VW converter Jerba Campervans sees record orders

Volkswagen campervan converter, Jerba Campervans, has seen soaring demand for its Transporter conversions, receiving more than 40 per cent of its typical annual orders in September 2020 alone. 

The North Berwick-based converter's production schedule is now full until November 2021.

As a result, Jerba has pre-ordered more than 40 brand-new base vehicles from Volkswagen in Europe, ahead of the UK's exit from the EU.

Simon Poole, co-founder of Jerba Campervans, said: “We are doing everything we can to ensure Jerba Campervans transitions into Brexit as smoothly as possible. Having orders scheduled well into next year will provide a welcomed cushion as we steer into what looks set to be a difficult and uncertain period for a lot of businesses.

“With the emergence of a staycation boom due to the Covid pandemic and the looming Brexit deadline, we have seen a record autumn in customers pre-ordering their VW campervans. What this will enable us to do is pre-order our parts from our VW suppliers on the Continent. Despite trepidations in the evolving market we are delighted to have set a new record for orders.”
