An East Lothian-based campervan converter has racked up over a million hits on YouTube for its informative videos.

Not only does Jerba Campervans convert many VW vans into leisure vehicles for its customers every year, it also helps others carry out works themselves.

The 14-strong team uploads tutorials to YouTube, sharing tips, tricks, product reviews and workshop videos to its 5,000 subscribers across the world.

More than 56,000 hours of content has been watched on Jerba’s channel, with viewers as far away from its North Berwick base as Thailand and Mexico.

Domhnall Dodds has had three campervans from Jerba and is a regular viewer of the employee-owned company’s YouTube content.

He said: “When deciding what features we wanted for our second van, the YouTube channel came in really handy. We were thinking about getting a diesel hob, which we hadn’t had before so it was great to be able to refer to the videos to see how it worked ahead of buying.”

“The personal rapport Jerba has with its customers has, in my experience, always been second to none, and the YouTube channel, with its informative and helpful videos is an extension of that service.”

Founded in 2005, Jerba is a specialist at converting VW Transporter T6.1 models and has been officially recognised as such by Volkswagen.

All of its conversions feature a unique pop-up roof, which the Scottish company gained a patent for in 2015.

Anyone keen to try a Jerba conversion can hire one directly from the business, with bookings now live for dates from March 1st.

Hires begin and end on a Friday and are charged at £950 per week. North Berwick is located in the south of Scotland and represents a convenient place from which to explore the rest of the country.
