Day Van

Based on the Ford Tourneo luxury 8 seat people carrier, this compact Day Van offers unrivalled comfort with up to 8 removable seats.

Sleep soundly on a 4" luxury mattress suspended over your valued possessions securely stowed in the generous boot. The pop top model affords an optional roof bed for two.

Removable seats and furniture modules define the Day Vans true versatility, from an empty Van to a 6 seat Camper to a 8 seat people carrier, it gets close to being all things to all people.

The robust and well engineered suspended bed creates valuable floor space for Dogs to travel safely in their own space.

From bikes to canoes to wardrobes or fridge freezers the Day vans flexible load area eliminates the need for a less manoeuvrable longer wheelbase.

Twin side doors and the accessible kitchen module promote a sociable space inside or outside depending on the season.

Overview

THE CONCEPT OF THE DAY VAN is to start with a base vehicle which comes complete with 8 travel seats, an insulated floor with additional floor sockets configured to offer multiple seat plans, curtains, silver screens, lighting, 12V power socket, a swivel passenger seat, engineered fixing points and an inside/outside table.

Unlike any other Camper, you then choose what Ford options you want such as the 155ps engine, alloy wheels or tow bar for example.

Then you can start to configure your habitation options – which bed format? What seats do you want us to buy back? What furniture modules best meets your lifestyle?

Remember most habitation option can be retro fitted if not required immediately.

THE DAY VAN IS AN INNOVATIVE AWARD WINNER because of its versatility. However consider if it has to do everything?

The Auto Camper MRV also offers the same suspended bed system and removable seats, but the furniture is fixed offering 2 hobs for cooking and under floor water tanks.

If you must have 8 seats and the option of an empty Van, then read on. If you can manage with 5 seats and like more habitation facilities then also visit the Auto Campers MRV page.

Because the Tourneo and Kombi originate with the highest possible M1 (Car) safety standards and carry a 5 star rated NCAP rating, your safety is only equalled by the comfort of wide reclining

contoured Ford engineered travel seats, with isofix points on the double seats.

Best in class fuel economy and Co2 emissions is achieved with standard 6 speed manual FWD transmission, smart regenerative charging and Ford’s auto stop start. Power is delivered smoothly from the medium 125 PS output and optional 155 PS high output TDCI engines.

New car like comfort has to be experienced to be appreciated, because the Transit is a completely new design from the floor up, you will notice how well the doors shut and how easily the precise controls fall to hand as you drive effortlessly from your elevated driving position.

The Transit brand is historically recognised as the best selling most robust van used by White van man, the Post Office, the Army and as a school Minibus. Whilst the New Transit Custom maintains all the robust design, serviceability and low running costs of its predecessors, Ford have borrowed their Kinetic design and quality from Focus & Fiesta for the Transit Custom, culminating into a stylish vehicle that looks as good in Chelsea as it does in the Highlands…
