The Manhattan VX-e is a spacious, gas free and ULEZ compliant campervan. 

The Manhattan VX-e is based on the award-winning Renault traffic van. We at Sussex Campervans are very proud of our latest campervan. The new VX-e is the latest step forward on the popular Manhattan model, which we’ve been converting for over a decade, very successfully.

I’ve personally fallen in love with this product for several reasons. The Manhattan VX-e is very reliable, comfortable, drivable, and thanks to our design team it’s also incredibly spacious.

What Does It Mean That the Manhattan VX-e Has Full Time Mains Electric Power?

Most camper vans need to be on a campsite to be able to the same level of power accessible in the Manhattan VX-e. This is because we have replaced the standard LPG tanks with a 300 Ah Power Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery, making it safer.

Now you can travel anywhere you like in safety and reassured in the knowledge that you can use your three ping sockets whenever you want. Those long distances and extended holidays can now go smoother than ever with continued access to those electric necessities.

How Big is the Manhattan VX-e?

Despite being under five meters long, the conversion still maintains a huge amount of room inside. We have continued to include the time-honoured side kitchen rock and roll bed. The rock and roll bed is our own-copyrighted design it’s the easiest to use on the market, and we believe it’s the fastest. It’s been specifically designed to help ensure a good night’s sleep that is quick and easy to set up and put away, watch the video above and decide for yourself!

Some additional features which have become increasingly popular with our clients are the addition of a fully automatic electric pop top roof, a 50 litre fridge and of course a fully electric interior.

Extendable warranty for peace of mind

We give a 12-month warranty on the vehicle (if it is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty) & 36-month warranty on our conversion work, for your complete peace of mind. You can extend this for a further 3 years for a small premium.

Keeping you on the road

Winterising your campervan

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!
