​Introduction  

Campervans are a beacon of growth as Brits look to add variety to their holiday options. Campervans allow flexibility, autonomy and a fantastic opportunity to explore this diverse country - from the Scottish Highlands to the Atlantic Highway. Campervans give people the liberty to holiday with choice. 

A recent survey of 2,000 adults commissioned by Auto Trader found that 71% would consider staying in a luxury caravan, campervan or motorhome. The number of people looking to buy has increased markedly, with advert views on top-end models seeing a 156% increase. People expect modern convenience, and little compromise. Glampervanning is here, and Vauxhall has the perfect offering.

Wellhouse

Wellhouse Leisure is based in Barnsley and has been building campervans since 2002. It has manufactured more than 2500 since then. For the seven years prior to 2002, Wellhouse was involved in importing and selling motorhomes and in total has more than 25 years of knowledge and successful history in this segment.

All Wellhouse campervans meet the rigid requirements second stage European Whole Vehicle Type Approval (EC WVTA), and this is no different to Vauxhall Vivaro. As an approved conversion, Wellhouse matches the base vehicle warranty of 3yrs/100k miles.

From CEO David Elliott:

“Wellhouse are delighted to be working with Vauxhall and have many years’ experience in working with other manufacturers and selling through their dealer networks. We have been building the award-winning Matino* for 4 years, and so the new Vivaro had a head start in terms of design and production. Wellhouse had seen an increase in sales even before Covid-19 but since June, forward orders are 250% up. We are also impressed with Vauxhall’s desire to introduce this exciting campervan to the dealer network.

Wellhouse welcomes visiting dealers with the demonstration camper as we think it is important for dealers to see it close, and let all sales staff have a detailed look at it.”

*Matino is also K0-based as Vivaro, and was the winner of its class in the 2018 Caravan & Motorhome Club Design Awards
