Potty MRV

 

The MRV’s reputation for intelligent versatility lived up to its reputation following a visit to the garden centre!

 

 

 

Martin & Jill have just used their newly fitted multi rail to connect a Kyham Sleeper drive-a-way awning to their Hi-line MRV.  The awnings exterior frame allows quick erection and it's robust against winds, the additional of the sleeper pod leaves ample habitation space, plus the new doors in the connecting tunnel add convenience.

New Auto Camper owners Grant & Rachel couldn’t wait to enjoy their MRV Hi line and headed straight for South Wales to enjoy the sunset.

 

 

September 2016

 

Keen sailors Grant & Rachel had an unusual requirement to carry boat masts which were too long to mount on their boat trailer, the solution was to mount the masts on the side of the Hi line roof.  By working with Grant, Auto Campers suggested mounting brackets typically used by the fire brigade and fitted them to the steel roof with stainless steel fittings.  Apparently these are the “short” masts!

2015 Caravan & Camping show

96,000 visitors, 6 days and the launch of our new MRV proved exhausting, yet very successful.

The new MRV (Multi Recreational Vehicle) received considerable attention from both press and visitors, essentially it’s a hybrid between the Day and Leisure Van offering up to 5 travel seats, a suspended bed over a flexible load space complete with a 2 burner hob, large water tanks, 240V hook up and a 100W solar panel new for 2016.

“Bright, quality, value and Innovative”  were words we heard frequently over the 6 days, the new MRV has definitely consolidated our reputation for Intelligent versatility and the lime green, copper orange and gloss white furniture received complimentary comments about how “fresh” our Campers looked.  You won’t find “Beige” on the Auto Camper option any time soon!

We hope to see you in February 2016 in hall 4 stand 4039.

New Day Van Hi-line demonstrator

The New Hi line is an exciting new model which with the benefit of Ford’s Kenetic design manages to balance a subtle roof line with a pragmatic interior, The Hi-line is a more affordable option than the traditional Pop top and 5 overhead lockers provide “organised” multiple storage solutions. The permanent fixed roof offers greater comfort and really comes into its element through the colder months. This Camper wins your heart and your head.

Camper Van of the year 2015

We are delighted to have won such a prestigious award. The judges felt our Camper stood out because it was the most Innovative and well executed genuine multipurpose vehicle they have seen. No other conversion they have saw could offer up to 8 comfortable seats or provide such a large bed and simply transform from one format to the next.

After 10 years in the Leisure industry we take this award as a massive endorsement and take great pride in that our philosophy of Innovation, quality and value has been recognised. With the New Leisure Van due in February 2015 we look forward to a busy year!

NEW DAY VAN COMBINATION FOUND

Mr & Mrs R thought they had to wait for the new Leisure Van, however once they spent time with us setting the Day Van up in different configurations it became obvious their need for  2 boats on the roof and a large boot led them to the Day Van – The twist was, we found the top wardrobe unit sits on top of the telescopic cross beams, giving them a full width boot accessible from the rear doors and habitation space, together with the top wardrobe unit giving easy access to kitchen and everyday bit & bobs. Plus 4 can travel in full width comfortable travel seats & they sleep soundly on a 4’3” x 6’1” bed.

24th November 2014

Customer feedback is invaluable and allows us to evolve our Campers. The one thing we learnt from the NEC was our model names were to complicated. Moving forward our current model range with 3 roof heights will all be called "Day Vans". The Day Vans will be defined by their 2-8 travel seats, 2-4 berths, removable modules and over 200 combinations.

22nd October 2014

Delighted and exhausted following the launch of the new day van last week at the NEC.

Both low line and pop top demonstrators were exhibited to press and visitors with an emphasis on illustrating lifestyle with props and the help of multiple TV screens.

The innovative concept of eight travel seats and removable modules was greeted with interest and enthusiasm, more road test information coming soon.

   

5th March 2014

Niall Hampton Editor of Practical Motorhome taken Leisure Van for Road test and review, Initial comments very Innovative and well built – Look out for report to be published soon.

25th February 2014

Type approval gained. New legislation in April 2012 now requires Camper converters to comply with rigorous safety tests to prove elements such as seats are strong enough to protect occupants in the event of an accident. If approval is attained before registration the vehicle can be registered as a Camper with the advantage of  lower road fund tax and 70MPH speed limit on dual carriageways (60MPH for a van)

18th February 2014

New Transit Custom Auto Camper Leisure Van is launched at the NEC.  Excellent media and visitor attention surrounding New Hi-line model exhibited, 2 magazine road tests booked already and very positive show feedback recognising the unique compact body profile and surprisingly flexible  storage.  The King size bed and zoned kitchen and dining areas received equal comment.

22nd - 28th February 2011
The first Auto campers conversion was completed just in time for it's debut at the NEC in Birmingham. Despite running out of time to invite our contacts within the motorhome press, we were delighted with the overwhelming vote of confidence and congratulated on a "fresh and outstanding" conversion which represented value and quality.

Both the Caravan Club and Caravan & Camping Club will feature the launch in their magazines and both have asked to test a conversion as soon as we have a production demonstrator available. Candy Evans even went so far to say "The Auto Camper conversion was so unique, it may even be of interest for her to purchase!".

We thank the press for their positive encouragement and are proud to have manufactured a conversion worthy of such attention.

We also expect all the leading motohome magazines to run images and articles over the next couple of months, plus they also want a vehicle to test.... So keep our site book marked for more up dates & reports.
