Vantage Motorhomes has announced a collaboration with vehicle design specialists, Motion R Design, to offer a bespoke campervan on the Ford Transit Custom base. The collaboration brings Vantage’s award-winning build quality and interior designs – the Company is known for its thoughtful layouts and quality finishes - together with an exterior styling package and cab upgrades from Motion R that will appeal to a new market for those customers who are looking for a particular design aesthetic. 

Motion R brings a wide range of meticulously engineered upgrades including a full carbon fibre exterior enhancement kit, forged monoblock alloy wheels, diffuser, rear spoiler and much more. In the cab area you will be greeted with full or half Nappa, ergonomically designed carbon fibre, a perforated leather steering wheel, carbon fibre multimedia steering controls and an interior surrounded by more Motion R carbon fibre details.

Michael Hardicker, Managing Director of Vantage Motorhomes, says, ‘We’re very excited about this collaboration. The team at Motion R has decades of experience in the automotive industry. They are passionate about design, taking a standard vehicle and designing styling packages to create something that is not only functional, but also beautiful to look at. At Vantage we have enhanced the conversion and our internal habitation design from our current range of campervans to include other features and styling comparable to the external upgrades from Motion R.’

Lee Bray, Managing Director of Motion R explains, ‘Over the years we have taken some of the world’s best-selling vehicles, both commercial and non-commercial, and given them the aesthetic upgrades they deserve. We design and engineer our body kits, interiors and alloys to OEM+ quality standards ensuring the vehicle not only looks the part but is backed by manufacturer warranties.  We offer several design packages on the Ford Custom and when we saw the interiors of the Vantage campervans we knew that the luxurious finish and clever layout was exactly what our customers would go for. Adding our custom design makes for a perfect collaboration. The team at Vantage share our core values too, especially when it comes to our relationships with customers.’

The Vantage campervan, and the base for the new Motion R campervans, is designed to offer everything needed to ensure a memorable experience. 

With the Ford Transit Custom base it comes in at 4.97m, making it easy to park whether on a busy street or a hard-to-reach getaway. The Reimo Rock and Roll V3000 seating and bed system offers a multi position seating unit for extra storage and easily converts into a comfortable double bed. In addition to a pop-top double bed with ladder access, it also includes features such as Webasto diesel heating and an inbuilt solar panel.

Motion R styling packages will include exterior options for * MR Styling Front Bumper *Carbon Fibre Fog Surrounds *Carbon Fibre Lower Splitter *MR Styling Side Skirts *Carbon Fibre Side Extensions *MR Styling Rear Bumper

*Carbon Fibre Diffuser *Twin Oval Exhausts *MR Styling Roof Spoiler

*Choice of 18” Monoblock Alloys.

Lee Bray adds, ‘We felt the Vantage layout, design and attention to detail couldn’t be beaten. Adding our custom design, particularly to the exterior means we can offer our customers a superior campervan that exceeds their expectations and looks as extraordinary on the outside as it is comfortable and practical on the inside.’

You can see the Motion R Campervan at Vantage’s factory facility in Leeds, at the Motion R showroom in Chorley, Lancashire or on display at the Caravan Camping & Motorhome Show at the NEC Show in February.
