Auto-Trail Expedition campervan
 

The Auto-Trail campervan collection welcomes a brand-new range for the 20201 season, with the introduction of the Expedition.

Incorporating a standard specification full of practical features, a 140bhp engine and one fixed price, the newly developed Expedition range offers the best value of its kind on the market.

If you’re looking to experience the active and adventurous campervan lifestyle – perhaps an ambition you have always dreamed of – the Expedition provides the ideal opportunity.

There are two models in the new range, the Expedition 66, featuring two seatbelts, and the Expedition 67, which features four seatbelts. Both have a rear lounge layout and are a succinct 5.99m in length.

With a starting price of £36,995 on the road, both the Expedition 66 and 67 sport a metallic black external colour as standard, and dynamic Auto-Trail graphics.

There are a number of excellent elements and features on both Expedition models.

Cab air-conditioning and cruise control ensure a smooth and comfortable driving experience, while the driver and passenger airbags, fitted as standard, will ensure safety for everyone on board. Driver and passenger seats swivel.

Inside, there is a plush new soft furnishing scheme, with modern upper locker doors which complement beautifully with the Salinas Oak wood and provide a stylish living interior. The kitchen is fitted with a two-burner hob, oven and grill, and there’s
also a fridge.

All 2021 compact leisure vehicles from Auto-Trail are fitted with the new chassis-mounted Whale Heat Air space and Expanse water heating system featuring the easy-to-use Heat Control panel.

Together with a new pull-out bed mechanism, this creates additional valuable storage space underneath the bed when made up.

Auto-Trail V-Line campervan

For the 2021 season there are a number of revised features and enhancements across the V-Line SE, and Sport range – and brand-new models in the S range.

The V-Line S range incorporates four models. The 660, 670 and 680 are all two berths with rear lounges, while the 669 has sleeping space for four; there are four belted seats in all layouts other than the 660, which has two.

The SE range of four models (540, 610, 634, 635) are two-berths ranging in length from just 5.41m up to 6.36m, while the quartet in the Sport range (610, 634, 635, 636) are all also two-berths. 

All V-Line models sit on the Fiat Ducato, 140bhp as standard. Cost options include the addition of a Panoview, a panoramic roof skylight.

There are also two Enhancement Packs; the Lux Pack is for S models only, and the Media Pack for SE and Sport models.

Auto-Trail Adventure campervan



The hugely popular Adventure range continues for the 2021 season, boosted with new features.

There are two models in this family-friendly range. The Adventure 55 is 5.99m in length, while the 65 is longer at 6.36m. Both have rear lounge layouts, with generous lengthways sofas on either side of the interior, stretching out to the doors at the back.

These are in the ideal spot for relaxing and enjoying the scenery of the country.

At night, this seating converts into a large double bed. There is a further bed for two in the elevated insulated roof; here, you’ll find a 6ft double bed with ventilation, USB charge points and reading lights. Both models have four belted travel seats.

Features for 2021 include Cab-Plus, which increases the cab headroom through an integrated curved ceiling, and new 4.7kW Whale gas and electric heating and hot water.
