Rolling Homes recently introduced the new entry-level campervan.
All the practicality of a VW camper conversion but at a fraction of the cost is the promise of the new Shackleton, entry-level VW camper conversion.
The Shackleton provides the ideal starting point for anyone looking for their first new motorhome.
“This entry-level camper is built using the same components as the more expensive models,” according to a company statement.
“This has the same level of craftsmanship and attention to detail, but with a softer price tag.”
Based on a VW T5 Transporter, the Shackleton features a front elevating, German SCA deluxe roof, color coded to match the vehicle paintwork, plus handmade, lightweight, real wood veneered board with solid oak edges, extensive cupboards and wardrobes, and solid surface kitchen worktops.
Included is a deluxe bed which gives extra sleeping room for two adults.
A 110 amp/hr marine battery powers the 12v system that runs the compressor fridge, LED lighting, and water pump and is charged when the engine is running or connected to the mains via a discrete 240v hook up.
The layout is a classic side kitchen with the rear seats forming the double bed.
The kitchen offers 50-litre Waeco compressor fridge/freezer, Smev twin-burner hob with integrated sink, water tank, and pump.
At the front a double-passenger seat swivels round to face into the cabin.
All the internal sides are fully insulated with sheep wool and the carpet features a soft, dark-grey trim.
Overall length of the vehicle is 4.89m (16 feet) and the height with the roof extended comes to 3.04m (10 feet).
The basic OTR price is £36,995 ($54,547) but there are a number of extra options that can be specified.
These options include a long wheelbase version, which is £1,200 ($1,770) extra, reversing sensors, awning rails, and awning itself, 75w solar panel, under seat safe, VW bike rack, swiveling driver’s seat and an electric blow heater.
If you want to try out a Rolling Homes campervan before you commit to buying then try hiring one for a short break. If you decide to buy after your rental then Rolling Homes will refund half the hire cost.
Alternatively, just rent one for weekends or an entire week with either the Columbus model with one twin bed and a twin in the roof, or the Livingstone model with a rear kitchen and two single beds and a twin in the roof.
