Wellhouse Leisure has launched a new, long wheelbase (LWB), high-roof version of its award-winning Ford Terrier campervan (the Campervan of the Year 2014) at The Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC, Birmingham (17 to 22 February 2015).
The 37 cm longer body (at 5.3 m long) with a factory-fitted high-roof offers noticeably more interior living space and room for convenient extra features such as a high-roof, L-shape kitchen and a rear, corner washroom with a Dometic cassette toilet.
Like all Terrier models, the two-berth, LWB High-Top model still offers seating for five people as it uses the same, crash-tested sliding rear seat as the pop-top version to give the flexibility to bring passengers nearer the front seats while travelling or vary the amount of storage or living space, as required.
It also shares a class-leading, high standard specification with two trim levels available, S and SE. The Terrier LWB High-Top S model includes a SMEV sink and hob with glass lid, Waeco 40-litre fridge, while the SE gains Eberspacher heating with a digital control panel, 95W solar panel, alloy wheels and an electric step.
The Ford Transit Custom kombi base vehicle has an economical 2.2 TD engine with 125 PS, plus a high level of standard equipment compared to rivals, including: twin swivelling front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, cruise control, DAB radio, metallic paint and rear parking sensors.
Despite a much higher standard specification than most other campervans, the stylish, new High-Top, long wheelbase Terrier offers great value for money with on the road prices starting from £41,500 for the S model and £44,000 for the SE. It is available to order now for first deliveries in early summer.
David Elliott, managing director of Wellhouse Leisure added: “We are delighted to expand the Terrier range with this exciting, stylish new LWB, High-Top model. It offers all the stylish looks, ‘driveability’ and value for money as our existing pop-top model, but with the luxury of extra living and storage space plus full on-board facilities, yet is still compact enough to use every day.”
