In the same year it celebrates its 50th anniversary, Stowford Farm Meadows, the award-winning touring caravan site with its own successful caravan and motorhome dealerships in Devon and Llantrisant, South Wales, has used its extensive experience and technical expertise to carefully develop its own high quality, affordable campervans based on low mileage, pre-owned Volkswagen T5s.
Stowford’s attention to detail and quality is proven by details such as the professional installation of the electrical system and high quality gas fittings, including a specially designed steel locker (with rubber door seal) to store the gas cylinder, all developed and fitted by Stowford’s qualified staff with extensive technical knowledge gained from servicing and repairing caravans and motorhomes for many years.
A dedicated unit has been established for campervan production at Stowford Farm Meadows, and great care has been taken to choose fittings from established local suppliers who share Stowford’s commitment to quality and service.
Stowford carefully sources low mileage Volkswagen Transporter vans, usually ranging from 2012 to 2014 models with a 102 PS, 2.0 TDI engine, all with electric windows, air conditioning and twin rear doors or a tailgate, and then adds swivelling front seats (even for vehicles with a twin passenger seat), plus stylish alloy wheels and sidebars to complete the look.
“Unlike some campervans we’ve seen, we believe we have approached the development of our campervans from a different perspective, as our strength is our highly qualified and experienced staff who have really focused on ensuring the highest technical standards for all gas, water and electrical systems to ensure they are safe, with maximum durability and easier to maintain,” said Andrew Noall, Dealer Principal of Stowford Caravan and Motorhome Centres.
“We’re really pleased with the response to our first campervan models, so are delighted to have a tempting selection all ready for the holiday season at our sales centres in Devon and South Wales,” he continued.
On road prices for the new converter models range between £30,000 and £35,000.
