The new Ford Transit Custom Nugget Camper is ready to take up to four people on a trip, providing them with all the comfort features required of a home away from home.
Unveiled at the 2019 Brussels Motor Show in Belgium, it was developed in collaboration with Westfalia and comes in two different versions, with the ‘Plus’ long wheelbase offering some extra equipment, as well as more space inside.
Based on the regular Transit Custom, the Nugget Camper has a double bed that folds out in the roof space, and a second living area with another double bed that folds out whenever needed. The L-shaped kitchenette at the rear is equipped with a double-burner gas cooker, sink and 40-liter refrigerator, whereas fresh and waste water is supplied from the on-board tanks.
There’s room for five people around the fold-out table, and three more can sit on the forward-facing bench. Additionally, the driver and passenger front seats swivel 180 degrees thanks to the folding handbrake, and there’s another fold-out table with two more chairs available as an optional extra.
Opting for the Transit Custom Nugget Camper Plus means you get an even more spacious cabin. This is 36.7 cm (14.4 in) longer than the standard variant and adds a larger wardrobe, built-in toilet with foldaway wash basin and high roof design.
Both camper vans feature auxiliary heating, easy-to-clean wood-effect floor, rear privacy glass and flip-open windows. They can be specced with a premium sound system and racks for bikes and sports equipment.
Power comes from a new 2.0-liter EcoBlue diesel engine, offered with 130 PS (128 hp / 95 kW) or 170 PS (168 hp / 125 kW) that can be paired to two six-speed transmissions, a manual or an automatic one.
The Transit Custom Nugget Camper vans will launch this spring in selected European markets such as Germany, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and Italy, with others to follow.
