SsangYong has turned an MPV into a campervan for two people

SsangYong Turismo Tourist CamperEver-resourceful value brand SsangYong has revealed its latest special-build vehicle – a campervan version of its big Turismo MPV called the Turismo Tourist Camper.

Set to cost from £29,995, the two-berth motorhome has been remodelled with an elevating roof, swivel seats in the front, rear tailgate awning, a hob, a fridge, a toilet and, yes, even a kitchen sink.

The seats fold to create twin beds (they have in-fill cushions and fancy memory foam toppers), and a four-berth version is optional.

The hob slides out the back so you can use it outdoors, a bit like a barbeque, and SsangYong will sell you optional Eberspacher central heating, a mains hook-up and a solar panel.

The conversion has been carried out by motorhome experts Wellhouse Leisure, which “has done an excellent job in creating such a great vehicle for the booming leisure market,” said SsangYong Motor UK CEO Paul Williams.

“Turismo is one of the largest cars on the market, and in standard form offers seating for seven adult passengers and their luggage, and therefore ideal for conversion into a two-person campervan.”

Powered by a 2.2-litre turbodiesel, the Turismo Tourist Camper produces 178hp and has either a six-speed manual or Mercedes-Benz seven-speed automatic, and either front- or four-wheel drive.

It’s also probably the only campervan on sale in the UK to have a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.

The new SsangYong Turismo Tourist Camper goes on show today at the Motorhome & Caravan Show at Birmingham’s NEC: the show runs until 16 October.
