Auto-Sleeper replaces the Symbol
Aside from problems with base vehicle supply, Auto-sleepers’ has, it seems, had difficulties with quality control; new production director, Simon Vaughan, has been the driving force behind organisation and housekeeping improvements at the firm’s Cotswold factory.
The new Symbol is one of the first new models to take advantage of the improved production facilities and Auto-Sleepers has taken time to try to get it just right.
Based on the new medium-wheelbase Peugeot Boxer, the Symbol looks superb – particularly good as it is built on the window van version with dark tinted, factory-fitted living area windows cutting a dash.
The most important design feature is the raised rear floor matching the floor level of the cab. This is crucial in the front lounge as swivelled cab seats and the offside lounge sofa are all now at the same height.
It costs £35,850 on-the-road for the 2.2-litre, 100bhp version.
