Wellhouse Leisure launches £20k campervan

Award-winning Wellhouse Leisure, the maker of the Ford Terrier – the 2014 Campervan of the Year – has launched another new campervan.

The new model is aimed at those looking for a value-for-money conversion. It is based on a used (around 10 years old and up to 70k miles) Toyota Alphard MPV imported from Japan, which Wellhouse then converts to the same standard, style and specification as its new campervan models. On-the-road prices start from just £20,000.

The standard specification includes an elevating roof, rock ‘n’ roll seat/bed system, Webasto diesel heater, kitchen with sink, two-burner hob and top-loading compressor fridge, a portable toilet, fresh and waste water tanks, LED lighting, mains hook-up, leisure battery, plus swivelling front seats.

Options available include a bike rack, awning, solar panel and towbar, plus a bunk for the elevating roof to make it a three-berth.

The Alphard’s standard specification includes electric folding mirrors, climate control air-conditioning, ABS brakes and electric, tinted windows. Most also have alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, plus a reversing camera and electric side door. All are sold fully serviced and with a three-year AA 5-Star warranty, 12 months’ MoT and six months’ road tax. All have automatic transmissions and a choice of two petrol engines – a four-cylinder, 2.4-litre or a 3-litre V6. All-wheel drive models are also available.

“Although our new models like the Ford Terrier are proving a huge success, we never forget that there’s plenty of people who love camping but have smaller budgets, so we’ve always been proud to offer our imported, used Japanese conversions with all the benefits of a brand new campervan for a much more modest investment,” said David Elliott, Managing Director of Wellhouse Leisure.

“The Alphard is a really luxurious base vehicle and like a Lexus in terms of quality and specification. It feels like a car to drive and is surprisingly economical, so we would encourage everyone to test drive one to see for themselves how good it is. It also looks stunning and will be a great, more luxurious successor to the Toyota Granvia and Regius that we’ve converted 750 of in the last eight years, so we are looking forward to converting the Alphard for many years to come,” he continued.
