Wellhouse Leisure is launching a new LWB (long wheelbase) version of its award-winning Ford Custom Terrier (Campervan of the Year 2014), which makes its debut at The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC in Birmingham (17 to 22 February 2015).
The 37 cm longer, 5.3 m body length with the high-roof offers noticeably more interior living space and room for key features such as an L-shape kitchen and a rear, corner washroom with shower and Dometic cassette toilet. It will also have the option of a hot water system.
Like all Terrier models, the high-top model still offers seating for five people as it uses the same, sliding rear seat as the pop-top version, giving the flexibility to vary the amount of storage or living space, as required.
It also shares the high standard specification of the Terrier SE model, so includes alloy wheels, twin swiveling front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, DAB radio, metallic paint, a 95W solar panel, SMEV mini-grill, SMEV sink and hob with glass lid, Waeco 40-litre fridge and Eberspacher heating with a digital control panel. Additional features include an electric step and Heki rooflight.
Despite a much higher standard specification than other campervans, on the road prices for the new Terrier high-top model start from £46,000. It is available to order now for first deliveries in early summer 2015.
A total of 23 Ford retailers across the UK are now agents for the new Wellhouse Ford Terrier, the first UK campervan conversion based on the new Ford Transit Custom Kombi, making it easy to view one locally. A full list of Wellhouse agent is available from www.wellhouseleisure.com/ford.
David Elliott, managing director of Wellhouse Leisure commented: “We get many people wanting a compact campervan with the added extra of a proper toilet, which is always a challenge to achieve, but the LWB version provides the perfect solution. It is an exciting new model, offering all the same drivability, stylish looks and value for money, with the luxury of extra living space and full on-board facilities, yet is still compact enough to use as an everyday vehicle.”
