The new Wellhouse Ford Misano campervan offers excellent value for money as it is a new conversion based on used, low mileage Ford Transit Custom models between six months and three years old.
Newer models, up to 18 months old, will have Ford’s latest 130 PS, Euro 6 EcoBlue engine. Wellhouse can offer performance upgrades, if required.
The Misano, named after village near Rimini in Italy, offers the usual Wellhouse Leisure quality and design but with prices starting from £10,000 less than the similar brand new Terrier models. For example, a Misano based on a low-mileage Ford Transit Custom about 18 months old will cost around £37,000.
Although very similar to the Ford Terrier model, the Misano has a different (UK-sourced) elevating roof and sliding rear seat system, but shares the distinctive, high quality interior furniture from Tecnoform.
Wellhouse Leisure is using the Ford Transit Custom in the highest Limited trim level as the base vehicle for the Misano. This means it has items such as colour-coded bumpers, cruise control, DAB radio and an alarm as standard. It also has a double passenger seat, which can swivel to face the rear lounge when camping, and means a total of six people can travel in the Misano.
The campervan specification for the Misano carries over the high level of standard equipment Wellhouse typically inclues. This includes a kitchen unit with a sink and a two-burner gas cooker with glass cover, a 40-litre Dometic front-loading compressor fridge, Eberspacher diesel-powered, blown-air heating, 240v mains hook-up, 100w solar panel, leisure battery, plus on-board 40-litre fresh and waste water containers.
Sarah Elliott, Managing Director of Wellhouse Leisure said: “The used market for the Terrier is fantastic but we can never get enough of them, so now we will be able to offer buyers with a lower budget a Misano instead. Wellhouse has built its success on campervan conversions of used base vehicles, so we know that making the camper lifestyle more affordable to more people is a winning combination.”
“We are currently overseeing the transition of production of the Ford Terrier and Toyota Lerina to Lunar Campers in Preston, and then Wellhouse Leisure will focus on producing other models like the Misano,” added Sarah.
The Misano is currently available directly from Wellhouse Leisure at its premises at Skelmanthorpe, near Huddersfield in Yorkshire.
