321 Away Ltd - the Montague Mazda
Mazda stopped making the Bongo in 2005, but these vehicles are so tough that fifteen year old models are viable candidates for conversion; the styling is almost timeless, so they still have a thoroughly contemporary appearance. The most sought after model is the celebrated Auto Free Top, the model with Mazda’s own factory-fitted, electrically operated roof.
The Bongo is truly the people’s campervan, with 321-Away selling its own-brand Montague Mazdas for as little as £8,000, but climbing up to around £18,000 for one of the most recent, fully equipped vehicles. A variety of conversions are available to suit the different preferences of the owners. The company’s rear kitchen version has become popular of late, allowing the installation of a full-width double bed and full use of the kitchen from under the tailgate, while the bed is still in place. The 321 Away website illustrates vehicles currently for sale and also the various layouts available. You will also find out how to claim a free, top-quality awning when you order your vehicle.
The Bongo has one of the country’s most active owners’ clubs, where you can receive advice, support and comradeship. Although regarded as entry-level campervans, such is the devotion to these enigmatic vehicles, that owners find themselves reluctant to part with them.
