucester NSW to get my van fitted out by Drifta Camping Kitchens and it was worth every kilometre of the 2,500km round trip.
My fit-out is for business purposes and quite specific.
Have a fold up table over my existing rear seat, side shelving unit, rear drawer/table/hatch unit, bed base boards, and all side panels/ceiling insulated and lined.
They worked with me over the phone and by email to get the basic design done and quoted.
Because of my specific requirements they had to see the van to do the work – so I stayed for 2-1/2 days and got the lot done – there was a nice motel across the road which was also very convenient.
Beautiful place Gloucester – and must be the most pleasant industrial estate you could ever hope to work in.
Nothing but courteous staff, who took pride in their work.
High quality workmanship and finish.
So for someone like me who can’t do that work myself – certainly nothing like the professional finish from Drifta – and hasn’t got the time anyway – it was perfect – very good value for money I felt too – and supporting Australian jobs.
Some photo’s attached.
And happy to provide any more specific details anyone might want.
Certainly put to shame the 2 businesses I tried to deal with down here – that were less than 10km from home! Even if they didn’t want to do one off’s, why couldn’t they just tell you that up front, instead of wasting your time as well.
