DETAILED REVIEW

With its premises in Elland, West Yorkshire, WildAx builds a range of van conversions based on the Ford Transit Custom, Renault Master, Mercedes Sprinter and Citroën Relay. All of its conversions have European Whole Vehicle Type Approval and NCC (National Caravan Council) approval.

The Aurora is Citroën-based with a Euro 6d 2.2-litre HdI 140bhp engine under the bonnet, matched to a six-speed gearbox. It also comes in two lengths – the standard Aurora being 5.99m-long while the XL version measures 6.36m.

Earlier this year, the Aurora XL was awarded second place in the ‘Best van conversions £45k – £55k’ category at the Caravan & Motorhome club's Motorhome Design Awards.

Whichever size you choose, they both come with a rear fixed folding bed (said to measure 6ft 2in by 4ft 6in) that offers good under-bed storage that can be accessed from the rear, the front, or by lifting the bed up, which clips up in the vertical position.

If you would prefer to enjoy a rear lounge during the day then the Aurora Leisure layout (also available in the two lengths) features two side sofas (with storage below) that slide together to form a double bed.

The Leisure model also has side windows in the rear so you can see out when lounging. Both the Aurora and Aurora Leisure, in regular and XL form, have a seating/dining area up front that can be arranged into a single bed (said to measure 6ft long).

In the middle of the campervan is the kitchen, with a three-way fridge/freezer, three-burner hob, oven and grill, sink with a mixer tap and a flip-top bin.

Opposite is the washroom, which has a cassette toilet, shower, basin, mirror and roof vent/window.

All WildAx campervans are fully winterised, making them ideal for year-round camping. This is achieved by insulating the whole camper including water tanks, which have a 12V frost protection system installed. All models feature Truma iNet, enabling your Truma Combi to be controlled from an app on your phone.

Further standard equipment on the Aurora range includes 100-litre fresh water and waste water tanks, underslung LPG tank, 100Ah leisure battery, cab Remis window blinds, and pre-wiring for a solar panel. Stuff that comes fitted as standard on the Citroën Relay base vehicle includes driver and passenger airbags, cruise control, sat-nav, cab air-con, rear parking sensors, reversing camera, DAB touchscreen stereo, Bluetooth, leather steering wheel and gear knob, alloy wheels and metallic paint.

The WildAx campervan lowdown

WildAx offers a range of van conversions based primarily on Fiat Ducato and Citroën Relay, but also the Renault Master, Ford Transit Custom and Mercedes Sprinter.

All its vehicles have European Whole Vehicle Type Approval and National Caravan Council (NCC) approval.

In addition to new and used campervan and motorhome sales, WildAx offers campervan hire so you can try before you buy, which is always a good idea.

In 2017, WildAx was acquired by the French Rapido Group, where the British brand joins a portfolio of specialist campervan brands like Dreamer, Stylevan and Westfalia. If you’d like to buy a WildAx, visit Scot Motorhomes (Perth), Kelly Mobility (Dublin), ES Hartley (Cumbria and Cheshire), Highbridge (Devon), Maple Garage (Hull), Becks Motorhomes (Norfolk), Nick Whale (Worcestershire), Wiltshire Motorhomes, or Southern Motorhomes Centre (Reading).
