EXCLUSIVE: Auto-Trail to launch campervan

40e0b207-ebd8-4b07-8725-6b208cdd62e0

British motorhome manufacturer, Auto-Trail, which is famous for its large high-end coachbuilts, is to launch a van conversion in time for the 2014 season

The van will be based on a long-wheel base Fiat Ducato but, unusually for a van conversion, it will have its roof replaced with a bespoke Auto-Trail roof complete with a large skylight stretching from the cab back to almost the centre of the van.

Auto-Trail confirmed to www.outandaboutlive.co.uk - the home of MMM and Which Motorhome magazines - that the campervan will be badged as an Auto-Trail and will be manufactured at its modern production plant based in northeast Lincolnshire.

The new campervan will have a high basic specification with an options list that will allow customers to personalise their vehicle, said Auto-Trail.

Standard will be items such as alloy wheels, recessed awning and the extra long skylight. There will also be bespoke double glazed windows that sit flush with the exterior bodywork.

Prices, layouts and final specifications have yet to be announced but expect the campervan to be competing at the top end of the market.

The news, which was only confirmed to outandaboutlive at this week's motorhome and caravan show at the NEC in Birmingham, follows Lunar's move to launch a micro-campervan.
