Jennings Motor Group has expanded its business by offering customers the option to convert their new or used commercial vehicles into bespoke camper vans.

The AM100 retail group’s Ford Transit Centre is kicking the new retail opportunity with the sale of a Ford Transit Custom 290 Colour Edition, which is now on sale at the company’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership, in Middlesbrough.

Stockton-based Nesmo Truck Bodies, which became part of the Jennings Motor Group in October last year, completed the conversion and now hopes to follow the operation up with similar builds for the group’s commercial vehicle customers.

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.”

Finished in Shadow Black with contrasting Red ‘Pop Top’ roof, Jennings’ current conversion incorporates a double bed, insulated sides and a two-tone fitted carpet.

The four berth model also 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. 

Jennings said that 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.

Craig Lofthouse, foreman at Nesmo Truck Bodies, 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.”

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