New Volkswagen campervan converter hits the market
Wellhouse Leisure has launched a subsidiary building Volkswagen T5 campervansThe Yorkshire-based company, which is better known for converting Japanese and Korean vehicles, launched the new business – Volksleisure – to bring its converting expertise to this popular sector of the campervan market.
Wellhouse and Volksleisure boss DavidElliott accepts he’s joining an already burgeoning market sector, but says, ‘There are plenty of other companies out there producing conversions on pre-owned T5s. As ever, we just like to think we can do things that bit better.’
David says that build quality and safety will be the key attributes of the conversions, on both new and pre-owned T5s.
All interiors are made in-house. As part of their commitment to quality and customer experience, Volksleisure have devised a ‘Ten P-point Plan’. This covers everything from Pedigree, Price and Performance, to Production Values and the use of Proven Parts.
He explains, ‘Lots of folk out there claim to specialise in Volkswagens. Some are, but how can they prove it? And how can they prove they also know what they’re doing when it comes to producing campers?’
The new VW campervans will be available at Westward Leisure in Devon, AVA Leisure in Surrey, Highland Campervans in Inverness and Big Tree Campers in Perthshire.
Currently, two versions of the Volksleisure T5 are available: the Aspley and Aspley SE. On-the-road prices start at £30,000 for a conversion on a pre-owned vehicle and £40,000 for an all-new campervan. All pre-owned models are based on vehicles aged 18-24 months old and with less than 25,000 miles recorded.
All Volksleisure products will come with a three-year warranty covering both the conversion and the base vehicle.
