I designed the Manhattan range to fill the need for a well specified modern family campervan for two to five people. The Manhattan Compact and the more spacious Manhattan MPV are based on the brilliant Nissan NV300 or its twin, the Renault Trafic. These vans are wonderful to drive and are an even better boxy shape for conversion than the Volkswagen T6. Just like the VW Caledonia it has a side kitchen, with a Smev two-burner hob and sink unit and useful cupboards. You can have up to three travel seats in the cab and two on the back seat, which transforms easily into a rock and roll bed, designed by myself and independently tested for safety.
All our new campervans have an underslung LPG tank to power the hob and heater, with an external BBQ point. The user-friendly control panel has USB and 12V sockets and operates the lights, gas, fridge and heater. Gauges show when to top up the LPG tank or charge the vehicle and leisure batteries. Solar panels are an option, too. Two adults can sleep in the pop-top roof on an elevating bed or on a set of padded roof boards.
The Manhattan MPV often appeals to families, since it has more floor space for a dog's bed or an ottoman behind the cab seats, which can be used as a small bed for a child. The Manhattan (SWB) starts from £34,995 (“brand new secondhand”) or from £38,995 (brand new), while the Manhattan MPV (LWB) starts from £36,995 (“brand new secondhand”) or from £40,995 (brand new).

Every vehicle is fully warrantied, we give a 12-month warranty on the vehicle (if it is not covered by the manufacturer's warranty) & 36-month warranty on everything we've built, for your complete peace of mind. You can extend this for a further 3 years for a small premium.
We offer a complete servicing and repair package, as well as your recommended yearly habitation check.
Using your campervan all year round is the best way to keep it in good condition. But if you know it will be parked up for a while we can prepare the water and heating systems for winter to ensure you can make a quick getaway in the spring!
Book a visit and we'll show you around our stock vehicles – one might be perfect for you. If you'd like to buy one of them just as it is, we can prepare it for you quickly. If you'd like different upholstery, this can be arranged too. Alternatively, if you'd like our 'Built to order' service, let's talk about how you want to use your campervan. We will show you all the gorgeous fabrics and furniture colours that you can have. If you have a hobby or specialist equipment to get on board, perhaps we can customise the campervan to make life easier? After our discussions we'll prepare a specification and quote for your approval.
