TV star Annabel Croft's luxury van conversion


Whilst many of us attempted new challenges during the unusual Covid years of 2020 and 2021, former tennis champion turned TV sports pundit, Annabel Croft, joined the ranks of the intrepid tourer and began to convert a former parcel delivery van into a mobile home dream machine.

No stranger to adventure having hosted TV’s Treasure Hunt and Interceptor, Annabel and her husband loved the idea of getting away from it all and having a mid-life exploration around Britain, they set to work on creating ‘Vannabel’, their aptly named van-conversion.

As well as a full-kitchen, 'Vannabel' boasts a shower, toilet, dining table and even a storage for bikes and Annabel’s yoga mats so she can practice her sun salutations out in the Great Outdoors. To turn their Sprinter van into a luxury Campervan, the pair included all the mod-cons, like a TV and coffee maker, all powered by the solar panels affixed to the vans roof.

The Wimbledon presenter has been charting the highs and lows of the conversion and more recently, since they’ve set off around the country, keeping her social media followers up-to-date on their next off-grid adventure.
