3 All-terrain Campervans

A campervan provides a fantastic means of seeking adventure out on the road. It’ll take care of your accommodation and your transport in one go, giving you greater flexibility while planning a holiday. As well as being a frugal way to live, it can also be a luxurious one, if you choose the right vehicle. You have two options: you can buy an already built van or do DIY conversion. If you want to save money and do your custom conversion, here’s a tip: Get yourself a cargo Mercedes Sprinter and buy van conversion kit.

With so many different kinds of campervan available, it can be difficult to determine which one best matches your needs. You’ll want to bear in mind the range of factors that contribute to the cost of running a campervan, including fuel, licences and campervan insurance from a specialist insurer.

Let’s take a look at three candidates, and compare their various strengths and weaknesses.

Winnebago Revel Camper Van

The Winnebago brand name is synonymous with a certain kind of camper-van. Big, full-featured, and luxurious, these RVs took America by storm. But they also provide more compact offerings, like the Revel.

Every Revel starts life as an empty shell of a Mercedes Sprinter, which comes with the German manufacturer’s four-wheel drive system. This represented something of a gamble for the Iowa-based company, as it represents the first mass-produced four-wheel-drive campervan to be sold in the US. Inside, you’ll find a place to store gear and sleep, as well as a few other basic necessities. It boasts power enough to tow loads of more than 2,000kg – which makes it ideal for those looking to take a boat down to their sailing destination of choice. With powerful off-road capability, this is a great match for those seeking outdoor adventure.

VW Crafter VanWorx

Volkswagen camper vans have been a fixture in our cultural memory since the sixties. VanWorx, a UK-based company, have modified the Crafter to make it even more capable. Much of the original remains intact, but what’s changed is the vehicle’s ability to tackle off-road terrain. These conversions are built on request, and so there’s no limit to the options you can bolt on, including solar panels, extra suspension, winches and specialised tyres. If you find you’re often travelling across rough countryside, it’s an appealing candidate – but you’ll need to pay for the privilege of driving it, as vehicles of this sort start at around £80,000.

Ford Terrier M Sport

The ‘M-Sport’ version of Ford’s terrier is built with a focus less on comfort and off-road performance, and more on straight-line speed. If you’re crossing vast distances in your van, then that extra performance is sure to make a difference to your overall experience of travel. It comes with a six-speed gearbox, lowered suspension, and widened wheel arches. As such, it’ll be able to turn heads as you pull up onsite, and it’s ideal for those who don’t like the idea of being seen driving a camper van.

The interior is no less stylish, sporting distinctive swivel-style leather seats, fridges, toilets, hobs and other amenities like solar panels. Among the more eye-catching features is the fully starlit roof, via which you’ll be able to kick back and take in the stars while you’re settling down for the night. All that you need to do is find a patch of the world without any light pollution!
