Ford Transit Undergoes Transformation Into Motorhome

Issue 38

Jennings Ford Transit Centre, part of Jennings Motor Group, has expanded its business, by offering customers the option to convert their new or used commercial vehicles into bespoke mobile motor homes.

Currently on sale at the company’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough, is a Ford Transit Custom 290 L1 H1 170 PS 6 Speed Colour Edition, which has recently undergone a complete conversion by Stockton-based Nesmo Truck Bodies, also part of Jennings Motor Group.

Finished in Shadow Black with contrasting Red ‘Pop Top’ roof, incorporating a double bed, the converted model, which also offers Gloss Black Alloy Wheels, and a sports trim exterior with decals, colour coded Red mirrors and a front spoiler, is on display and available to test drive at the Middlesbrough-based dealership.

Commenting on the new conversion concept facility, group commercial manager, Alan Bailes, said; “This is an exciting and innovative service we are offering customers who are looking for a high quality and competitively-priced motorhome – with the Ford Transit being the ideal model for a conversion.”

Fully fitted with privacy glass, insulated sides and a two-tone fitted carpet, the four berth model offers a Leatherette Rib Seat Bed, which has been crash tested in order to ensure the safe travel of up to two passengers, in addition to offering two single front seats set on swivel bases. Other features include a removable table, a 230V hook-up power supply, leisure battery, interior touch on/off LED lights, double gas hob, 12V/230V fridge, sink, Diesel powered interior heating, Driftwood interior units with a black work surface, Tambour doors to units, LED Side Door floor entrance light, USB ports, and a Power Invertor.

Those considering taking advantage of this new concept on offer at Jennings Ford Transit Centre, have plenty of options to choose from. Everything from a basic conversion, which adds windows and an insulated carpeted interior, to full bespoke conversions are available.

Customers are expected to wait up to four weeks from the point of order through to the final conversion – depending on stock supply – for their fully converted Ford Transit motorhome.

Craig Lofthouse, foreman at Nesmo Truck Bodies, which provides commercial vehicle body building and repairs to the commercial vehicle industry, utility suppliers and local authorities, was responsible for overseeing the project, he said; “We pride ourselves on providing high quality workmanship, this coupled with an experienced and highly skilled team and our second to none customer service, enabled us to complete the conversion to the highest standard, and within the allocated project timescale.”
