Staycations boost interest in camper vans | September 2020

Increased interest in camping holidays at home has prompted Hendy Group to offer an innovative camper van at its FordStore in Hampshire.

The Ford Transit Custom Nugget camper van is now available from Hendy's FordStore in Eastleigh where it is proving an early success.

"We know that coronavirus has led to a massive shift in holidays this year and camping really seems to have come out top," said David Graham, Transit Centre brand manager. "The Nugget camper van is proving really popular with buyers looking for a home away from home and the fact that it sleeps up to four adults is a real bonus."

The availability of the Nugget camper van at Hendy FordStore comes at a time when outdoor retailer Regatta says that demand for camping equipment has tripled compared with last year and the Camping and Caravanning Club said recruitment of new members was up 55 per cent in one week alone in July.

"The arrival of the Nugget is perfectly timed to meet demand from a wide range of buyers and with people looking to holiday at home throughout the year they want something comfortable, practical and warm."

He said that Nugget also boasts a kitchen, power and water supply and the option of a bicycle rack which David said was proving a real hit with buyers looking to explore the countryside.

The Nugget is priced from £57,042.00 including VAT, with customer saving/finance plans available.

Shortlist is currently empty.
