For the second year in a row, this prestigious award, voted for by you – readers and campervanners – has been won by CamperKing.
This is the only campervan award not judged by our editorial team, and the emphasis here is on customer service and aftercare as well as the quality of the vehicle. CamperKing is one of the biggest campervan converters in the UK, producing up to 35 Volkswagen Transporters a week.
That’s a lot of campervans, with the potential for lots to go wrong, so it says much about the company that so many people chose to give it their vote, two years in a row. CamperKing is not a name you’ll have seen at the major motorhome shows but it reckons it builds more camper conversions on the Transporter than anyone else in the UK.
In fact, it works exclusively with Transporters to create a fleet of campervans to suit varying customer needs and price points. Its premises, near Banbury in Oxfordshire, was previously a prestige car sales site where CamperKing can display up to seven of its campervans indoors, as well as showing different flooring, worktops, wheels, etc, to potential customers in its ‘configuration lounge’.
It has also MoT facilities on site and an accessory shop selling everything from sleeping bags to awnings.
As well as selling campers direct, the company offers its VW-based range from 17 dealers around the UK. Its models – Portofino, Monte Carlo, Le Mans, St Tropez, Santorini, and the new Pursuit day van, are usually based on pre-registered panel vans as none of its conversions yet have Type Approval. At the time of writing, its stock ranged in price from £15,000 (on a 2000 van) up to £72,000.
