Live a life less ordinary in our Super Cool Camper, “Aosta”, named after the Italian alpine valley. This adventure van utilises a MWB Sprinter, but expands the width by the addition of side pods. The game changing, side pods are bonded to the vehicles sides and allow a full size double bed to be positioned width-ways. This allows taller adventures to sleep comfortably and saves ~2 foot that would otherwise be taken up if the bed was orientated lengthways. This creates additional space for a generous kitchen and cushioned seating area with cleverly designed pull-out table. The vehicle is a high top such that adventurers under 6’2″ can stand-up comfortably.
The 2 berth campervan is designed with weekend adventure in mind. It may be a long weekend at the beach or a summer summit attempt of an alpine peak. The van is fully insulated with vapor barrier combined with a thermostatically controlled, 2KW diesel heater will keep you warm and toasty through the night.
The van electrics allow you to be “off-grid” for short periods of time (i.e. 2/3 days) and comprise 2ooW Renogy Solar Panels, Epever 30A MPPT Charge Controller, 110AH AGM Leisure Battery and a 500W AC-DC inverter, capable of powering your devices and TV! The living space is illuminated by four touch-operated LED lights.
Clever electronics provide the ability to charge the leisure battery whilst on the move (Durite Smart VSR) as well as mains charging (Portable Power Technology) when hooked up to 240V AC on a campsite. This electrical power is supplied to a number of top of the range creature comforts such as: an automatic, remotely controlled ventilation (Deluxe Maxx Fan); running cold water supply to the kitchen tap (10L/min submersible whale pump); a 45L SMAD absorption fridge and 19.5” LCD TV.
The kitchen is home to a Thetford 2 hob gas burner and grill and a Thetford “Argent” sink built into a solid oak worktop, which has been cleverly designed to be lightweight. Ample storage is provided in the form three deep, pan drawers, two cutlery drawers and a cupboard unit. Overhead storage spans the ~3.1m length of the van on the driver’s side. All drawers and cupboards utilise a soft close mechanism.
Hang out with your friends in the evening by either rolling out the awning (Dometik) and tucking into a BBQ or by sitting inside the van by means of the in-built seating with sliding table and a double bench, swivel seat opening out the cab area for two additional guest to sit.
Hiking, mountaineering, biking or climbing, the garage area has a large storage capacity for all your activity equipment. It also houses a portable, chemical toilet, which is accessible from inside the vehicle if you get caught short at night and it is too cold or wet to venture outside.
The vehicle is fitted with a reversing camera, carbon monoxide detector and comes with insulating (reflectix) blackout blinds with magnetic fixings.
The vehicle is still registered as a Panel Van since the DVLA are not processing VC5 form alterations due to Covid-19. The van is compliant with the DVLA’s definition of a motorhome so the vehicle type can easily be changed.
Optional external mountain decals can be applied on request. A van tour video is posted on youtube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKTUpBFW-oo&t=35s
