Bilbo's launch new long-wheelbase Nexa+ campervan
Bilbo’s, one of the UK’s longest-established VW campervan converters (founded in 1977), has unveiled its latest model, the long-wheelbase version of its Nexa+.
The new long-wheelbase Nexa+ was launched at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show in February and joins the short-wheelbase Nexa+ debuted at last October’s NEC show (read the review in the May 2020 issue of MMM magazine).
Based on the newly facelifted T6.1 Volkswagen Transporter Kombi, the Nexa+ has Bilbo’s trademark Low-Lie elevating roof and a layout featuring a rear fitted cassette toilet. The longer model offers increased storage over the SWB model, especially on the offside where the extra cabinets are full height. The LWB Nexa+ also benefits from an unusually generous amount of kitchen worktop for this type of campervan.
David Latham, Partner at Bilbo’s, commented: “This really has been the conversion of the year for us here at Bilbo’s. Now for those seeking even more space for fully self-sufficient extended trips away, we are excited to display our LWB version for the very first time.”
The long-wheelbase T6.1 Nexa+ costs £2,500 more than the short-wheelbase, with on-the-road prices starting at £52,950. Bilbo’s has also introduced a new lithium battery option and a new lightweight roof bed. All its campers are NCC-approved.
