The vast majority of owners have either bought their kombi new from Danbury who converted them for them, or bought second hand kombis that were already converted by Danbury.

I am not aware of any that have been converted retrospectively, and I'm not aware of anyone other than Danbury who offer a LHD to RHD conversion although it is of course technically possible and other companies will be able to do it.

Can I ask why you want to convert it ?
If your Kombi is LHD I would be inclined to keep it that way rather than go through the expense and hassle of having it converted.

Will it not depend upon where you will be doooing most of your driving.
If you see a lot of driving in Europe then LH may be better.
By contrast if you are going to stay in the UK then RH may be better.
You can obviously drive either in both locations and many people doo.

LH drive Kombis are normally a little cheaper to buy as the cost to convert to RH drive is £1,000.00 plus!

It might be worth phoning the likes of Danbury, VWkampers and Litesteer to name a few, and enquire as to how much it would be to convert.
As said I guess it comes down to where you will be driving the most etc.....

If you do get it converted remember your dashboard will still be a lefty. I added a grab handle on the left and use the original one as a sunglasses holder. Mine was a Danbury convert from new.
