The British camper van manufacturer Wellhouse Leisure will debut at the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf

Wellhouse Leisure, the leading British campervan manufacturer based in Skelmanthorpe, Huddersfield, is delighted to be showcasing its award-winning Ford Terrier model for the first time at a continental caravan and motorhome show – the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon in Germany. Wellhouse Leisure will be showing its top-of-the-range Terrier M-Sport Camper – in eye-catching red, which will be displayed on the Tecnoform stand in hall 13, stand A33.
The Terrier’s continental debut follows the recent announcement that Wellhouse Leisure has started production of LHD (left hand-drive) models for its first export order, to Ford Switzerland, and as a result, Wellhouse will also be attending another continental show this year – the Suisse Caravan Salon in Berne, Switzerland, from 27 to 31 October 2016.

wellhouse2Wellhouse Leisure was the first campervan manufacturer in the UK to launch a conversion of the new Ford Transit Custom. It worked closely with Ford both during its development and since then to develop a retail network of selected Ford dealers across the UK, and now into mainland Europe. The first Wellhouse Ford Terrier was launched in the UK in October 2013, with an elevating roof and the popular side furniture layout and rock-and-roll seat that converts to a double bed. It was voted ‘The Campervan of the Year 2014’ and shortlisted for the top ‘Motorhome of the Year’ title by experts from two of the UK’s leading motorcaravan magazines, MMM (Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly) and Which Motorhome?.
Over 450 Wellhouse Ford Terriers have been sold since its launch just three years ago. It has broken all sales records for Wellhouse Leisure, which has had to employ extra staff and expand to a new factory so it can now produce 250 vehicles a year to meet demand. David Elliott, Managing Director of Wellhouse Leisure commented:

“We are delighted to be building LHD models and introducing our Ford Terrier campervan to the rest of Europe. We are confident it will prove as popular abroad as it has in the UK. As soon as I saw the new Ford Transit Custom, I knew it would be an ideal base vehicle for a campervan conversion, and has proved to be a great success. It looks fantastic, is great to drive, has great build quality, and comes with a higher specifications, plus all the latest Ford technology to make it convenient to live with, economical to run, and good value”.
